ANA MARIE: Well, if all we get out of an Obama loss is a heart-wrenching new album from The National, at least I’ll be able to mourn to a good soundtrack.
JASON: SO TRUE.
ANA MARIE: Man, all the great work the despairing pro-Obama musicians could produce… versus, what, Kid Rock crying?
JASON: This campaign is basically BLOODBUZZ, OHIO.
ANA MARIE: “I still owe money to the money to the money I owe.”
JASON: I will be wearing my Bloodbuzz Ohio shirt on election night. There’s no better crash years anthem than that.
ANA MARIE: I do sort of love that The National campaigns for Obama, because their stuff really gets people hopeful, right?
JASON: Right! GET PUMPED, HERE’S THE NATIONAL!!!
ANA MARIE: They play music like he’s already lost.
JASON: They play music like everyone’s already lost.
ANA MARIE: I do love the massive “indie rockers for Obama” movement. Mac McCaughan is basically meeting with Axelrod daily at this point.
JASON: Sadly, I think Obama lost Conor Oberst. Though Oberst is kind of the Buzz Bissinger of indie rock.
ANA MARIE: “Horses and Bayonets” is a clear play for the Decemberists."my favorite election conversation yet, more here
