About That Huge Obama Rally in Oregon…
You know that huge crowd that turned out for Obama in Oregon? What many media reports forgot to mention: Obama was immediately preceded by a free concert by a very popular band.
That band, The Decemberists, is known for using the National Anthem of the Soviet Union as an introduction at their concerts. I’m just sayin’.

Reached for comment, Barack Obama didn’t state:
This whole notion that … uh … you can smear me and my kids by associating me with my associations with bands who … uh … associate themselves with the Soviet Union, who had the power to destroy the world 57 times, is … uh … offensive, and … um … not helpful when I’m just trying to unite this country with a message of hope and change. And change. Now lay off, sweetie. I’m trying to finish my arugula.
