A Nation Turns Its Lonely Eyes

New Hampsha

(CBS News Graphic, January 9, 2011)
Sitting on a sofa on a [Tuesday] afternoon,
Going to the candidates' debate;
Laugh about it, shout about it,
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at it, you lose

Simon and Garfunkle (1968)


  1. Recently the Turner Classic Movies channel showed Frank Capra's movie State of the Union, a generation earlier than the Mrs. Robinson song - Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, the young Angela Lansbury - well worth watching

  2. Yes; the pre-Manchurian Candidate Angela was Teh Hot.
