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.

John? Sarah Palin was a bad choice too. I was going to vote for you. I'd rather hear Meatloaf sing for an hour and a half then hope for one more minute of the woman who lost the presidency for you.

I hate it when a President will do something like use a song to try to relate to the public it's so cheesy and such a put on. Like when Paul Ryan scrubbed dishes at a soup kitchen. They try so badly to come across as 'normal' folk and it always comes across as phony and weird. Just be yourself. But I guess these dudes wouldn't be politicians if they couldn't be phonies. That's what being a politician is all about, isn't it..?

Of course he thinks Meat Loaf was a bad choice....What is he, like 90?!? Someone probably had to explain to him that they weren't talking about a singing dinner entree.

It's because of this idiot we have Obama in the White House...John McCain is a joke, he is just another empty suit who thinks he walks on water.
