Toby Keith, perhaps best known to non-country audiences for his post-Sept. 11 song “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue,” says he’s a Democrat, and was impressed by the senator from Illinois.

Wow, uh, this was a surprise. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a song that screams “REPUBLICAN!” as loudly as Toby Keith’s hateful (and hate-full) post-9/11 hit. (I should’ve remembered that country stars never seem write their own songs.)

It’s not exactly Victor Lazlo welcoming Rick Blaine back to the fight, but I suppose it’s one more step for red-state America towards the path of thought and humanity.
