Et Tu, Mick?

Reason #493 not to pay any attention to the political views of most celebrities: this, from the Rolling Stones' upcoming album A Bigger Bang:
...The most searing moment, on a song called "Sweet Neo Con," isn't personal but political. "You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite/You call yourself a patriot, well I think you're full of s--t."
'Sweet Neo Con'? Oh, how have the mighty fallen...it's a long way from 'What can a poor boy do / 'cept to sing for a rock'n'roll band/ 'cause a sleepy London town just ain't no place for a street fighting man' to tripe like that...
