I Couldn't Do It

I couldn't do it, I just couldn't bring myself to do it - watch Der Dear Leader's SOTU last night, that is. There was really no reason to watch. After listening to 7 years of mendacious shameless blathering from Dim Son and his toadies, what new was there to hear. Instead, I spent the evening listening to some old Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, and Lucinda Williams goodies, amid fantasies of hanging out at the Austin Outhouse in the 1980s. "If I Could Only Fly . . . "

Perhaps if Dim Son had spent a little more time listening to those good folks, smoking some Texas weed and letting up on the Jim Beam, we might not be in this pie-eyed mess today.
