Singer/songwriter Neko Case shocked and disgusted some fans early Saturday by admitting that — gasp! — she’s a Rush fan.

Deep breath, guys. She didn’t mean that Rush. What do you take her for? Some kind of monster?

A woman who likes Rush Limbaugh? Heaven forfend!

      I’m guessing Neko is not one of Rush’s Top 10 female names…

    I had never heard of this woman. But, I’m an old fart that thinks most anything on FM is hippie music anyway.

    • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

      i have to respectfully disagree with you, slightly: it is hippie-wannabe music. i get so tired of hearing shrill, nasally, whiny music coming from today’s female singers….like her or dislike her, at least adele has a powerful voice. the first time i ever heard “rolling in the deep” i thought it was a retro song from one of famous blues singers from the 60s.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Brett, I should have been more concise. I pretty much don’t like any music. “Hippie music” is a term from my youth that I like to drag out every now and then.

        I can honestly say that I wouldn’t recognize Neko, Adele or most any singer after the late 70s. I just don’t listen to it.

        • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

          i know, and i wasn’t calling you out or anything. it just touched off a pet peeve of mine. i don’t remember the last time i bought anything classified as popular music. i am more interested in classical, now.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Rush Limbaugh is the music I listen to.

            Went back to Ohio. But my city was gone.
            There was no train station.
            There was no downtown.
            South Howard had disappeared. All my favorite places,
            my city had been pulled down.
            Reduced to…
            Parking spaces.
            A, O, wtg Ohio!

      • irishgirl91

        Not all women, just the ones Rolling Stone likes. This one comes from the school of music that always sounds like an acoustic version of the Vagina Monologues. I have faith in the younger women since Adele,Florence and the Machine and even (gasp) Katie Perry. They enjoy being a woman without crying about how unfair it is to be a woman. IMHO.

  • Batboy66

    Neko has a great voice but she’s an occupy supporter so I’m sure she meant the first and last name in Canadian Power Trios

    How shameful are the liberals. I play musical instruments and listen to everyone from Gospel to Communist. I don’t like the politics of Elvis Costello but I am inspired by his musical and lyrical skills.

    Neko… Neko… Neko… don’t you know that you are not allowed to “like” anything. The rules are simple… you have to “hate” what you don’t “like”.
    That’s a slippery slope though… once you start, you have to make sure you “hate” EVERYTHING that you don’t “like”. If you leave something out it is declared that you “like” them if you don’t “hate” them.
    Best thing is to keep your mouth shut if you care what other people think of you.
    Guess i was wrong about it being simple.

    my wife is a Rush babe, and I couldn’t be more proud.

    She was shocked and a little taken aback when she first heard I listened to Rush, but she started listening on her own and before I knew it she would ask me, “did you hear what Rush said today?”

    No Rush Babe would EVER ask “Am I the only one?” because anyone who listens to Rush can’t help but know that millions of women and men love love love him.

    I’ve always liked Neko. Now, I’m a HUGE fan. I agree with @nc. Country, country folk, I hear her on XM Outlaw Country all the time.

  • Love of Country

    Women are either named Julia or they like Rush Limbaugh …. this isn’t rocket science.

  • disqus_CR25ev2Z1s

    I like Neko’s music but make no mistake: she seems to be fairly horrible person. She once noted on Twitter that noticing that she had the same hairstyle as Sarah Palin made her want to go out and have an abortion purely out of spite.

    I saw her play a few months before that at a fairly large venue in Tuscaloosa, AL. She refused to acknowledge the audience at all during her set and made her back-up singer “translate” for her.

    Twitter’s a great tool for letting us see what public or semi-public figures are really like on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the results are usually not pretty.

    • reneehaigh

      did you ever hear or read comment on biggs and his whore? it is enough to make you vomit!

    • Derelictus

      The flippant way so many female “entertainers” talk about abortion truly disgusts me. You don’t have to be militantly pro-life to find the act of abortion unethical in many (if not most) situations. And yet you have people like Stevie Nicks who has apparently had 4 abortions during her career, all purely for “convenience” reasons (too busy touring blah blah).

      I’m honestly starting to wonder if professional entertainers should even be allowed to vote; they tend to live in a fantasy world of their own making and know next to nothing about economics, politics beyond radical posturing and reactionary counterculture “oppose it to spite my daddy” nonsense.

    i love rush!! he is the shit! he is honest: informed: intelligent: yada yada yada!! need i say more? people that don’t like him or are offended are scared because the truth will set you free!!!

      Is there another Rush?

        The Canadian band Rush. You should check them out–their lyrics are really Libertarian-ish. Not your typical jock rock.

          My Uncle has a country place no one knows about.
          He said it used to be a farm before the climate laws.
          On Sunday’s I elude the spy’s to hop the turbine freight.
          To fall outside the wire where my white haired uncle waits.

          Based on the short story “A nice morning drive” by Richard Foster. http://www.2112.net/xanadu/articles/a_nice_morning_drive.htm

          Excerpt: “A dozen years ago things had begun changing. First there were a few modest safety and emission improvements required on new cars; gradually these became more comprehensive. The governmental requirements reached an adequate level, but they didn’t stop; they continued and became more and more stringent. Now there were very few of the older models left, through natural deterioration and . . . other reasons.”

          c Nothing liberal about “Red Barchetta”

        • S H

          Yep, I love quoting the lyrics from The Trees to lefties. But it begs the question, to people who think tea partiers are right wing evil people far outside of mainstream views (unlike them of course… eye roll)… is the band Rush much better?

          • John Fowler

            She’s not listening to the words. She thinks Rush is cool because someone that’s really into music told her they rock.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    She’s an insult to nekos everywhere as Neko is Japanese for cat. So she is essentially a Cat Case.

    There is a bit of a hashtag war going on with #Rush between Limbaugh and Geddy Lee etc. Looks like Case is talking about the latter. There is an alternate out there, #RushIsABand which I tried to counter with #RushIsAMan.

    I wonder if out of the 20 million plus people who listen to him per week include any females, or if the 450 million dollar ten yr contract has any woman listeners, who would pay him so much of he had no audience

  • http://twitter.com/MoueLaMoue Moue La Moue (D)

    I feel for her. Really I do. She should at least attempt to listen to Mr. Limbaugh and his program. There is actually a whole lot I agree with, and some that I get to politely disagree with. That’s the beauty of America! We can disagree, and I don’t have to burn down an Embassy, drag a poor man through the streets after beating and torturing him to death, or hail “Death to … so-and-so!” In America, I can agree and disagree on several points with a person without bloody murder.

  • Emery Calame

    I never heard of Neko Case. Whatever.

  • John Stephens

    On January 20th 2013, Barack Obama will no longer be President and Rush Limbaugh will still be on the air. And I will have long since forgotten that Neko Case ever existed.

  • Jum1801

    She means the band, you simpletons.

    • Mr. Fever Head

      Of course she does, did you even read the twitter feed posted above. You are the simpleton here.

  • Mike Lee

    Neko Case. Another dummy. I have no idea who she is. Lucky for me. Whether she meant Rush or Rush Limbaugh is irrelevant. “I am the only female who likes…” is just plain stupid.

  • JD

    Neko has a magnificent voice. check her out!

  • http://www.tempeteaparty.org Lee Reynolds

    Who is Neko Case and why is her taste in music or political pundits somehow important? I’m here cause Instapundit linked to this, but I’ve still no idea who she is cause nothing in all of these tweets makes that clear. Is she famous, or was this posted to point out how silly certain segments of society are for assuming that no one with internal genitalia could possibly agree with conservative ideas?

    • Sigivald

      The latter.

      (It’s doubly hilarious because of the assumption that *all content must be political*, that she obviously meant Rush Limbaugh rather than Rush, The Band, despite being, you know, a musician.)

    I love Neko Case. She’s one of the very best singers/songwriters of the last 20 years. Dark, brooding, haunting, sublime alt-country at it’s finest. I love Rush, too. Both the super-prog and Limbaugh varieties.

    The album (remember albums?) “2112” is based on Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead”, BTW.

  • richard40

    Lets be a little more precise. Many maried women like Rush, and the majority of married women like repubs generally. Single women like repubs and Rush much less. If you want to go to zero, you would have to narrow the field to radical feminist, man hating, never get a date (except from a PC cringing metrosexual) mush less a husband, my vagina is everything, I want my free birth control and abortions, hags, to get to zero Rush Limbaugh fans.
