Obama Re-Election Makes Waves in Musicland
It may have escaped your attention, but a certain Barack Hussein Obama has been re-elected as President of the United States of America. Predictably, the victory has caused controversy throughout the music industry.
Hard country rocker and proud and vocal Republican, Ted Nugent, led the charge against the Commander in Chief with a heartfelt splurge of socio-political commentary:
“Dear God in heaven America vote Mitt Romney Paul Ryan Republican and save America
Vote for Obama & vote for US Constitution hating SCOTUS [Supreme Court of the United States] crazies
So Obama still demands the hardest workers provide for the nonwotkers [sic.]. Shared opportunities my ass
What subhuman varmint believes others must pay for their obesity booze cellphones birth control abortions & lives
Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools
So 4 SCOTUS idiots dont believe in self defense. Pure evil
I cry tears of blood for The Last Best Place & the warriors who died for this tragedy”
Elsewhere, veteran singer-songwriter Bob Dylan took to Facebook for the first time to voice his support for the President:
“Here’s pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow. Also, that we’re not fooled by the media and we think it’s going to be a landslide. That’s pretty much all of it.”
Fair play lads. Do you fancy being the subject of an interview on Geeks Unleashed?
