Just Shut Up and Sing
Nobody should care what a somewhat pudgier singer from the 80s thinks about American politics. I guess there is some backlash from Morrissey's recent comments that he wished it was Bush who was dead instead of Reagan. The backlash shouldn't surprise anyone, considering Morrissey's original fans are now in their 30s and 40s and many have made the turn to the darkside. With performers whose work I admire, I usually just let this stuff slide, but hoping that people die isn't really an admirable characteristic.

But, whatever. If I were to throw away CD's because I didn't like the band's politics, I'm not going to be left with all that much to listen to.
