Mr. Snider on Mr. and Mrs. Gore.

(More or less via Vodkapundit) This would be Mr. Dee Snider, of the band Twisted Sister: the Gores, of course, are Al and Tipper. You may remember that Snider and the Gores had a run-in roughly a quarter of a century ago over quote-unquote ‘family values.’ Mr. Snider revisited this controversy recently, mostly to compare his and their long-term marital/parenting strategies:

I have two responses.


Second, this is what they were complaining about:

We’re Not Gonna Take It, Twisted Sister

Democratic politicians are weird.

*That last “HA” removed for your decision to cross party lines and vote for Obama in 2008, Mr. Snider.  I understand that many people had that lapse in judgment, and that it seemed a good idea at the time, but gently admonishing you like this is more or less obligatory on my part. Still, maybe we could get your guys for the ’12 convention? You, U2, and Elton John: just imagine all y’all getting together on the stage at the end…

    I don’t think Dee has ever been anything other than a liberal Democrat, Moe. Hell, he even urged people to vote for Gore in 2000.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      Supposedly he’s a registered Republican, Aruges. Annoyed at Bush, which is unfortunate, but it’s going to be at least one more GOP administration before we have the next wave of people get over that.

  • Cameron says:

    I never did forgive the Gores for the PMRC. Nice to see Mr. Snider getting the last laugh out of all of this.

  • wombat-socho says:

    Come to think of it, I remember Dee laying the smackdown on Al way back then, saying he was going to be retiring and going home to spend time with his kids. “Can you say the same thing, Senator?” Indeed, Mr. Snider got the last laugh there.
