10-28-08 Harry McClintock performed by Lew Dite – The Great American Bum

Posted by Sean on October 28, 2008

Well, Shanoah, if you’re gonna put up a song for Barack Obama, then I’ll just have to put up something for John McCain! Yes, it’s all part of our trademarked Unfair and Unbalanced (as in “Rush Limbaugh on a Whiskey, Crack and Oxycontin Binge Unbalanced”) coverage.

Well now, lessee here. If Obama is peddling “socialism”, then McCain must be peddling good old fashioned cutthroat American capitalism, right? You know, the kind of cutthroat capitalism that worked so well for the United States and the rest of the world in 1929? In other words, if McCain’s elected president, you might want to learn a few bum songs from Harry McClintock – you know, to while away the time while you’re riding the rails and waiting for the railroad dick to beat you up.

Come to think of it, you’d better bone up on your Depression-era songs no matter who’s elected president…

This is Montreal’s Lew Dite performing McClintock’s The Great American Bum.
