Michael Jackson isn't completely insane

He may look inhuman and be 99% nutz BUT:

NY POST/By DAVID K. LI ------------------------------------- (from May 2003)

A mask-wearing, Taco Bell-craving Michael Jackson popped in to see his local congressman in California, demanding to know why there's no fast food restaurant near Neverland, published reports said. The King of Pop, wearing a Spider-Man mask, and his bodyguards went to the Solvang, Calif., district office of U.S. Rep. Elton Gallegly two weeks ago, asking why Solvang doesn't have fast food, according to yesterday's Santa Barbara News-Press.
All the congressman's staff could do was tell Jacko that Solvang has a Subway sandwich store, to which the Gloved One replied: "I love Taco Bell."
After signing autographs, Jackson and his entourage took off for nearby Buellton, Calif., and hit a Taco Bell/Pizza Hut drive-through and scored two cheese pizzas, breadsticks and three soft chicken tacos, the paper reported.
Steve Lavagnino, deputy director of Gallegly's Solvang office, confirmed Jackson's visit to The Post. He also confirmed the details of Jackson's visit, as reported by the Santa Barbara paper, but refused additional comments.
"It was interesting," Lavagnino told The Post.
A kitschy Santa Barbara County tourist town, Solvang is about six miles south of The Gloved One's Neverland Ranch. The Danish-themed Solvang has no fast food other than Subway.
Lavagnino said his boss in Washington, D.C., got a laugh out of the close encounter.
"Elton laughed," he said. "He said, 'Everything's downhill. Who else can come in now?' It's very hard to top that visit. My first week in the office, and I get the most famous person on the planet."

wow liz! elton gallegly SUCKS! i used to canvass his constituents and they are so republican and christian. they suck big time and think of no one but themselves. his constituents are gas guzzling, bible thumping, cheap vinyl siding house builders...they all live in mcmansions which look like taco bells....but ultimately, there is no taco bell in his region. he should take some advice from Lois Capps, who is the rep in neighboring santa barbara. she is VERY liberal and has some of the best taco bells in her county. i did not say much about jacko...but i will give him kudos.

Sometimes things you have in common with celebrities is disturbing.

mcmansions look like taco bells? maybe jacko has tried the drive through at some of those houses and found, disappointingly, no tacos...or pizzas.

i like to think our similiarities to jacko begin and end with taco bell.

Spider Man? You know you're in bad shape when you think that wearing a Spidey mask will make you less noticeable...

Danish themed? Of course the closest town to Neverland pretends to be Danish. What else, really.
