I Love Mitt

But Can't Vote for Him

Meat Loaf
can sing Mitt Romney's praises all he wants, but he can't vote for him.

The singer -- who moved to Austin earlier this year -- never registered in Texas, according to The Smoking Gun.  And the deadline to sign up, October 9, is over and out.

So Meat Loaf -- who stood side-by-side with Romney Thursday (above) and either butchered or honored "America the Beautiful" depending on your ear -- recently requested an absentee ballot from California, the state he abandoned last year.

According to the CA DMV you must be a resident to vote in CA. We don't know if Mr. Loaf got a ballot, but if he did he shouldn't use it.

MEAT LOAF ENDORSEMENT OF ROMNEY: Michael Lee Aday (AKA, "Meat Loaf") made one good album with the highlight of his film career coming in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Truth is that he has been a truly mediocre garbage artist ever since. You can always tell when a Presidential candidate has absolutely no soul or meaningful connection with the creative under current and spirit of a nation. He trots out has beens, pseudo celebs and drunken old white man as a sign of his creativity and spirit being in alignment with the soul of the nation. Trotting out Meat Loaf in 1978 might have been a brilliant move but in 2012 it just seems bizarre. Meat Loaf is hardly an artist that resonates as a social commentator of the times. It is not like Romney could trot out Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Billy Joel or even Bon Jovi, at least Jon Bon Jovi would know that we are "half way there". I can only wonder: What is next for Mitt Romney? Will Peter Lemongello come out and endorse his pasty white tuchis also? The bottom line is that this is the final year where the 'Angry White Man' has the power to dictate the outcome of an election, and the irony is that it comes in what many have called the "year of the woman."

They all should have been arrested for that song flub. That was the worst. Roseanne Barr you have to give up your title as the worst now. Those country guys didn't help at all. That actually hurt my ears. I never want to hear that noise again as long as I live and after.
