Keith doesn't support the Iraq war -- "Never did," he says -- and he favors setting a time limit on the occupation. He says he suspects civil war in Iraq is inevitable and predicts the Kurds will be the victors: "I promise you, they'll end up with it all." (My emphasis.)
The story goes on to talk about how Toby is a lifelong Democrat who would "never switch parties," yet he's that rare breed of Democrat who donates exclusively to Republicans. He's also that rare breed of war opponent who put stuff like this up at his concerts.
Seriously, can anyone find me an instance from before May 2003 in which Toby Keith went on record as having opposed the war in Iraq? Anybody?
I know, I'm probably being ungrateful and ungracious. I should be happy that yet another prominent individual (one with conservative credibility, no less) has, for whatever reason, joined the anti-war chorus. And yet the only thing I care to say to Keith in this instance is: Fuck you, Toby, and the Ford truck you rode in on. And that's courtesy of the red, white, and blue.
