And all you have to do to join...

You have got to check out Michele Malkin's blog. She's all over the porkulus package; complete with accompanying songs.

And down at the bottom of the page who do I find but an old friend: Arlo. Now I know he rewrote Tom Paxton's "I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler" while Bush was still in office. But you know what? I don't give a rat's ass! This.......this my friends, is the theme song of the revolution! This thing needs to be played on every radio station in the land! It needs to be played on every car radio! It needs to be burned to CD and sent to every stinkin' Congress critter who voted for this abomination!

You know if they get one copy of this song they can pretty much ignore it. But if they get two copies......they may think they were sent by right wingers and they still might ignore it. But if they get three copies..........can you imagine your Congress critter getting three copies of this song? They may think it's an organization. And if they get 50 copies? If they get 50 copies they may think it's a movement. And that's what it is: the "I'm Changing My Name to Fannie Mae Movement". And all you have to do to join is make copies of this song and send it to your Congress critters.

With feelin'...

Friends and Neighbors we so need to do this. Thank God Arlo's still here when we need him.

  1. I love Arlo - the man's a universal constant.

    He can always be counted on to protest the gub'mint - any gub'mint you happen to have handy will do just fine.

    Or, you know - cops, if they ain't no other gub'mint handy.

    Really like the Motorcycle Song best.

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
