Linda Ronstadt Doesn't Want You In Her Audience

If you’re a Republican or fundamental Christian, that is. In a gushing profile in The San Diego Union-Tribune she’s quoted as saying:

“It’s a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I’d rather not know.”

The remark goes uncommented on by the paper.

Whatever happened to the days when music was supposed to be a unifying force? Bringing people together? Plug in any other phrases in place of “Republican or fundamental Christian” and imagine what the outrage would be.

So why isn’t this paper crying foul?

Update: Sgt. Mom of Team Stryker has some thoughts on what Rachel Lucas would probably dub ass-hatted celebrities.
