Music reviews...and spacejace does 'em well.
But it makes me think about creativity and politics....
What musicians does McLame have on his team? Hank Williams Jr.? John Rich? Lee Greenwood? (be nice, stop asking "Who?")
Williams' latest gem has a line containing the oh-so-poetic "This old union's got problems. That is plain to see. The Democrats bankrupted Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, just like 1-2-3. The bankers didn’t want to make all those bad loans. But Bill Clinton said "you got to!" Now they want to bail out. What I'm talking about, is a democrat liberal hoodoo!"
Well, you get the picture. I'll ignore the obvious (if you pay any attention at all) complete FRAKKIN' IDIOCY of these 'lyrics' and just say, poor old Hank needs a beer or six.
Does anyone think for a second that Hank Williams Jr. has any -- seriously, ANY -- cultural import/credibility/gravitas to convince anyone with more than seven brain cells to vote for McDoucheNozzle?
'Washed-up' seems to be the theme for the McLame campaign, from the senator on down to his supporters (all three of them) in the entertainment industry.
UPDATE: Oh, yeah. Remember who opened up the festivities at Obama's acceptance speech in Denver (you know, with 85,000 friends)? YONDER! (yes, do click on this link)
UPDATE 2: My bad. Jace's music review was a reprint. But still cool.
