It doesn't help to have people continuing to shovel dirt back into the hole when the candidate keeps digging. I can't see them as looking like anything but desperate right now.

Rush did this soliloquy about betrayal on Thursday that was actually quite moving. He was trying to sort through how the early Romney campaign was presented to conservatives and how now the same people who had reassured Rush that only Romney could beat Obama were now abandoning him in droves. Rush turned to an episode of shrinking penises for his Friday show which I guess could be seen as a symbolic reflection of what the future holds for the GOB and the right.

The signs for Romney are ominous.

Nate Silver’s model predicts that if the election were held today Romney would only have a 5% chance of winning.

The GOP is afraid they may lose the House. The Senate looks like it will stay Democrat. Nevertheless resources need to be moved to support candidates in trouble and this leaves Romney with less money. The announcements are that Romney didn’t raise as much money as announced earlier and portions of it need to stay with the party. Romney’s Super Pac’s also don’t have as much money. It’s clear that they’re not going to further support Romney.

Romney has no way to turn the race to his advantage. There is still Bain, his tax releases, the 47%, the lack of specificity in his economic plan, his alien personality etc. that have never been adequately negated or clarified. Even the right doesn’t know what to make of him. He gave a speech aligning himself with Obamacare again and then claimed it was a joke. The speech was to a Latino crowd he was wooing. Now they have to hear what he told them was likely a joke. That was a waste of a day. How to waste more time is a daily ritual for Romney.

Anyone else notice that Romney darkened his face before he spoke to the Latinos? I don't need to wonder if he thought they were too dumb to notice that his hands and ears were still white...obviously he did. I must say, that one was a new one to me...and a new low.

I doubt that the GOP will loose the house. These days, it doesn't seem to matter who has the senate. Unless you have 60 member supermajority, everything will get fillibustered and nothing will happen anyway.

On a completely different note I totally agree with this. I said it when the Republicans were in the majority and I say it with the Democrats in the majority. It is being abused and is abusing the Constitution which did not foresee the need for a super majority to pass ordinary legislation.

I acknowledge your picture change in another thread but I want to add that it's nice to see Allen there with Warren.

This is my favorite picture from the remarkable "Another One For Woody" show at the Roseland Ballroom in November 2010. At this moment the Allman Brothers had left the stage around 2:00 A.M. and Warren came out with Berry Duane Oakley and played Wish You Were Here with Pictures of Woody in the background. It was an incredible moment, particularly when the crowd sang the entire first verse.

Wow....I had never heard about this. I was a bit moved just reading it.

I thought of Woody last night as I watched Deep Purple perform back in 2006 at the Montreux Jazz festival on the AXS channel. I thought of him of course because of the Roger Glover connection to the "Deep End" project and because it appeared as though Steve Morse was wearing a t-shirt with the Gov't Mule Dose emblem on it. Strange I suppose but watching Roger lay down some tasty grooves just made Woody pop into my head.

Saw an article about a week ago where Warren tells the story behind the naming of Gov't Mule. I had never heard it before, and thought it was great (way better than the common belief that is was some kind of political statement):

About that name

Haynes tells it this way. In 1994 they were on tour and looking for the right name for their band. James Brown was playing a show in a town they'd played the night before, so a couple guys stuck around to watch the Hardest Working Man in Show Business work that crowd.

During the show Brown was dancing with his wife and the guys noticed she was so generously endowed that she'd never have to worry about seat cushions, pointing out that she was endowed “like a government mule.”

“We need to name our band after James Brown's wife big ass,” they told Haynes.

So they did.

Haynes says he can now tell the story because she died on the operating table during cosmetic surgery not long after that, and the Godfather of Soul has been gone for a few years now.

“The ironic thing is that James Brown is one of my heroes,” Haynes said.

The internal momentum for the GOP is shifting daily. On Friday it was pretty low. But by Sunday it seemed that they were going to get behind Romney again. Then on 60 minutes Romney said that he thought the uninsured could just go to emergency rooms. This clip is going to hurt him.

The odds are long that the Democrats take the House but they are the same as Romney winning the presidency.

To me the big unpredicatable is the behavior of the GOP as they were so confident they would beat Obama. A lot can happen if they really hit the panic mode.

Here in Maine, the GOP and the SuperPacs are spending big on attack-style ads for the senate race for Olympia Snowe's seat. There are have been at least 4 seperate state-wide TV campaigns going back into the summer (including one that I just started seeing) that have been funded directly by the GOP and/or conservative superpacs. One ad campaign was even a "pro" message about the democrat, in a transparant attempt to split the vote between her and independent candidate (and race leader) Angus King, a former 2-term Maine governor. To this point, none of ad campaigns by the GOP or it's surrogates have even mentioned the GOP candidate by name even once.

It was the greatest single show I have ever attended. It started with a three song acoustic set from Warren, Kevin Kinney and Edwin McCain. Then the North Mississippi All-Stars played a short set. Then a full set from Gov't Mule.Then a full set from the Allman Brothers. Then the finale of Wish You Were Here.

5 hours of music. Another highlight was when Savannah Woody came out during the Mule set and sang Soulshine with Warren. Sorry to hijack this political thread with music talk.

By all means, hijack away Doug. Sounds like an incredible night of music. Something such as this would make for a great DVD. It'd be on my must have list and would have been a nice fund raiser for Woody's family.

The entire show was a fundraiser. I'm not sure the cause. I agree about the DVD. Other highlights included guests who have played with Woody over the years such as Artemis Pyle, Hook Herrera and many many others.

I would also put this up as one of the best nights of music I have ever experienced!!!

The North Mississippi Allstars playing of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Whiskey Rock A Roller' with Artimus Pyle playing drums was another highlight from that incredible show!

I assume you and Doug debated the status of the Obama presidency after the show, Sixty? In between your discussing the evenings stellar music, correct? All kidding aside, what a great DVD this show would make........And the behind the scenes extras could include you and Doug debating tax policy....kidding of course.

I think the quote of "government mule" has been attributed to Jaimoe.

5 hours of music. Another highlight was when Savannah Woody came out during the Mule set and sang Soulshine with Warren. Sorry to hijack this political thread with music talk.


By all means, hijack away Doug. Sounds like an incredible night of music. Something such as this would make for a great DVD. It'd be on my must have list and would have been a nice fund raiser for Woody's family.



I would also put this up as one of the best nights of music I have ever experienced!!!


I assume you and Doug debated the status of the Obama presidency after the show, Sixty? In between your discussing the evenings stellar music, correct? All kidding aside, what a great DVD this show would make........And the behind the scenes extras could include you and Doug debating tax policy....kidding of course.

Pete and I never discuss political issues anywhere except this forum.

This is my favorite picture from the remarkable "Another One For Woody" show at the Roseland Ballroom in November 2010. At this moment the Allman Brothers had left the stage around 2:00 A.M. and Warren came out with Berry Duane Oakley and played Wish You Were Here with Pictures of Woody in the background. It was an incredible moment, particularly when the crowd sang the entire first verse.


Wow....I had never heard about this. I was a bit moved just reading it.

I thought of Woody last night as I watched Deep Purple perform back in 2006 at the Montreux Jazz festival on the AXS channel. I thought of him of course because of the Roger Glover connection to the "Deep End" project and because it appeared as though Steve Morse was wearing a t-shirt with the Gov't Mule Dose emblem on it. Strange I suppose but watching Roger lay down some tasty grooves just made Woody pop into my head.


Saw an article about a week ago where Warren tells the story behind the naming of Gov't Mule. I had never heard it before, and thought it was great (way better than the common belief that is was some kind of political statement):

About that name

Haynes tells it this way. In 1994 they were on tour and looking for the right name for their band. James Brown was playing a show in a town they'd played the night before, so a couple guys stuck around to watch the Hardest Working Man in Show Business work that crowd.

During the show Brown was dancing with his wife and the guys noticed she was so generously endowed that she'd never have to worry about seat cushions, pointing out that she was endowed “like a government mule.”

“We need to name our band after James Brown's wife big ass,” they told Haynes.

So they did.

Haynes says he can now tell the story because she died on the operating table during cosmetic surgery not long after that, and the Godfather of Soul has been gone for a few years now.

“The ironic thing is that James Brown is one of my heroes,” Haynes said.

Sorry for the thread hijack, but this is more interesting anyway, isn't it?


I think the quote of "government mule" has been attributed to Jaimoe.


The story which has been told by the three of them is that Jaimoe said "Man her ass is as wide as a government mule."

Good stuff Doug with regard to the Another One for Woody. I was in the house that night too and found that part quite moving. When Svannah Woody took the stage to sing Soulshine with Warren, the hair on my arm stood up. Bittersweet to say the least.

Heading to Love for Levon next week and I expect some similar moments.

Why don't we ever meet when we are always at the same shows?

I have hung out with Doug at many shows, have broken bread with him on several occasions and have even shared the rail with him for a show and we have never once uttered a single word about anything politics EVER!!! I do not get into politics outside of the internet. I get all of that out here and on Facebook. It is too devisive and always leads to arguments which I don't need outside of here. I prefer to keep it to music and whatever else is going on when hanging out at a show or anywhere else. I had actually asked Doug about you on the second day of Mountain Jam since I knew you were at the same hotel. One of these years we will finally get to meet.

That's good, Sixty. And I assumed as much which is why my post was in jest. I'm the same, by the way. I try to never mix music and politics. I'm hard to miss as I'm the burly, old bald guy in the room closest to the office at Mt. View. Although next year I may be in a different room as I'm told by Sue, the owner, that they're renovating my usual room and making it part of their office space.
