WEDNESDAY'S GREGALOGUE: GRASSY KNOLL? MORE LIKE ASSY KNOLL.

So in her most recent video for her song "Window Seat," performer Erykah Badu removes all of her clothes while walking along the path where JFK was shot.

In a way, it's like strip poker for Oliver Stone.

Offended? Not me. This is daring! Edgy! Flabby!

Check it out, check it outers

(start at 4:24 to when she gets naked.)

Now that's artsy! Wanna know how arsty? Well, the Washington Post describes it as a "big, bold artistic statement!" And they should know - they employ Howard Kurtz's hair.

Back to the nude thing - which to many is seen as daring, when it's really just unfair... to me.

Consider if I did the same thing as Erykah, say, in Bryant Park, around three a.m. I'd get hauled in. Don't ask me how I know this - I just do. (I didn't even get my action beads back.)

But the video doesn't end there. After all - nudity is so Demi Moore, Vanity Faire 1991 - we need something really shocking.

(go to 4:56 when she's shot)

Didn't see that coming. Well, actually I did. We all did.

Now, one could say that the real silliness of this video is how this "artist" makes a national tragedy about herself. It's beyond narcissism - it's super-duper-quadruple-narcissism. Maybe next video, she'll dress up like the World Trade Center. The planes could be Big Macs.

But, it gets worse. At the end of the video, she gives a speech. Hear it out, hear it outers...

(start tape at 5:04)

Okay, let me get this straight. She says...

"They move in packs, ingesting more fear with every act of hate...."
"They feel most comfortable in groups - less guilt to swallow."
"They play it safe, are quick to assassinate what they do not understand."
"They are us."

Hmm...wonder who she means!

So, let's digest this: America is full of angry hate groups who are out to kill our leader. I mean, that has to be the message: why else would she reenact the JFK assassination - and end with that finger-wagging speech?

But her dopiness is magnified by a simple fact: the man who killed JFK was a pathetic loner, drenched in commie ideology. For her to ignore that simple fact, in order to condemn "us" as nefarious assassins - makes her worse than offensive. It's makes her boring.

Yes, Erykah, you're boring. You're just another conformist playing in an echo chamber - desperate to revive a flailing career by parroting the same crap you'd find in a daily kos chat room.

Worse of all - the song sucks. Erykah - congrats - you put the bad in badu.

And if you disagree with me, you're probably a racist homophobe who hasn't seen Precious.
