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
