Kelly Clarkson Endorses Ron Paul: The Five Most Baffling Political Pairings
When it comes to presidential endorsements, musicians tend to be pretty predictable. Most all of them seem to go for Democrats, except for Ted Nugent. And then, inevitably, the Republican candidates go ahead and use the left-leaning rockers' music anyway, at which time said rockers throw kanipchen fits.
This really happened. See #1 for details.
But sometimes artists' endorsements are totally baffling. Witness Wednesday's news that Kelly Clarkson was throwing her support behind Ron Paul. Here, then, are our top five most beguiling politician/musician pairings. We also threw in an actor, because we couldn't resist.
5. Kelly Clarkson/Ron Paul, 2012
Sure, they both come from Texas, but WTF? "I love Ron Paul," Clarkson tweeted Wednesday. "I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote. Too bad he probably won't." Sure, it's not exactly a ringing endorsement. But still, it's Ron freaking Paul, the guy who only libertarian tech support guys and dubstep DJs seem to go for.
