John Thompson in song

Minnesota state representative John Thompson is a thug, a racial hustler, a scofflaw, an abuser of women, and an all-around bad guy. When stopped by a St. Paul police sergeant for driving a car lacking a front license plate in the early morning hours of July 4, Thompson presented a Wisconsin driver’s license and accused the officer of racism.

We have learned too much about Thompson since then, though nothing that has come as a surprise. I have chronicled his saga in posts you can find here. Minnesota’s DFL richly deserves to be stuck with him.

Our friends at Justice & Drew at Twin Cities News Talk 1130 AM have commissioned a theme song honoring Thompson. It recapitulates his saga in song with a calypso lilt.
