Madonna Concerts Implies McCain-Hitler Connection

The camp of Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain angrily scored pop singer Madonna Sunday for a concert that appeared to compare the candidate with Hitler and Zimbabwe strongman Robert Mugabe. "The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," said Tucker Bounds, spokesman for Sen. McCain's campaign.

During Madonna's song Get Stupid, an image popped up alongside depictions of Sen. McCain, Hitler and Mugabe. When the song was over, images appeared of Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, John Lennon and former United States vice-president Al Gore.
