Boy, what a week it has been.
So much for the lazy, hazy days of summer ...
Things have been jumping, with both campaigns ...
Obama turned into "Obushama", with his FISA Flip-Flop, and, going all Leni Riefenstahl for his nomination acceptance speech.
And McCain ... Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain....
I think, for safety, with all the stumblin' and bumblin' he did this week (take your pick - Killing Iranians, dissing Social Security, distorting his voting record and, of course, labeling all of us "whiners"), McCain's going to have campaign the rest of the way wearing a helmet (and, perhaps, elbow and knee pads).
And with all this laying out there, I am taking the day off.
It's been a week on the homefront as well, and have run out-of-gas today.
So rather then throwing something half-hearted up, I will leave you a most wonderful offering.
The seminal Jazz Fusion group, who have yet to be surpassed or dethroned.
And we present a most relevantly-titled tune, considering the above-referenced gaffes;
A Remark You Made (circa 1978, from a concert at Offenback, Germany), with Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Peter Erskine and Jaco Pastorius (and check out the licks by Jaco ...Out-of-Sight!).
Killer tune, and one of my all-time favorites.
