Zappa on Politics in the USA....

Bill Fite Wrote:I remember seeing him interviewed on Larry King in the 80s. I believe it was an hour on the TV then 2 on the radio.

He said he was thinking of running for president. King asked him what his platform would be.

FZ: "If elected I will enforce the Constitution of the US"

King asked him about the Republicans and Democrats.

FZ: "The Republicans stand for nothing but unmitigated greed and evil wrapped in the American flag"

King: the Democrats?

FZ: "The Democrats stand for nothing but wanting to be Republicans"



Very intelligent man. I wish he was still around.

Little known, but true....Vaclav Havel, past President of the Czech Republic [who was a playwright before becoming first President after Communism] asked Zappa to become the Czech Minister of Culture. I'm really not sure if Zappa had any Czech heritage, but Havel was very serious and they discussed it - and Havel could have granted him citizenship to make it OK. After thinking about it, Zappa declined with thanks. I know about this because I live here in the Czech Republic now. Many posters of Zappa and Havel are on people's walls here.

There are quite a few good interviews with Zappa in his last years. Sad he died so young of cancer. Yes, he was intelligent and moral......
