That fact doesn't provoke a knee-jerk reaction in me, but you can't escape considering that it's unlikely that someone like Meghan McCain only listens to the song for the music. The song's lyrics are too outstanding to ignore. Thus, all the doubts as per whether Meghan is a closet leftie or immune to sarcasm are pretty legitimate in my book.

Did anyone say that she was not allowed to listen to Stereolab? i think the debate is on whether she understands it or not...

Hmm...I sort of suspect her blog is actually being ghostwritten by some tuned in hipster, (so many obscure remixes,) and this was slipped in there without her knowledge.

Yay torture! Maybe since all conservatives love torture, maybe the lyrics about bloody wars being all right really get them off. That must be it.

Yeah, she's probably all like:

"You go pops, tell' em! SHUT UP! SIT DOWN!" etc

Sounds like you're stereotyping and generalizing about people to me. I thought they were talking about the lyrics in that song and what she might have thought of them. And I wonder... what do you think of Laetitia's lyrics?

tbh Laetitia's lyric's sound like they've been written by a 5 year old who's read about America.

What? Why do you think that? What songs are specifically about America? She references "society" a lot.

funny, laeticia actually talked about this on stage in nyc (final show, 10/4). couldn't make out what she was saying other than "meg-an mc-cain... blog..."

i guess someone in the band reads pitchfork? or maybe martin, being the awesome manager he is, reads all of their press?
