Lazy Weekend Music – Lying Edition
Posted October 8, 2016on:
Good Saturday and Weekend to you Widdershins!
Well that was certainly an interesting vice-presidential debate we had the other night. While Tim Kaine may have had a couple of exaggerations, Mike Pence just sat there calmly and lied his @ss off. To quote Mr. Pundit:
he can say shit that is just demonstrably wrong with an eerie calmness
You can go through the various times that Pence claimed that Trump didn’t say something that Trump absolutely said. It was as if Pence thought he could play a Jedi mind trick on the nation, waving his hand and saying, as he really did to Kaine, “Most of the stuff you’ve said, he’s never said.”
In a similar manner Charles Pierce said this about Pence’s performance:
But, at the very least, and this is the lowest bar possible for a vice-presidential candidate, Kaine at least demonstrated that he and his running mate are on the same page as regards most of the issues. By halfway through the debate, you began to wonder whether or not on Inauguration Day, Mike Pence would have to be introduced formally to the president-elect.
So with all of that let’s look at some songs about lies, lying and all the rest. It really does seem like we have to continue visiting the topic in this Presidential cycle doesn’t it?
(1) Living the Lie ~ Dio
(2) Little Lies ~ Fleetwood Mac
(3) Policy of Truth ~ Depeche Mode
(4) A Beautiful Lie ~ 30 Seconds to Mars
(5) Don’t Tell A Lie About Me & I Won’t Tell the Truth on You ~ James Brown
So there ya go Widdershins: variations on what seems to be a recurring theme during this campaign. Enjoy and contribute often in the comments below.
As for Fredster, he’s going to be busy today sticking pins into an effigy of the Florida Gator’s A.D. Jeremy Foley and wondering where he can get himself some good graveyard dirt and a live chicken.
Obviously, an open thread.
