Heavy 2008 Obama supporter, artist Wyclef Jean, confesses that he is now a “huge fan” of former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin.
Wyclef explained why he supports Tea Party Republican Salin while talking to Women’s Wear Daily at a recent Donna Karan party.
“Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool," he said. "Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America…this is what America’s really about."
He said that he knows a lot of people will probably disagree with him (his wife included!), but that he has the right to like who he wants, never really stating anything in detail about what fascinates him so much about Sarah’s political stance. He did say, however, he likes her “maverick spirit and approach to politics.”
“Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job’,” said Wycelf, former presidential Haitian candidate. “I’m not saying she could be the next president, you know, but there’s something about her."
But if she does decide to run for the upcoming election, Wyclef has already made it clear that he might be on board for the “Palin for President” 2012 campaign.
