3 Chords & the Truth: Debtpocalypse Now
Call me Nero -- I don't care.
Yes, the tea party is nuts, and insanity is totally a contagious thing in Washington.
Yes, because of this -- and because of America's political dysfunction being turned up to 11 -- we have become the Dysfunctional States of America.
Yes, we're pretty much screwed, and we're sitting here in the studio waiting on Debtpocalypse Now.
And, yes, we at 3 Chords & the Truth are going to -- so to speak -- fiddle while Washington burns. What the hell else are we supposed to do?
APART, of course, from sending the cast of Swamp People to the District and having them set lines all around the Capitol, baiting the hooks with $100 bills.
Unfortunately, we here at the Big Show have no sway over Louisiana alligator hunters (And that John Boehner kinda looks like a "tree shaker," doesn't he?) despite having hailed from the Gret Stet. So there we are, back at Square One.
With the music . . . and you.
And we're just going to have to make the best of it, cheering ourselves up with some excellent tunage. It's the American Way.
SO I'M rosining up the bow, boys, and we'll march off to the poor house with a song in our hearts. And with the swampers doing that voodoo that they do among the reptiles on Capitol Hill.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
