Hurricane Irene, Good Luck Back, and the new CTGOP Theme Song

Hurricane Irene is a Cat 2 Storm.
Be safe and be prepared!
With everyone focused on Hurricane Irene, I don't want to get into a serious political discussion this week.  The King urges everyone in the Realm to take precautions, and protect your loved ones from this dangerous storm. Assume nothing!  Make sure you have ample non-perishable food, water, ice, batteries, flashlights, and candles.  Make sure to tie up lawn furniture and anything else that can be turned into a projectile by 115 mph winds.  And don't forget about your pets - make sure they have enough food, and water.  The King has a soft heart for pets; there was nothing worse that reading the many stories about abandoned pets during Hurricane Katrina.  If you're creating an evacuation plan, make sure you take into account our furry friends.

At this point I want to put in a little plug for the upcoming Good Luck Back fundraiser scheduled for Friday, September 23 from 7pm - 11pm at the Blue Fox Run Golf Club, 65 Nod Road, Avon, Connecticut.  For contact information and to make reservations by clicking here.  The event is expected to be a great time with plenty of music, food and drinks.  It's a good opportunity for Connecticut Republicans to put aside their petty differences and come together and heal old wounds.  All proceeds will go to keeping the CTGOP a viable resource for Republicans, including advancing our positive agenda for Connecticut through election support, and issue management.  By supporting this event, you'll be playing a critical role in building Party unity and strengthening our ability to fight the Democrats ongoing assault on Connecticut families and businesses.

Meantime, to lighten the load with a little humor, I've gone back in the vault and found the perfect theme song (and video) for the CTGOP in it's current state. I'm hoping that Chairman Labriola might incorporate this song into his band's repertoire for the upcoming fundraiser.  See if you are sharp enough to pick out all the visual and verbal references to our current situation (and yes that's our own Chairman Jerry running in the small box in the lower right-hand part of the screen). 

The opening lyrics go like this:

Well we know where we're goin'
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowin'
But we can't say what we've seen

And we're not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out

Road to Nowhere by Talking Heads

Hopefully a few of you saw the humor in this.  If not, then some of you aught to get out of politics before you have a heart attack, and die. "Give us time to work it out".

Have a safe weekend and a great week ahead!

What does "Good Luck Back" mean?

One of my favorites; the Talking Heads. On a road to nowhere. Perhaps there will be hope for a more conservative, constitutional R in CT. Hopey Changey sort of thing, you know?
