Hillary needs a song

YouTube's been putting up short videos from each of the candidates, and, let me tell you, as a politically-interested blogger and YouTuber, I have found these videos to be insanely boring. So imagine my surprise to find that Hillary's, was, well, cute.

You can't say that the woman doesn't know how to play to an audience.

But her list of songs is completely lame. All of them are that sort of "so non-offensive that no one could possibly listen to this" kind of music. I mean, Smash Mouth's cover of "I'm a Believer"? Seriously? You can vote here. I wrote in "We Need a Revolution" by Dead Prez. Let's see if that wins.

I have a post set to go up tomorrow about this as well. At first I was going to cancel it but we approach it in different ways so I am going to let it post.

I hope she doesn't take your advice on a song. Dead Prez = Middle America = probably not.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought her song choices were well "lame". My song suggestion was "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" (i.e. GW)

*grins* I chose "The Bitch is Back." I think it'd be perfect. America only wants to accept the "strong woman" type as a leader, so let them think she's a bitch if they need to. And she'd definitely be "back."

From their choices? "Suddenly I See" by KT Tunstall - definitely. Although U2's "Beautiful Day" was a close second.

My suggestion is the song "I'm Just A Sweet Transvestite From Transsexual Transylvania" that was Tim Curry's first number in the old cult movie "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

And Hillary's pants-suits, at the same time, might take on a subtle dominatrix theme. If that doesn't generate some buzz, nothing will ...

Classical music always works.

Give peace a chance. J. Lennon.

I sent this to all my friends and relatives. This is important stuff!!!!
