'Should we tell her?': Kari Lake roasted over her rally entrance song choice
Failed Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake was on the receiving end of a roasting by AzCentral columnist Laurie Roberts over her choice of an entrance song at her most recent rally to plug yet another attempt to get her 2022 election loss overturned.
Roberts joined with one of her readers in pointing out that Lake decided that the song "American Woman" -- which is critical of American women — was an appropriate selection which Roberts, in turn, called "... the funniest thing I saw all week."
Noting that Lake used the Lenny Kravitz cover of the Canadian band Guess Who's oldie, Roberts concentrated on the lyrics which state, in part, "Don't come hanging around my door --I don't want to see your face no more --I got more important things to do --Than spend my time growing old with you."
After asking rhetorically, "Should we tell her?" Roberts added, "Yeah, nothing funny about her now seven-month-old refusal to accept the fact that she just flat-out lost."
"I would guess a fair number of Arizona voters — the ones who put Katie Hobbs into the Governor’s Office come to mind, as well as the ones who have tired of her post-election tirade — might agree that Lake has hit upon the perfect anthem," she quipped before noting reader Michael Jonas wrote to her stating, "The lyrics are incredibly appropriate…….if one is strongly opposed to Ms. Lake,” before adding, "Why she’d do that is beyond me.”
To which Roberts pointed out, "It’s probably because, in her view of the world, the song is a compliment."
