But "Jack and Diane" — is that a good song for a politician, if you start listening to the words?
Suckin' on chili dogs outside the Tastee FreezI'm sitting there in the overflow room, thinking about how Mitt wooed Ann back in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in the 1960s. Bobbie Brooks was a brand of clothes that teenage girls were proud to wear — not cheap, but if you babysat a little, you could buy them. In 1968, you were hoping to look like this:
Diane's sittin' on Jackie's lap, he's got his hand between her knees
Jackie say "Hey, Diane let's run off behind a shady tree"
Dribble off those Bobbie Brooks slacks, let me do what I please
Maybe that helps you picture young Ann and Mitt at the Tastee Freez.
