"Evangelical" woman offended by strong lyrics in C&W song played at Mitt Romney event

Can we just expel the bitch from the Republican Party?

by Eric Dondero

This is about as absurd as it gets. A snooty religious conservative woman was offended by... wait for it... the phrase "hot damn" being used in a Toby Keith song played at a rally in Colorado for Mitt Romney.

Politico reports, "Mitt’s ‘hot’ mess"
Mitt Romney’s campaign soundtrack – heavy on the patriotic country rock – is as reliably white bread as the candidate’s stump speech.

But after he concluded his 15-minute stump speech in Grand Junction, he had a “big-time” supporter unhappy with a lone profanity in one of his songs.

“There were swear words in there,” said Mary Kronvall, 72, of Grand Junction. “It’s not appropriate for Mitt Romney’s campaign.”

The offending lyric: “Hot dog, hot damn, I love this American ride” from Toby Keith’s “American Ride,” a Romney musical staple.

Kronvall, who said she and her husband are “big-time Republican,” approached the campaign’s sound guy to register her complaints. She was met with shaken heads.

The song isn’t likely to dim Kronvall’s enthusiasm for Romney, but, she said, she’ll be staying home Tuesday night.

“I don’t go to the caucuses,” she said. “The moderate Republicans pretty much have it sewed up, and I’m not moderate. I’m very conservative, evangelical.”
Now, we know Coloradoans to be rugged cowboy types; not a bunch of ninnies.

Is there any process in the Colorado GOP by-laws, to actively expel an individual from the State Republican Party? Strip her of her title of "Republican," and forever ban her from participating in any GOP functions, or even voting Republican?

"Swear words" not appropriate for Romney's campaign? However, scorched earth negative ad campaigns are just fine for Mittens the Hun. Santorum next up for caricature assassination by the Establishment.

Santorum needs to explain how it is someone can lose a Senate race for reelection - badly! - and then decide to run for President.

My gosh, if you lose your local race for dog catcher, you don't decide two years later to run for mayor.

I have no idea why the media doesn't call him on that???

Yoh Rick, go back home to PA and win that Senate seat back for Team GOP before you start thinking of running for Prez.

I think that pretty much everybody who listens to hillbilly music should be banned from society.

**** "Santorum next up for caricature assassination by the Establishment." ****

Three of the four candidates are dues paying members of the Big Government Republican ESTABLISHMENT.

The nomination fight is among Establishment members for the nomination.

Eric Dondero said...

My dear Gary, if Romney was soooo establishment, he wouldn't be getting slammed by some religious right bitch for playing Toby Keith at his campaign rallies.

Since when do "estalishment Republicans," use outlaw music as campaign themes?

Establishment Republicans listen to elevator music, like, umm, well ya know... Ron Paul.

Eric Dondero said...

I remember back in one of our 1990s campaigns for Congress, Michael Q. Sullivan and I told Ron, hey, Willie Nelson (who lived in the district in Dripping Springs near Austin), just endorsed you.

Ron's response...

"Willie who?"

Gary said...

**** My dear Gary, if Romney was soooo establishment, he wouldn't be getting slammed by some religious right bitch ****

Earth to Eric. The religious right is not part of the Beltway Establishment Elite.

The Elite is secular and Socialist in its day-to-day political actions. They throw a few bones at the Religiously impaired to keep them on the plantation.

Political correctness is just not for your father's left anymore. Women like this Orwellian for Jesus reminds us that the only difference between the far right, and far left is by categories.

Gary said...

Will is right.

I found a great quote from Hitler where he went into detail how the Nazis were Socialists and were going to destroy capitalism.

The left and right are the same.

Chuck said...

Gee. One stupid fucking cliche after another in this thread.

Bullshit, Gary. Damn but you're funny some days.

Hitler was NEVER a man of the Right nor was his socialism ever a phenomenon of the Right or of "Capitalism."

He *miraculously* became a man of the Right only during WW2 when he opposed another man of the Left with whom he'd long been associated: Stalin. In the mid Thirties, American and European media trumpeted four Giants of the Progressive Left: Benito Mussolini, Komrade Stalin, F.D.R. and that nasty little pencil-mustachioed Herr Adolf guy. (Only one pol - Churchill - took Adolf seriously at his word in those days. Generalisimo Franco would have been a fifth, but Spain was having it's issues with Stalin.)

"Orwellian for Jesus"--Brilliant.

"Santorum needs to explain how it is someone can lose a Senate race for reelection - badly! - and then decide to run for President."

Santorum lost his last US Senate race 59-41.

Romney lost HIS last US Senate race 58-41.

Gary said...

**** He *miraculously* became a man of the Right only during WW2 when he opposed another man of the Left with whom he'd long been associated: Stalin. ****

Ran,

One Socialist dictator making war against another Socialist dictator makes neither one left or right.

When a Socialist dictator is pushing your lifeless corpse into a ditch it does not matter what "wing" of Socialism he claims to belongs to.

RE: KN@PPSTER

I love how you stop by and drop facts that fuck up Eric's little world view :-) Please continue!

JJ said...

I don't care for Santorum or Gingrich but if one of them complains about Romney, Eric and the sheep excoriate anyone who differs. My gosh how brown is that nose of yours being up Romney's ass? You have told the true Libertarians to STFU, you have told the Gingrich supporters to STFU, now it is the Evangelical Santorum supporters to STFU. Wow the Brown Nose of the year award definitely goes to you Eric.

Eric Dondero said...

Romney lost the Senate race in 1994. Two years later he went on to win the Governor's race. It wasn't the other way around. If it had been than you'd be right. He'd be an idiot to run for President after winning a big election like that.

And Pennsylvania is much more Republican-friendly than Massachusetts.

Eric Dondero said...

JJ, I'd support Santorum if he were the nominee. He's a nice guy. He's honest. I just think he's fucking up for the team. If he wants to be a good GOP team member he needs to run for an office he can win.

I would not support Gingrich or Paul. I'm Romney & Johnson all the way.

Eric Dondero said...

And no, you're not a real libertarian. You're a libertarian wannabee. I've been active with the Libertarian Party since 1985 Bub! Suck on that Newbie.

JJ said...

So far it looks like a Santorum sweep. Stick that to the MITT-BOTS!!

Eric Dondero said...

So, you're a Santorum supporter then?

KN@PPSTER said...

"If it had been than you'd be right."

Actually, I WAS right. I made a factual claim that was true in every respect.

I offered no opinion as to any other issue.

If you want that opinion, here it is: You're right. Santorum spent 16 years in the House and Senate, with all the advantages of incumbency, then lost his re-election race by almost the same margin that then-political-newcomer lost to Ted Fucking Kennedy in Massachusetts. That's pretty damn bad.

Newt Gingrich, on the other hand, hasn't lost a general election since 1976.

Chuck said...

"So, you're a Santorum supporter then?"

No. "jj" is a democrat shill on a mission. All one needs to do is read what the little fuckwad writes to know what side the sniveling rodent is on.

jgeleff said...

LunaRick is just another big government conservative who has put his political ambitions ahead of his family. Family values indeed.

JJ said...

Chuck you petty cum sucker all that goes through your mind is everyone has to be lockstep sheep Republican or they are shit. Well fuck yourself. You Lowlife! My ballsack has more logic than you.
