Well, whaddya know? Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is a lifelong Republican who opposes Obama. The Boston Herald reports:

Aerosmith has generally left the politics to bands like U2 and the Dixie Chicks, but axeman Joe Perry says national security and economic woes have prompted him to split from the rest of the entertainment world and throw his support behind John McCain.

“We pretty much stay out of it, but seeing so many people come out for Obama, I just felt like ‘What the hell, I might as well raise my hand for this side,” Perry said from his Duxbury home.

The Bay State rockers have done a few fund-raisers for the Kennedy family over the years, but Perry’s endorsement of McCain marks a first for the platinum-selling guitarist/songwriter.

…“I’ve been a hardcore Republican my whole life,” he told the Herald. “My mother and father drilled into me from the very start that if you work hard and be positive, you’ll get what you’re working for. I guess I’m living proof of that.”

…“I’m an optimist. It ain’t over till its over,” he said. “I think that he’s got a chance.”

Crank up your lunchtime video — the Guitar Hero version of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way:”

Guess you know what I want for Christmas!
