Always on His Mind

So it seems that Willie Nelson is a fan of Missouri's Democrat for US Senate, Claire McCaskill. In fact, Jamie Allman reported this morning that Nelson may endorse McCaskill from the concert stage tonight in St. Louis.

It's somewhat laughable to think that a Nelson endorsement would have any impact, especially on country music fans; given Nelson's history of tax evasion and drug possession, it's worth wondering why this is an association the McCaskill campaign is, apparently, welcoming.

Carol,

No insult intended to our home state of Missouri, but if the Democratic candidate received the votes of all the people who at some point in their lives cheated on taxes and possessed drugs, she would win in a landslide.

I love Willie Nelson. I love Garrison Keillor. I love Bob Dylan. I love Richard Wagner. I gets my politics elsewhere.
