Stand By Me: Presidential Candidate Version

So, The Won endorsed The Ton. Ho-Hum. Oh and  BTW, yes, The Ton is apparently under “criminal investigation” despite previous denials to the contrary. It’s no big deal, lots of Presidential Nominees have been under criminal investigation while running for…oh wait, no; they haven’t. Still no big deal, Barry is going to stand by her.

In other news - if you are suffering from Muhammad Ali fatigue, it will all be over soon: The Greatest is being laid to rest today. Here, I think, is the best way to remember him - as Cassius Clay. In case you forgot or never knew, before he was World Heavyweight Champion he was just another aspiring young singer. Here is a recording he made, a year before he became Muhammad Ali, singing Stand By Me. From singing to stinging; the guy actually might have been the greatest.


I think this could be Hillary’s new campaign theme song:

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me


FOOTNOTE: This 45 is from an album Cassius Clay recorded in 1963, one year before he became Muhammad Ali. Listen to the flip side titled I Am The Greatest and tell me he wasn’t. Why, the man might actually have been the first African American rapper as well. For that I’ll never forgive him.
