The mobile mosh-pit

Here's one from the archives: During the 2000 Presidential race in the good, old, US of A (recently changed to "the God, old, US of A"), Michael Moore toured Iowa with the mobile mosh-pit, trying to get the Presidential candidates to jump in and surf in exchange for an official endorcement from Moore's show, the Awful Truth. There is some excellent footage of the Presidential candidates of the day with frozen smiles glued to their faces as they do their best to pretend that they are 'hip' and 'with-it', and one was even so 'hip' and 'with-it' that he phoned the cops. Then along came Republican Presidential candidate Alan Keyes. It took a little bit of persuading, but Mr Keyes took teh bull by the horns and, to the Rage Against The Machine tune, Guerilla Radio, he hopped into the pit and surfed like a pro.

Now that was pretty cool, I thought, and while I am not a citizen of the US of A, I decided then and there that had I been, Alan Keyes would have been in the top ten of those I would have voted for. It gets better though.

A few days later the Repbulican candidates had a debate in New Hampshire where candidate Gary Bauer attacked Keyes for taking part and moshing to "the Machine Rages On" who are, apparently, anti-family and pro-terrorist. This was news to me because I've been listening to RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE for some years now and those are messages that I have missed, so thanks Gary. You sound like a total dick, but thanks anyway.

Anyway... Humouroceros
