He's a Loser

Hey, what do you know? President Job has dropped back down to his all-time ratings low. I think they call this recidivism.

In other news, boy, was Lollapalooza exhausting, with only a handful of great sets from bands I expected to be great (Broken Social Scene, Manu Chao, Sleater-Kinney), a couple of surprises (Iron & Wine rocking out, Peeping Tom), and mostly by the numbers sets from acts that may as well have been playing Anyclub, USA.

One weird exception to the whole weekend was Patti Smith, who showed up to play a three song acoustic set at the kids tent, of all places, and chose that venue to rail against US made bombs killing kids in Lebanon and dead bodies lying in the street.

"Mommy, mommy! Patti Smith is in my closet and she's trying to get me!"
