Meet Me In a Land of Hope and Dreams
As we noted here in April, Bruce Springsteen got aboard the Barack Obama train, and now that summer's gone, the time is right for the Presidential race.
For the "poor man wanna be rich" crowd, Mr. Springsteen will be doing a free solo acoustic performance in connection with a final push for voter registration, in Philadelphia on Saturday, October 4. (h/t Atrios)
For the "rich man wanna be king" crowd, Mr. Springsteen will join Billy Joel (in a "Barack, Billy and Bruce" event) on Thursday, October 16, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. It's a pricey fundraiser, kids. Hat tip to Backstreets.com, which I respect and rely on, but I hope that when they called this "Vote for Change: This Year's Model", they had their tongue in their cheek. This is more of a "high rollers lay down your bets" kind of event.
For the "and a king ain't satisfied 'till he rules everything" crowd, see the current Administration.
