Much has been made about Britney Spears’ whirlwind hospitalization/mental breakdown/attention whoring. It took four hours to get her, loads of cops, and even more paparazzi. Normally, I wouldn’t bat an eye about it. But the timing is odd. Of all the times to get crazy, why pick the morning after Barak Obama’s historic win in Iowa?
Instead of headlines lauding Obama’s brillance, we get posts about Britney’s madness.
Chuck Norris may support Mike Huckabee, Scarlett Johannson may be the new Obama Girl, but Britney Spears works for the man.
Don’t believe me?
Check out the Idolator’s timeline with Spears’ antics occurring when it suits the White House:
November 6, 2006
PRESIDENT BUSH’s Republican party faces one of its most hotly contested elections in years, with 33 Senate seats and 435 House seats up for grabs; meanwhile, BRITNEY SPEARS faces one of her most hotly contested separations in years, announcing her split with Kevin Federline.
April 11, 2006
The Washington Post reports that, thanks to the ceaseless casualties of the Iraq war, PRESIDENT BUSH’s approval ratings have hit an all-time low of 38 percent; meanwhile, the Associated Press reports that, thanks to ceaseless questions from Malibu child-welfare agents, BRITNEY SPEARS’ parenting skills have hit an all-time low.
January 5, 2004
PRESIDENT BUSH attempts to divorce himself from the Valerie Plame scandal, encouraging his staff to talk to investigators; meanwhile, BRITNEY SPEARS attempts to divorce herself from Jason Alexander, discouraging her soon-to-be-ex from talking to the press.
February 15, 2002
PRESIDENT BUSH authorizes a plan to dump 77,000 tons of radioactive waste in a mountain in Nevada, despite local opposition; meanwhile, BRITNEY SPEARS dumps out Crossroads, her first movie.
Coincidence? We think not: Don’t forget that this is the same singer who defended Bush in the last Michael Moore movie, and who was rumored to have been caught “mid-canoodle” with Karl Rove during a 2002 Cirque de Soleil show in Rome. Sometimes she runs–and sometimes she hides–but Spears’ wild-style behavior is always just a few heartbeats away from the presidency.
So forget all the talk about Dr. Phil’s Britney Spears suicide watch, she’s far too valuable for that.
But if she ever is called to pull a Monroe, expect Hell!
