Concert on the mall

Obama's concert on the mall had high points and low points too. But there were notable omissions in the programming.

First off, Bob Dylan. There was a meme afloat back in '07 that he was supporting Ron Paul, but I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere. Most likely they were afraid he would flake out and so mangle one of his songs so badly as to make it unrecognizable. But, after all, he did open for Reverend King back at the March on Washington.

Secondly, P-Funk. "One Nation Under a Groove" should have been the theme song for the campaign, really.
