All Politics Is Loco

I grew up in Michigan, and have always been proud of its rich and varied pop musical traditions:

Motown, of course. George Clinton. Iggy Pop. The White Stripes. Bob Seger. Del Shannon, Aaliyah, Was Not Was, Milt Jackson, Aretha Franklin (born in Memphis, but raised in Detroit), and on days when I'm feeling generous in my likes and dislikes, even Eminem.

Then, there are those Motor City Madmen you feel less happy about.

Ah, Ted, you Damn Yankee, you.

On the other hand, I was very pleased to discover that I wasn't the only one who thought Fred Thompson reminded him of Joe Don Baker.
