Vote for me and I'll set you free

Hey hey!

Love & Rockets:

The Temptations have better outfits, but they're harder to dance to:

I've been hearing the L&R version in heavy rotation on Sirius (Bauhaus has a new album coming out) and it sticks in my head, but the anti-Reagan bit confuses me. "Vote for me and I'll set you free"--that's Hillary, promising to give you everything you didn't know you needed so you never have to be responsible for your own well-being ever again. Wikipedia says it was originally written so as not to offend conservative fans of The Temptations. Hrm.

Still scarily relevant. And the band plays on.
