Toby Keith Comes Out as a Democrat
Posted on Aug 19, 2008
Is this the same Toby Keith who unleashed the cheese-slathered anthem, “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” (complete with fluffy golden retriever puppies and rippling flags in the video version), on the general public in 2002? Mr. “We’ll-Put-A-Boot-Up-Your-Ass”? It’s hard to figure whether the country star’s quasi-endorsement of Barack Obama is a boon or a bust for either candidate, but Keith sure seems fired up about the presumptive Democratic candidate.
AP via Yahoo News:
Asked while promoting his new movie “Beer For My Horses” about the role of patriotism in the current presidential election, Keith replied: “There’s a big part of America that really believes that there is a war on terrorism, and that we need to finish up.
“So I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things.”
Shock’n Y’All: Toby Keith says he’s a Democrat and likes what Barack Obama has to say.
