I'm honestly just shocked he hasn't become some sort of republican cult hero by now.

Is he playing the music for us? Or is he playing the music for an audience of one?


/that one being Jodie Foster
//seriously, who else would it be

Why? Because he shot a cop?

Next up: Sirhan Sirhan wonders why his steakhouse chain, Sirloin Sirloin, just isn't taking off with the public.

Seriously. Thinking we'll forget how bad his aim was.

He should have done a prison tour with Charlie Manson.

Him, and the prison mouse in his pocket.

Well, that isn't woke, that isn't very woke at all.

Reagan would be a woke liberal socialist by modern GOP standards.

Especially since he was an actor

All the guy wants is for someone to finally say "Wow, you killed it".

No, because he shot a cop. The modern Trump J6 GOP hates the police.

 in other news that guy is obviously total nutts'o and we just won't admit it.

But they're interested in their mental fanfiction, not the person.  Reagan was Chuck Norris mixed with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, with the mind of Solomon to modern conservatives.

Now, ask them about Jesus.

Is the music any good?

He was mentally ill and the doctors say it got better. I don't see any reason to hold on to a news cycle that old.

He'd been busted with a gun in Nashville, but they cleared a path for him like Sirhan.
Daddy was an oil-magnate in Colo, like his buddy VP-Bush.

i would imagine the main reason is because he's not very good.  He could easily play under a fake name if he thinks his notoriety is holding him back, however doubtful it would make any difference.   

The world is full of people who think they're special, and that the audience just hasn't caught on yet.

In reality, an artist who can't find an audience is at fault, not the audience.

I made that point because the Republican Party seems to have taken this approach that the more repugnant a thing is, the more they support it. The more vile and stupid and evil a person is, they support it BECAUSE of that.

It's wild. Every evangelical Christian would nominate Lucifer himself for office because the libs said he did bad things and cancel culture, etc

We'd all be in a much better place if only...
