At the Virginia Republican Convention today in Richmond, Republican Nominee for Governor Bob McDonnell was introduced with a Creedence Clearwater Revival song — “Up Around the Bend“.
Didn’t someone check the lyrics of this catchy tune?
There’s a place up ahead and I’m goin’ just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you’re goin’, leave the sinkin’ ship behind.
Maybe that’s why McDonnell doesn’t tell anyone he’s a Republican in his television ads. Republicans are already griping he didn’t mention gay marriage in his speech and only mentioned abortion once. I think McDonnell knows the GOP is a “sinkin’ ship”.
So my question is, will Captain McDonnell simply rearrange the deck chairs or is he throwing away his right wing baggage in an attempt to win over Democrats and independents?
And for you right wing nut jobs who read my blog — did you know Creedence Clearwater Revival performed at WOODSTOCK?
I wonder how the crowd in Richmond would have reacted to this CCR classic? With or without these images? Perhaps a better choice? Hmmm.
