Something tells me Clay Aiken picked the wrong time to run for office.
In a year when Democrats are bolting from Obama left and right, being associated with any sort of warm feelings for Lord Barry is an absolute liability.
Meanwhile, the former “American Idol” runner up already has a huge uphill battle on his hands if he seriously hopes to defeat Tea Party Congresswoman Renee Ellmers and take away her House seat in North Carolina–even Ronan Farrow admits it. So the fact that he absolutely melted with love for the president during the 2012 election cycle is probably something lil’ Clay doesn’t want to be reminded of.
Spoken like a true Democrat, Aiken proclaims in response to his old Obama-fawning footage, “I didn’t go out and speak on behalf of the White House necessarily.” Well, yeah–you’re technically right about that, Clay. But you certainly were “energized” about helping put the man back in office after a ridiculous first term. Why not just be honest about it? You’re an Obamaniac! Oh, that’s right–you can’t really get elected by admitting that these days, since Barack’s popularity is below hemorrhoids.
Here’s a question. Which of the following is more likely to happen: Clay winning his race…or Ronan Farrow getting his TV show renewed?
