Wasting away again in Margeritaville

Searching for my lost shaker of salt

Oh my! A musician that has an opinion. I am shocked!

You knew he had to get Dixie Chicked by the kind of cowards at the FOX propaganda arm of the GOP that are quite willing to worship the musicians that will poop their pants to get out of war if they are right wingnuts:

Considering the amount of air time that Fox News Channel gives to such A-list talent like Ted Nugent to wax political, you'd think they wouldn't necessarily be surprised to find out that performers, like many Americans, have opinions and occasionally like to express them.

Buffett's anger and rage has focused on the crony capitalism and de-regulation so rampant and institutionalized during the Bush administration:

Buffett, a supporter of President Barack Obama, said the roots of the spill lie with the administration of former President George Bush, which was often criticized for being too cozy with the petroleum industry.

"To me it was more about eight years of bad policy before (Obama) got there that let this happen. It was Dracula running the blood bank in terms of oil and leases," he said. "I think that has more to do with it than how the president reacted to it."

That, of course, is a simply OUTRAGEOUS statement to the brain-trust that is Fox & Friends.

It would be wrong to tempt Parrotheads with a post title like that and not leave them with a little Buffet music so here is a bit of his recent performance in Alabama to support the Gulf region:

Thousands of people sang and danced in Alabama at a free Jimmy Buffett concert meant to help the Gulf Coast. The state's governor says Alabama might use its $15 million in tourism promotion money from BP to stage more shows through the fall.

I am tempted to toss one of the Piña Coladas Margeritas at FOX news... But they taste too good to waste on their petty wankery.

from an old parrothead. :)

And I don't know why I titled it with a Garth Brooks song... I have both songs on CDs. I really only started listening to both Brooks and Buffet when I was in the army. Guaranteed their drinking songs would be on the jukebox or the CD player eventually at almost every party. lol
