Kerry Themes

K-Lo, why must the candidates also use lame mainstream artists like U2 or Springsteen? I would suggest the following themes for Kerry:

1. Since I think he looks like Son of Fred Gwynne, I nominate the theme from “The Munsters.”

2. Songs that express his sincere political beliefs about Vietnam being a pointless quagmire without a noble cause, like War (“Good God Y’all, what is good for? Absolutely nothing”) by Edwin Starr. Or maybe the “Fixin’ to Die Rag” by Country Joe and the Fish.

3. In honor of his devotion to the Widow Heinz, why not “Anticipation” by Carly Simon?

4. At least for tonight, he could have played “Kerry Me Back to Ol’ Virginny.”
