Jello Biafra does not like Hillary

I blogged a year ago about Jello Biafra, the former punk-rocker who now does spoken word.

He is an entertaining left-wing loudmouth.

On his last album – a triple-CD called “In the Grip of Official Treason” – Mr. Biafra trash-talked Hillary Clinton big time.

It was mid-2006. Clinton was running for re-election to the Senate... while already casting her gaze toward the White House.

But she put herself in a trick bag. Because ever since she got to the Senate, Hillary has been moving to the right, believing that’s what she must do to get elected president. Hence her support for the war in Iraq.

Now she’s all pissed because the left wing of the Democratic party – the MoveOn.org type folks, and now Michael Moore too – is supporting Barack Obama.

Hillary’s rightward shift is bound to reap dividends today in Pennsylvania. But this Jello Biafra clip illustrates the passion of the anti-Hillary left.

Click here to hear a 4½-minute track called “And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Cash.”

By the way, I will be live-blogging the Pennsylania primary coverage. So stop by here tonight if you feel like talking some politics.

I voted for Jello for mayor of SF. Okay, not really since I was underage, but I did wear the "I voted for Jello" pin :-)
