Today's contrived controversy

Gas is $4.00 a gallon, we're stuck in a war in Iraq that's killed over 4,000 American servicemen and women, people are losing their homes in record numbers and the polar ice cap is melting.

But this is what the media is fixated on: Miley Cyrus's "nude" photos in Vanity Fair magazine shot by Annie Liebovitz.

In the story that accompanies the article in VF Miley says: "You can't say no to Annie...She's so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look, and you're like, OK."

A lot of words come to mind when I think of Annie Liebovitz but "cute" isn't one of them!

(However the puppy dog look doesn't always work and Annie doesn't always get her way. Look what happened when she tried to get the queen to remove her tiara last year.)

Meanwhile, Miley, apparently at the urging of her Disney handlers, has changed her tune about the shoot--that was attended by her father--"I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic,' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed."

Uh, yeah...sure! Miley like every other 15 year old girl, seemingly changes her mind every 15 minutes.

The New York Post, that overseer of America's morals, called the photos "MILEY'S SHAME" on its front page. But not all that shameful as they chose to run one of the sleazy pics. Must have done wonders for newsstand sales.

And according to Vanity Fair, the nefarious photo shoot has parents threatening to host Hannah Montana bonfire parties. Great! Once again Americans will get to demonstrate how infantile they can really be!
