Editor's note: a fairly interesting political backwash of clips of speeches, commentary and opinion. "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss". Precisely! Imagine that people can repeatedly and forever told the same lies and believe them. Then again, you believe your woman when she says you have the biggest package since the Maytag wash machine and your kids when they say "Dad, you're the best." Lies are necessary or people become too glum with the reality that this is a breeder's planet and not a platform or entry into next-world redemption.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
