But he was "Born in the USA". (and lives in a 26 room mansion in Malibu). He can connect with minimum wage workers. Someone tell Bruce the IRS accepts donations.

It's unfortunate that "Born In the USA" was being used as a patriotic rallying song after 9/11. It was really a Vietnam protest song if anyone had bothered to pay attention to the lyrics. Bruce has been a raving, left-wing lunatic for a while and it's too bad. I really like his music. I just have to close my eyes and ears when he's on his anti-Republican rant.

To the average bush supporter, anyone who dares to criticize and/or question the legitimacy of Oil Boy is a "raving, left-wing lunatic."

Bruce Springsteen, in a New York Times op-ed today:
Personally, for the last 25 years I have always stayed one step away from partisan politics. Instead, I have been partisan about a set of ideals: economic justice, civil rights, a humane foreign policy, freedom and a decent life for all of our citizens. This year, however, for many of us the stakes have risen too high to sit this election out.
Through my work, I've always tried to ask hard questions. Why is it that the wealthiest nation in the world finds it so hard to keep its promise and faith with its weakest citizens? Why do we continue to find it so difficult to see beyond the veil of race? How do we conduct ourselves during difficult times without killing the things we hold dear? Why does the fulfillment of our promise as a people always seem to be just within grasp yet forever out of reach?
I don't think John Kerry and John Edwards have all the answers. I do believe they are sincerely interested in asking the right questions and working their way toward honest solutions. They understand that we need an administration that places a priority on fairness, curiosity, openness, humility, concern for all America's citizens, courage and faith.
It is through the truthful exercising of the best of human qualities — respect for others, honesty about ourselves, faith in our ideals — that we come to life in God's eyes. It is how our soul, as a nation and as individuals, is revealed. Our American government has strayed too far from American values. It is time to move forward. The country we carry in our hearts is waiting.
So much for Crushaholic's attempt to paint Springsteen as a "raving, left-wing lunatic."
