CELEBRITY LEADERS OF THE CHE CULT:
We all know how popular the image of Che Guevara is.  It is revolutionary chic these days.  I am devoting this area to the most visible members of the Che Cult, popular figures from entertainment and sports.

Madonna: The High Priestess
Not content with merely wearing Che’s image, Madonna channels Che. This image is the cover art for her album American Life which she supported with an entire Che-alike photo shoot.  She may study the Kabbalah but she worships at the altar of a murderer, nice. I liked her more when she was just a "material girl."

Mike Tyson: The Doorkeeper
Mike Tyson guards the door to the temple of death. A glorified bouncer, he actually felt compelled to desecrate his body with Guevara’s image.  When I was younger I thought Tyson was going to be the Rocky Marciano of my generation, retiring undefeated.  Now he is washed up.  He has even tried cannibalism.  Where can I sign up for the Buster Douglas Fan Club?

Johnny Depp: The Lector
Hollywood’s favorite expatriate, Johnny Depp shows off his T-shirt.  The jacket, incidentally, is supposed to have belonged to Jack Kerouac.  Johnny has been spending too much time trying to find Neverland. 

Jay-Z: The Vocalist
Leading the Che Guevara Tabernacle Choir is Rapper Jay-Z.  What church would be complete without its vocalists? Can I hear an Amen?

Carlos Santana: The Guitarist
Leading the musicians is Grammy award-winning guitarist Carlos Santana.  This photo was taken at the Oscars, where he proclaimed that "Guevara is the man."  Yep, if you are one of at least 159 mothers, then he is the man responsible for your son’s death!

Diego Maradona: The Jester
This clown not only sports a Guevara tattoo but also lives in Cuba and is a buddy of Fidel Castro.  Brings new meaning to expression dumb jock.


Others
known to have been seen wearing Che on their sleeve, so to speak, include: Singer Thalia, Rapper Missy Elliot, Leggy Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and Actress Elizabeth Hurley.  If you want to add to this list or have any photos send them to me by clicking the “feedback” link.
