Momentary Reversion to Complete and Total Idiocy

Lest this blog risk taking itself too seriously, herewith some slightly customized lyrics that popped into my head during my 4 mile run today with the finale from Hairspray blasting through the iPod as I contemplated recent political events in California, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, etc. and what they portend for the future:

You can't stop today [No! ]
As it comes speeding 'round the track [oooh, child yes! ]
Yesterday is hist'ry [be gone! ]
And it's never comin' back! [Look ahead, cause...]
Tomorrow isn't gonna wait, and it don't know gay from straight [Yeah! ]

'Cause the world keeps spinnin' round and round
And my heart's keepin time to the speed of sound
I was lost 'til I heard the drums, then I found my way
'Cause you can't stop the beat!

Ever since we first saw the light,
Two lads in love would like to shake it on a Saturday night
So I'm gonna shake and shimmy it with all of my might today!
Cause you can't stop the motion of the ocean, or the rain from above
And you can try to stop the paradise we're dreamin' of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay
'Cause you can't stop the beat!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming of allegedly mature, rational analysis.
