Hall & Oates fans start anti-Romney Super PAC

By Rolling Stone

Two Hall & Oates fans have formed the Hall and Oates Fans for America Super PAC, reports The Atlantic. Billy Hansmann and Anthony Schuch from Atlanta, Ga., plan to use any funds donated to the group to create videos against Republican presidential ticket Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

"I find it really unfortunate that Republicans tend to play such hardball and with very little response from the Democratic side," said Hansmann, who notes that he is a Libertarian and is unhappy with the Republican Party. "Why, with the exception of a couple comics out there, are people not going after some of these guys?"

How could anybody get too excited about Hall & Oates anyway?  I'll bet these two are Hall & Oates wannabes, if there is such a thing.

Daryl who and John who? This is the last gasp for some people to hold on to what ever miserable career they had and a sad attempt to stay in the public eye. No one cares what their thoughts are in regards to thier political views. You get to vote like everyone else in November so vote and shut up. Peoples minds are made up to who they will vote for and the fact that Obama has done nothing for America  is going to get him voted out.
