Freepers on hate-radio show in uproar: Huey Lewis endorsed John Kerry
Edited on Wed Jun-30-04 04:50 PM by wyldwolf
Yeah... THAT Huey Lewis:

Folks-

I have never before endorsed a Presidential candidate publicly, nor do I think it's a generally good idea for celebrities to do so, but I'm endorsing John Kerry for President. I think the war in Iraq was ill conceived, has been proven to be a big mistake, and it's time for a new team to try to internationalize the fight against terrorism, and restore respect for the United States. It's so sad to remember that after 9/11 the whole world empathized with us. I don't believe Bush or Cheney or Rumsfeld are malicious, but I believe they got it wrong in Iraq, and it's time for a change.

2. I like Huey Lews...
Call me a dork. But I don't understand why get all worked up over a singer that isn't popular any more?

25. I do. It's at least one more vote. And maybe a few hundred fans.

12. Too late! Hootie AND the Blowfish were/are John Edwards backers...
So, they're also lost to the tentacles of the Democratic beastie.

What a world! :toast:

18. My Respect For Huey Lewis
Edited on Wed Jun-30-04 07:02 PM by impeachdubya
Went up several notches when he was scheduled to play some benefit in the late 80s or early 90s with the Grateful Dead, and he said something to the effect of "A Hell of a lot more people want to hear you guys than do me- take my time"...

But, seriously, more respect for the guy. Good for him. I don't know about you guys, but Everyone's welcome on my ship of sinkin' George W. Bush.

8. So that's the "News"
Edited on Wed Jun-30-04 04:58 PM by istherehope
Michael(?) Ramone told all the fans of The Ramones to vote Bush out on Stern's Radio Show. If every band tells every fan to vote Bush out it has to help. Every vote counts cause not every vote is counted.

26. That would probably be Marky Ramone
It can't be Johnny - he's a Busheep Republican unfortunately. And of course, Joey and Dee Dee are no longer eligible to vote - except in certain Florida precincts, probably :eyes:

9. It's over, George!
You got the Dixie Chicks, the Pope and Huey Lewis against you. Time to read the writing on the wall or the lines on the mirror, buddy.

27. Forgiveness is the Pope's job (at least according to Catholic doctrine)
...but that doesn't mean JP let Junior off the war for Iraq, and I believe he went off on the Chimp when half-assed monkey boy visted the Vatican.

24. Why would Freepazoids care what Huey Lewis said?
Did they think he was one of them or something?

Nah if Huey was a Repuke he would have done songs like "Sponging Off Daddy For A Living" "I Want A New Pharmaceutical Company" and "It's Hip To Be a Traitorous Neocon Fascist"
