Re: “Walter was the worst

Tarpley would've been better served if he from Arkansas, critiqued Bill Clinton as former governor for using the CIA to smuggle coke or sold sensitive military weapons secrets to China, passed Agenda 21, NAFTA while lying to the planet as president.

To pick on frustrated musicians who didn't have to steal to create their bones seems a bit chicken shite to say the least and below the belt.

After a while when after writing some of the most iconic words and melodies in an age when disco took the world by storm while Moses went to Sinai to find the tablets, one realizes that it's all been done before and one has reached their limit, just as God appears to have done in creating the planet and John Tarpley.

When you are your own hard act to follow, you cancel yourself out and become a cliche.

And here's betting Walter was well aware of that fact and rather than act like Barney with an audience of two year olds, told it like it is while accelerated decrepitude took its course.

Tarpley should pick on someone his own size if he can wrap his shock jock mind around this line.

Next he'll blame the blue dress for Clinton's bad aim.

No one gets to choose what they look like, neither does a bass.

If Fagen looked like your favorite pretty boy, you would've complained that his voice sounded like Donald Fagen's.

Had Walter not been cynical, Tarpley would've complained that it was so easy for rich Becker to be cheerful and all Gary and Becky Granger while Wednesday really had nothing to bitch about.

Step back Tarpley and read the lyrics so you get that Becker who is listed as FIRST in the writer's credits meaning he came up with most of the seed ideas, did not change from his cynical ways having grown up mistreated on New York streets, yet rose to prominence in spite of his unfortunate upbringing. But then had you critiqued Bill Clinton's life you would've cancelled your pathetic writing out by at least being on the same page of writing about two victims of bad upbringing, but wrong about one who rose out of the ashes using his powers of creative perception while right about Clinton being a two-bit crook.
