GOP Video: Dems On Saddam's WMD's

Who you gonna believe, them or your own lying Times?

Subliminadabbubble Messages? Traffic Non-Santa points out the music playing in the clip is Traffic's Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, which, I guess, he supposes is some kind of gay joke.

Not necessarily. The song's about whores. Male whores, gay whores, hustlers, yes. But whores first and foremost.

I'd say the "hustler/whore" message is the intended one, not the "fruity fairyboy" one. 'Sides, a lot of hustlers aren't even actually gay. (Or so the movies tell me.) Same as a female prostitute isn't really all that in to having sex with you.

If the RNC really wanted to push the gay thing, the song would have been Relax (Don't Do It) seguing into Duran Duran's Wild Boys, which, for my money, is even gayer than the Frankie Goes To Hollywood one.

NRO acclaims Insty's knowledge of Traffic's songbook. Identifying their most famous song? C'mon. Reciting lyrics from the song proves something. Like this:

The percentage you're paying is too high a price
while you're giving up on all of your dreams
and the man in the suit just bought a new car
from the profit he made off your jeans

Or something pretty close to that. From memory. That second line looks a little off.

If Instapundit really wants to show off his knowlege of Traffic, he can answer this question: Which Traffic album is Can't Find My Way Home on?


Loose Lyrics: Dan says the second line of that chorus is "while you're living beyond all your means," which sounds right. To be honest, I completely spaced on that line, and just made up words with about the right number of syllables and with an approximate rhyme at the end.
