Breaking Format: I’d Love To See Kid Rock At The Bush Inauguration
Nine times out of ten, I agree with Michelle Malkin, but I have to disagree with her stance on letting Kid Rock play the Republican inauguration.
Here’s what Michelle had to say about the groups protesting Kid Rock playing inauguration,
“I applaud them. Some “South Park conservative-” types are ridiculing the protesters. “Lighten up,” they say. But I’m with the family groups on this. The inaugural celebrations should highlight the best the GOP has to offer. A guy who, as World Net Daily points out, “dedicated his first album to songs about oral sex and who was voted the Sluttiest Male Celebrity at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards” and who titles songs “F— U Blind” and “F— Off” doesn’t belong there, even if he is a rare celebrity Bush supporter.
In response to a flood of calls, the inauguration committee has apparently backpedaled, according to WND.
Good. Glad to see that some conservatives aren’t embarrassed about upholding decency.”
Personally, I’m a big fan of Kid Rock & I like his music.
I also understand that he is profane and raunchy, but I would also add that he’s a guy who supports Bush, performed for the soldiers in Iraq, and even chided other performers for not performing in Iraq…
“You see this thing now where like Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi – like I love all these guys as musicians – they’re gonna raise money for John Kerry. God bless ’em… But, before you go and do that, why don’t these motherf**kers go over there and play for our soldiers in Iraq? I’m not vocal about my views on the war. I’m just vocal about my views on the troops…”
“I do not believe that artists or actors and people should be out there like voicing their full-blown opinions on politics because, let’s face it, at the end of the day, I’m not that smart of a guy. I play rock ‘n’ roll, that’s what I do. Who would you trust to make your decisions, Donald Rumsfeld or the Dixie Chicks?”
I do understand that Kid Rock offends some people and I’m not criticizing anybody who doesn’t like him. People are entitled to their opinion.
But, I would say that’s he’s not being nominated for Attorney General here, they’d just like to have him play a little music =D…and as far as I’m concerned, anybody who supports W and sticks up for the troops like that is OK to play the inauguration in my book.
