Ed Martin: Congressional Candidate (and Parrothead) Re-Writes Jimmy Buffet
And one of Buffet's fans who plans to attend the show is Republican congressional candidate Ed Martin, who is hosting a concert pre-party (and fundraiser) at El Paisano in south St. Louis this afternoon. Writes Martin on his Facebook invite for the event:
Because it's 5 o'clock somewhere Ed Martin will be hosting a margarita fundraiser before the concert on April 29th. Please join Ed and lets start tasting away in Margaritaville!Wait a second!? "Tasting away" in Margaritaville?
Those aren't the lyrics! Okay, okay. We understand, Ed.
As a man looking to restore good, ol'-fashioned conservative morals to Washington, you can't go around parroting (even if you're a "Parrothead") the boozy themes of a calypso crooner.
Still, "tasting away" in Margaritaville!?
What's next? A song titled, "Why Don't We Get Chaste and Snooze?" J.B. would not approve.
