As the 2012 U.S. election year winds down, I offer a little John Hartford style Banjo-centic advice to all candidates for public office, reminding them how not to choke in the home stretch!
Well it’s been an interesting year in many ways, and with all the furor surrounding the parliamentary elections in Russia, the year end and the new year are going to be more interesting still.
Amid the many things working to divide us, music is one thing that can transcend our differences and bring us together in a very human way. Here at the end of another year is a little song of mine which I hope will brighten your year-end holiday season however you celebrate it. I hope you will share it around with your family and friends.
I wish you peace, health, and hope in the year ahead.

If you hated the song you’re sure to hate the video.
Dedicated with no fondness whatsoever to Rep. John Bohner, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Gov. Sarah Palin, the rest of the Tea Party, and the Big Pigs on whose puppet-strings they mindlessly dance.
This video depicts pigs in close proximity to corrupt politicians and business people. After the fact, I realized that in this I may have gone too far and caused offense. If I have, I apologize unreservedly to all pigs everywhere.
