    First New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was rebuffed by The Boss. Now another well-know liberal musician has spurned the advances of a right-wing politician-fan.

    In a brutal Rolling Stone editorial, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello calls Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's recent vice presidential pick, the "embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades."

    I was happy to see Ryan publicly humiliated by his favorite band.
    What's baffling is why Ryan would have liked them in the first place -- Rage is probably the most militantly liberal band of the last 20 years... apparently Ryan missed the entire message of every single one of their songs.

    I did not understand it, either. There are a lot of bands and musical artists out there that have political views and are well known for them, but Rage Against The Machine almost seem to be political activists that also happen to be musicians.
    I guess Ryan failed in his attempt to be cool and hip.
