It's tough not to be a little freaked out about the current state of U.S. politics and the economy. Yeah, lefties, the president is channeling Hoover rather than F.D.R., the G.O.P.'s dirty tactics have descended to new lows. It's hard to muster any enthusiasm whatsoever for a cack-handed, gormless party. Yeah, it's time for a boost- how about a song which kept me largely sane during the Bush administration? I blasted My Country by New Model Army while pounding the be-jeebers out of a heavy bag.
Yeah, we can't afford to be despondent. All of us have to make sure that there's no rest for the wicked, even those of us who are young, gifted, and skint. Courage, good people, courage!
UPDATE: Do I even have to tell you to blast this at full volume? For those of you unfamiliar with the song (SHAME!!!), the lyrics are straightforward- this one's an anthem, a chant.
