Bender Melon wrote this song during the 2004 election season mostly as a joke. I point it out every four years because I think it is kind of funny in it’s caricature of the egotism of presidential candidates. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one amused. This year it’s not so funny. Little did I know in 2004 that the character in the song would win the Republican nomination for President in 2016. The only difference this year is that instead of “homemade” “matching uniforms”, the nominee and his wife wear an elite tailored uniform costing more than the average annual income of a good number of people in this country. The rest is pretty much spot on. I expect should they win the office this year, the uniforms will be unzipped down the center and intergalactic lizard aliens will emerge announcing the takeover of the planet.

Sounding Stone moves into the 21st century with a WordPress powered blog.  Blosxom scripts served us well since 2003, but it’s time to move on.  We are aware that no one reads web logs anymore, not that anyone read this one in the first place, but we refuse to give free content to Facebook so they can force crap on you using their interpretation of your underwear drawer.

Don’t worry, the quality of the inanity posted shall not change.
