So, the RNC has such entertainment as Gretchen Wilson, who has such hits as "Redneck Woman," in which she expresses her redneck pride.
According to Dictionary.com, a redneck is defined as such:
an uneducated white farm laborer.
A bigot or reactionary, esp. from the rural working class.
Would you want someone with a song that basically states "I'm an uneducated bigot and proud" to represent your convention?
The Beach Boys are also slated to perform, rumor has it John McCain is going to take out his dentures and join them for a sing-along. (bomb, bomb bomb...) barbaric!
Other performers include Cowboy Troy, John Rich, and Sammy Hagar, who still can't drive 55, but must not mind the high gas prices.
Look at the bright side Republicans, if country and western doesn't do it for you, there's bound to be great bands at all of the protests!
The DNC has a fairly long list as well including Willie Nelson, Black Eyed Peas, but most importantly Kayne West is on the bill which allowed the Democrats to come up with their newest convention slogan: "george bush doesn't care about us either."
So, since I'm on the topic of music, I'd like to mention that Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani recently had a son they named Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale...isn't it bad enough the kid will eventually have to hear a Bush album at some point in his life?
