The song, apparently, is actually about David Geffen.

Ishkur: one of the last century's many pilgrims from the left to a kind of libertarianism

"If you're a Conservative when you're 20 you have no heart. If you're a Liberal when you're 40 you have no brain."

I heard a surprising quote from LBJ along the same lines, but about being a communist in one's youth. (I can't recall it well enough to Google it.)

It's hard to recall much of what LBJ said, he was usually pounding his massive wang against the nearest inanimate object while talking. Thump. Thump. Thump.

it was something like "if you've never been in jail or a Red by your 20s, I don't have any use for you."

LBJ on a White House recording of him ordering up some pants over the phone :

Now the pockets, when you sit down, everything falls out, your money, your knife, everything, so I need at least another inch in the pockets. And another thing - the crotch, down where your nuts hang - is always a little too tight, so when you make them up, give me an inch that I can let out there, because they cut me, it's like riding a wire fence.

I rather doubt that the modern American progressive has much in common with the 1920s Soviet left. The Buckley-style conservative has about as much in common with the 1930s German right. If only the current "conservative" movement were more Buckley and less Bannon.
