XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX SAT OCT 23, 2004 13:02:38 ET XXXXX

CHER ISSUES BUSH WARNING AT DISCO

Only a couple hundred came out to see Cher Friday night at Miami Beach's CROBAR disco, but that did not stop the legendary diva from issuing an election warning against Republican control.

_ "There were supposed to be thousands of people here tonight. I'm not sure why that didn't happen, obviously the people putting on this thing were just_not very good at it," an embarrassed Cher explained to the crowd.

"Alright, but you guys are_here, that's_right. When I was coming down the steps I though 'Oh_s**t,_well I'll just go out there and give it my best.'"_

The MIAMI HERALD had reported thousands were expected to rally at the discotheque.

Cher warned moveon.org clubgoers to fight Bush, before "it's too late":

"All the gay guys, all my friends, all my gay friends, you guys_you have got to vote, alright? Because it would only be a matter of time before you guys would be so screwed, I cannot tell you._Because, you know, the people, like, in the very right wing of this party, of these Republicans, the very very right wing, the Jerry Falwell element, if they get any more power, you guys are going to be living in some state by yourselves. So, I hate scare tactics, but I really believe that that's true."

_ "I_think that_as Bush will, if Bush gets elected, he will put in new_Superior_Court judges, and these guys are not going to want to see gay pride week."

_ Cher declared that Abraham Lincoln "looks like Kerry on a crappy day."

Political activist Rosie O'Donnell is set to witness on Saturday night in Ft Lauderdale. O'Donnell will speak on Bush and his policies in Iraq at hotspot CLUB OVATION.

now i am not going to get into the political aspect of this, but if you are going to get up in a public forum and speak on the political process shouldn't you at least correctly know what the hell you are talking about?

The last time thousands of people lined up to hear Cher was when Sonny was still around.

How typical of an ego-inflated leftist elitest hollywood liberal, blame someone else.

Next, maybe Drudge can tell us about how some lounge singer at a Chamber of Commerce function told everyone to support Bush.

Apparently thousands of expected rallyists don't give a crap what Cher thinks. I commend their common sense.

Probably, but not in the way they think. When these pompous asses denigrate regular people, they vote for the other guy.

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX SUN OCT 24, 2004 12:00:01 ET XXXXX

FEW DOZEN TURN OUT TO HEAR ROSIE O'DONNELL ELECTION PREACH

**Exclusive**

Rosie O'Donnell addressed a nearly vacant CLUB OVATION Saturday night in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida during a get-out-the-vote rally for Dem presidential hopeful John Kerry.

"You know, there's only like, you know, maybe 38 of us here and maybe we can just like tap a keg and put on some disco, and totally party," O'Donnell deadpanned.

The debacle came one night after only a couple hundred came out to see Cher rally for Kerry at Miami Beach's CROBAR disco.

"There were supposed to be thousands of people here tonight. I'm not sure why that didn't happen, obviously the people putting on this thing were just not very good at it," an embarrassed Cher explained to the crowd.

A top Florida Democratic party official dismissed the weak back-to-back club turnouts as any indication of voter enthusiasm for the Kerry candidacy.

MORE

At CLUB OVATION Rosie endorsed Kerry's assertion in debate that America needs to pass a "global test" before acting in the world.

"The best part to me in the entire debate was when John Kerry said we have to pass a global test before we enter into a war. And you see George Bush got all nervous because frankly the word 'test' terrifies him," O'Donnell said to scattered chuckles.

"He never passed one at Harvard or Yale, but whatever. But there is a global test. It's the global test of decency, of humanity, of integrity. That's what our country stands for as we lead the free world. Let's take back our country. Let's elect John Kerry."

Rosie said the Bush Administration's actions go "against the foundation of what our country was built on," giving example of Administration telling the "United Nations we would ignore their doctrine and their resolutions."

MORE

Rosie continued: "Every single thing this White House has done goes against the foundation of what our country was built on. For us to tell the United Nations we would ignore their doctrine and their resolutions, for us to say that we will not adhere to the Geneva Convention during this war. We are America, we are better than that. We were built on the foundation of freedom and truth and equality for all people. And the rich, corporate, horrible, horrible people who have been destructing and ruining everything this country was made on has been really unbelievably damaging to all of us spiritually, emotionally, monetarily."

Rosie advised the audience to ignore any and all media in last days of the election race and to keep telling themselves "Kerry by a landslide!"

"Just remember this, don't believe the media in these last nine days. Tell yourself every day when you wake up and every morning when you have a worry or a doubt or whether you believe FOXNEWS: Kerry by a landslide. Because America knows the difference between genuine and junk."

MORE

Finally, Rosie spent an inordinate amount of time at the end of her speech cracking jokes about THE VIEW co-host Star Jones, suggesting that the daytime diva's weight loss was not the product of "diet and exercise," but of plastic surgery:

"Star Jones is my body double. She's getting smaller every day. I'm telling you ladies, it's diet and exercise. [Rosie pauses giving disbelieving look, then makes popping noises as she motions around her body implying plastic surgery] No problem, [singing] 'I believe in dissolution.' Okay, that's fine. She's alright. She's married to some guy, it's fine. Ah huh. Yeah. The thing is -- it's fine, it's alright, leave it. What do I care? I don't even watch TV in the day... He is a cute boy. And I'm gonna leave it there because I see that camera rolling. And all the Kerry thing will go away and it'll be 'Rosie O'Donnell Attacks Star Jones!' And in the Enquirer it'll be 'Crazy Lesbian Goes Insane At A Kerry Rally.'"

I don't begrudge celebrities for stating their political views, but I think it's pretty accurate to say that nobody gives a shit what some washed-up over the hill, 5 years past being the center box on Hollywood Squares has-been, has to say about anything other than who they fucked and how they self-destructed on booze and drugs, as they hit rock bottom.
