It's not often that I find myself agreeing with Toby Keith. Thinking about whether I could wrap a whole ringlet of his curls around my finger as I snuggled in his generous lap and whispered, "Shh, let's not talk"? Sure. What hot-blooded American has not. But agreeing with him?
“I don’t know, but I expect the wealthy to write a check ’cause it’s as bad as it’s ever been,” the Oklahoma-born Keith said. “It would be unpatriotic not to try to save the country. I’m sure people will bitch about it, but if it meant we get to operate in this country and live here another day, then so be it.
“One way or another, before it’s over they’re gonna have to come and take big money from the earners and big corporations to save the country. I’m sure that everybody that has a patriotic cell in their system will say, ‘If it’s gotta be done, it’s gotta be done.’ I’d rather live here and not have as much money than live anywhere else and have twice as much.”
You know America is in a strange place when Toby "We'll Put a Boot in Your Ass" Keith starts sounding reasonable.
