Jacksonian Wilson

Last summer, during the run-up to the Presidential election, "Redneck Woman" went No. 1 after only 12 weeks on the charts -- and then stayed at the top for five weeks. I decided on that basis, Bush could be expected to win. The song is a litany of behaviors associated with the part of American society most closely linked with the Jacksonian strain of political philosophy. If the song was that popular then the mindset was too, among people the pollsters probably viewed as unlikely voters.

I finally got my hands on Gretchen Wilson's album, Here For The Party. There is a song on the album entitled "Homewrecker" in which said individual, sniffing around the singer's man at a bar, is advised

You can take it somewhere else
Or we can take it outside.

You can't get much more Jacksonian than that.

My former sister-in-law lost her front teeth in a bar fight that stemmed from a similar situation.
