Amazing paradox: Alice Cooper weighs in

Hardly your typical conservative, rock star Alice Cooper comments on the recent trend of Bush-bashing among other artists:
"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't know musicians made a career out of making music.
"Besides, when I read the list of people who are supporting Kerry, if I wasn't already a Bush supporter, I would have immediately switched. Linda Ronstadt? Don Henley? Geez, that's a good reason right there to vote for Bush."

Linda Ronstadt -- understandable. But...whoa! Don Henley, of the Eagles? You've gone too far. Then again, Cooper said we shouldn't listen to rock stars for advice, so perhaps his words will go unheeded. Did he just call himself a moron intelligently? Amazing paradox.
