Please Be Patient with Me

Any Colbert Report fans should check out tomorrow’s broadcast as Wilco will be performing! I can’t wait for their Peabody Award winning election coverage next Tuesday!

Wilco & Billy Bragg recorded a Woody Guthrie song called “Christ for President” (lyrics below) on their album, Mermaid Avenue. I would love to see Wilco perform that Thursday night, but they’ll probably pander to the Pro-Obama crowd . . .

“Christ for President”

Let's have Christ our President
Let us have him for our king
Cast your vote for the Carpenter
That you call the Nazarene

The only way we can ever beat
These crooked politician men
Is to run the money changers out of the temple
Put the Carpenter in

Oh It's Jesus Christ our President
God above our king
With a job and a pension for young and old
We will make hallelujah ring

Every year we waste enough
To feed the ones who starve
We build our civilization up
And we shoot it down with wars

But with the Carpenter on the seat
Way up in the Capital town
The USA would be on the way
Prosperity Bound!

PS – In case any of you (three?) readers are confused on who I am voting for . . .

McCain-Palin all the way!!
