eddie spaghetti on the election
Eddie’s been sending these out all summer to the Supersuckers mailing list. It’s pretty self-explanatory that a lot of people haven’t been real happy about the situation:
That’s right, it’s down to the nitty gritty. I know that many of you
think that my emails should consist strictly of “liquor, women, drugs
and killing, rock-n-roll, outlaw country and the occasional joke or two
and to you, I apologize. Feel free to bury your head in the sand once
more and delete this missive now because I am here to use my (very
nominal) influence to tell our fans to please get out and vote for a
change this Tuesday.
“To my republican friends (and I hope you are still my friends if you’ve
made it this far into my email) I have this rock-n-roll analogy for
“Let’s say that the Republican Party is Van Halen and (for the sake of
argument we will time travel quite a bit) Abraham Lincoln is the David

dyed-in-the-wool Van Halen fans have to admit, this was one bad idea,
it didn’t work and, thankfully we only had to put up with one record
from this version of the Republican Par…, uh, I mean… Van Halen.
Gary made Van Halen so bad that Sammy Hagar returning actually seems to
be a GOOD idea!
“So there you go, even Republicans have to admit that G.W. has totally
“Gary Cheroned” this Presidency, don’t you think? I thought this would
help clear things up for you. Now get out there and buy one of those
“Republicans For Kerry” stickers and help us make this change. Sure
Kerry’s no Diamond Dave either, but who is anymore? It’s not like Van
Halen’s gonna ask ME to sing for ’em…
