McLaughlin Group Immortalized In Andrew W.K.'s Rock Song
Do you know who watches The McLaughlin Group? If you guessed "Not us," you're right! But a certain filthy-jeans-wearing writer of party anthems named Andrew W.K. counts himself among those who waken every Sunday to the dulcet tones of old people screaming at each other. And now he has made a musical song based on Pat Buchanan and John McLaughlin's crazy rantings!
Here's the actual McLaughlin Group exchange that inspired the song:
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: Question: Does Romney's endorsement seal the deal? Is McCain now the inevitable Republican nominee? I ask you, Pat.
MR. BUCHANAN: John, absent celestial intervention, I think he's going to get the nomination.
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: Absent what?
MR. BUCHANAN: Celestial intervention.
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: Well, it happens, Pat. May he rest in peace, Paul Wellstone. John Heinz was killed in an airplane crash.
MR. BUCHANAN: Well, let's not speculate on it.
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: Death comes in the night on cats' paws, Pat. You never know.
MR. BUCHANAN: On little cats' feet. That's the fog, John, that comes in on little cats' feet.
