Annie Lennox updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@annielennox) on Monday (October 13), weighing in on the current global credit crisis and November’s U.S. elections. The Eurythmics singer writes:
Well..the recent “western” world economic events have left everyone with that feeling of queasy uncertainty… coupled with the countdown to the US elections, these are wobbly times on this side of the bed indeed. I’m not a US citizen, but I can tell you that people are watching this campaign with baited breath all around the world. I’ve said my piece about Sarah Palin.. no need to repeat. America is a divided country… those who “get” the bigger picture, and those who don’t. Those who get suckered in by a neat hairstyle and a folksy wink, and those who realize that you have to have a bit more “substance” to be a world leader… Or do you??? It’s down to the citizens to make the choice.. This is where democracy gets scary, because the “majority” don’t always know what’s best.
