Johnny

STATEMENT FROM MICKEY LEIGH:

"It has been brought to my attention that Linda Cummings, using the name "Ramone," has recently been in the media joining with the Palin family and the McCains to attempt to aid their campaign for the Presidency. As a President of Ramones Productions, and brother of Joey Ramone, I just want it to be clear that Linda Cummings does not represent the political views of the Ramones. Surely, as for Joey Ramone, the only Ramones song he would sing at a Republican campaign event would be 'Glad To See You Go!'

"I should add that when Johnny stated 'God Bless George Bush' at the 2002 Rock&Roll Hall of Fame awards, I realize now that he was on to something. Because if it were not for George Bush and his handling of our country the past 8 years, I doubt so many Americans, including so many highly regarded Republicans, would now be getting behind Barack Obama. So, yes, God bless George Bush for paving the way to Obama."

~ ~ Mickey Leigh

I thought Joey Ramone was a conservative....? And that's why he hung out with Vincent Gallo....? Because I guess they were both a couple of jerks and that's why they got along so well....?

Phew! It's safe to go back to associating "Blitzkrieg Bop" with nothing more harmful than Diet Pepsi, then.

Though I'm sure ACORN has registered all the Ramones three or four times over. Joey and Johnny can cancel each others' votes out from beyond the grave.

Nothing to do with politics, but:

When will Mickey Leigh shut up?!? For three decades he has been riding his brother's coattails.

One of the best Ramones songs is about her.

"I thought Joey Ramone was a conservative....?'

I'm assuming you've never heard "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg"?

It's like saying: I would kindly accept being gang raped by 4 guys for a blowjob by a hottie...

Isn't this how we got into this mess in the first place? People thinking I would gladly take 4 years of Bush after the 8 years of Clinton. Look how well that turned out, oops.
