a victory song

We'll be back to regularly scheduled dinner party programming tomorrow. But for now, let's just practice these words again and again: President Barack Obama.

I can't wait until January 20. Until then, I'll be playing this song.

The Underdog, by Spoon

Picture yourself in the living room
your pipe and slippers set out for you

I know you think that it ain't too far

But I hear the call of a lifetime ring

felt the need to get up for it

oh you cut out the middleman

get free from the middleman

You got no time for the messenger,

got no regard for the thing that you don't understand,

you got no fear of the underdog,

that's why you will not survive!

I wanna forget how convention fits

but can I get out from under it?

Can I gut it out of me?

It can't all be wedding cake

It can't all be boiled away

I try but I can't let go of it

Can't let go of it,

Cause you don't talk to the water boy

and there's so much you could learn but you don't want to know,

You will not back up an inch ever,

that's why you will not survive!

The thing that I tell you now

It may not go over well

And it may not be photo-op

in the way that I spell it out

But you won't hear from the messenger,

don't wanna know bout something that you don't understand,

You got no fear of the underdog,

that's why you will not survive! (Hey!)

I think George Bush finally heard from the messenger.
