Alabama Attorney General Troy King's Elusive Dreams

This is a quick slideshow I was "inspired" to create after hearing Alabama Attorney General Troy King's unholy caterwauling in his "stirring" rendition of "My Elusive Dreams," which was brought to my attention by Loretta Nall.

After Alabama Attorney General King (a right-wing nutjob) suggested the Alabama Legislature toughen anti-sex toys laws (yes, that's what the chief law enforcement officer in Alabama is spending his time on), former Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Nall started a "Sex Toys For Troy" movement on the Internet...

Folks are sending the Attorney General sex toys in the hopes that AG King will loosen up a bit and maybe -- just maybe? -- concentrate on REAL crime.

The 30-second audio sample features Alabama Attorney General Troy King singing a "duet" with the late Johnny Cash. The song, "My Elusive Dreams," previously recorded by Tammy Wynette and David Houston and was recorded by Johnny Cash in 1984, according to liner notes included with the CD that King sent to friends. The song was written by Curly Putnam and legendary country music songwriter and producer Billy Sherrill. Sherrill and King met in 2007 at a birthday party for George Jones and the producer later sent a copy of Cash's version of "My Elusive Dreams" to the attorney general. In November, King, some friends and musicians wrote additional lyrics, according to the notes provided with the CD. He sang the new lyrics and the chorus, which a producer added to the Cash recording to become a duet.
