Obama has some explaining to do

A Grateful Dead reunion tour? I’d rather have Larry Summers at the economic helm for 1,000 years than listen to this. Could there be any worse attempt at music than this? Boooo-ring, with or without Jerry Garcia. Stoner music never registered with me and it remains a mystery why anyone liked it. My theory is that nobody really likes it but are afraid to admit that they don’t like it.

He’s still got a little work to do on the economy, but already President Barack Obama has accomplished at least one task that had appeared all but impossible just a year ago: He’s put The Dead back on the road.

As the core surviving members of the Grateful Dead, once the world’s biggest concert draw, barrel across the country for the first time in five years, bass player Phil Lesh says they have Obama, and also Lesh’s youngest son, Brian, to thank.

Even if I got high, there’s no way I could stay awake for this complete rot. Thank god punk shoved this rubbish out the door and re-introduced music with a purpose.
