Presidential Musicology

Obama:  a muddled-mess; a Niebuhr-ian flip-flopper;  a John Cage-ian adopter of chance procedures; a point neither here nor there.

The score calls for a PRESIDENT

a man Sostenuto,

a Well-Tempered Clavier –

not a free-floating theological realist, not a pointilist nor a tempo rubato self-centered-ess and certainly not 4’33”.
