Retro Origins of a Horse's Name

The rock group America tiresomely sang about riding the desert with an anonymous horse. Was that a terminal case of procrastination on the horse's owner or parents?* 

Now there's Limousine Liberal, a horse with a funny name.

A limousine liberal tends to talk a good game of supporting liberal causes while being largely exempt from their impact. Specifically, they support environmental causes while using limousines or private jets, or ostensibly supporting public education while sending their children to private schools or Ivy League universities. 

This year, the winner of the Churchill Downs Stakes was a five-year old gelding horse named Limousine Liberal. It is not known whether this unfortunate horse supports liberal causes but is unaffected by them. It is also not known what are the politics of its owner.

This is not like a charley horse.

Poor Charley. Is he doomed to ride the M.T.A. also?




*I change stations with this one on WMTY.

I loved the reference to the MTA! I wonder how many others will get it ...

I'd never heard the term Limousine Liberal before. Apparently Latte Liberal also.

I also would change the station.

I had to look up the M.T.A. lyrics. That dummy should stick a dime in the sandwich.

The MBTA in Boston has a "Charlie Card." so Charlie can get off the MBTA.

...ostensibly supporting public education while sending their children to private schools or Ivy League universities... Oh I know the type. I know them VERY wel, unfortunately.
