Moe Tucker, Tea Partier??

You kind of need to fear for humanity when a member of the hippest band in history joins the ranks of the most misinformed, misguided political movement anyone has ever seen. But alas, Maureen “Moe” Tucker, drummer for legendary 60’s punk progenitors The Velvet Underground, inimitable “After Hours” vocalist, iconoclastic sporter of a tomboy haircuts, and — most important of all — Patron Saint of Amateurish Female Drummers (without whom The White Stripes would not begin to exist) has been spotted on a local Georgia newscast, alongside fellow Tea Party members at a Tax Day rally, voicing her displeasure at what she perceives to be an American people “being led towards Socialism.”

Sigh.

To hear Moe, skip to 2:40 in the video below. Thanks to Pitchfork for the scoop. For more information on how the current administration represents nothing even remotely close to Socialism, check out this podcast.
