Welcome Back, Jerry

This post celebrates one of the most amazing comebacks in recent memory:  Jerry Brown’s apparent re-election as Governor of California.  Whether you agree with the voters of California or not, Jerry Brown’s record is impressive:  elected in 1974 as the youngest California Governor at 36, Brown will re-enter the office as the state’s oldest Governor at twice this age — 72– in January, 2011.

Ironically, in the same poll California voters rejected the “Legalize and Tax Marijuana Act” (Proposition 19).  While Brown was Governor the first time, there were lots of rumors about the ‘Guv and his celebrity girlfriend Linda Ronstadt smoking pot.  It’s comical for Moonbeam and “Just Say No” to prevail in the same election.  Ah, the glories of the Golden State,

So here’s to you, Jerry.  Welcome Back.

Welcome Back, Jerry

(to the tune of “Welcome Back Kotter”)

Welcome back,

Your beams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,

To that same old place where you drove your Sat.

Well the names have all changed since went your way,

But the games have returned and they’re worse today.

Who’d have thought they’d lead ya (Who’d have thought they’d lead ya)

Back here where we need ya? (Back here where we need ya?)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we’ve hot him on the spot, welcome back,

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
