Leaving the indies but staying on the article, I want to make two points by excerpting the following passage:
While President Obama has attracted the support of the Foo Fighters, Dave Matthews, the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, who penned a short missive backing Obama’s reelection effort, Team Romney has the decidedly less hip Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, and others in his back pocket.
See there, gals, you get screwed over so stop whoring. Ani DiFranco, you whored the last bits of your good name. And the Barack supporters don't even give a damn. All you did was piss off your base that expects you to come out for a Green Party candidate. Madonna, you old whore, no one gives a damn.
So before the next woman whores her good name in an attempt to give a War Hawk like Barack four more years to kill people with his drones, she should realize that they don't give a damn about women, they never do.
That's point one.
Point two? I had no idea Nickelback was for Romney. I will make a point to listen with fresh ears when they release their next album. How come? That choice goes against the grain and is brave considering the climate. I didn't know they could be brave or go against the grain. I'll make a point to listen to their next release and re-evaluate them.
I'm not surprised about Kid Rock but I do wonder how his 'good friend' Sheryl Crow handles that. 3 Doors Down also surprises me (the same way Nickleback did).
I wish someone was endorsing third parties. Are they? Am I missing it? Maybe the press isn't covering it.
If you know a rocker that endorsed a third party presidential candidate, let me know and I'll note them hear -- endorsed in the 2012 election.
