GOP Dissing the Boss?
An effort by New Jersey's two Democratic senators to honor rock legend Bruce Springsteen was shot down Friday by Republicans who are apparently still miffed a year after he lent his voice to the Kerry campaign.
The chamber's GOP leaders refused to bring up for consideration a resolution, introduced by Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Jon Corzine, that honored Springsteen's long career and the re-release of his 1975 anthem album, "Born to Run."
The GOP refused to comment on why they shot down this largely symbolic gesture.
I, however, will comment.
The GOP shows how petty they are when they demonstrate that they have no appreciation of American culture or the artistic contributions of those who do not share their narrow values.
As they decry political partisanship, they illustrate it on a daily basis. Their pettiness, their stubbornness and their blatant disregard for Americans who do not share their fascist viewpoints are toxic to America.
Just one more reason to disrespect the disrespectful GOP.
What jackasses they are.
