Michele Bachmann thought the iconic Tom Petty hit “American Girl” was the perfect song to help launch her campaign.
The only problem?
Petty (vocally) disagreed with her.
That may be, Entertainment Weekly pointed out, because Petty doesn’t see eye to eye with conservatives.
He also lashed out when George W. Bush used his song “Won’t Back Down” at a rally.
So perhaps Bachmann should look to the (admittedly slim) pool of right-leaning musicians.
