STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland has issued the following commentary on former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin's statement that "liberalism is a mental disorder":
"Liberalism is a mental disorder!!?? I'd like to see any doctor or therapist identify it is as such.
"Sarah Palin's only attraction is that of perverts and comedians, though. She is sort of cute in her leather heavy metal jacket. Oh, wait, maybe she can get a gig on the Salahi reality show. She says, 'Government that governs less governs best,' but what about the Bush's — so many partners with the gun slingers from Texas mentally seduced and bled the lines of the constitution. One example: Rove.
"This 'Tea Party' has nothing to do with the original Tea Party in 1773. That was a rebellion against King George and his sovereignty… or, alleged sovereignty over our country which we had formed over basic, normal, hardworking and spiritual values; Never to put in the place the idea of church and state becoming one. We are becoming closer to this than ever before.
"Barack Obama is an amazing President. He is smart and has tackled more issues in one year than our former President did in his entire term because he was only focused on the war (a.k.a. 'weapons of mass destruction').
"I don't want to give the impression that I am anti-military, though. I have the utmost respect for those that give their lives, time and hearts to protect our country both here at home and abroad."
