    It's sad to think that no one would even think about voting for this guy if he were on American Idol. He's tone deaf to compassion and thoughtfulness as he is music.

    • Terry

      True, but he was awesome in Rocky Horror Picture Show. Meatloaf is getting old.

      • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

        Yeah, he used to be an awesome tenor.

      • http://www.boskolives.wordpress.com boskolives

        Once upon a time, the N.Y. Times referred to him as "Mr. Loaf".

    • jgalleg4

      Well, people would vote for him in a William Hung kinda way.

    • Thunderclees

      It's sad to think that a man who owes his career to musical theater is endorsing Mittens.

    "God sheds his grace on thee…" Rape babies?

    • DustyBowlBlues

      Hell, no. God only sheds grace on a fertilized egg to zygote to fetus. Once it's an actual baby? Bootstraps, kid. And as to your mother: tell that bitch that if she doesn't want another rape baby, she shouldn't wear slutty clothes.

      I never understood the overreaction on that one.

      • tessiee

        Especially since if one of the other party had yelled, it would have been seen as evidence that they were a kickass guy who stands up to terra, or some such shit.

        • Negropolis

          Especially since it was later found that the media exaggerated the sound-level of the scream.

    What exactly do these people think is the benefit of supporting romney?

    • mille derps

      Getting a white back in the White House?

      • eggsacklywright

        Perzackly. They're not voting for Mittz, they're voting to oust O.

          Literally, *anyone* (as their choice of Rmoney makes clear) before the "blah"…

          • Redgyal

            George Clinton/Hillary Clinton 2016!

    • shelwood46

      According to Meat Loaf, noted political expert, you must choose Mitt because he knows, unlike that dummy Obama, that the Cold War isn't over, dangnumbit. Not over! Also, Meat Loaf is still in Billboard Top Ten. And he's going to show up to vote on the wrong… year.

      • Dr_Zoidberg

        I lived through the Cold War. I knew the Cold War. This, sir, is no Cold War.

    • BoroPrimorac

      Because they can't stand the thought of a black dude having more power than they do.

      • Redgyal

        What if he isn't a black dude but instead is a cool cat, daddy-o?

        • Negropolis

          Yeah, as if "cool" impresses them. They put up Daddy Bush, Shrub, Bob Dole and John McCain, for goodness sake.

          • Redgyal

            Uh, that was supposed to be a joke about the use of the ever so trendy term "dude" to refer to a grown man. Sorry, snark fail.

          • Negropolis

            Oh knew it was snark. Just wanted to nail it on the wall.

          • Redgyal

            Understood. Today we are all over zealous carpenters!

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      They're very, very rich and I'd bet my life they cheat on their taxes to the fullest extent of their accountants' abilities. Meatloaf, Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Johnny Van Zandt probably also have accounts in the Cayman Islands.

  • SheriffRoscoe

    I can't look at Meatloaf anymore without thinking "bitch tits."

    • SexySmurf

      That's also what I think when I look at Mitt.

    • PennyDreadful

      His name was Robert Paulsen.

    • Crank_Tango

      Now more than ever.

      You'd think these old hasbeens would just be content to leave their careers be, and not get rid of half of their remaining fans by going full retard, but what do I know.

  • http://matthewgreenbaum.com swordfis

    Are you sure he was singing? It looks and sounds like a cerebral accident.

    The meat in Meat Loaf is obviously pork, since he was squealing like a castrated pig.

    • NellCote71

      I remember the very first time I saw Meatloaf on TV before I knew who he was. I just thought it was awfully nice of those TV people to give the, er, mentally challenged an opportunity.

    • Crank_Tango

      Paralyzed by the dashboard lights?

      I have been dying to work that into a pun somehow, because for the life of me I can't think of any other meatloaf hits…

      • bobbert

        Well, there is Bat out of Heck.

      • viennawoods13

        Two out of three ain't bad.

  • SoBeach

    Holy mother of God. Mittens looks like he's about to shove his fist down Meatloaf's throat and rip out his larynx. Too bad he didn't. It would have meant a ten point bump in the polls.

    • NellCote71

      Not that I would have voted for but I sure would respect him more.

  • coolhandnuke

    Well I can see a parasite by the dashboard lights.

  • UW8316154

    Who?

    • http://www.gurukalehuru.wordpress.com gurukalehuru

      Who? Who? Meatloaf, that's fucking who. O.K., he has fallen, he has gotten old, he sucks now, but nobody in the entire history of Rock and Roll and all other music combined has ever rocked harder than Meatloaf rocked in his prime.

      This is tragedy, not comedy.

      hoo boy i needed that.

      i am making calls to iowa and (even though i'm using my best sweet blond girl voice when praising bamz), farmer's keep hanging up on me.

      • mille derps

        You are so awesome!

        Those farmers must be a little tired of political calls, but if you 'get through' to even one or two voters, that may have a ripple effect.

    • Dr_Zoidberg

      Oh my god I just got pregnant!

  • Callyson

    Jesus Christ, I made the mistake of listening to that and now my dogs won't stop barking. I better get them a treat to make up for this crap…

    • BadKitty904

      Awww…

    • Loch_Nessosaur

      When a dog barks at meatloaf you know it's bad.

    • mille derps

      Was it the singing or all the dog whistles?

      • Callyson

        I don't know–they aren't talking to me right now, despite getting a treat. Can't say I blame them. Maybe if I get that video of Obama singing “Let's Stay Together” they'll forgive me, BBL…

    • valgal2342

      Somebody say treats???????

  • mbobier

    "I'm…. so not in love with you," Mittens.

  • coolhandnuke

    I thought Meatloaf was the intellectual property of Chris Christie.

    • BadKitty904

      Hmmm. Now, that you mention it, I've never seen the two of them in the same room, at the same time…

    • Negropolis

      Why, "Real" America, of course. Either that, or Amercia.

  • UW8316154

    • HarryButtle

      But the conservatards get all butt-hurt when Lena Dunham makes a cute little double entendre about voting for the first time, right?

      • JustPixelz

        Because Ms Dunham was alluding to a young woman making a choice about her sex life. Repubicans HATE HATE HATE that women have sex without prior government authorization.

    • NellCote71

      And Obamz has James Taylor in New Hampshire today.

      • CthuNHu

        He was great. Played about seven songs, all the ones you'd expect, "Fire and Rain," Gone to Carolina, You've Got a Friend, Shower the People, etc., etc. Wife with him, singing on most songs (and apparently kids, pre-teenish, non-singing). Then Bamz! Who thoroughly kicked ass before a crowd of 8500 far-more-diverse-than-you'd-expect-in-NH-from-all-the-Romney-crowd-pics people on a beautiful 70-ish sunny fall New Hampshire day, 48 hours before we get buried beneath 36 inches of rain and snow and last-minute SuperPAC hate and hope flyers.

  • soeoho

    Nice thing about meatloaf is it can be shaped into most any form. Even the shape of a turkey.

  • SoBeach

    After this it's safe to say Mitt has the falling down drunk has-been vote sewn up.

    • mille derps

      Luckily, they won't show up to vote until after Thanksgiving.

    • shelwood46

      I'm pretty sure the only time people hear Meatloaf songs these days are when drunk guys put it in the jukebox, usually by mistake.

    • Arkoday

      Nope, I ain't votin' fer'im.

  • sbj1964

  • coolhandnuke

    My nine-year-old son loves to play the Mitt Romney "Where's Waldo" game. Every time Mitt draws a crowd, my boy tries to find the one non-whitey in the crowd.
    This one has him stumped.

  • RomneysLogCabin

    What's the matter Mitt? Do the people you represent make you uncomfortable?

    • tessiee

      That's been obvious since Day One of his campaign, hasn't it?

      • RomneysLogCabin

        Mitt's coy contempt for ordinary white Americans is appalling–I'd hate to see what he would have in store for minorities as the President.

    • HarryButtle

      Ann Coulter, natch. (though she looks more like Riff Raff)

      • HarryButtle

        And hunky Paul Ryan is Rocky! Krauthammer gets to be Dr Scott by default, with Pegs Noonington and KJ Lopez as Magenta and Columbia.

        OK, even I can't stomach that last part.

        • DCBloom

          Who's Riff Raff?

          • HarryButtle

            Oh, yea. When I mentioned him with Coulter, I forgot to cast him. Doocy?

          • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

    • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

  • Schmannnity

    In light of his flip flops and the lack of accountability for them, Mitt should sing Nessun Dorma.

    • Negropolis

      I think his song is actually "Non, je ne regrette rien".

  • LibrarianX

    Is Meatloaf supposed to be having a seizure?

    • tessiee

      Yes; he is supposed to be having a seizure and collapsing, therefore rendering him unable to sing.

      • LibrarianX

        Well, that would be helpful, certainly.

      • LibrarianX

        I imagine that dogs everywhere hate him. Passionately.

  • OneYieldRegular

      Actually, Meat has undergone quite a bit of physical and emotional trauma, which is the only way I can explain this. Doesn't excuse the unrepentant Republican polishing he's doing, though.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/30500320@N06/ DerrickWildcat

    I think the most important thing that can be taken away from this endorsement is that Meatloaf is alive.

    Ok, this is what I was waiting for. I think I've made my decision.

  • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

    I guess Mitt figures if he surrounds himself with horrible people he will seem less horrible by comparison.

  • tessiee

    OK, the fellow in the blue jacket (no idea who he is) is more than a bit of a drama queen, but he does have a fairly decent voice, and can at least carry the tune, although he does sound a bit pinky-up-the-ass when he's straining for the high notes.
    But Meatloaf? That can only be deliberate self-parody, right?
    On the plus side, we do get to see Mitt looking cringingly uncomfortable (more so than usual).

    OT: Obama's ground game, at least here in Dayton, Ohio, is clearly ahead of Romney's. Not only do I actually see Obama people around and doing things, but they actually called me and asked if I wanted to volunteer. They said they'd call back and tell me things that need to be done. I'm just kind of confused on how they got my name, considering I'm not a registered Democrat and this is the first general election I've been old enough to vote in…

    I'm saying no if it has anything to do with me going to West Dayton though, that area just plain scares me considering it typically leads the news with "shooting in West Dayton". We shall see.

    I get a kick out of all these bullshit Republicans warbling the words to "America the Beautiful." Wonder if they know anything about the woman who wrote those words? Katharine Lee Bates was a prof at Wellesley College and most likely was a lesbian who was committed to one life-long relationship.

    Bates' originally had these lines as part of the third stanza:

    America! America!
    God shed his grace on thee
    Till selfish gain no longer stain
    The banner of the free!

    Marian Anderson, a blah woman, sang it on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial when the upstanding, patriotic racist women of the DAR refused to let her rent their Constitution Hall for a concert.

    Mitt outsourced his singing with as much success as he outsourced his foreign policy.

      No, because he is so out of touch w/ even his people (CRACKERS!!) he has no idea who is & isn't a real celeb these days.

      He probably has an Osmond Bros. reunion planned for next wknd.'s big GOTV rallies.

    • bibliotequetress

      Has anyone yet explained to Mitt that Trump, Clint and Meatloaf are celebrities? I don't know if that information is in his database.

    On the bright side, Romney in the White House a few years and America won't be beautiful anymore. So no more song for Meatloaf to ruin.

      Amber waves of parched corn. No need to change the color.

  • Native_of_SL_UT

    I am a big fan of Wonkette, but it's posts like this that lead me to believe that the people who run this site secretly hate us and are trying to get us to drink ourselves to death.

    If I were Mitt, this would impact my self-esteem.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      Yes, it was almost as bad as when that person from the diner touched him.

      "Jeeves, draw my bath and don't forget the anti-bacterial soap."

    • tessiee

      Fortunately for those of us who enjoy schaedenfreude-based humor, nothing impacts Mitt's self-esteem.

  • JustPixelz

    Let's imagine what would happen if Obama had laughed while someone sang "America The Beautiful" like that at his rally…

    "This is yet more evidence of Obama's disdain for America, her history and her sacred values." — AOTK.

  • smitallica

    So Obama has Springsteen, Tom Hanks, and Morgan Freeman. And Romney gets Meat Loaf, Dave Mustaine, and half of Big & Rich.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      Don't forget Ted Nugent or he'll blow you to smithereens and have you for dinner.

    • ClassicPoopMoat

      Let me guess which half of Rig and Bitch Romney got.

    • Arkoday

      And Lindsay Lohan, maybe sorta-kinda we'll see possibly.

    Like a Snowball in Hell, I'll be gone when the 7th comes…

    Assume Romney revolted.

  • LibrarianX

    Mr. Loaf should stick with his movie career. I'm thinking: Meatloaf versus Predator

  • viennawoods13

    I always did hate and despise Meatloaf, and retroactively, I now know why.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

    I know Mitt Romney'd do anything to get elected, but I'm surprised he'd do that.

  • ElPinche

    Romney has Meatloaf, Obama has Katy Perry.
    However, Meatloaf does have bigger titays.

    (reprising yesterday's poetry corner)

    so much depends

    a red-faced

    beside the white

      I just love it when somebody does a poem parody and I actually get the reference. Well done.

  • Barrelhse

    Meatloaf. It's all shit in the morning.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    It's like the Romney campaign said "shit we need to tailor-make something for Wonkette!"

    • redarmyzombie

      It's nice to know they're thinking of us!

  • doloras

    Remember how this guy got his name. At a drunken teenage party, he lay down in the parking lot and let someone drive the front wheel of a truck over his head. The reaction: "Wow, dude, you must have brains of meatloaf". True story.

  • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

    OT but mr fuflans' first call for barry today got a convicted felon (for assaulting a cop).

    mr fuflans reminded him that he can still volunteer to intimidate romney supporters at the polling place of his choice.

    • James Michael Curley

      Way to go. Keep plugging. I sort of wish that my plans to actually be in Ohio worked out cause East Coast of NJ, BarneyFrankenstorm and like not getting any time off from work. Still I made about 60 phone calls to an area code near Columbus from the OFA list.

      We all must do our part. All praise to you and Mr. F.

  • LibrarianX

    I'm waiting for Willard to cut Mr. Meat's hair!

  • ingloriousbytch

    Mitt just needs someone to help him lock up the youth vote. What's Axl Rose up to?

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      And he's hoping Vanilla Ice will help him with the "urban" vote.

  • MinAgain

    Personally, I blame too much consumption of genetically modified waves of grain.

  • James Michael Curley

    Meat Loaf goes with Romney, but the heart and soul of his Bat Out of Hell album comes from Max and Roy of the E Street Band with Little Stevie being the glue that got the album recorded and Springsteen goes with Obama. Maybe this is why Meat Loaf looked in pain, left out in the rain again.

      Florida was mislabeled. s/b "Pudenda".

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    That does it. I'm burning all of my Meatloaf recordings. Wait, that's right, I don't have any.

  • a_pink_poodle

    Meat Loaf was the anthem to my youth. I'm crushed to see him like this. :(

    … but it was long ago and it was far away, oh God it seems so very far. And if life is just a highway, then the soul is just a car.

    And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are, objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are…

  • ProgressiveInga

    She still brings the funny: From @ElayneBoosler:
    "Meat Loaf Endorses Romney At Ohio Rally." Can Chopped Liver be far behind?

  • DickWharfinger

    I thought Mr. Loaf & Egg were siblings.

  • tessiee

    The folks who posted the secret Linda McCartney tape must be healous jealous that they've finally been topped.

  • cousinitt

    Even NY police officer Gil ("female, it's what's for dinner") Valle was heard to comment, "Meatloaf again?"

  • http://twitter.com/iburl iburl

    I thought Roseanne Barr was running for president against Romney, not changing her name to Meatloaf and endorsing Romney.

  • http://mbouffant.blogspot.com M. Bouffant

    I'm now in favor of a Romney presidency. It'll lead to a counter-cultural revival; beatniks will come back, as will real (stupid) rock & roll. Which will be better than those effing hipsters, American Id-hole, &c.

  • LibertyLover

    Praying for the end of time…

    Well, he apparently committed voter fraud so I guess he really is a Republican.

    Meatloaf's real first name is Leslie.
    Wolf Blitzer's real first name is Leslie.
    Coincidence?
    I THINK NOT!!

    What, no Victoria Jackson or Hank Williams, Jr.? WTF? WTF, indeed!

    "…you Mr. Trump recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership and so ultimately you didn’t blame Lil’ Jon or Meatloaf. You fired Gary Busey, and these are the decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir."

    You know Meat looks like he is receiving at a gang bang in the pic.

    But the question Willard posed years ago still stands:

    Who?

    Who?
