Song Lyric of the Day (John Lennon, on Politicians)

“I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.”—John Lennon, “Gimme Some Truth,” from the Imagine LP (1971)

The next time I hear a Jon Corzine or Chris Christie commercial (they’ve been going on every minute of the day, it feels like, since the start of the year), I wish I could start playing this as loudly as possible to drown out the noise from my TV set.
