In honor of the Quincy Massacre, where four Teabagger Grannies had their feelings hurt by being asked to step out of the street back onto the sidewalk so that Obama's motorcade could drive by:


-- Badtux the Musical Penguin

Note: This is the microphone and webcam on my Macbook, along with the iMovie software that shipped with it. No professional recording gear or software was involved in the recording of this video. Also, I'm usually a flatpicker, not a fingerpicker. But this song wanted to be fingerpicked, so I did my best, given that I'd never played Neil Young's "Ohio" before...


  1. Next time let me do the singing..;)
    No really good stuff and can I borrow it. BTW I just picked up a used EPI

  2. Heh. Yeah, I never claimed to be a singer ;).

    Feel free to borrow. I'm interested to see what it sounds like when sung and played by a *real* musician, heh.

  3. Love it!

    We have a lot of nutjobs in Illinois!


  4. I thought the music was nice, but I never claimed to be a music critic. ;)

    I thought the video with the "riot Police" and the teabaggers was very strange anyway. The police made me think of modern keystone cops or a bunch of those windup wobbly toys trying to march together.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
