Kelly Clarkson Has Found Out The Hard Way That It is Only Acceptable To Be A Pop Star And Support The Democrats
American Idol winner and now mega pop star has found out the hard way that it is only acceptable to endorse a US presidential candidate if he is a democrat.
At the previous US election celebrities were all over democrat candidate Barack Obama, however Kelly Clarkson has been villified by fans for coming out in support for Republican candidate Ron Perry. Clearly it is not as cool and probably for good reason. Republican candidates are traditionally pretty conservative and uncool.
The Daily Telegraph reports that fans are not happy with some racist and homophobic remarks Perry made some years ago. I would of thought all Republican candidates had views like that….
Kelly Clarkson has been backpedalling and saying she believed in equal rights, but liked that Ron Perry because he believed in “less Government” – is that code for lower taxes, no universal health care, decrease in welfare support and less gun control???
Anyway on the plus side for her her album sales increased the day after the endorsement.
