i feel glad when barry’s glad

Washington Post: Barry Manilow is setting the record straight: He’s an Obama guy for 2012, not a Ron Paul-ite.

In Tuesday’s roundup of how the Celebrity Primary is shaping up, we cited Manilow’s vocal enthusiasm for the libertarian Republican. “I agree with just about everything [Paul] says,” the crooner told the Daily Caller in a widely-circulated interview. (Of course, the Internet seems to widely circulate pretty much anything about Ron Paul.)

Manilow wrote us a pleasant note to clarify:

“Although I agree with some of what Ron Paul says, I am not actually endorsing him in the 2012 presidential race, nor have I ever told anyone that I was.” Seems that while Manilow made an eye-catching $2,300 contribution to the Texas congressman’s 2008 campaign, he also — like many showbiz colleagues — sprinkled cash equally on Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton during the primary, plus $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund. And he plans to vote for Obama next year. “He loves his president,” a rep said.

Thanks Hopefruit!
