That man didn't that thing's ass as much as he did the other thing.
I was going for a reference to the comment I made about the other video with this man in which he plays an autoharp. My comment was "That man just kicked that thing's ass."
It turns out that the price of trying to be a smart ass is failing.
So does he have access to a secret stash of convention-only inspiration songs or does he write these after the fact? I'm trying to figure out which is better.
He didn't write these; I'm not sure of their origins, but here are some places where they've been previously:
"Buckle Down for Nixon" is on Smithsonian Folkways' "Presidential Campaign Songs, 1789-1996":
"Jimmy Carter says Yes!" was on this awesome DVD about Song-Poems, which I'm going to watch tonight:
I once watched Brian Dewan get booed when he opened for They Might Be Giants
Whatever happened to custom candidate theme songs? I think that's a thing that should come back, along with beer at the voting booth.
