The relationship between Jersey yahoos and their hero Springsteen is always pretty funny due to his politics.

In 2004 I went to the Springsteen and friends MoveOn concert. There were two guys in front of me, obviously tremendous fans, belting out all the lyrics and air guitaring their way through every song. But it was obvious they'd made a deal that once Bruce started on the evil liberal politics stuff they'd protest. So at some point during the show Bruce made a very milquetoast nod to the politics and they folded their arms and turned their backs through the next song. Born to Run.
