In theory, DEMOCRACY is the TOPS!!! can NOT be outdone. The joy of the many. In American practice 2017, still more thievery and vile hate, hardly obliquely camouflaged yet trumpeted adoringly by the sadly ignorant. And NOOOO, don't take this as my declaration of love for the G.O.P. either. take this as my abhorrent disgust at my rock n roll singers playing part time politician. Hate it in Bruce, HATE it in Elvis.

As a huge Sam Bee fan I say...good on you Elvis! Wish I could be there. Hope to see some YouTube and/or Periscope clips.

Also reported in the Washington Post, dated 25 April 2017 by Helena Andrews-Dyer: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-source/wp/2017/04/25/elvis-costello-to-perform-at-the-not-the-white-house-correspondents-dinner/?utm_term=.51d56132efbf

"Elvis Costello to perform at the ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’

Is the complete lack of star power during this year’s White House correspondents’ dinner weekend keeping you up at night? No fear. Elvis Costello to the rescue.

The team behind comedian Samantha Bee’s “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” announced on Tuesday that the “Accidents Will Happen” crooner is slated to perform at Bee’s after-party, which is shaping up to be the only shindig in town with a reliable guest list of VIPs.

TBS and New York Magazine will sponsor the after-party to be held at the W Hotel POV Rooftop immediately following Bee’s dinner slash one-hour special taping at DAR Constitution Hall. Costello and his band The Imposters will perform “for a crowd of hardworking journalists honored at the event,” according to a release. Just which “hardworking” reporters plan to sit in the audience to all this honoring remains to be seen, but we do know that comedians such as Keegan-Michael Key, actor and former White House staffer Kal Penn and former “The Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams will be there."

Where are our setlist-loving journalists? One of them should have been keeping a record for posterity!
Who put these fingerprints on my imagination?
