Frank Zappa is taking the 1988 elections head-on during his current concert tour. The activist has arranged a voter registration campaign in each city his band will visit, and Zappa is taking special aim at Republican hopeful Pat Robertson. "We're not going tell you who to vote for," said Zappa before the opening night show in Albany, N.Y. "But we will tell you who not to vote for." The Albany show also included an impromptu poll of the audience. "I'll state the name of the candidate, and you make whatever noise you feel appropriate," he told the crowd. All of the Republican and most of the Democratic candidates elicited hearty boos, with the loudest negative response triggered by George Bush.
