Playing (to the) Bass

And Mike Huckabee played bass. No word on whether he was any good at it, but he probably was. Any idiot can play bass.

Judge for yourself: a home-made Pop-Up Video of Capitol Offense, courtesy of C-Span. (Pop-Up text has not been verified for accuracy, and at least some of it is most certainly Completely Made Up.) Also notice the governor is not playing just any bass, but a Tobias Growler.

Bitchin'.



Ordinarily I would have put this fluff in a comment, but our comments section, being Not As Smart as Fred Thompson, wouldn't allow anything as elaborate as an embedded YouTube video.

Fredophiles are already pointing out that we didn't do too badly the last time we elected an actor as president; Huckabee seems like a nice fellow and I hope he doesn't suffer from reflections on what we got the last time we elected a governor of Arkansas with a musical instrument on a neckstrap.
Thinking of running for president, or at least governor of Arkansas...

Judging from the audio, Capitol Offense has an opening for a lead singer.

That's Tom "Binsey" Van Dyke on bass and lead vocals with The Cookies.

I think you should offer to fill in for Dave Meros; and then the band would be called "Spock's Van Dyke Beard."

Tom Van Dyke said...

And check out who's Spock's Beard's lead singer.

Yup.

Look at Binsey! I see your profile says you sound like Coldplay (that must be a default setting), Kinks, The Clash, etc. - but my money's on you guys doing a kickass 21st Century Steely Dan.

Rock on, brother.

Just in case the aforementioned comments lead to a storm of Newswalker name Googling to see if any of the rest of us are famous celebrities: the Kathy Hutchins named in this unintentionally hilarous article about a bunch of rich people behaving like idiots in New Hampshire IS NOT ME.
