  •  He wishes he had the success of Springsteen, (9+ / 0-)

    Jon Bon Jovi and other liberal musicians who often campaign for Democrats and support the President.

    He will never ever be the musician or the success of Bruce Springsteen for instance or Lady GAGA or Katie Perry and the list goes on.

      of musicians supporting Kerry and those supporting Bush.

      My Kerry list had over 300 people cutting across genres from classical to jazz to hardcore punk. Everybody was turning out to try to turn Bush out of the White House. Dozens of local musicians here were playing fundraisers and voter registration concerts.

      My Bush list had about 30, and I had to push it and include fringe people like a girl surfer who recorded a demo hoping to be the next Britney Spears and a cop whose main musical experience was performing the Star Spangled Banner at ballgames. Virtually all were either country acts — few major ones — or contemporary "Christian" artists. (The gospel acts were on the other side.)

      Even Toby Keith was quick to say he wasn't a Republican.

      Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.

      he had the success of The Knack.

      He Never had a song that charted over 30, never had an album chart over 13.

      Religion is like a blind man, in a pitch black room, searching for a black cat that isn't there.....and finding it.
