Andrew WK will solve all of our problems

The guy’s whose debut album has the above cover, and whose first single – “Party Hard” – was featured in both an EA Sports Madden Football video game and a “Girls Gone Wild” video, pretty much perfectly states the proper way to approach politics.

OK, maybe it skews a tad cosmic for my tastes, but he’s basically 100% right about how you shouldn’t believe you have a monopoly on wisdom, that your opponents are usually not monsters who want to destroy all that you hold dear and that our tendency to reduce everything to your side vs. my side is toxic.

In hindsight, we should’ve probably known all along that the man who put out an album called “I get wet” knew what the fuck he was talking about.
