Daylight Video

For those of you on the East Coast who miss Steve Benen’s prompt 8:00 a.m. posts, and/or resent my sluggish West Coast posting habits, I am inaugurating a “Daylight Video” feature that will provide an interesting or provocative or ALARMING or simply pleasurable introduction to the day. This will also allow me on occasion allow me to share my nostalgic and sometimes obscure musical tastes.

Today’s edition is a slow awakener: an ancient, cheesy Vanilla Fudge version of an ancient, cheesy Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra tune called “Some Velvet Morning.” Enjoy, and I’ll be along within the hour with some topical blogging.
