The Great Pretender

Via the Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds, the latest from Chrissie Hynde, currently touring as a Keith-Richards-wannabe Geezerette Rock Survivortm:
Between songs, the pugnacious Hynde, in a classic black T-shirt and jeans, bantered and battled with the crowd. She dedicated "You Know Who Your Friends Are" to "all you junkies and f--," gave a shout-out to the late Joe Strummer, opined that she hopes the United States loses if it goes to war with Iraq ("Bring it on! Give us what we deserve!"), and introduced the song "Fools Must Die" with the self-deprecating quip, "I'll show you how it's done."
First, who the hell are you calling "us"? Second, I hope you break a hip. And third, for the love of GOD, stop invoking Joe Strummer; it's the kind of cheap appeal to sentiment he'd rightly have punched you in the face for.
