Toby Keith, Democrat

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

This is just hysterical. The man who penned the words “We’ll put a boot in your ass – it’s the American way,” it turns out, is a Democrat. Starting the countdown until country music stations go apeshit again.

Asked while promoting his new movie “Beer For My Horses” about the role of patriotism in the current presidential election, Keith replied: “There’s a big part of America that really believes that there is a war on terrorism, and that we need to finish up.

“So I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things.

“So as far as leadership and patriotism goes, I think it’s really important that those things have to take place. And I think he’s the best Democratic candidate we’ve had since Bill Clinton. And that’s coming from a Democrat.”

    Blumenthal ripped into Keith for the Beer for My Horses song because in the song there’s a reference to lynching folks criminals in Texas. There’s no denying the words are there, and it’s hard to escape the historical context of lynching blacks when Keith attributes such calls to granddaddy and ‘in his day.’ But despite the historical pain, Blumenthal is being overly sensitive and can’t let the song stand as it is, an expression of art.
