Normally I work hard at avoiding reading or participating in blog memes, but this one was pretty funny:
1. Take out your iPod (or Zune, I guess…really, who buys a Zune?)
2. Press shuffle songs.
3. Answer the following: a) How many songs before you come to one that would absolutely disqualify you from being President? b) What is that song?
First up on iTunes for me was Bob Dylan’s “On the Road Again,” which is probably no longer controversial enough to be scandalous. At #3 was “Wishful Thinking” by the Ditty Bops. Lesbian pop might cost me the GOP nomination, but wouldn’t kill overall Presidential ambitions, I’m guessing. #6 was “Californication” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but still seems like not enough to cost me Ohio in the general election. #12 was “God Smack” by Alice in Chains, which I suspect would nail me for good. If there was any support left #34 was Roger Waters’ “Too Much Rope,” which would definitely finish me.
