Tommy Thompson: Courting the hoodlum vote


















Soundtrack: Link Wray — Rumble

h/t Scot Ross.

eta: I just noticed this now, but listen closely for the Ennio Morricone bell and the synthesized *whoosh* coinciding with the appearance of Hoodlum Tommy! at 1:20. Truly a marketing genius, whoever did that.

Can't quite tell which Lou Reed album cover he's trying to imitate.

This biker/hoodlum look has been a recurring Republican theme over the years. The psycho Senator Dave Zien practically lived off it until his constituents realized he really was a hoodlum and a few bricks shy of a full load.

Last night I found myself watching a TV show promoting Wisconsin as a tourist destination. At the very end Governor Psycho appears on a Harley, wearing a shiny new leather jacket, looking very much like Fonzi and encouraging everyone to visit the Badger state. I literally ran from the room screaming. I'm assuming the program was paid for with tax dollars.

You've got to find a photo ob a leather bar with a drag review. Insert Thommy "here".

I went to an old record store to find the actual Tommy! album cover art.
