    General CommentActually it's a quote. In 1988 Dan Quayle, George Bush Part 1's vice-president, compared himself to Jack Kennedy. Lloyd Bensen, who was running with Dukakis, said that about what Quayle had just said. It's one of the most famous political lines ever.

    General CommentHas to be about Teddy Kennedy. Mustaine, ebing heavily into politics probably realizes that TK has done nothing to strengthen the Kennedy name, and thus the line "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy "

    General CommentThis is the only track on TSHF that I skip consistently. Its not like "Shadow of Deth", leading into the next song...it just feels out of place.

    General CommentThanks Sunny Day Believer, I found that out after watching a movie in which that part of Lloyd Bensons speech was used. I immiediately thought of what I'd written here with some embarrasment.
