Westerberg Concedes

By 02.Jun.08June 14th, 200820 Comments

ASSOCIATED PRESS – In an unexpected move, Paul Westerberg has announced that he is dropping out of the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination. At least one newspaper will have to issue a retraction after printing that Westerberg had the nomination in hand. The candidate will encourage his delegates to support Tom Zarek. Reached for comment, Westerberg’s spokesman Kenny Rogers said, “You gotta know when to fold ’em.”

    Now if Hillary would just do the same so my man Obama could get on with it already.

  • Some Guy says:

    There’s still the possibility of an Obama/Westerberg ticket though.

  • Jodi says:

    I’d vote Obama/Westerberg in 08. Who the hell wouldn’t. Obama should change his campaign song to “I Will Dare”

  • Evan says:

    how do we even know he’s democrat(I hope he is) and I would vote for him/obama

  • jaytaco says:

    isnt everybody a democrat after the last 8 years? hehehe.

  • ih8music says:

    i have a strange feeling that he’s either a libertarian or a conservative-leaning independent. nothing specific i can point to to justify the feeling… it’s just there.

  • ih8music says:

    … i definitely don’t see him as someone to wear the Democrat or Republican badge, so to speak…

  • Jimdracula says:

    Staunch independent w/ fuck you all leanings.

  • pzp says:

    Evan: “how do we even know he’s democrat?”

    dang, yer right.

  • Evan says:

    I agree with jimdracula

  • Wilfie says:

    As an Englishman its hard to understand how American politics works but from what i know if you guys voted an ahole like Regan and the 2 shrubs (wont call them Bushes, they aint big enough) then anything is possible. At least if Paul got in, he’s got a great wife to support him (he is married to LL isn’t he?) Sorry, am a newbie with PW, just love his stuff but dont know masses about him.

    Here is a brief article on Laurie Lindeen’s most recent book reading in Washington.

    It’s here this second, expect this comment to be deleted in 3…2…1…

  • Jimdracula says:

    This article sums up Lindeen’s problems w/ three quintessential questions: “Did you graduate from college?” “What do you do now?” & “So…how’d you meet Paul?” Shit, I would stop taking questions.

  • Wilfie says:

    Well, that’s not very nice is it? I mean the poor girl put her heart and soul into the book by the sound of it and okay, she is married to PW and there’s always going to be questions about that, there always is with everyone else whos married to someone more famous than themselves. But give the girl a break. I have d/load some Zuzu Ps tracks and I really liked the raw punky energy of them, I thought she was great and could have gone so much further. She obviously had the talent for it. Bit sad that she’s not accepted as a person/rock n roller in her own right and unfair. Just not cricket as we would say over here in England. I am now determined to get the book and see for myself. So there!!

  • Jimdracula says:

    Union Jack & Blasty should hit it off…be careful listening to those Zuzu’s Petals records, son….I wasn’t & now I got Van Gogh’s ear for music…it was “Jackals” that led to the infection, yo.

  • Johnny says:

    Zuzu’s Petals retrospective available online, which includes music spanning the band’s entire career as well as photos that weren’t available at the time “Petal Pusher” was printed.

    Cool, at least there are now some more pictures! The book was sorely lacking…

  • Jimdracula says:

    Thanx “Johnny”…but where does one go online if interested in ordering….how much they askin’?…You sell Wondermint?

  • jaytaco says:

    so not cricket….

  • Jimdracula says:

    Thanx for the price check…it’s 19.95 for the zuzus petals cd.
