I went to see World Party a couple nights ago here in Seattle. The band sounded great and I was especially touched because the band's leader Karl Wallinger had suffered a brain aneurysm a little over a decade ago and had to learn how to play music all over again. As far as I could tell, he's still a great musician!

Dear Republican Party: I know you're hurting right now. Can I offer a small piece of advice? You need to stop hanging out with the right-wing entertainment cartel. They might have been helpful at one time, supplying a certain kind of energy. But this past election shows the majority of the country's population is too smart to fall for the hate talk, conspiracy peddling and veiled racism these people vomit out day after day. Rush Limbaugh dislikes everybody who isn't white, married and over 50 years old. Sean Hannity will be talking about Benghazi until election day 2016. And they all talk about Ronald Reagan so much it's starting to border on some kind of weird political necrophilia. You want people to think you're serious about changing? Cut these clowns loose.

After the election was over I figured it was time for Democrats to stop picking on Mitt Romney. But then this past week he once again forgot that humans have recording devices and made a speech basically accusing the president of using bribery to win the election. So, apparently his mea culpa about the 47 percent speech was just as worthless as all those opinions he once held about healthcare, climate change, gay rights and a woman's right to choose.

We've all heard about people in the Red states threatening to secede. Maybe it's time people in the Blue states considered kicking them out.

Love the new Shoes album. This is a band that I first heard about in college, clear back in the late 70's/early 80's. Awesome power pop, reminds me of Cheap Trick and Fountains of Wayne in spots. One of the highlights is "Hot Mess", a totally great Stones rip-off.
Jon Stewart had an interesting conversation with Mike Huckabee last night about the GOP's trouble reaching out to minority voters. Stewart used the example of the Fox News election day hysteria over the fact there was one New Black Panther standing around in front of a polling place in Philadelphia. It's toward the end of the first segment...

Wow, someone forgot to drink their Kool-Aid this morning. What a wonderful instance of economic honesty.
