Quote of the Day: ‘We Republicans Don’t Have a Lot of Songs to Choose From’
When Wisconsin GOP Senate Candidate Jeff Fitzgerald decided to use a song by the Dropkick Murphys as walk-on music, the band was not amused.
“The stupidity and irony of this is laughable,” the band wrote. “A Wisconsin Republican U.S. Senate candidate - and crony of anti-Union Governor Scott Walker - using a Dropkick Murphys song as an intro is like a white supremacist coming out to gangsta rap!”
This complaint led Fitzgerald to utter today’s quote of the day:
“I like their music, and that’s the song from ‘The Departed.’ I always liked the beginning of that song. My last name is Fitzgerald,” he said. “We Republicans don’t have a lot of songs we can choose from.”
There’s always Toby Keith.
