It didn’t take country legend Willie Nelson long to change his mind after endorsing Republican presidential candidate Gary Johnson last week. The country singer took it all back on Thursday.
“Yesterday, both the Teapot Party and Gary Johnson 2012 sent out press releases announcing the endorsement,” wrote Teapot Party member Steve Bloom, reports David Edwards at The Raw Story. “The media immediately jumped on it, with Politico, Fox and Raw Story leading the coverage. We were on a roll.”
But Nelson withdrew his endorsement after seeing press coverage of it.
