Rage Against the Machine Bassist

Paul Ryan's a Dumbass

For Liking Our Music

Republican VP hopeful Paul Ryan should've thought twice before saying he's a fan of Rage Against the Machine -- because the band's bassist tells TMZ, it makes Paul look like a complete idiot.

Tim Commerford was out in Malibu this week when we asked about Paul's love for the notoriously left-wing group -- and Tim responded, "Clearly [Paul's] not smart to be admitting that."

He adds, "It seems like it's stupid for him to even bring it up, so he's obviously not that smart of a guy."

Tom Morello -- Rage's guitarist -- has already ripped Paul over his fandom, saying, Paul "is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades."

You'll recall, last time we spoke to Commerford he hinted at a new Rage album in the works. This time we asked if the new album was for real, and Commerford replied, "DEFINITELY ... maybe ... Anything is possible."

Thanks for clearing that up.

Maybe his endorsement will sell more CDs so you can make some money to get that ganked up grill of yours fixed. Off to the dentist you go...

Hey Mr. I need to see a dentist. People like who they like for whatever reasons. I don't like Chris brown for what he did to Rihanna, but I do like some of his songs. I don't like Rihanna, but some of her songs are catchy. I like Bruce Willis, but some of his movies are horrible. And by the way, I like your music, I was even there when you were taping your music video on the steps on wall street about 10 years ago. I am a republican.

Why do all the Rage guys sound like such tools? As if you get a say in who listens to your music. I guarantee 99% of RATM fans have ZERO to do with their anti-society messages, they just like the music or like to pretend they're tough.
