Heh: AP and ‘Today’ spotted some guy named George ‘Straight’ at the CMAs

http://twitter.com/#!/upinthisbrain/status/398310478788558848

We all make mistakes, but it’s been more than a day and NBC’s “Today” website is still reporting that someone named “George Straight” appeared at the Country Music Association Awards. George Strait could not be reached for comment.

Get it Strait, guys.

Next NBC News will tell us all about the family of “Marvin Gay” suing EMI.

The Associated Press Twitter feed committed the same act of “blasphemy.”

The social media editor running the @APEntertainment account admitted the error, issued a corrected tweet and thanked followers for the crowd-editing help.

There’s a lot of love for George Straight on Twitter.

Whoever he is, he should consider recording an album.

Charlie Daniels challenges liberals clinging bitterly to gun control

http://twitter.com/#!/CharlieDaniels/status/226303382070120449

The Left never lets a tragedy go to waste.

“Gun control” is trending on Twitter as liberals desperately spin the tragic Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting into a justification for banning firearms. Politicians, journalists and celebrities are howling for government action, but musician Charlie Daniels broke with the wild pack, tweeting his prayers and pushing back against the Left’s ghoulish attempt to score political points on the backs of the dead.

If you want to see government control at work look at Chicago,toughest laws,highest murder rates.

I wonder how many fast and furious guns are on the streets of America

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

As part time resident of Colorado let me say how much I love the state and the people pray God will comfort you all at this terrible time

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

The Left responded predictably.

If you want a stupid opinion on #guns check out this fucking inarticulate #RWNJ idiot. @charliedaniels #GOPFAIL

But Daniels took on the gun grabbers, patiently shooting down all the usual gun control talking points.

@Effyouguy Not politicizing anything just stating a fact I talk common sense ,not politics,the two have nothing to do with each other

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

Liberals would love for their attacks on gun ownership to go unchallenged so they can build support for gun control without pesky facts getting in the way. Not. Gonna. Happen.

@Ron4Right New York has had rigid gun laws for decades,case in point that it doesn't work. It only leaves innocent people helpless.

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@nhdogmom When you've got something besides ridiculous hyperbole and silliness to add to the conversation stop back by.

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@laurapcd1 I would still know that what the government wants to do will disarm innocent citizens while allowing criminals to stay armed

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@laurapcd1 I am for sensible gun control Taking license from crooked dealers,stop street sales etc but not leaving citizens defenseless

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@nhdogmom Not at all but to assume that I advocate giving everybody guns and ammo is hyperbole and untrue. Ibelieve in sensible gun control

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@jamesb2759 My state allows that and there is hardly any crime by legal carriers

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

@nhdogmom That's the point.I'm 75 years old ,been around guns all my life and would only use one for sport or protection Im not the problem

— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) July 20, 2012

Daniels also addressed the death wish.

@gatorboy1980 And you go seek some mental help.

Palestinian activists turn on Red Hot Chili Peppers

http://twitter.com/#!/MadeInNablus/status/243024021678080001

Refusing to boycott Israel has the Red Hot Chili Peppers in hot water with Palestinian activists. The band is scheduled to play Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv, Sept. 10, 2012. The concert’s opening act, Lebanon’s Mashrou’ Leila, has canceled, and many are calling for the band to ditch the date. It seems even a liberal bunch like RHCP is not immune to the ire of the Left. After all, one can’t allow art — or economics — to betray politics.

Famed Lebanese band @mashrou3leila announce will not open 4 @ChiliPeppers given subsequent concert in Israel: http://t.co/ZRu5MKVH #bds

Lebanon's @mashrou3leila cancels on @ChiliPeppers after latter refuses Israel boycott call http://t.co/SofiwI3I #BDS

.@ChiliPeppers You attended the Hoping Foundation show in 2011 and u contributed to raising money for Palestine. Pls do not perform Tel Aviv

— Made In Nablus (@MadeInNablus) September 4, 2012

.@ChiliPeppers would you entertain white south africans during apartheid? Heed the words of Desmon Tutu http://t.co/Px0RDmSq

— Zalameh (@BDS4Justice) September 4, 2012

Still time to do the right thing, stand up for oppressed people and boycott apartheid Israel, @ChiliPeppers #BDS

— Jinjirrie (@Jinjirrie) September 4, 2012

@ChiliPeppers 100s of Palestinian villages have been ethnically cleansed +destroyed.don't u mind? http://t.co/MgBIOHD0 http://t.co/dzh4emCr

But not everyone wants the band to bail. Some are willing to put politics aside for good music.

MT @haivri: @chilipeppers Don't give in to BDS terrorism. Feel free to perform in Israel.

— Yishai Fleisher (@YishaiFleisher) September 4, 2012

@ChiliPeppers can't wait to see u in concert on the 6th in Lebanon :))
