Rage Against The Machine Voices Support For Sarah Palin, Announces New Album Details

Politically motivated rockers Rage Against The Machine has announced that they are backing former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin for the presidency in 2012, even though she has yet to confirm whether or not she will run for office. The band, who have previously caused controversy by voicing their support for the Zapitista Army of National Liberation and forcing the doors of the New York Stock Exchange to close, has also revealed that they will indeed be working on a new studio album, their first since 1999’s, "The Battle Of Los Angeles," and that it will be influenced by their new found support of Sarah Palin. Entitled, "Alaska Myself," the band will be fusing their familiar guitar style and socially charged lyrics to protest the current administration and enforce their new found political leanings. The tracklisting is as follows:

1. The President Is Bad
2. Tax And Spend (Anthem Of the Liberals)
3. Juneau
4. I’d Rather Be An Elephant Than A Jackass
5. Going Rogue
6. Hunting Wolves
7. Don’t Believe The Hope
8. An American Life
9. Lamestream Media
10. Red Star For A Red State
11. Tea Party, Not House Party
12. Mr. Obama, Tear Down This Wall
13. Hey Clinton, Get Back To Work
14. Love It Or Leave It
Bonus track: Born In The U.S.A. (Bruce Springsteen cover)

Hats off to Oz, this is f***in' hilarious! The fact that RATM has yet to criticize Obama for the numerous Bush polivcies he has continued exposes them for the hypocrites they are.

My favorite is: Tax and Spend (Anthem of the Liberals)

Post 14 calls something denies he's gullible, then calls Obama a Muslim. Delicious irony.

I'm sure she's a nice women and great mother and all but I'm amazed anyone would consider presidential. Her interview when she said she could practically see Russia from her house was hilarious but truly sad.
