Thumbing through the rag, I came across an interview with Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie. The one song I could think of by the band was Soul Meets Body, which I thought was an OK tune, so I read the column. The inevitable deranged leftist political comment came about two thirds in:
"After the 2004 election, I was a fucking mess. I think that if we could survive another four years of that administration, we can survive anything."So, let me get this straight. According to Gibbard, living through the Bush administration has been more trying than, say, the Revolutionary War, the American Civil War, World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, and 9/11. Guess what, Ben? You're still a fucking mess, and a drama queen to boot.
Pardon me...I've got to go clean up some dog crap. I can read about the Alison Krauss/Robert Plant tour on the Internet. For free.
