Lately we’ve seen a lot of the pouting, product-burning ritual of the Republican who finds out that people can have different political views than his own, and country music star Willie Nelson is the most recent target. Nelson is a lifelong Democrat, a fact that seems to have escaped the notice of some of his fans who are now outraged that he’s supporting Rep. Beto O’Rourke for Senate in Texas. Willie’s not too worried, though:
“I don’t care,” the 85-year-old native Texan said. “I don’t care. They’re entitled to their opinion, and I’m entitled to mine.” […]
“I love flak,” he cracked. “We’re not happy ’til they’re not happy.”
Did these people really think they were going to get a rise out of Willie Nelson? They obviously haven’t been paying much attention.
