Bachmann Product

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on June 30, 2011

There was a headline at JoemyG-d…”Tom Petty To Crazy Eyes: Stop Using My Song At Your Campaign Stops.” Apparently a certain shameless politician was using a TP tune as a theme song.

Before reading the article, PG had to guess which song it was. The first guess was “Refugee”. Michele Marie Bachmann as a refugee, hounded out of her home by the liberal media. Youtube has a list of TP tunes…”Free Fallin'”, “Mary Jane’s last dance”, “You got lucky”, “American Girl”… these would all be good theme songs for this ambitious lady. Maybe she likes the fact that Tom Petty, and Tea Party, have the same initials as toilet paper. (The winner is “American Girl”)

Maybe it is time for a true confession. PG has never really liked the corporate pablum of Tom Petty. Those MTV videos from thirty years ago,(with the cocaine enhanced performer stumbling to the microphone to gargle lyrics about getting lucky) made an impression. Years of classic rock radio has not made things any better. Maybe being the darling of the Tea Party would be a good career move.

PG has limited experience with campaign rallies. In February of 1992, he saw Bill Clinton at the CNN center. The space used to be empty air over the railroad tracks, and resembled it on that cold morning. The theme song of the campaign, at that time, was “Twist and Shout” by the Beatles. In hindsight, that would be a good song for his administration.

Last summer, Sarah Palin made Karen Handel look charisma challenged. The theme song of the Handel campaign was “We’re not going to take it” by Twisted Sister. The chamblee54 report was titled “The twisted sisters”. There was no word from the band about a Georgia political campaign. They did, however, want to know what kind of hairspray Sarah Palin recommends.
