NFL's Hypocrisy In Hiring Madonna For Super Bowl's Half-Time Show

The American Thinker's Ralph Alter has an interesting take on the NFL's decision to hire Madonna for the half-time Super Bowl act when Indianapolis hosts the big event at Lucas Oil Stadium in February. Alter notes the many foibles of Madonna overlooked by the NFL, while just one "inappropriate" comment made by country music star Hank Williams, Jr. caused it to sever its ties with the performer when he compared House Speaker John Boehner sharing a golf game with President Barack Obama to Hitler playing golf with Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu.
The selection of Sean Penn's ex-wife as the star performer for the half-time show at Super Bowl XLVI is so wrong-headed that it could appear have been made by Mr. Penn himself. Madonna's success in the music industry is exceeded only by her flagrant exhibitionism and her moral depravity . . .  
She abandoned a number of husbands, including Hugo Chavez's best pal, Mr. Penn, and abandoned the U.S. to take up citizenship first in the U.K. and then in Malawi after a spree of buying children from that African nation . . .
Madonna's hyper-sexuality and tawdry image are legendary. She behaves like a living breathing advertisement for STDs. Have you had a look at the Venereal Girl lately? She is as scrawny and vascular as your typical vegan yet remains unafraid to flaunt her tired goods in the gossip rags. Please keep these [NSFW] photos away from small children and other living things.
Alter wonders whether Colts' owner Jim Irsay, who led the drive to prevent Rush Limbaugh from becoming an NFL team owner, had something to do with the decision to hire Madonna:
Somehow the NFL saw fit to invite her to perform as their representative to the American people during their biggest event of the year. The game is being hosted in Indianapolis, I must wonder if the local team's owner, Jim Irsay, had something to do with this. Irsay is an unrepentant hippie, owner of the original Jack Kerouac scroll manuscript for "On the Road" and keeps the locals entertained with his half-witted submissions to Twitter. He is a complete Twidiot and led the drive to prevent Rush Limbaugh from participating as an owner in the NFL via the purchase of the St. Louis Rams franchise. He is now in the process of completely destroying the Colt's franchise with his ineptitude. The Colts are currently 0-12.
Alter hits it out of the park when he notes that Madonna's 2008 concert tour featured images comparing GOP presidential candidate John McCain to . . . . drum roll please . . . . . Hitler, of course. Sorry, Hank. The Material Girl has a place in the hearts of the NFL team owners that's crowded out any room for you.

It was ESPN's Decision (ABC, Disney) to pull Hank, not the NFL's. The Super Bowl this year is on NBC who I am sure had a lot of input on the half time selection. I don't think your blame directed toward the NFL is properly directed.


I think Madonna is an amazingly talented artist. If I had to watch the whole football game, at least I would enjoy the middle part at half time.

I think Sean Penn is a great actor.

I can separate politics from my actors and singers.

The NFL control everything to do with its broadcasts. If you think they let the networks make all the decisions, you're not familiar with how the NFL operates. You can bet a half-time act at the Super Bowl is subject to NFL approval.

I think that Madonna is beautiful, but vulgar.
