maybe he could use "Jesus is just alright" instead?

"'Boston has never endorsed a political candidate, and will all due respect, would not start by endorsing a candidate who is the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for,' wrote Scholz..."

Um, what DOES Boston stand for? Do the lyrics of any of their songs have messages that are, or can be construed as, political?

they probably don't stand for Creationism...

Who can stop de-evolution of the human race?
Look at you, Corporate America, you're in disgrace
Globalize; cigarettes, business jets, you love it
Maximize; but you can take your bottom line and shove it

Gotta get away (gotta get away)
Gotta get away, but I need a little help tonight
What 'ya gonna say (what 'ya gonna say)
What 'ya gonna say when you never even seen the light
See the light

Corporate America, look out, look out
Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now?

You and I; DVDs, SUVs and cyberspace
Flying blind, virtual reality is in our face
This Earth desecrated by the human race
Now what's it worth? When do we evacuate to outer space?

Corporate America, look out, look out
Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now?

I see the future in the past
Just took the corner way too fast, the reckless ride of modern man
Flattened everything that stands
Fooled by the sales pitch for progress at a dizzy pace
We idolize the filthy rich for giving us synthetic taste
Computer calls, urban sprawl
Is the world a better place, is the world a better place?

Fare thee well, global extinction's forever
So what the hell, order your Mercedes in leather
Veal crates, ozone holes, and toxic waste
And don't count out religious hate
Who can survive this manmade fate?

Gotta get away
Gotta get away, and I need a little help tonight
What 'ya gonna say
Wha 'ya gonna say when you couldn't even see the light
See the light
Yeah
(Tom Scholz)

Actually, I think "A Man I'll Never Be" would be an awesome campaign song for Huckabee:

If I said whats on my mind
Youd turn and walk away
Disappearing way back in your dreams
Its so hard to be unkind
So easy just to say
That everything is just the way it seems

You look up at me
And somewhere in your mind you see
A man Ill never be

If only I could find a way
Id feel like Im the man you believe I am
And it gets harder every day for me
To hide behind this dream you see
A man Ill never be

I cant get any stronger
I cant climb any higher
Youll never know just how hard Ive tried
Cry a little longer
And hold a little tighter
Emotions cant be satisfied

You look up at me
And somewhere in your mind you see
A man Ill never be

If only I could find a way
Id feel like Im the man you believe I am
And it gets harder every day for me
To hide behind this dream you see
A man Ill never be

So sad what this wicked generation has produced. I know it well. I was one of the wicked before I was saved. Pray that the Lord calls you before you meet Him face to face. You will be dead a lot longer that you are alive.

"I am The Way, The Truth and The Life, no one comes to the Father but by Me." (Jesus Christ) John 14:6

Saved by grace through faith...

"Preacher," was your comment prompted by a particular comment posted earlier (perhaps the first one)? Or do you think Tom Scholz must be wicked simply because he opposes Mike Huckabee? Do you believe Huckabee is the best candidate for President because he's the only evangelical X-ian left in the race?

Wow liberals are so openminded. When I saw that Huckaphonee used a Boston song, the first thing that went through my head was how cool it was the Tom Scholtz was supporting him.

Tom, go crawl back under the rock of irrelevancy.
