Carole King: Why the Liberal Left doesn't get it
Twin Falls, Idaho - The Times News ^ | 10/22/04 | Carole King

Posted on 11/03/2004 3:24:43 PM PST by astroman1

Songwriter Carole King is a long time resident of Idaho. Her home is just North of Sun Valley, where John Kerry has a vacation home. She stumped for fledgling democrats across our state. She wrote this comment in a letter to our local newspaper:

"If the current situation isn't working for you, please vote for Sen. Kerry. Women: you don't have to vote the way your father or husband does. It's a secret ballot."

I personally witnessed while waiting in line at the polls, many energized people insulted by her remarks - with the willingness to wait up to two hours to vote because of comments like this. Is it any wonder why the elite Left lost this election? They truly believe that women are being supressed by their conservative men...

Dear Carole: You know, you don't have to use your married name. Bless your little heart.

I may be mistaken on your intent, but just in case I'm not, Stanley is the name of her hometown, a beautiful little area in the middle of the Sawtooth mountains. Wonderful place to visit, but I hate to see people living there, spoiling the beauty.

It must be true. Her husband, Don voted for Bush.

I know John Kerry personally. He has the strength, courage, intelligence, integrity and experience to lead America

That may very well be, but I don't know you personally. How can I trust you?

Also, another little bit of info...Stanley, Idaho is "the home of the lawnchairs"...which you will see at the local baseball diamond. No finer place to see fourth of July fireworks, but take your down parka, even in July its cold at night !

How do we know that her husband voted for Bush?

Sorry for the posting error - my bad. Stanley is the town she lives in. It isn't her married name.

And I don't have to vote the way some singer or songwriter does.

How will Sen. Kerry pay for health care and education and reduce the deficit? If you're making under $200,000 a year, Sen. Kerry will not raise your taxes. But my taxes will go up to where they were before George W. Bush took office. As they should.

Maybe Carol should learn some math. With all that Hanoi John promised, there’s no way that only “The Rich” could pay for it.
Guess I’ll stop looking at old Carol King album covers from now on.

Just goes to show that Effin' is the epitome of 60's mentality.

I heard on the radio that first it was Carole King, then James Taylor singing at Kerry's 'Victory' bash.

Liberal candidates, liberal politics and liberal singers lost yesterday........liberally.

"how long can one gal coast one the strength of one album" (Tapestry)..."

Coast? One album? Try hundreds of songs recorded by everyone from Tammy Wynette to the Beatles with folks in the middle like The Drifters, Jan and Dean, Quincy, Steve Lawrence, Aretha Franklin...the list is long.

I've always found the habit of tearing someone's talent or career down because of what he/she thinks to be childish and accomplishing of nothing. She's got her head up her ass politically but you've got to look long and hard to find someone more successful in America.

Dear Carole,

Evidently, You've Got A Friend somewhere in the Democractic Party. Sorry that you have been around so many male users in your life that none could make you say, "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman."

You Just Call Out My Name if you want a dose of American truth.

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? I doubt it. But,One Fine Day you'll awaken to the realism that all you have had in your life is doom and gloom, failed love, failed business connections and backstabbing losers. You say, "Where You Lead" and you go, mindlessly oblivious to the concerns of common men and women. You know the folks who paid for all your mistakes.

You have woven a Tapestry that is So Far Away from reality as to be in, say, Podunk or Smackwater Jack USA. Now and Forever from this point forward, before It's Too Late try to do one thing, just one thing right. It Might As Well Rain Until September for people like you. Sad depressed thing, I feel your pain.

I Feel The Earth Move when I think of Kerry's attempt to launch the beginning of the end of his over thirty year old plan. I pray that no Child Of Mine ever has to call another soldier, Brother, Brother. But if so, I pray he will be a patriot, not a sell - out.

Now, you've Been To Canaan and Anyone At All can tell you that BUSH is the Friend of Israel.

I, nay, we, the American People have heard enough of your Jazzman.
