‘Credible political spokesperson’ Katy Perry campaigns for Obama in ‘Forward’ dress

We’ll call this a shock poll, but only because we’re shocked that anyone bothered to ask. According to the Hollywood Reporter, voters under 35 were eight times more likely than older voters to consider Katy Perry “more credible as a political spokesperson.” Note: That poll was taken Oct. 29, after Perry had appeared in her latex ballot dress but before today’s appearance with Barack Obama at a Milwaukee rally wearing this.

We’re not sure if the dress was made before the Obama campaign decided to kick things up a notch by adding an exclamation point to its slogan, if the dressmaker simply ran out of fabric, or if, like the rest of us, Perry just isn’t that excited about four more years.

ABC’s Jake Tapper, back from his one-day foray into covering the Benghazi cover-up, was on hand.

Just when Tapper had regained just a bit of credibility for daring to report on Libya, he had to add this.

For the sake of equal time, enjoy this Romney belt buckle made for Kid Rock.

    What a tacky dress, Katy …. sorry. And memes like “Forward” and “Progressive” are actually one word contradictions …. unbelievable!

    So, wonder how many people were at the rally?, guess it’s not as many as the Romney rally the other night it they’d be touting it.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Just shy of 1000.

  • ERMERGERD

    I like Katy. Eh, it doesn’t bother me unless she were to start acting like an ass on twitter or something.

    • Johnny Banco

      If you consider her wearing of a dress like that, ridiculously prostituting herself out for 0bama, to not be “acting like an ass” to a degree that bothers you, I already know if I think you are or not! :)

      • ERMERGERD

        Okay. You can have whatever opinion you want.

        • Johnny Banco

          Thank you for the permission – I don’t know what I would have done with myself if you hadn’t given it to me! :)

          • ERMERGERD

            No need to be so hostile.

          • Johnny Banco

            Why do you presume that I am being hostile instead of lighthearted? For accuracy’s sake, think of me being like Don Rickles, not Bill Maher! :)

            PS I honestly do find Katy Perry to be a preening bimbo who ridiculously prostitutes herself out for 0bama, though!

          • ERMERGERD

            LOL I’m still a fan of her music. Though now I don’t find her to be smart. (not that I ever did)

      • ERMERGERD

        Okay. You can have whatever opinion you want.

    • Abigail

      I know, Emily. I love “E.T.”…. but it’s hard to listen to her on the radio anymore knowing that she’s a total shill for BHO…. sigh. Why must they open up their big jabbers for anything but glorious music? Don’t they know they alienate half their base?

      • ERMERGERD

        Honestly. It’s not a smart business decision at all. If Cher had any republican fans, I’m sure she lost them long ago.

    Oh Katy, sweetie, you can quit wearing those latex dresses anytime…kthx 😉

    • Kim

      Don’t hate because most Of you Republicans are outta shape & lack diversity. She can rock latex & rock it well!

      • Ironhawk86

        In the name of good music, do NOT use the words “Katy Perry” and “rock” in the same sentence.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        And most Liberals are out of shape (look at those on welfare, section 8, and food stamps). It’s a personal choice to be out of shape, not a political one. When you get older and graduate high school you’ll know the difference. I bet Stacey Dash could wear a latex dress better, but I doubt she’d lower herself.

      • Gallatin

        Even in a latex forward dress she has no talent.

      • TocksNedlog

        She probably ‘rocks latex’ every night. She could teach Sandra Fluke a thing or two.

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        Figures you are a fan of no-talent singing bimbos like Katy.

      • bluewaternavy

        Don’t know where you got that info. 99% percent of R women I know are lean and fit. You guys have liposuctioned people such as Cher and such lithe ladies like Roaseanne Barr.

    Okay, Katy, you need to quit drinking the O’s Kool-Aid now!

  • Dio Heerai

    Her DRESSMAKER does this to all her dresses so she doesn’t put them on backwards ..the poor thing

    • GaryTheBrave

      Or upside down.

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        Or inside out.

    Makes me ashamed to admit I’m under 35.

    To steal a quote from the movie, ‘Hackers’:

    “Spandex: it’s a privilege. Not a right!”

    And on Ms. Perry. That privilege is wasted.

    • Billbow

      Name a couple of right wing, racist, aging, inbred, guitar players: Ted Nugent and Hank Williams. They wear “HATE FOR ROMNEY” on their Confederate T shirts.

      • http://youtu.be/efJUFlD1S8Q DaleVM14W

        What are you smoking, Bilbow?

      • Ironhawk86

        Unlike those two skanks, Hank and Nudge can at least play actual instruments.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        Awwwwww the hate is strong in you, little one. If someone doesn’t agree with you, call them a racist. How droll.

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        Project much?

      • brianmouland

        Billy do just act like a troll for attention or are you actually that dumb

        Since you mentioned “hate”, may we now compare the rhetoric of some of Obama’s biggest influences and backers to that of Nugent or Williams?

  • medicinewomantwo

    Does it say “Backward” on the otherside? so she would know how to put it on?

    • SAndrews

      Now THAT’S FUNNY!

    • TocksNedlog

      Actually, it says “Thank You for your anonymous donation!”

    And she matters how?

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I used to ‘think’ Katy Perry was rediculous.

  • Billbow

    After seeing Katy in that hot dress, my mind is made up. I’m voting for Obama!

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      Simple minds like shiny objects. :-)

      • brianmouland

        And Big boobs

        • Brian Roastbeef

          Yes. Big boobs like shiny objects too.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Good luck.

      So brave to admit how shallow and uninformed you are and, by brave, I really mean why don’t you sit this one out.

      Hell let’s get some for STEVE Perry while we’re at it

  • Kim

    & Romney resembles a fictional droid, C3PO. You love ,who you love. @ least she’s empowering unlike mindless Ann Romney! Just deal with our 4 more years. We suffered Lil Bush!

      Liberal venom..tastes an awful lot like bitter cough syrup.

  • GaryTheBrave

    I got a Photoshop idea. Take the latest iteration of O’s pathetic tag line FORWARD! and change it to FORWARNED!

  • Donna Jackson

    I guess I noticed this because I sew, but it looks like the hem is out of the front of it.

  • Ironhawk86

    Are free autotune machines part of the Obama platform now?

  • Sketti

    I don’t care that she has poor taste in men, I still love her! No ones perfect; well except S E Cupp <3!

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    She may be politically regressive, but if her song comes on the radio, I’ll listen to it. Poor dear is still in her 20’s so we can forgive her political leanings to the Left. Eventually most enlightened people migrate to The Right as they get older. Yes we were born the same year she and I, but I never bought into the Liberal Agenda.

    • Ironhawk86

      Why would you subject your ears to such torture?

  • JD Olson

    Oh my, how unforgiving is the rubber dress. Katy, there is nothing wrong with your body or your music–just your judgement.

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Yawn. I prefer Little Boots. Weird thing about her – she’s a musician who makes music, instead of puking out political opinion non-stop. Odd approach, I know.

  • Dan Thorpe

    Honestly I think she looks good. I may not agree with her choice of candidate or the fact she is there at all. Obama is just using these singers as a way to get people to think he is hip and relevant and blind voters to the fact that he is an awful president. For you liberals that have come hear, yes I know that Kid Rock has played for a couple of Romney events, but people were going to see Romney not Kid Rock. Can you say the same about Obama

  • TocksNedlog

    WHOREWARD!

    • Hello Jerry (D)

  • irishgirl91

    Smoking a lot of the ganj with bff Rhianna. I read my 21y.o the part about being a credible source and she said it is why she doesn’t feel a part of her generation.

  • Dan

    Never fails to amaze me! Obama says he’s going to raise taxes on the rich, but the rich keep trying to get him re-elected! Well, the Hollywood elite rich anyway….what does that tell us? ( I know what it tells me, which is why I don’t attend movies or concerts any more)

  • lillymckim

    I’m showing Kid Rock some love by pre-ordering his new album on iTunes he has been working hard for all of us and it’s a small thank you!

    Thank You Kid Rock! You are a patriot!
