Alanis Morissette pens California congressional hopeful's theme song


Alanis Morissette has given California congressional candidate Marianne Williamson a big boost by writing her new campaign song.

The singer recorded "Today" to help her politician pal win votes. The Grammy Award winner writes, "I was attempting to capture the passion, mission, activism, deep humanity and tenderness of Marianne, the new political sensibility she represents and the consciousness that produced it. Recording at Sunset Sound with my bandmates, Marianne came by and visited. We all huddled together as the song was recorded. I love this song. I love this woman, and I love a world that would vote for her."

Williamson, an author, is one of 18 candidates seeking to succeed Henry Waxman when he retires after 40 years in Congress in January.

Just what we need. We must increase the disproportionate amount of Jews in Washington. We can't have American government looking out for the best interests of Israel, if we elect gentiles.
Isn't she Canadian? Why is she messing with the D Bag Dem's in California?
