Elton John speaks out on Hillary and misogyny

So what?

Some random thoughts here.

1) My, Elton John's getting old and pudgy (as are we all, I confess). All the glitter in the world can't make you look cool past a certain point. No doubt his lifestyle complicates things.

2) Why do famous (and infamous) aliens -- who don't even live here -- feel they have the right to speak out on candidates in our elections? If Ben Stein or George Clooney -- both famous Americans, but of very different political views -- went to London and spoke out on whom they favored in the next UK election, the British public and news media would be horrified at their inserting themselves where they didn't belong.
