Smear Campaign

Da Goddess @ 02:27

Rory Gallagher sang it best:

THE DIRTY TRICKS DEPARTMENT IS WORKING OVERTIME
TRYING TO STOP THE CANDIDATE FROM GETTING IN THIS TIME
THE WHEELS ARE NOW IN MOTION, ALL THE TRAPS ARE SET
UNDER THIS COMMOTION, WILL HE WALK INTO THIS MESS?
THE STATE’S INTOXICATED – THEY’RE AT THE STARTING GATE
HE MAY NEVER MAKE IT TO THE PLANNED T.V. DEBATE
HE CAN’T FIGHT OFF THE BIG BUCKS OF THE OLD BRIGADE
HE’S GOTTA WATCH HIS STEP IN THIS
SMEAR CAMPAIGN
THEY CALLED A SNAP ELECTION IN THE SUMMER HEAT
THIS TOWN IS REELING BACKWARDS
LIKE A DRUNK MAN ON THE STREET
FEED THOSE LIES
BEND THOSE MINDS AT ANY PRICE
FOUL OR FAIR
AS LONG AS HE’S NOT THERE
ELECTION TIME
DON’T BELIEVE THE PAPERS, IT’S NOT ANYBODY’S RACE
HE’S NOT A RANK BEGINNER, IT’S NOT A CHILDREN’S GAME
HE MAY GET THE NOMINATION, IF HE BREAKS THROUGH THE CHAIN
OR THEY’LL SHOOT HIM DOWN ON MAIN STREET IN THIS
SMEAR CAMPAIGN
JUST WATCH THE PARTY FAITHFUL FUEL THE DREAM MACHINE
THEY’VE FUDGED UP ALL THE ISSUES
EAT THAT SCANDAL SHEET
THE DIRTY TRICKS DEPARTMENT IS NEARLY HALF INSANE
TRYING TO STOP THE CANDIDATE WITH A
SMEAR CAMPAIGN

I hate the months leading up to election, don’t you?

  1. It does get old pretty quick.

  2. I was sick and tired of it a year ago. It’s only going to get worse the closer we get. Wishing we had a choice to skip political campaign ads.

    And this song? From the Defender album, 1987. Same ol’ song and dance. Even in Ireland.

  4. Hate that I get a shitload of probama ads only on Hulu, too. At least be balanced, knowwhatimean?
