Kelsey Grammer will be the M.C. at a kickoff inaugural gala honoring the military, the rap artist Kid Rock will perform at an inaugural youth concert ...
--Elisabeth Bumiller in today's New York Times
Yes, I'm repeating myself, but I want to point out once again that Grammer has had multiple arrests for drunk driving and cocaine possession, has been accused of statutory rape by the parents of a babysitter, and once might have dressed in drag while having sex with a porn actress (none of which has quelled speculation that he might someday run for Senate as a Republican). And Kid Rock's song catalogue includes such morally inspiring ballads as "Fuck U Blind," "Killin' Brain Cells," "3 Sheets to the Wind (What's My Name)," and "Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp."
"I understand most American families do not look to Hollywood as a source of values."
