While in L.A. I had the great privilege and fortunate timing to be at the Tonight Show taping for May 2, 2005 wherein musical Guest, new hot thing, admired Omaha-ite, avid Bush-basher (and constant fascination of my friend Steph) was performing. Supposing he would perform "First Day of My Life" or something from his current tour from Digital Ash ("Hit the Switch" possibly?) he instead chose to sing "When The President Talks To God" !!! In front of Jay Leno...known conservative?! Props to Jay for listenening to the track and still having nerve to broadcast the song on his show. Having the pleasure of being smack right in the front row by Conor during the performance was exciting...save for the fact that I hoped that there were no staunch Republicans with tomatoes behind me. Here is a recount in case you missed it.
