Musical Interlude

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

With thanks to Big Bubba, who emailed me the link to the following wonderful dance routine:

In the above video, Bob Hope is age fifty-two, and James Cagney is age fifty-six.

By the way, at the time of the filming of that dance routine, Bob Hope was a Republican, and James Cagney was a Democrat. But they got along. A lesson in civility!


  1. Very cool! :)

    Of course, being a Democrat back then was quite different from being one now!

  2. Of course, being a Democrat back then was quite different from being one now!

    Just what I was going to say! James Webb is the closest thing to an old school democrat, and he's retiring.

  3. I need to check Jim Webb's statement about his retiring from the Senate after only one term.

    And, yes, Webb is an "old school Democrat." I believe that he has done something to help veterans, too.

  4. i think the old time Democrats, as well as, the old time Republicans are long gone. Hopefully some day soon the Tea Part conservatives can claim to be the new Republican Party.

  5. Bubba finds the best stuff, doesn't he? I ADORE CAGNEY and refuse to think that, today, he'd embrace anything about the Dem party. :-)
    It's just TOO OUT OF STEP for him! (heh heh)

  6. wow I used to tap too girl!!! .Hope u had a nice weekend~!:)

  7. That was awesome. I loved those performers, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Ginger Rogers, Red Skelton and all the rest of them. Those were fine days of American pride and clean jokes. I wish they'd never ended but they sure have. Great find, thanks. I thoroughly enjoyed that.
