    The Dead Kennedys' "California Ueber Alles" has been stuck in my head all day.

    The DKs version or the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy (aka Michael Franti) version?

    I'm the governor Pete Wilson you know
    The baddest governor to ever grab the mic and go
    Gimme a budget and watch me hack it
    Gimme a beat and I'll show you how to jack it
    I give the rich a giant tax loophole
    I leave the poor living in a poop hole
    At a time when AIDS is in a crisis,
    I cut health care and I raise prices
    Sales tax. Snack tax. Excise tax.
    Information's attacked with a newspaper tax
    I hit the pocketbooks of working families
    Increasing tuition at the universities
    Someday I'll command all of you
    Even you're kids are gonna pray to me in school
    Soon I'm going to be the President
    You might remember the last one this state sent

    California Uber Alles
    California Uber Alles

    I'm so proud to know The Great Communicator
    I want to be known as The Great Incarcerator
    I blow environmentalists away
    And I'll be Da Fuhrer someday
    I keep cutting public education
    Even though we rank 45th in the nation
    I got a plan for the minorities
    To send them to the California Youth Authorities
    From San Francisco Urban Elementary
    to Pelican Bay State Penitentiary
    There they can work for the master race
    and always wear a happy face
    Close your eyes, it can happen here
    Big Brother in his squad car is coming near
    Come and join the surf and sun
    And keep California number one.

    Now it's 1992
    Knock, knock on your front door - Yo! Guess who?
    It's the suede-denim secret police
    They've come to your house for your long haired niece
    We're gonna send her off to a camp
    Because she's been accused of growing hemp
    Don't you worry, it's only a shower
    Now for your clothes, here's a pretty flower
    We're gonna die on malathion gas
    The surpent's egg has already been hatched
    There's people starving and living in the streets
    Because they tried to mess with me, President Pete

    Both, actually.

    They keep flipping back and forth. Kind of like the attention span of the average American voter.

    Strange you say that. Gray got his start under Gov. Moonbeam.
