The candidates' picks at a recent DNC Meeting :
John "Two Americas" Edwards: "This Is Our Country" by John Mellencamp. I did not know a multi-millionaire professional ambulance chaser could be so folksy. Refreshing!
Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut: "Get Ready (Cause Here I Come)" by the Temptations and "Reach Out," also by the Temptations. One of the whitest white boys in the senate, down with the homeys.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York: "Right Here, Right Now," by Jesus Jones and "Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" by Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Okay, the Jesus Jones song was about the Berlin wall coming down, thanks to the Gipper and his dangerous foreign policy. The B.T.O. song has been used in about 1/3 of all radio and T.V. ads ever made. Get original, Hitlery.
Representative Dennis Kucinich of Ohio: "America the Beautiful." From the man who brought you the Flaming Cuyahoga River.
Senator Barack Hussein "Mr. Clean" Obama of Illinois decided against using any music. Ooh, He's serious!
Is "We Are The World" such a bad song?
