Song Suggestions for the Dodd Pod

We mentioned earlier that Connecticut senator and new presidential hopeful Chris Dodd is taking song suggestions for his “Dodd Pod.” Wonkette considered “Born to Lose” by The Heartbreakers, which brings to mind “Lost Cause” by Beck and “Running Down a Dream” by Tom Petty. But scratch your head for snarky ideas no longer! The May/June 2006 issue of Mother Jones has a whole list of suggestions we can make in honor of Dodd’s colleagues in Washington. A sampling:

“Been Caught Stealing,” by Jane’s Addiction
Former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R-Calif.)

“Girlfriend in a Coma,” by The Smiths
Former Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn)

“Road to Nowhere,” by Talking Heads
Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska)

“Bridge Over Troubled Water,” by Simon & Garfunkel
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)

“Don’t Fence Me In,” by Cole Porter
Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.)

“Carolina on My Mind,” by James Taylor
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)

“Stuck in the Middle With You,” by Stealers Wheel
Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.)

“Kickstart My Heart,” by Mötley Crüe
Vice-President Dick Cheney

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
