He's Still Alive?

I, kind of, did a double-take, when I saw this headline the other day;

Andy Williams accuses Barack Obama of following Marxist theory

WOW!, I thought, Andy Williams is still alive.

I mean, this is the guy that had to be the inspiration for Muzak.

I can remember, even in my youth, during that time of year, when his Christmas Specials would come on, thinking of the untold hundreds-of-thousand diabetics who must be going into shock, hospital emergency rooms flooded, perhaps getting a double whammy, if they had the program on the television in the waiting rooms.

Man, he milked "Moon River" so much, it must be silted by now.

This is what this elderly Flying Monkey has to offer the political discourse;

Williams, a lifelong Republican whose hits include Moon River and Music To Watch Girls By, told the Radio Times he thought Mr Obama wanted to turn the US into a "socialist country".


"Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing. One is registered as a Communist.

"Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail."
We assume the interview was lengthy, with Mr. Williams having to stop and work the drool cup.

Michael Stickings, over on The Reaction, called him "Craziest Conservative of the Day."

That about covers it.
