Korn Frontman Jonathan Davis Endorses Rand Paul for President

During a recent interview with Death and Taxes, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis was asked about the latest batch of Presidential candidates. Davis’ responses demonstrated the same nuanced thinking the vocalist brings to his lyrics:

“They all suck. The fucking candidates, they all suck.”

Davis then turned into a caricature of an old conservative:

“Why can’t there be anybody good? I just want the America I had as a kid growing up, and it’s not that no more.”

Just FYI — Davis was born in ’71, so if we define his time “as a kid growing up” as being from his birth until his eighteenth birthday in 1988, the Commanders in Chief to whom he is referring are Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. Reagan had Alzheimer’s, thought AIDS was a plague sent by God to kill homosexuals and sinners, and spent an untold fortune trying to develop space lasers despite every scientist he asked telling him it couldn’t be done (shocker: it still hasn’t been done). And I don’t think anyone needs a history lesson in Nixon and Ford. My point being: there wasn’t anything all that great about the presidents when Davis was a kid.

But for the sake of argument, let’s say, okay, all those guys were amazing. Do any of the candidates harken back to the good ol’ days of Reagan et al.?

“I like Rand Paul, but that’s never gonna happen. Ron Paul should have been president, but that would have never happened.”

So there ya go, folks. Turns out the dude who wrote “All Day I Dream About Sex” is a political genius. Who knew?
