    I never did like Zappa. Musical genius he was, also fucked up! Is that Maria Shriver?

    Sounds like Danforth listened to Zappa. :puke:

    Zappa's music is..just off the chain and uncalled for.

    Go Maria! (That ass!)

    This isn't even about Zappa's music, his stuff was 10 years prior and raunchier than anything they're talking about.

    Zappa was just fucked up, smart, but fucked up, I think he died of AIDS, ok?

    Gee, intelligent, genuine debate! Too bad this has disappeared from American politics.

    You know Maria Shriver is like, one of the few Kennedys that hasn't been killed, right?

    Seems like a quaint debate now. The right never did then and still doesn’t know now how to ask “what’s your end game”.

    He also testified to congress with John Denver and Dee Snider to fight the censorship of Tipper Gores PMRC. Who were attempting to limit free speech on music. Imagine that...liberals limiting speech.
    These labels you can thank the Gores for...

    Zappa was shunned by the music business because he was a Libertarian who was anti drugs well.

    The PMRC was started by Al Gores wife

    He was so prolific probably because he knew he would be around for long
