With the news going to hell in a handbasket lately, I was in serious need of a pick-me-up this weekend. Which is why I want to send a special Hope n' Change shoutout to Rick Bacon, star of Spike TV's show "Musclecar."
Rick is an insanely talented artist who turns powerful cars into works of art...and in this weekend's "Altered E-Go" episode (which my TIVO oddly claimed was shot in 2007), viewers watching closely got an eyeful of Rick's awesomely manly limited-edition Hope n' Change wristwatch in a number of close-up shots!
I'm not sure how many of Muslecar's viewers were subliminally converted into conservatives because, frankly, I can't imagine there are many liberals who have enough testosterone to be tuned in. But it was great fun to see the wristwatch on the air and get a much-needed laugh.
By the way, here's Rick's amazing paintjob on the '64 Comet that became "Altered Ego"...
