get back, honky cat better get back to the woods

Ahh, Elton John always knew exactly how to put the rednecks in their place. This is I am sure exactly what rocker Tom Scholz was thinking when he fired off this letter to Mike Huckabee for stealing, yes stealing, "More than a Feeling" from the eternally young rock band BOSTON.

Do you Republicans get it yet? If it's good it does not belong to you! This follows last weeks letter fired off from John Mellencamp telling John McCain that "Our Country" was not his to use and add to that Ronald Reagan completely missing the point of "Born in the USA" and having The Boss himself issue a smackdown. Just assume that any songs that are cool or rocking are either made by people who don't agree with your politics or that the song is openly making fun of your politics or both.

Now for the public service part of my post:

Don't even try to touch the Eagles, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Crosby, Stills, Nash and ESPECIALLY YOUNG , OutKast, Dixie Chicks, Nelly, Kanye West, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, the late great Waylon Jennings, Dr. Ralph Stanley, any of the groups mentioned above and many many more (most of them to be honest). We have all those and you have Lee Greenwood, and Toby Keith, that's it, period.

So don't try and tell me country is Republican or Bluegrass is because it's not, the songs about the working man trying to make a buck never talk about tax cuts for the rich man or about making America less fair and don't even get me started on the free trade agreements, just look at a Merle Haggard song to see how he feels about the direction America is headed.

The only song the Republicans don't get is an old Carly Simon favorite "Your so vain, you probably think this song is about you"
