The only embarassing thing is some people think it matters who a bunch of celebs support.

This could be the one instance where Green Party candidate Jill Stein stands a chance of coming out better than Twit Rob-me or B-roke Oh Bugger:

Jello Biafra

Others?

(Shame The Green Party wasn't an option on the Indiana absentee vote. I'm more in their camp than I am in the Dems apparently).

Musicians are entitled to their opinions just like any other American. The fact that they have media outlets broadcasting their choice for President more than just a vote- it's an endorsement.

I started this thread to point out the remarkable differences in musicians popularity between the two. Obama has far more popular artists supporting his campaign. Any thoughts on why?

Posted on Oct 26, 2012 6:33:15 AM PDT
Certainly, most musicians have very limited intellectual capabilities. They are more in touch with their feelings. Hence, they support the person whom they 'feel' is the better person, rather than the person who will, intellectually do the best job for the country. it's not rocket science.

I'm switching my vote to Mitt...David Foster is never wrong ;)

Those lists are important on one level and that would just how the two candidates could use the musicians for cash and votes.
Honey Boo Boo, plays a toy piano and eats dirt and she is endorsing Obama....This kinda stuff sells a lot of pimple cream!

If "Elvis Fan" endorses Obama he will lose votes.
It could tip Ohio!

Yes, but PHILIP S WOLF, Honey Boo Boo can't vote . . . and none of her family members will fit in the booth, or be able to read the candidates' names/flick the switches with their fingers even if, Crisco willing, they COULD get in the booth.

@ Timothy Schubert, who wrote:

I do not have an answer to MarcTheKing's question as to why one candidate has far more popular artists supporting his campaign, but I completely and respectfully disagree with your statement. I think it's very unfair to imply that most musicians aren't very bright, and I certainly don't know why their intellect would necessarily come into play when choosing one candidate over the other.

They won't let 7 year olds vote?
Voter Supression once more!!!

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 26, 2012 7:45:25 AM PDT
S. Stalcup says:
Nope. Seven year olds can't vote, but those with a mental age of seven can apparently. That's the only explanation I can think of for Daniels being elected governor twice in my home state as well as why Richard Mourdock was not taken to Monument Circle and flogged in public for his comments on rape and pregnancy.

My wife used to work at a local womens center and dealt with rape cases up close. People like Mourdock ( I don't know of Daniels) that think god wants rape to happen need a quick lobotomy as they may be mis-quoting the allmighty....and I had better stop before ELVIS FAN shows up here!

Seven year olds can vote--so long as they're illegal and lack a picture ID!

Meatloaf played at a Romney rally the same day Ann was on a cooking show making...what else...MEATLOAF!

Posted on Oct 26, 2012 9:20:21 AM PDT
I'm sure Vanilla Ice, Gene Simmons, and Meat Loaf know they're helping Obama by even opening their mouths. Why not bribe the one guy left from Milli Vanilli, New Kids on the Block, and Flock of Seagulls to endorse Romney? I'm sure they need the money.

While it's certainly unfair to blanket all musicians as lacking intellect, it's probably a reasonable generalization to say most of them are more "feelers" than "thinkers." This is no different from Hollywood, where the majority of actors--and IMO the better actors (with some exceptions) have for years been very vocal about their liberal leanings. While I appreciate the art that artists of all types have expressed as a result of their feelings, I don't generally give much creedence to most of what they say outside their art.

Mr. Critic--you forgot about Ted Nugent!

EvenSteven--thanks for expressing your political opinion, but I saw nothing in your post that addressed the topic of artists supporting candidates--or are you a famous artist I just haven't heard of yet?

Of course celebs have the right, and a few of my favs are on Obama's list. There are also more on his list I strongly dislike. Popularity doesn't make their music or political choice better. It's really not surprising O's list is long. Hollywood and the entertainment business is made up mostly of liberals.

"I don't know of Daniels"
I wish the people of Indiana NEVER had known of him, PHILIP. If ever a person fit the turtle and the scorpion parable, it's that midget. Not sure whether he got his nickname "The Blade" from those coke charges the Dems didn't pursue or what he did to the budget. He outsourced every flipping thing in the state. Leased the toll roads to the Aussies for 70 years. Stripped the teachers of collective bargaining/seniority. Gave state funds to charter schools. Just complete scum, really.

Rose to power riding around in this Winnebago on this "My Man Mitch" slogan. Swept his Lebanese background under the rug lest it not go over so hot with the anti-Arab good ol' boys at the coffee shops where he stumped.
I'm REALLY hoping for riots on the Purdue campus when he assumes the office of university president at the end of his term. He's destined to be succeeded by Mike (get ready to earn not much beyond a) Pence as the Dems are running ex-Senator/Pringles logo lookalike John Gregg in opposition and his ads are too Mayberry for words.

"Now you know. And knowing is half the battle."
