Chip: "I guess I'm a little surprised that anyone in liberal Larryville would mind. According to many in Forttt Scottt, Larryville children are required to kiss Obama's picture each day as they enter the building and swear a socialist oath each afternoon."
Let's take a look at the LJ-World message board to get a (presumably) non-satirical conservative take on the controversy, which we'll quote here at length.
"ok I got the opt out letter today for my son and I say ok i figured if my whole country voted for him then can he be that bad it seems like everybody had bummper stickers and wanted him as president but I am starting to fell like they didnt want him as a president they just wanted him cause they wanted to finnelly have a color person cause from most post on this they dont like him why vote for him if you dont like his belives and before you tear me down i didnt vote at all I didnt think any one of them had my belives I am a christen and dont believe in abortion or gay or other thinks he believed in I only believe in the bible and what it says."
Chip: "Most people in Forttt Scottt also do not believe in 'abortion' or 'gay.'"
It's a happy day for Larryville hipsters, as Pitchfork has given a (more or less) positive "track review" to Chomp Womp recording artists Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk's song "Train Fuzz":
"Here we have a specimen from a band from Lawrence, Kansas, called Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk (uh…) that appears as embryonic My Morning Jacket. We get some doleful guitar and unintelligible vocals crying out from the womb, like a cat on the porch muffled from the inside drywall..."Train Fuzz" is such an appealing slice of sound, it's almost as if songwriting would spoil the effect."
Richard: "You better get there early for the next BBDDM show because the hipsters are going to be out in force now."
Chip: "The vocals of all local bands sound to me like a muffled cat. Nice description."
Cl.thier: "Am I the only motherfucker here who thinks songwriting is important?"
