Quote of the Day

CNN'S SOLEDAD O’BRIEN: There is a whole school of thought, as you well know, that says that musicians – I mean you see it with the Dixie Chicks - you know, go play your music and stop.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: Well, if you turn it on, present company included, the idiots rambling on on cable television on any given night of the week, and you’re saying that musicians shouldn’t speak up? It’s insane. It’s funny.

O’BRIEN: As a musician though, I’d be curious to know if there is a concern that you start talking about politics, you came out at one point and said, I think in USA Today listen, the country would be better off if George Bush were replaced as President. Is there a worry where you start getting political and you could alienate your audience?

SPRINGSTEEN: Well that’s called common sense. I don’t even see that as politics at this point. So I mean that’s, you know, you can get me started, I’ll be glad to go. […] You don’t take a country like the United States into a major war on circumstantial evidence. You lose your job for that. That’s my opinion, and I have no problem voicing it. And some people like it and some people boo ya, you know?
From Blue Jersey via Skippy (and note, as Blue Jersey does, that Springsteen says "included," not "excluded," although being a gentleman, I'm sure he's referring to CNN in general, not Soledad O'Brien specifically).

Which word can you stretch out the longest, "goooooooaaaaaaaal" or "Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuce"? Actually both are appropriate here.

Why stop here? There's more...
