Bad week for aging hippies

Ralph Alter
It's been a tough week for hopelessly liberal rock icons practicing their cartoon alternative lifestyles.

First Neil Young's hippie-rigged, Lincvolt electric car caught fire  and destroyed nearly a million dollars worth of memorabilia in his Peninsula warehouse. Now word comes that Joan Baez fell out of her treehouse:

1960's songbird Joan Baez is "resting comfortably" at an undisclosed location after falling 20 feet to the ground from a treehouse-a treehouse she had purposely built without walls because she wanted to sleep among real birds at her Woodside, California home.

Looks like a bad month to be a moonbat. If I were a fired liberal congressman or one of the newly unemployed staffers making that sad ride home from Washington, I would steer clear of 60's rock star estates run by windmills or solar power. As the Tea Party continues to rise, you might dump those granola futures and start investing in beef on the hoof.
