Relief. Elation! Cautious Optimism...


Okay, this is somewhat, but not entirely, off topic. We have finally rid ourselves of the Worst President Ever. I suppose "worst ever" might be debatable, but I think I can safely say the worst President of the last half a century. In fact I don't think there is any argument possible. It's going to take Obama a long time to clean up this mess both home and abroad, but at least we have a chance. I mean how long will it take to close Guantanamo, get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, establish diplomacy with Iran and/or North Korea, regain the trust of the rest of the world, restore the First Amendment, fend off another Depression, build an almost decent healthcare system... and the list goes on and on and on...

I don't even want to think how much further we would sink with a McBush/Palin administration. More tax breaks for the rich? Even more reckless bailouts for the very people who got us in this mess? Staying in Iraq for a century? A worse healthcare system? A Palin Presidency? And you thought The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was horror.

This isn't as off-topic as you may think. Buckethead is clearly not a Bush supporter; just listen to "Junior" on the Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains album or anything on "Intelligence Failure" with Viggo Mortensen. So, I think it's a safe bet to say Buckethead is pretty happy today.

Well. After a long confusing battle with the computer and this site, I'd like to say, I'm proud of myself for finding this page a second time. I wanted to attempt to ask a few questions, but I'm pretty sure they'd be better left unsaid. All in all, I'd have to say I agree with this article, and hope that the Bucketbots got to count in the election as well. ^_^

Kickass, my two favorite things: Buckethead and Politics.

I've not listened to the songs that you mentioned, but I will. I had always suspected that Buckethead was more liberal.
