Posted on 04/30/2012 9:19:30 AM PDT by sonrise57

I couldn't help but think of this when I heard Obama's new campaign slogan.

"I took LSD and he stayed with Jack Daniel’s; the line between us was drawn. That was, as far as he was concerned, the edge of the continent, and he thought you were supposed to stop there. I was younger than he was and I didn’t see any reason to stop, so I kept moving forward..."

I think of Seeger's 'Waste Deep In The Big Muddy'myself.

This is why I love FR - fellow citizens who draw great connections like this one to the Merry Pranksters. How about we chronicle their misadventures in an updated version, starring of course Obama as Kesey himself, Valerie Jarrett as Mountain Girl, Biden as Neal Cassidy, and the provider of all the mental candy that fires the whole expedition, Owsley, as played by of course George Soros.

Do not knock The Mombasa MF's new slogan. It's way better than the previous tag line:

WIN THE FUTURE
aka, WTF.

Of course, it was Sarah Palin who had the effrontery to point out that acronym to our Fearlessly Ineligible Leader, whose team was unaware of the irony..

Apropos of nothing at all, FORWARD! was for many years the name of the Yiddish Communist Newspaper.

I am sure none of the Alinsky-ites were aware....

Just thought I'd mention that one of the original Merry Pranksters is an (actual) clown known as Wavy Gravy.

Real Name: High Romney

No relation, but still a hugh coincidence.

Thank you. Are these copyrighted? I thought I might commission these outstanding and awe-inspiring posters as a TP roll.

Apparently, it is the only way to get Obama behind us.

Comrades, FORWARD!

“Hugh Romney” — I’m blaming auto-correct.

Wavy Gravy

Seriesly? Cool ... believe they interviewed Wavy Gravy on the History Channel's series on the 1960s. Hadn't heard about him since he announced at Woodstock. Thanks for the neat trivia fact!

Only sounds like “forward”. What he actually said was “FOAD!” I’ll leave you to figure out what the letters mean.
