“Republican Party Has Taken Them for a Ride”

From Holden:

Wingers are pissed about Kid Rock’s prominent role in the coronation.

Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign For Children And Families, expressed outrage that the often raunchy Rock was asked to take part in the inauguration: “I just read Kid Rock’s sexually explicit lyrics and feel ashamed and dirty for even looking at his songs. If this sex-crazed animal, whose favorite word is the F-word, is allowed to sing at Bush’s inauguration this will send a clear message to pro-family Americans that the Republican Party has taken them for a ride and ditched them in the gutter.”

Thomasson added, “Bush’s FCC (news – web sites) can take the F-word off TV and fine radio and television networks that cuss on the air and show indecency, and then have the most indecent, sexually explicit, anti-family white singer on the planet representing the second term of George W. Bush.” Thomasson also said that having Kid Rock perform was “inconsistent” with the “moral values” message that was supposedly one of the reasons people voted for Bush’s re-election.

He concluded, “This guy is one of the worst role models for youth imaginable,” saying his presence at the inaugural was unacceptable even if he played less offensive songs.
