Here in New York, today is a major election day – it’s the primaries for several important citywide offices for both parties. And it seems the general sense among New Yorkers is that all of the candidates running for office are a bunch of barely competent clowns.
With politics on our minds, the release of the official video for Western Medication’s “Problems in DC” seemed absolutely fitting. The official video blistering satirizes some of the major political figures of the past 40 years or so – you’ll see Richard Nixon leading a flock of sheep; Mitt Romney and Dick Cheney in an absurd body building contest; a Condoleeza Rice who shoots a missile from between her legs, and even a cross-dressing George W. Bush. Sure they lambast national figures but the sense of disgust and ridicule is still the same.
