Lazy Weekend Music – Revenge Edition
Posted May 14, 2016on:
Good Saturday and weekend to you Widdershins!
So this weekend we won’t be able to relax so much and take it easy. Nah, that’s not gonna happen so much this weekend because sometimes the attacks never end or rest.
Mrs. Alan Greenspan was interviewing the crusty old bastard the other day. Bernie wanted to take a victory lap or two after his wins (?) in West Virginia and Indiana. I question the word “wins” because they essentially got about the same number of delegates. But Mrs. Greenspan was more interested in asking Sanders whether it was unfair to make Hillary have to fight on two fronts – one against him and one against Trump. Well this set off the c.o.b. to no end:
In every state that we have won, in 19 states, we have had to take on the entire Democratic establishment. We’ve had to take on senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress. That’s what we have taken on, so please do not moan to me about Hillary Clinton’s problems.
Uh no Bernie, you’re confused. You haven’t had to “take on” anyone. It’s just the fact that senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress have endorsed your primary opponent, not you, and that pisses you off. Welp…too bad and so sad. Deal with it.
Next, Charles Pierce of Esquire recently opined that maybe Clinton “isn’t the right candidate” to take on Drumpf. Pierce acknowledges that the W.Va win was a bunch of hoo ha.
I realize that the results last night in West Virginia will not mean very much down the road. They are products of skewed demographics and the playfulness of a number of voters who would not vote Democratic in the fall if you paid them in gold to do so.
Pierce calls Hillary a “plodder” in horsey terms. He feels she just doesn’t have the stuff to go up against a “rodeo clown”.
At the moment, I don’t see the Clinton campaign as being quick enough on its feet to do what it needs to do. (“Dangerous Donald”? Really?) Right now, it can’t put away Bernie Sanders, who is the most predictable candidate ever to stand in two shoes. Running as a serious candidate against a rodeo clown is always going to be a struggle.
I disagree with Pierce of course. He’s been a Bernie guy since the beginning. Hillary has tried to place nice as much as possible with Sanders because “we can’t alienate his supporters”…wah wah. She’ll have no such restrictions in the general against the rodeo clown.
So with that, let’s take a look at some songs of revenge by women. The songs may reflect revenge from a romantic breakup but they’ll suit our purposes just fine.
(1) Me and Mr. Jones – Amy Winehouse
(2) You’re So Vain – Carly Simon
(3) A Broken Wing – Martina McBride
(4) No Doubt – Sunday Morning
(5) Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Prolix’s favorite)
(6)Beyoncé – Irreplacable
Okay, so that’s some of my choices for songs concerning women who were scorned, not considered worthy or capable. What are some that come to mind for you? Please add them in the comments below.
