Senator Bob Dole, who wants the Republican presidential nomination
bad, has led a PR campaign against rap and rock music by such artists
as NIN, Dre, and Snoop. None other than Madonna, fresh from one-upping
Courtney Love several times during a Kurt Loder refereed verbal sparing
match, mocked Dole during the MTV Music Video Awards. "Bob Dole is sorry he
couldn't be here today to give the award for best rap video," said Madonna.
Dole has since responded that he's happy to get attacked by Madonna. "I hope
they keep it up,'" he said. "It helps me every day ...
if Madonna takes me on. I've never met her, she's welcome to come
to my office." Don't count on it.
