This is … fabulous.

I’d say this will make Stephen Stills kill himself just so he can roll in his grave – except I’m told that’s him playing the guitar so what the hell do I know.

I’m also told that the reason this godawful video (I haven’t made it more than a minute in so maybe it gets better – but I won’t bet the rent on it) is all over the Intertubes this morning is that it was played as the closer at the ‘virtual’ Democrat convention last night. This means something I find appalling, even by the very low standards to which I hold political apparatchiks…

Despite appearances this wasn’t put together by a bored gay guy alone with a green screen in his basement. Hey, I doubt Stills comes cheap. And then numerous, perhaps many people, presumably adults, decided that playing this … thing at the 2020 Democratic National Convention was a good thing to do: That this was exactly the look required for the political party that seriously intends to rule the United States of America.

I’m going to take a walk and let that sink in. And then maybe shoot myself.

    50 seconds is all I could do.

    Your brief, elliptical, opinionated review is all I’ve seen. I recall somebody elsewhere moaning about how bad the closing was for the first night: was this why?

    In other nightmares, I recall a still photo of Mr. & Mrs. Gore and Mr. & Mrs. Clinton in blue jeans as some Fleetwood Mac thing played.

    Same generation, same moves. Still not watching.

    So is this a commercial for the Soviet Socialist Republic of America?

    WTF?

    Trigger finger very itchy, not enough hydrocortisone or gunpowder in the world to make it feel better.

  4. Tsgt Joe says:

    after watching, I feel oddly discomfited.

    I skipped to near the end. You no longer have to wonder if it gets better. Trust me.

  6. Stuff like that is why I envy your desert hermit life most of the time. No need to shoot yourself– you’re in the best possible place to be as this crap plays out.

    I find that my life is much more enjoyable since i quit listening to what the msm, and politicians in particular, yammer on about.
    So since i didnt watch any of, it i’m sitting here fat, happy, and with an unpolluted mind. Relatively.

    winston smith – I envy you your serenity. I keep trying, but it looks like I’m just a news junky to the end and all the news is appalling.

    I’m not sure that “fabulous” would be quite how I would have described it…..

    I made it to about the 1 minute mark.

    Played this at the convention, eh? I guess we don’t need any better proof that these communist radicals never made it out of the 60s. Sad.

    jesus aich crist. what the hell is this?

  12. beaner49 says:

    The other side should play this same video with clips of Portland, NY, Seattle etc. as the background.

  13. TK421a says:

    Damn, now I’ll never enjoy this tune in the same way again.

  14. Kentucky says:

    Didn’t even make thirty seconds . . .

  15. Ben says:

    A lot of these old rockers are best appreciated from their older recordings and videos. I saw Crosby Stills & Nash probably 20 years ago, and even then is was clear that, of the three, Stills was past his prime. I’m no musician, but even I could tell that his timing was off.

    Beaner49 – yeah, https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qTJzPeg8if4

    Off on a short walk-about where sanity still keeps ‘em at bay.

To the stake with the heretic!
