How fucked up is Bascom Hill?

The experience inspired me to write down this song: (to the tune of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock")

I came upon a child of Obam-a
She was walking by Sterling Hall
So I asked her, "Where are you going?"
And this she told me...

"I'm going up to Bascom Mall,
I'm gonna join in a political rally
Gonna put out my two hands
Try and keep my birth control free.

We are starstruck
We're beholden
And we've got to keep ourselves in government lardon."

Then can I walk beside you?
I have come here to dialogue,
And with Flip cam, I feel like Herzog,
Artistically burning.

Well maybe it's just not our year,
And maybe, well, Yes We Can
But Tammy B and Mark Pocan
Have my stomach churning.

We are starstruck
We're beholden
And we've got to keep ourselves in government lardon.

By the time we got to Bascom,
We were thirty thousand strong
Everywhere you looked - career politicians.

And I dreamed I saw drone bombers
Chooming roof hits in the sky,
Turning into Obama Pies
O'er Bascom Nation

We are starstruck
We're beholden
And we've got to keep ourselves in government lardon.

I dunno, Ducatista. It's a never ending source of amusement to me that Meade routinely references, quotes and parodies songs which reflect principles and beliefs which he personally betrays daily. Good show!

(I don't actually think his lyrics are funny, mind you. I think it's funny that he can write them and still call other people tools.)

But, are the trees still the right height?

Republican angst over trampling of some Eurasian grass species is really some misplaced concern over the environment.

Did you hear that Mike Huebsch estimated the crowd size to be about 7,500?

Maybe he thinks Dems only count as three-fifths of a person. Even so, he is still low balling it.

Thanks Ned.

Ducatista - you mean the political speeches, right? I agree.

This is national news?

So let me get this straight, a presidential candidate shouldn't campaign in your city if you're not going to vote for him/her? That's so stupid! Who comes up with these idiotic topics?

How fucked up is Bascom Hill? I don't know, pretty tame by rock and roll standards. I wouldn't say fucked up at all.
