John McCain

Meat Loaf Was a

Bad Choice

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.

i think any celebrity endorsement is good. meatloaf has a huge fanbase, yes he killed the song but people are talking. even though i'm not for romney, meatloaf's singing bears no wt on his candidcy tmz is putting more to the story than there is.

Once again, your heading was wrong!!!! He never said Meatloaf was a "Bad Choice." But of course, he's a Republican so you can't quote what he actually said. You have to put a liberal bias on the story. Sad, Harvey.

Why a bad choice?? He's just as pathetic as all you Romney supporters, so he fits in perfectly!! Nothing like having a D list celebrity for your party since all the A list celebs are backing Obama!!! Meatloaf is just as delusional about his career as all you Repubs are about Romney winning!!! #Losers

LOL that was a great answer, Senator McCain. Great. And I do love meatloaf. However, I like music sung as written. I hate all this artistic ad libbing and warbling. It's just ego-massaging noise.

McCain is correct. Meatloaf is a rude, vular, pompous grade A, card carrying A-Hole.

Well, Obama was a bad choice too. At least we haven't had to listen to Meatloaf making an @ss out of himself for the last 4 years on a daily basis.....
