    Bill Clinton Wins Second Grammy

    Sun Feb 13, 6:13 PM ET

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton (news - web sites) won the second Grammy Award of his career on Sunday, when he was honored in the spoken word category for his best-selling memoir "My Life."
    Clinton, who was not present to accept his award at the Los Angeles Convention Center, also won a Grammy last year in the spoken word for children category. His wife, U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (news - web sites), won a spoken word Grammy in 1997 for her memoir "It Takes A Village."

    I haven't heard Bill's reading but I have heard some of Hillary's monotone , inhuman , drivel . . . I now understand why the Grammys have become such a joke.

    The music industry - what a joke! I firmly believe that they would give Bill a grammy for a recording of his constipated groaning.

    Kind of makes you nostalgic for the good old days of - say - Milli Vanilli, doesn't it?

    I do. I am a musician, and I resent seeing one of the great loves of my life bastardized in the name of politics.

    And, no - I don't mean Bill.

    Maybe you shouldn't take mainstream awards ceremonies so seriously.

    Sample , your generation's word for stealing something from someone who is actually creative and pretending it's yours . I do agree , who gives a fuck about such crap as fiddy cent , usher , punk daddy , or any of the other talentless asswipes that clog up the radio dial .

    Personally, I don't. But, they function as the canary in the coal mine - giving us a general idea of our culture's air quality.

    We're dying.

    Agreed, SE. Funny how they still call popular music the voice of rebellion, while all the artists line up in lockstep with the correct liberal views. They all look the same, they all sound the same, and they all parrot political orthodoxy.

    Maybe soon a real rebel will come along!
