Again, Zappa

Via Hot Air, there is the Debbie Wasserman-Shultz at Real Clear Politics, desperately hoping to perform a modern miracle on the economy through repetition.

“Well, we’re going to focus on what we know is the number one priorities on Americans ease minds right now, that is creating jobs and continuing to get this economy turned around.

Once again, one is compelled to reach for the Zappa. Listening to this NSFW clip (couple of f-bombs and a sphincter reference) one is struck by the sharply prophetic portrait Zappa paints of Wasserman-Shultz. Did her image appear on his windshield while driving at night, or was that just a juicy insect?

More of the great DWS at American Glob.

    Stacy, as a fellow Zappa fan, I commend you for the choice!

    Did you watch the four segments of Zappa on the Steve Allen show? Hilarious.

    […] Smitty invokes Frank Zappa again to make a point about  the Democrats turning their attention to jobs…again. What’s this, the seventh time the Dems have decided to concentrate on jobs? […]

    I don’t know. If an image of Debbie Wasserman-Shultz had reflected on Zappa’s windshield while he was driving, he would have wretched and then become petrified – reverse Medusa-style- and skidded off the road into a fiery wreck, dying about 15 years before he did.

    One of my favorite Zappa quotes remains: “Communism will never work in America because people like to own stuff.”

    Another pertinent Zappa quote for DW-S: “Tosses her head n flips her hair
    She got a whole bunch of nothin in there”

    Debbie gets her economic news from the same people who tell her that her hair looks good every morning.
