Judge them by the company they keep: Congress hates Howard Stern but loves Michael Jackson
: Wonkette has an exclusive report from Michael Jackson’s inexplicable visit to Congress.
The Gloved One’s entourage is a chaotic storm of confusion and unease — it lacks the dignity of other star entourages who sweep down corridors, exhibiting confidence and projecting power. Everyone in the Gloved One’s group — bodyguards, handlers, apologists — all look haggered and confused, but the haggardness and confusion looks self imposed. The group looks like it could use an adult to whack it upside the head, to tell everyone to straighten up, settle down, and then the whole damn pack wouldn’t look so silly.
: Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee on Today about her meeting with Jackson today: “We’ll actually be discussing real issues.” Wow, real issues.
