I ran across this article and just had to share it. I love watching the Osbournes and can just imagine Ozzie doing this to Dubya. He cracks me up. Who would have ever dreamed he would have become such a mainstream media star? Especially 25 years ago? Before MTV. <br><br>People News Online <br>May 6, 2002 <br>Ozzy Osbourne Goes to Washington <br><br>The scene: Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington, D.C. Cast: The press corps, plus stars Harrison Ford, Christie Brinkley, Raquel Welch, Sally Field, Drew Carey and Glenn Close. All told, there were 2,700 guests at the Washington Hilton for the banquet. But, reports The Washington Post, there was no mistaking the biggest stars of the event, besides President Bush: -- MTV stars Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, who were the guests of Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren. Asked by a reporter before the meal what he would ask the president should they meet, Ozzy, 53, replied: "Dual citizenship. I want to be an American. America is the coolest place on the face of the earth. You've got freedom of speech. You've got McDonald's." Sharon, 49, wore a Gothic midnight-blue ball gown, reports The Post, which described Ozzy's outfit as a Gothic blur of black and magenta and pink and blue -- "the clothes, the hair, the shades, the tattoos." Ozzy, who was seated at Table 168, did get a chance to speak to Bush, at Table 1 -- sort of. Secret-servicemen separated the two, says The Post, though the distance didn't deter Ozzy from saluting the Chief Executive, who nodded back in acknowledgement. "You should wear your hair like mine!" Ozzy shouted to President Bush. At first, the president silently turned red, then cracked his famous little smile, says the Post. "Second term, Ozzy!" the president replied. <br><br><br>Cheers, iRock<br>Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.<br>— Salvador Dali
I saw some video of Ozzy there last night on Headline News. I have been a fan of Ozzy since like 81. <br><br>Who would have thought the man who got banned at the Alamo years ago would be a guest there?! Heh..and I do like the show, whenever I can remember that it's on.<br><br>And even cooler is how much he likes the U.S. <br><br>
I can't believe that dribbling idiot is on TV and getting so much attention... then again, I watched the show once or twice and laughed my ass off!<br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>
