Couldnt have said it better myself, Nick on the E$tefan/Obama love fe$t:
In her introductory remarks at yesterday’s fundraiser, Gloria Estefan said this:
The beauty of this amazing nation is that anything is possible! Even hosting a very political evening to get the “ear” of my President when I am politically non-affiliated but the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. put it succinctly when he said “We may have all come on different ships but we’re in the same boat now!”
When I think of “anything being possible” in America, being able to talk to the president because he asked me to raise his political party a bunch of money isn’t exactly what comes to mind. And “politically non-affiliated”? Really? Again, I’m no political analyst, but unless you also host an RNC fundraiser, organizing a DNC one is about as politically-affiliated as you can get.
We should all defend the Estefans’ right to put their money and their time wherever they want. But no matter where you stand on domestic politics, it’s pretty clear they’ve chosen to put that time and money in the most divisive place possible. That’s not the sort of thinking that’ll make people want them leading the Cuban exile community in any more marches.
