Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me

A new theme song? Seriously, Hee Haw came to mind while listening to this new Porter Wagoner CD (some good songs, generally trying to slipstream off the later Johnny Cash stuff)I got Mary for her birthday. But seriously, after Nascar Democrats, Sarah the Hairstyle, and Joe the Plumber, it's easy to see how a remake of Hee Haw might make business sense in 2008:

  • It has a ready toolkit of folksy rejoinders to economic downturn
  • It's as cheap as reality TV
  • It has a history of T & A in skimpy costumes
  • You could do it at the Grand Old Opry and get box office revenues, or even build another Grand Old Opry in Vegas or Branson
