    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gubernatorial_portrait_of_Jerry_Brown

    I believe Gov Jerry Brown's 1984 portrait was pretty innovative. All of the other protraits of governors in this state going back to the 1850's had been realist style portraits so it was nice to see someone doing something different.

    Brown is also our only four term governor. The state constitution was changed in the 1980's to only allow two terms for each governor but as Brown's first teo terms were before the amendment those two didn't count.

    I am Governor Jerry Brown
    My aura smiles
    And never frowns
    Soon I will be president...

    Carter Power will soon go away
    I will be Fuhrer one day
    I will command all of you
    Your kids will meditate in school
    Your kids will meditate in school!

    [Chorus:]
    California Uber Alles
    California Uber Alles
    Uber Alles California
    Uber Alles California

    Zen fascists will control you
    100% natural
    You will jog for the master race
    And always wear the happy face

    Close your eyes, can't happen here
    Big Bro' on white horse is near
    The hippies won't come back you say
    Mellow out or you will pay
    Mellow out or you will pay!

    [Chorus]

    Now it is 1984
    Knock-knock at your front door
    It's the suede/denim secret police
    They have come for your uncool niece

    Come quietly to the camp
    You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
    Don't you worry, it's only a shower
    For your clothes here's a pretty flower.

    DIE on organic poison gas
    Serpent's egg's already hatched
    You will croak, you little clown
    When you mess with President Brown
    When you mess with President Brown

    He has been a great governor. I have a few quibbles but over all he did well.

    What was dumb? Posting lyrics to a Dead Kennedy's song from the 1980's?

    Not surprising that you don't appreciate good music.

    Trump destroying ecosystems sounds about right. Though the kid is obviously far too qualified to fit in with his administration.

    I think it was on "Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables" but it might have been on "Plastic Surgery Disasters." I had both on vinyl at one time.

    Meanwhile, whatever Hannity's smoking, he should stop before he hurts himself:

    In a few weeks' time, the kid is going to decry Trump for his incompetence, and Trump will tweet that the failing youngster never played a big role in removing the brush and he only let him remove the brush because the kid begged and the brush wasn't removed anyway, also, there was no brush.

    The artist who did Obama’s portrait also likes to hide sperm in his paintings. There’s one on the side of Obama’s head.

    Well, thanks for making me imagine that '90s Photoshop chop job being done in anime style.
