Well, if Al Franken can run (and maybe win with the recount), why not Hank Williams, Jr.?
Country singer Hank Williams Jr. (R-TN) has allegedly “decided he will run for Senate in 2012,” after “consulting with” ex-Senate Maj. Leader Bill Frist and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN).
I’m a Republican and I live in Texas. Will my Texan Democrat friends continue their relentless mocking of my party, or will they think this is awesome? There may be some inner turmoil there.
Can a sitting senator still perform the theme song to Monday Night Football?
Will he run for president next?
So many questions.
This gives me an excuse to post a too-little-heard gem, “That Old Wheel” by Johnny Cash w/s/g Hank. Alex may recall that I used to play this on my old college radio show.
Unfortunately, the only video of this I can find has a bunch of pictures of Ron Paul stuff for some reason and I don’t feel like making a new one. No endorsement of Ron Paul implied. You’ll want to stop it at about 3:14 when the song is over and it switches to a Ron Paul speech, unless, of course, you’re super into Ron Paul. If you’re super into Ron Paul, you’re in for a double dose of awesomeness.
We aim to please here at On Deaf Ears.
Update: Link to video fixed. Sorry about that. Enjoy your Ron Paul!
