In case you’re one of the four people in America who honestly can’t make up their mind between McCain, Hillary, and Obama, here is another factor to consider: campaign music. Marc Ambinder writes:
John McCain — As I type, the speakers are whispering an instrumental version of “God Bless America”. To warm up the crowd, his advance team mixes John Phillip Sousa marches (although not The Stars and Stripes Forever …) with John Williams fanfares. Before Navy audiences, they play Steve Smith’s Top Gun anthem and Kenny Loggins’ Highway To The Danger Zone.
I love that McCain plays “Highway to the Danger Zone.” It’s classic cheese (check out those olive-drab shades!). He may not know anything about the economy, but he certainly understands rock.
