John McCain

Meat Loaf Was a

Bad Choice

EXCLUSIVE

Republican Senator John McCain likes "America the Beautiful" just the way it is -- with no weird sounds or yelling or crazy ad-libbing -- which is why he thinks Meat Loaf was a BAD CHOICE for Mitt Romney's campaign event yesterday.

McCain was out in D.C. today when we asked about Meat Loaf's atrocious rendition of "America the Beautiful" -- and whether it was appropriate to take artistic license ... and change the song like he did.

McCain replied, "Change the song? Or have someone who knows the words?"

OUCH.

And Johnny Boy knows a little sumpin-sumpin
about making bad choices. The porn star from
Who's Nailin' Palin would've been a better pick
of a running mate.

Regardless of the botching of the song, I still like Meatloaf, and will still vote for Meatloaf for President this November.

Meatloaf--and Trump- are liabilities to Romney's campaign. Both have become pathetic.

If you're voting for a candidate exclusively because of the celebrities who endorse them, you're voting for the wrong reason.
