In which Fred Schneider of The B-52’s sings – to a “Love Shack” beat – excerpts from former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s recently published book:

That was inspired.  But too bad no one heard the plug for the new B-52’s album.

The name Scooter Libby will never sound quite the same to me.

Now, can we also hear these great literary moments interpreted in the same way, please?

  • “This hobbit was a very well-to-do hobbit, and his name was Baggins.” [J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit]
  • “Persons attempting to find a Motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a Moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a Plot in it will be shot.” [Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn]
  • “Sometimes, the candle barely out, my eyes closed so quickly that I did not have time to tell myself: “I’m falling asleep.”” [Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way]

I see the budding of a vibrant new career for Mr. Schneider.
