The revolution starts…how?
I’m a Steve Earle fan – as much for his politics as his music – so it’s with no small amount of dismay that I read this in today’s Back Seat column in The O:
He’s (Earle) also the fellow who recently sold the title track of that album (The Revolution Starts Now) to Chevy for a truck commercial. Ack! The Chicago Tribune quoted his business manager thusly: “It’s just a business decision we decided to make, and we went with it.”
Mr. Self-Righteous Lefty, who bashes country crooner and Ford shill Toby Keith, is admittedly a step up from former Chevy pitchman and well-known geezer Bob Seger.
But, hot dang, you can’t get a more phony combo than Marxism and the Silverado Half-Ton.
(fill in your scathing rejoinder here – I’m fresh out…)
