    Lady Gaga gave a speech about DADT the other day. Sure, Lady Gaga. Do what you want to do. It's cool that she is supporting a political cause and tons of people will follow her blindly off a cliff no matter what she advocates, but it's hard for normal people to take a podium performance seriously from a meat-dress wearing, loose-associating caricature.

    DADT is a hot-button issue, with real stakes, and real constitutional conflict. Should we really entrust the campaigning for or against to a glasses-wearing cartoon who speaks like a robot (and sometimes like an angry robot)? Not to mention, her speech isn't exactly award winning in structure, organization, pacing, or total cohesion. But whatever. You can decide for yourself.

    A sample: "Equality is the prime rib of America. But because I'm gay, I don't get to enjoy the greatest cut of beef my country has to offer".

    The speech:



    Should have stayed speechless (Yes, that was an "I'm familiar with Lady Gaga songs" joke). Whatever, she's still better than that auto-tuned compost heap Ke$ha. -joe puglisi
