Classless Republican Political Hacks Deny the Boss

Millions of real Americans have felt that sense of exhilaration as you drive a little too fast with the windows down and "Thunder Road" blasting. Millions of us have been touched by the economic dislocation and working-class pain of "My Hometown". Countless hundreds of thousands have yeared to go "Racing in the Streets".

Bruce is an icon - a working class hero who produces insightful music, loves his family and opens a window to what is gritty and good in the American psyche.

Astoundingly, Bill Frist has chosen to inject politics into appreciation of American culture. When the senators from New Jersey introduced a resolution to honor Bruce on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of one of the greatest rock and roll recordings ever made, "Born to Run", the Republican leadership killed the measure.

What unexplored level of idiocy is this? What kind of mouth-breathing halfwit could behave in such a manner? I can only imagine that being that sort of sharply-limited moral amputee must hurt - kind of like an unstoppable ice-cream heaadache.

This is the same Senate that honored Ted Nugent. This is the same Senate that honored Carrie Underwood, and Seigfried and Roy.

I am honestly disgusted by this display of political chicanery. Not because I think that Bruce really care's a rat's ass about another honor or about whether Bill Frist likes him. But because this shows the utterly debased, clueless, classless, and out-of-touch Republican leadership at its natural state.

The Republicans don't approve of Bruce. America does. America will win out, eventually.

Just dashing out the door, so no time to look it up, but didn't the Repugs in the Senate recently refuse to honour Willie Nelson, because they didn't like his politics (pro-working class, pro-small farmer, anti War on Drugs)?

Or maybe it was cuz Willie claimed to smoke a joint on the roof of the White House when Jimmy Carter was President.

To paraphrase a comment left by you over at my site: It's fun to see the left get all shook up about how persecuted they are.

And for what it is worth, I join with Ron Paul in objecting to all such resolutions.

RWR - Yes, you are clearly correct that this is a minor matter, and I'm making a bigger deal of it than it deserves. But I do get sick of every political tit having its tat - the fact that some politicians feel the need to play politics with every facet of life. It's not important because the left is getting perseuted, it's important because the politicians (right-wing politicians in this instance) are demonstrating what myopic bitches they are.
