REM and Springsteen Flex Their Political Muscle

REM, Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, John Mellencamp, and the Dave Matthews band will all perform on the Vote For Change tour, presented by MoveOn.org. Their mission: to sway all of the Republicans and swing voters in attendance, and get them to vote for John Kerry. That would be all 3 or 4 of the Republicans in attendance, and no swing voters, which we all know are imaginary. Read the news story here. And see the Republicans call the artists pansy gay-wads here.

The Republicans are countering with their own concert tour, featuring Toby Keith. The opening act will be...Toby Keith. Republicans apparently love Toby Keith like Germans love David Hasselhoff, and Toby Keith loves G.W. Bush like Michael Stipe loves Thom Yorke.

Are there any Pro-Bush non-country music artists out there? [silence]

Okay, there's Britney. I really can't say anything negative about her. You know, just in case she's reading this. Who am I kidding? Britney doesn't read.

I was pro bush but if Brittnay is on his side, I may switch up. Then again Dixie chicks are on the other side, I am sure their patriotism will sway alot of votes. NOT!
