Hey, maybe Oprah can try resuscitating Whitney's career on her show again! Waddya think, eh?

Oprah's done that with charlatan book writers, nutritionists and others who worked beneath her label before. She even did it with King Obama.

Maybe she can pull Whitney's sorry butt back out of Satan's arms, too.

Bobby would be happy.

Very sad. I feel sorry for her family. Her version of the national anthem was spectacular. It's not an easy song, even for a professional singer. She really put her heart into it. She made a lot of really good music. RIP.

Bobby Brown was the one with the real talent and suspect in time he will find a way to cash in , make money from Whitneys death.

It was a fine rendition of the national anthem, for sure, but the circumstances amounted to virtual cheerleading for the First Gulf War. That sort of warmongering, interventionism, and conflict fallout has damaged this country and the Middle East ever since, so the appeal to 'patriotism' surrounding her performance is really kind of embarrassing and even shameful, in retrospect.

I do offer condolences to the family, however, and while not a fan I had to respect her powerful voice and her artistic abilities. R.I.P., Whitney.

"Sorry" would seem to be a pretty good self-description for you.

"Satan's arms" - jeez, what malicious, superstitious drivel. to be expected from a right wing Republican, I suppose.

You are using her death as a moment to take a jab at the first gulf war?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Do you also tell jokes at funerals and urinate at baptisms?

Weird, dood. Really weird stuff....

Get lost. No one asked for your jaundiced opinion. Some of us are honest enough to say what we really think - obviously not something you're used to doing.

Just pointing out your own vile attack on the deceased, which means in light of your comments to me above that you're also a STINKING hypocrite.

Like most right wingers, of course.

As screwed up as your thinking is, I'd have second thoughts being honest about them, dood.
