Bobo (link fixed) has a piece today about Bruce Springsteen. Shorter Bobo: I really love Bruce Springsteen and feel that I learned from listening to his stories of “teenage couples out on a desperate lark, workers struggling as the mills close down, and drifters on the wrong side of the law”.
Why do righties like the Boss so much? Aren’t they at least mad that he did that song about Charlie Starkweather?
Update. I like this answer from commenter Paris:
Bruce lives the macho stereotype many of the righties can only dream of. They’re too busy standing in airport mens rooms, indulging in fetishes, and wearing bow ties.
