tell it like it is

I'll tell you what I know about musicians: very few of them are deep political thinkers. They may be amazingly talented at playing an instrument or writing songs, but VERY FEW could explain what a bicameral government is, name any five of the first ten Amendments to the Constitution (the fucking BILL OF RIGHTS) or speak articulately on the difference between a "republic" and a "democracy."

These are MUSICIANS, for crying out loud. Most of 'em don't know SHIT about anything but music. I like alice cooper's take on all the pro-Kerry slackwads:

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

And that's the truth, folks.

Yeah, Alice has the right idea, but you wouldn't be able to tell from listening to his show at night. The employee of the game shop I hang out at (instead of doing something worthwhile like working on my writing) plays his show at night. I stopped listening after the 3rd or 4th Bush-bashing statement in a row one night. Now I don't even pay attention.

Besides, I liked his earlier stuff anyways. He's old hat now.

Your mileage may vary. Great site BTW. Keep up the good work.

bicameral government . That's a government with two humps, isn't it?
