Pop singer Kelly Clarkson, the first contestant to win “American Idol,”
took a lot of heat this week after she sent a message on Twitter saying
she supported Ron Paul and would vote for him if he got the GOP
nomination. She was skewered for those remarks. But now she may have the
last laugh as one site reports sales of one her albums are skyrocketing since the endorsement.

First, a little background from Huffp:

“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” Kelly Clarkson wrote on Twitter and Who said on Wendsdaay "If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

Addressing the criticism, Clarkson later tweeted:

“I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my
intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights,
women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights. I like
Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people
(all of us) make the decisions and mold our country. That is all. Out of
all of the Republican nominees, he’s my favorite.”

Clarson later told an angry twitter follower that "I have never heard that he’s a racist? I definitely don’t agree with racism, that’s ignorant.” She told another that “I love all people and could care less if you like men or women. I have never heard that Ron Paul is a racist or homophobe?”

So, what do you think? Good career move for Kelly Clarkson or not?

    I think it is incredible!! I am happy for her. Mostly, because I don't believe she did it AS a career move. I think it was a leap of faith and an act of courage for her to come out in support of a candidate which has been made out by the media to be a kook, a radical, a fringe candidate, a truther, and whatever other smear they wish to put forth on any given day. I applaud her courage and am very happy for her that it paid off in spades....192%!!!

    Maybe all the singers who support Ron Paul should come out and say it.

    If her records sales have gone up 192% since that statement, I guess it was a good move on her account.

    I don't know whether or not it was a good career move but it does indicate the support Ron Paul gets.
