HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Bayh the Way

Some Hoosiers are blasting Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) for his decision not to run for re-election — and some have even put their angst into musical form. HOH appreciates the guitar-strumming folksters behind Youtube ditty “Bayh, Bayh, Miss American Pie” for their arcane knowledge of Indiana politics, if not their ability to carry a tune.

[IMGCAP(1)]The nerdy takeoff of Don McLean’s classic “American Pie” features lyrics that unfavorably compare the retiring Senator to his legendary father, former Sen. Birch Bayh: “Bayh, Bayh, Mr. Evan Bayh/You’re such a loser of a Hoosier that you won’t even try/Your daddy was a hero, you’re just some douchey guy.”
