George is a California TV interviewer and commentator who has built a following of sorts by espousing a number of political views so conservative they make William F. Buckley seem like the first secretary of the Communist party of Albania. This mercifully short mini-LP includes four of his diatribes, set to music (including, in one case, America the Beautiful). Some sample lines: "Better dead than red, that's my lifelong cry/So I get 'em on my hot seat and watch 'em fry." "I fully support Jane Fonda's Workout, as long as she works out of this country." "Why can't we get high on patriotism, God and the Bible?" On gays: "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." On America, Why I Love Her, Wally, who is a former disc jockey, seems to be confusing the American Revolutionary War with the Civil War, since he refers to the battle of Gettysburg as "the battle to make us free." But no matter. He's got to be kidding anyway, aren't you, Wally? Right, Wally?...Wally? (Rhino)
