Shut up and sing, Jessica

Apparently everyone's favorite no-longer-a-virgin newlywed, Jessica Simpson, has joined the august ranks of Bush-supporting celebrities, finding a place alongside Larry Gatlin, Toby Keith, Wayne Newton and Ted Nugent. Welcome, Jessica!

Oh, and then there's that little matter of a major concert tour designed to unseat Bush. But that's not news. Nothing to see here. Damn those celebrities and their platforms!

My irrepressible cynicism tells me that if there were cadres of right-wing celebrities willing to make movies, write books, attend premieres, dedicate songs and go on tour in support of the administration and other conservative candidates, the whole "Shut up and sing!" campaign would not exist.

Jealousy is a bitch.
