This number is a bit dated, but it’s uncanny how well it has aged. The names of the politicians mentioned are a tip off, but by judicious substitution with contemporary characters it is surprisingly (sadly) still topical. The body politic successfully dodged the bullet on the occasion of the introduction of this song. We were not so lucky this last presidential election and we must now deal with the aftermath.
Roy is still around and as funny as ever. His latest song skewers Sen. Chuck Grassley for his recent remarks on booze, women and movies. Go Roy!
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
Feel free to suggest videos at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks Doug, he is so creative and funny and yes, still pertinent. It’s amazing how he can turn a bad situation into a laughable one.
