Who Needs Michael Moore?
Our not-so-great Communicator in Chief outdid himself today:
"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we," Bush said.

"They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
Truth will out, by George.

Mode: blissed or blessed?
Muse: Son Of Sam - Dead Boys

Oh yeah. Click on the link for the full story. I love McLellan's explanation too.

No doubt. I'm a Google News addict.

BTW, let me just say how much it impresses me that you can be an indie rock hipster and still go to bat for Bruce. I respect fidelity.

Indie rock hipster? Funny, never thought that about myself, though given the shows you've seen me at and musical conversations it shouldn't be a surprise. Guess I really snuck in the back door on that one. I grabbed on to Dylan and Springsteen pretty much in tandem when I was 14 or so (my dad's vinyl), went apeshit on the early, mostly acoustic, stuff of both guys. From there I 'spose you could trace the Byrds and Eagles (eh, everybody's got missteps) through to Uncle Tupelo and the Jayhawks and into more indie stuff. Or Jackson Browne and Van Morrison through maybe to Elliott Smith and the Smiths... and then again on to indie rock...
I'll go to bat for Bruce anytime:

And speaking of, I hadn't listened to Born in the USA for years and that album hasn't left my car stereo since the end of the convention... More from a 3-minute record indeed.

I was stretching a bit on the indie rock hipster bit, I suppose. But you're certainly hipper than I am, particularly with that cowboy hat!

Nice column from 2000, BTW.

I always loved the long line -- a la Whitman and Ginsburg -- of "No Surrender," how Bruce just keeps going without ever seeming to want or need a breath.
