The washed-up, marginally talented, penis-compensating rockers of the past punditry appears to be a new meme these days. Whenever a totally awful tragedy strikes (usually involving penis-compensating guns), you can rely on these clowns to exploit the horrible tragedy by blaming Obama. If you weren’t quite wowed by the incisive political analysis of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine or Mr. Wang Bang Pooty Tang, chances are slim that you’ll be lobbying for a Pulitzer for Hank Williams Jr.
The Redneck Millionaire and football jingle guru, who co-opted his actual talented father’s last name so as to easily hoodwink unsuspecting poor rednecks, made headlines earlier this year when he compared Obama to Hitler on Fox News. Now he’s back to let you know that he still hasn’t bothered to pretend to know anything about verifiable facts and contemporary political history.
Following a performance at the Iowa State Fair this past weekend, the walking Tea Party stereotype once again echoed the complete and utter balderdash used to make Wal-Mart denizens on Rascals spit up their Mountain Dew Code Red with rage. Indeed, convincing poor people to vote against their economic self-interests is alive and well.
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. — and we hate him,” Williams said. (Salon)
I thought he was a Muslin and thus some form of radical fabric?
Maybe a roadie could whisper in Willams’ ear that it was Obama who actually lead a dangerous assault that help kill Osama Bin Laden, has made sure that our veterans actually have jobs when they come back from combat and not just used as pawns to fight Republican commerce wars, and it was House Republicans (including Romney VP Paul Ryan) who blocked an emergency farm bill to the drought-stricken midwest. But who needs facts when you’ve got a kick-ass trucker hat. Somewhere the Dixie Chicks are laughing at all of this.
