Someone Wonderful: Scott Brown. Keep on Truckin'

If you're in Massachusetts and you've got a vote coming, go get it. Here's some traveling music.

Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street.
Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street.
Your typical city involved in a typical daydream
Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings.

Dallas, got a soft machine; Houston, too close to New Orleans;
Boston's got Scott Brown and beans; vote or it won't let you be, oh no.

Great musical metaphor for today, Gerard. He should hire you a his campaign manager - or did he already? I just hope that by the time he becomes President, our own Brown Prime Minister is, to use the cockney rhyming vernacular - brown bread! Politically that is, we don't want any ungrateful dead messing with the Grateful Dead. What a track - had forgotten it. Thanks.

That was the best campaign ad ever. Made me want to watch it again and again. The incompetition just keeps writing his material for him.

I'm going with Ray Manzarek's hypnotic threnody and Jim's mournful warning..."This is The End, you feckless pol, the end, placeholder's gone, the end..."

I'd love to have worked the 'lost in a Roman wilderness of pain' line in there, too, but wanted to keep it brief...

...we're talking catastrophic blowout of the coakley machine though, campers...

May your last line be the truest you ever wrote. The peepul fight back! I'm still not convinced, though: won't be until the gerrymandering/skulduggery is over. As it affects us almost as much as it affects you, can I have a postal vote please? If Scott Brown can break off the thin edge of the wedge of Gramsci-socialism that is being rammed into the very heart of Western democracy and freedom, he will deserve a Purple Heart, not to mention an honorary Knighthood from QEII for extraordinary service to Great Britain (even though it no longer exists except in the hearts and memories of a dying generation and its erstwhile allies).
