Bad news for Obama

The World's Worst Band(TM) is back together!

The Grateful Dead, the San Francisco cult rock band that has played at political events since the 1960s, will reunite on Monday for the first time in four years to rally support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, a spokesman said on Friday.
Band leader Jerry Garcia died in 1995. Surviving members have played together occasionally since then, most recently in 2004. On Monday, original members Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir will play at a San Francisco theater a day before California's primary.
"They have agreed to reunite for this one-time-only event in order to lend support to Senator Obama leading into the crucial 'Super-Tuesday' series of primaries held on Tuesday, February 5th," the band said in a statement.
I have always considered the Grateful Dead proof positive that LSD causes brain damage. No one with an intact cerebral cortex could imagine that they were ever any better than adequate, and yet for years people followed them across the country -- a Cult of Mediocrity.

I hesitate to call the Dead has-beens, for that would be to suggest they ever were. News that these no-talent geezers are reuniting in support of Obama suggests that a Hillary comeback may be just around the corner.

    A. This music sucks!
