Show Description
Talking with friend Sol about the elections His friend Fred signs up for election in his district just for fun - and wins! Now he's in Washington talking like a real politician. Politicians all say the same things - just fill in the blanks. Shep once wrote down all the cliches used during campaigns and then read them on his show. Came on at midnight, no theme, and began reading them off accompanied by background music, a recording of a big cheering crowd, and a gavel. Went on for 27-1/2 minutes. (Is this "Fellow Americans" from the Foibles record?)
Notes
