KISS frontman Gene Simmons: Rick Perry will be our next president
Hot Air ^ | August 16, 2011 | TINA KORBE

Just looking at a picture of KISS grosses me out, but you’ve gotta wonder whether Gene Simmons might be on to something with a prediction he tweeted yesterday.

“I voted for Pres Bush. I voted for Pres Clinton. I voted for Pres Obama. The next president will be Gov Rick Perry,” Simmons broadcasted.

A few minutes later, he backed up the prediction with another tweet touting what few conservatives would consider to be Perry’s most sterling credential.

“Gov Perry worked for Al Gore and then switched to Republican. He will be our next President. I’ve never been wrong,” Simmons wrote.

But, before you disqualify his opinion because he voted for Clinton and Obama, consider that Simmons has been vocal about his regret for the way he cast his vote in 2008. The Daily Caller has more:

You gotta assume Nugent is a Perry guy. Unless he’s holding out for someone else, I would think he’d go with his hunting partner.

Simmons is a very shrewd business man. He works in the private sector. I would take his predictions over Karl Rove any day of the week.

Simmons said he has never been wrong. Must be nice never to have been wrong, but if he voted for Obama he was wrong all right. Obama won and everyone who voted for him was wrong, and we are paying the price.

Because Alice Cooper is a Republican. I saw him on 60 minutes and you should also search Alice Cooper quotes on politics and it still floors me about his quotes on Christianity.

This was telegraphed when, the day after the Bilderberg conference, Gingrich’s whole campaign team went to Perry, who was not even an announced candidate at the time.

Perry is being deliberately promoted by elite-owned media in order to make certain that no choice available on the ballot in 2012 is any serious threat to the status quo.

The narrowing of our choices to what the establishment approves is so blatant it’s nauseating. Gary Johnson, cut by CNN? Seriously? Since when does CNN make cuts to the GOP Presidential field? And of course the deliberate ignoring of Ron Paul that Jon Stewart exposed brilliantly the other day is quite obvious as well.

This is exactly the kind of process that resulted in John McCain - the guy people pulled the lever for hoping he would die in office (the sooner the better) so that Palin could take over. (I seriously had people make that argument to me ALL THE TIME.)

Well, yeah.

I also saw some special about the charitable golf tourney that he sponsors.

Like I said, he comes cross as a pretty decent guy. One of the interviews I saw had the the interviewer express the same opinion. Cooper replied (approximately), "What? So, did you think that sat around the house in my full stage garb? It's just an ACT, people!"

Good friend and Texas Gov. Rick Perry should remember that now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

Now is that time, Rick. Run for president.

My favorite Alice Cooper quote:

“If you’re listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you’re a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we’re morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.”

As I am knowledgeable that Nugent hails from Texas, I expected he’d be supportive of a fellow Texan. I was just attempting some light humor.
