(Newser) – Don't expect Cher to sing a duet with Ted Nugent any time soon. If Mitt Romney "gets elected I don't know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women-Hating Tea Bagger Masters," she wrote in one of several tweets yesterday that were later deleted, E! Online reports. "They care nothing about the POOR The OLD The SICK The HUNGRY CHILDREN & People striving 4 a Better Life." Told by a fellow Twitter user that her remarks probably cost her half her fans, she responded: "Thank God I Got the half that thinks!"
