The relationship between Republicans and musicians usually goes somewhere along the lines of, “Stop using our song in your campaign.” Democrats are much more chummy with the artistic community, which explains how they were able to score Sheryl Crow to sing the national anthem before their first presidential debate.
Even better,Hillary Clinton superfan Katy Perry is going to perform at a rally for the former secretary of state this weekend in Iowa. What a coincidence husband Bill Clinton, who has laid low for most of the campaign, will be on hand as well.
Perry certainly does love her Democrats, to the point where she volunteered this summer to write Clinton a campaign theme song should the need arise and in 2012 literally performed dressed like a ballot filled out for Barack Obama (and Joe Biden which could prove awkward). We suspect Biden thought he and Perry had something, but now she’s backing a girl and she likes it. Sorry Joe.
TheKaty Perry performance is old news, though. The breaking news today? The musical entertainment at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner will be provided by candidate Martin O’Malley, who used today’s appearance on “The View” to show Perry how it’s done.
It’s true, and there’s video to prove it. If only O’Malley would put asidepartisanship, he could team up with Mike Huckabee on bass and make America great again.
And maybe a few million more supporters.
