If Gaga does this, the left will do to her what the right did to the Dixie Chicks
 
2013-04-02 09:51:10 AM
Sorry Grandpa, 1 million dollars is like a shiny quarter nowadays.  1 million dollars will not cover the decrease in her fanbase for switching.

Not if she pulls a Colbert.

Hey Subs, you could have linked to the source, you know.

Actually GOP, I'm not sure about everyone else, but I'm going to like you even less.
 
2013-04-02 10:23:24 AM
I'd have liked to have seen the faces of the elder GOP statesmen when she walked out on stage.

Yes, if lady Gaga goes back in time, the left will burn her records while holding signs that say "THE PRESENT: LOVE IT OR LEEVE IT."

"Lady Gaga reportedly turned down $1 million offer to perform at RNC"

lol. those sad, pathetic fools.

TFA says she told them where they could stick their million dollars. Lady Gaga is an activist for gay rights. What did they honestly expect was going to happen?

Nono, you don't get it - the RNC was going to tell her that $150k was going "to a womens' shelter", so she can't say no! You know how those libs' hearts bleed all the time, right? HAW HAW.

I'm not a Gaga fan or anything, but it would be awesome if she'd agree to do it.  Then instead of that meat suit from a few years back, she could come out in a robe of dicks.  That would make my week/month/possibly year.
 
2013-04-02 10:38:15 AM
Just let this thought settle into your brain: Lady Gaga has too much self-respect to play at your party.
 
2013-04-02 10:38:46 AM
She should have showed up in a suit made out of dildos with a dance troupe of leather daddies.
 
2013-04-02 10:40:04 AM

Fart_Machine: April Fool!


The Washington Examiner link is dated 3/31, so probably not. Also, even though Gaga's popularity has declined a little bit this year, I'm pretty sure she wouldn't get out of bed for a million dollars-- especially for them.

Money talks.

Oddly, for such a "fiscal conservative" mindset, they love to throw money at a problem.

They honestly expect everyone else on the planet to have no scruples and an easily-negotiated pricetag - just like they, themselves do.

They'll probably offer her more money, convinced that she'll eventually accept.  The very concept of anyone valuing principles  - or ANYTHING - over cash is literally inconceivable to Republicans.

You know what, maybe Gaga should do this.

If Gaga was to play for the RNC, the guy above would be her only remaining fan.
The GOP have dug their own grave by appealing to old white guys.  Now that those people are their ONLY backers, no one else will touch them.  I say the GOP will be dead as a party by 2016.
 
2013-04-02 10:43:14 AM
The Right doesn't think about anything before they do it, do they? If she did agree to perform everybody with a half of brain knows that she would use the performance to call them all out on their policies.

Or maybe that was their plan all along. Hire somebody that they knew would use the performance to criticize them, and then point to that as proof that they are being oppressed by the evil Liberals.

No, me calling him a twit is being rude, acerbic, and dickish. Me waiting until later and slashing his tires would be vindictive. Words mean things.

They couldn't even get Pitbull to play. Bwahahahaaaaa.

I wonder if the Nuge is available?
 
2013-04-02 10:45:45 AM
Ted Nugent is available; and they could probably pay him in animal skins.

The fact that she's not doing this and donating the money to Planned Parenthood feels like a wasted opportunity.

There will always be old people. You may not believe it, but when you get old you'll get bitter and resentful too, and want to punish all the youngsters for being different from you.

Social issues aside, Lady Gaga is too talented to be a Republican musician. And I say that as someone who isn't particularly fond of her work.
 
2013-04-02 10:47:01 AM
I love being linked to a link to a link.  Thanks for the scoop, Washington Examiner via Salon via Some Radio Station via FARK!  I also liked the part where, by the time it got to the linked version, the article was basically pared down to a twitter update.

I think the idea was to show that they are cool and hip and in tune with the young people.

Are you kidding?  We'd tune in to see Born This Way or Judas at the RNC.  The crowd shots would be a live version of the Springtime for Hitler scene in The Producers.

Yes, you know that the "left' is the main demographic of her pop music, just how the right is the main demographic of Country.

Well does the word "treason" mean anything, because you just committed it by being mean! Same as the Dixie Chicks! Socialist!

If they had offered $10 million? She should probably take the $10 million, and donate it all to planned parenthood or something.

She could do the concert, then very publicly donate 1 million to the Transgendered Black Hippie Movement of America.

....I hate to tell you this, Mr. Van Winkle, bu the election is over. The next RNC is over three years away.

The RNC ended up booking Journey and Lynyrd Skynyrd, but the latter never took the stage due to the hurricane. This is coming out now because the GOP and the bands are suing each other over it: they both used the same booker, the GOP is suing the booker because Lynyrd Skynyrd's concert didn't happen and they want their money ($350K) back, the booker is countersuing and saying 'hell, Journey DID perform and you never paid them (their bill was $500K)'.

Given her popularity with the golf ball dimpled I can see how she might play well to the country club crowd.

The GOP, just like the Democratic Party, will not die, no matter how much one side or the other wants it to do so.  The political parties will realign, like they are now, to better reflect how the nation feels about the issues.

If there is one thing a political party is good at doing, it is changing with the times to stay in power.  Sure the old diehards will be pissed, but they are old and will die soon enough.  Or they'll be run out of power by those with new backing.

Even Dolly Parton said no.  Owch.

I never cease to be amazed at the GOP's total lack of self-awareness.  How the fark could they possibly think that artistic people would be down with their nonsense?  It's the same thing with minority voters.  It's amazing really.

GOP: "You're a lazy welfare queen.  All you want is your free Obamaphone and a handout from the government paid for by real Americans.  You're the real racist.  You're a taker, not a maker."

Black Guy: *Votes Obama*

GOP: "Why didn't you vote for us?"
