firebrand politics. iconic, hated, beloved, notorious, infamous, vile, disgusting.

bro was great at getting votes.

right or wrong.......it is very hard to imagine the south's legacy w/o george wallace.

dude cast a wide shadow.....still does today.

kiss ass politicians who pander to assholes is one of my favorite dbt lines ever.

Throw another log on the fire, boys, George Wallace is coming to stay
When he met St. Peter at the pearly gates, I'd like to think that a black man stood in the way.
I know "All should be forgiven", but he did what he done so well
So throw another log on the fire boys,
George Wallace is a coming…

Now, he said he was the best friend a black man from Alabama ever had,
And I have to admit, compared to Fob James, George Wallace don't seem that bad
And if it's true that he wasn't a racist and he just did all them things for the votes
I guess Hell's just the place for "kiss ass politicians" who pander to assholes.

So throw another log on the fire, boys, George Wallace is coming to stay
I know, in the end, he got the black people's votes, but I bet they'd still vote him this way.
And Hell's just a little bit hotter cuz He played his hand so well
He had what it took to take it so far

Now the Devil's got a Wallace sticker on the back of his car

"OH ------ ALABAMA…"

Patterson covered it well enough that nothing more is needed.
Don't hurt people, and don't take their stuff.

Sometimes less is more. Especially when dime is in the mix.
It's a battle for the very soul of the USA
