Rage Against Ryan
That didn't take long. We posted a bit on Paul Ryan's unlikely claim to be a Rage Against the Machine fan, in which I suggested that Ryan represented "the Machine" they were raging against. Now Tom Morello has quickly written a piece saying the same thing, and more. "Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn't understand them. Governor Chris Christie [not to mention David Brooks] loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn't understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.
"Ryan claims that he likes Rage's sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don't care for Paul Ryan's sound or his lyrics."
