Nothing like a near-lethal dose of cynicism & jazz...........

From lying to wobbles to maybes to vagabonds to castles to ourates to dummies to fate & weakness....it's a political smorgasbord!

Especially appreciate the opening historical audio....I've collected hundreds of clips and love hearing living history via the spoken word.

Great show, Andy!

Nick,

I'm glad you liked this one.

I think it turned out a little more "balanced" than advertised--I promise to do better next time.

It was still mostly unfair, though.

Andy.....

"Balanced" in music presentation is like "objective" in news reporting.....a cute, unachievable concept. However, I thought you presented quite a few viewpoints beautifully.

I guess that makes you an anarchist....with excellent taste.

Nick,

I think you're right--but at least they haven't used "anarchist" as an epithet this year. I own up to the characterization, but I do feel some relief this week, for some reason.

I think we all feel some relief this week, Andy.....

Maybe we should limit campaigns to the calendar year the election is held in???

Still.....an excellent show!
