I thought this was gonna be the Youtube video for More Than Words.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Great, more pro-bailout bullshit. Does anybody in the media know shit about economics? Ever hear about a thing called moral hazard?

Very good analysis. It's a matter of how many electoral drubbings it'll take to drive the fire eaters from the GOP, or at least to a minority status. The point about those being elected this time around being the crazies is well taken, and is suggestive that 2010 will be a further round of defections by anyone with half a brain.
