John McCain: Leader, Maverick, and Indie Rock Fan??
Tonight's debate featured McCain constantly playing the indie cred card against Obama by mentioning Joe Plummer. The Portland resident (finally Oregon matters in this election) is known for being one of the best drummers out there, having spent time behind the kit for the Magic Magicians, Black Heart Procession, and currently he drums for Modest Mouse. Now Plummer is at the center of the biggest election in history, and proof that McCain is flexing his sharpened knowledge of indie rock and courting the all-important (undecided) pretentious record collector demographic.
Too bad there isn't a bass player out there named Joe Sixpack.
