The Eve of Destruction: Maybe the Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Back in the 1960's, there was a lot of self-righteous dickish music generated by the Left as "protest music."  Bob Dylan was one; here is Barry McGuire singing "The Eve of Destruction."

Theme music for the Apocalypse, maybe.  Except Death is riding on a pale pony riding machine at Wal-Mart.

Seriously, I am closely following the down-state Congressional election between Dean Young and Bradley Byrne.  Young represents the Tea Party faction; and Byrne is more usual Chamber of Commerce-supported Republican.  What makes it worse: Young is an admirer of former Chief Justice Roy Moore, one of the more sinister influences in Alabama politics.

This one I can't vote in; but I'm hoping for Bradley Byrne to win.  I once voted for him for Governor, but he lost.
