texas is the reason

misfits-bulletToday is the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination, and I have been watching way too many PBS Frontline conspiracy documentaries about it by myself lately. Makes for some weird nightmares.

Anyhoo, this is fun:

“For everyone who wasn’t black, Native American, Filipino, Spanish, the Dulles brothers, Chinese, Japanese, Cuban, familiar with our history with the Barbary pirates, Lenny Bruce, Lady Bird Johnson, a citizen of any number of African countries having their anti colonialist ambitions consistently under cut by American “national interests”, a woman of any color other than white, fuck it-a white woman too, or generally paying attention in any way shape or form; November 22nd was the end of America’s sense of innocence. Aw.

But I came not to mock our arguably prettiest president, but to praise a song about his death.  There are many great songs about JFK’s death but to discuss them all would result in a listicle and, ha-ha, I’m not going to do that. No, I want to talk about the best song about Kennedy, the second best Misfits song, the worst choice for a first song at your wedding; Bullet.”

Go read the rest over at Noisey.
