Hey! The Republican Stupidity Carnival is a block from my office!
I’d go over there, but there are no branes to be had. Many helicopters overhead though.
Also, the parking prices are surprisingly low, considering it’s also a Bucks game night, and Wicked is also in town. I would say you could probably soak those rich fucking right wing asshats a bit more, parking dudes! Although soaking the Bucks fans seems kind of like kicking them when they’re down…
So, I think an Elvis song is appropriate…
Also, because Gawd and Jeebus will be claimed at every pause tonight, here’s a bit of XTC:
And, just because I went on a Mekons tear recently and still haven’t come down, here’s a favorite song, Orpheus:
here’s the pertinent lyric:
I will teach them from my lesson
I will teach them from my song
I will speak of all lives wonder
Where I land will be renowned
Where I land will be the fortress
Of this fight against the tides
Tides of rotten patriarchy
Tides of greed and tricks and lies
Whoah, the condensed stupid is leaking out and running down the gutters…
