What in the world is up with the McCain-Palin handlers; is anyone giving logical consideration to campaign songs? The senator should have called me to pull a “Zell” for him and watch his back. I see Hank Williams Jr. doing a McCain-Palin song to the tune of “Family Tradition ” (no comment) and I wonder if the Palins aren’t urban cowboys because anyone who has ever had a PBR at City Limit Bar in Tifton or Charlie B’s in Albany knows that the lyrics of Bocephus’s original tune glorifies alcoholism and substance abuse, and could turn off some conservatives. For the record, I love that song and PBR is Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Not to be out done, Obama-Biden will be coming out with “Vote Me, Baby” by Bell, Biv, DeVoe from battleground state Pennsylvania or “I love this Bar…Exam.”
Finally, thank you Hank Williams Sr. for “Hey Good Looking” which was my daddy’s favorite.
Family Tradition Hank Williams Jr.
So don’t ask me Hank
why do you drink?
(Hank) why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs you wrote?
Stop and think it over
Try and put yourself in my unique position
If I get stoned and sing all night long
It’s a family tradition!
UPDATE: There is a comment on fathers and memories so a little good grew out of this post. It is classic Pavlovian conditioning because when I heard that Hank Sr. song or smell Swisher Sweet cigars, I take the trash out..lol Like Daddy just came home from work, better get the chores done.
My daddy never missed voting (after he was allow to vote) so Pookie and Ray-Ray better vote for McCain, Obama, Barr or someone…up and down the ballot. Anyway, here’s my father’s other favorite tune. What was your father’s or mother’s song.
