She hailed our country with her rendition of the national anthem and performed her hits "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" and "Except For Monday." Her closing performance of "Trilogy" moved the audience to tears and a standing ovation... Read more


Well now this has certainly taken an interesting turn. As I told you a couple of days ago, comedienne Roseanne Barr has decided to try her hand at politics and is currently seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States. Girl was serious enough to have landed a spot on California's ballot for the state primary in June. Well after successfully getting started in her new political career, Roseanne decided that the perfect running mate would be none other than Willie Nelson. After tweeting Willie several times asking him to be her vice presidential candidate, Willie finally... Read more


Photos courtesy of Willie Nelson and Roseanne Barr's Twitter accounts Well now this is entertaining. Did you hear that Roseanne Barr (yes, that Roseanne) has thrown her hat into the presidential race? Well she has. Back in February, the comedienne announced via her Twitter account that she was running for president and would be seeking the Green Party nomination. And she wasn't kidding, promptly filing the proper paperwork to make everything legit and even made it onto California's ballot for the state primary in June. Well, like any good presidential candidate (and tweeter), Roseanne decided to pick a running mate... Read more


Michele Bachmann hires Randy Travis

The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,Video Archive I have a confession to make....I don't follow politics. I know, I know, how utterly un-American. I should be ashamed and trust me, I am. But what I do follow is late night comics and Gawker.com, so I have to say that while my knowledge of presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is limited, I do find the things she does both scary and hilarious. I also have to say, though, no matter how scary and hilarious I may rightly or wrongly find Congresswoman Bachmann, I can't fault... Read more


Teapot Party picture via www.teapotparty.org Back a few months ago Willie Nelson was arrested for pot possession. Then he got off with a slap on the wrist for his pot possession. Then Willie got all political and started the Teapot Party in the hopes of getting America's leaders to come over to his way of thinking and legalize pot. Because, darn it, Willie's getting tired of being arrested for his recreational habits. Okay, I made that last part up. Anyway, today it's been widely reported that Willie and his Teapot party had picked their first candidate to endorse for president... Read more


Remember way back when when Obama was still just the wannabe president and the every-working-man Joe The Plumber made the scene and suddenly everyone was talking about this man who supposedly represented the hard-working, blue-collar, tax-paying man? Then about a week before the election news hit that Joe was looking into releasing a country CD. Then he just sort of disappeared. Well Joe the Plumber is back. Please, hold your applause. Joe is actually back in sort of a big way....at least for a day. The every-day-working-man-representative will be hitting the the stage in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 26th... Read more


Oh those country singers just can't stay away from the political scene. From Tim McGraw mulling over a run for Tennessee governor to Gretchen Wilson and John Rich performing for the Glenn Beck Taking Our Country Back Tour, country stars love getting involved in the political process. This go around, though, things are a little different because it's not someone just considering a run and it's not someone performing for someone else's political rally, it's a country singer with an actual political platform and honest to goodness political aspirations. Roughstock is reporting that Sammy Kershaw is running for Lt. Governor... Read more


John Rich has been a strong supporter of Sarah Palin for years now. He's done appearances, concerts, hosted shindigs, etc. for Sarah and her running mate John McCain and various other Republican politicians along the way. Sarah Palin has a new Fox News show debuting on Thursday called "Real American Stories." One of Sarah's first guests is.......Toby Keith. Thanks John for all your support, now let's see if Toby's free. Oh, I'm sure there's no animosity, I just like to find the drama in every situation, it makes things a bit more interesting around here. And speaking of John and... Read more


I'm sure there's a joke in here somewhere, you betcha. John Rich and Gretchen Wilson are set to perform on March 13 at the Tulsa Convention Center as part of Glenn Beck's Taking Our Country Back tour, which John Rich helped to plan. Also attending the rally will be ex Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Tickets for the rally and concert cost from $45 to $100. John Rich will also attend a second rally (though probably minus Sarah and Gretchen) in April in Kansas City and if the two "tour" stops are successful then up to 10 more events are being... Read more
