Springsteen, Bon Jovi tone deaf in politics

"Springsteen plans to play a song or two at campaign rallies Thursday in Madison, Wis., and Columbus, Ohio, both in battleground states likely to determine the winner of the election. He'll join Kerry in Cleveland the night before Election Day."

These guys may be okay musicians but they are certainly tone-deaf when it comes to politics.

The big question is why does anyone care what musicians have to say about politics? Maybe it harkens back to the '60s? I don't really know although a lot of that folk music seems to have a message. And Bruce Springsteen did sing Born in the USA. Can't figure why it got so much air play after 9/11 because if you listen to the lyrics it is not saying positive things about the US at all. And against our military action in particular.

I guess some people just don't feel smart enough to form their own opinions and so rely on someone else. But why you'd rely on a rock star is really beyond me. I think people who can't make up their own minds about who to vote for should not be allowed to vote.
