The political wit of Jeff Tweedy (with music too!)

Sometimes I think the Internet is the greatest invention ever, and sometimes I think it's the greatest waste of time in world history. 

But sometimes you can split the difference. You can listen to music and do other stuff at the same time. Plus, of course, the music can be pretty darn wonderful.

Tweedy's wry comments to the Washington, D.C. crowd in December, were pretty funny too, in the political context of the infamous "shellacking" the Democrats took in the midterm elections. 

"It's good to be back in D.C. I was here a few weeks ago, for the Rally to Restore Sanity. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Well, it worked for me — it restored my sanity. Somewhat."

The encore includes a wonderful version of Woody Guthrie's At My Window Sad and Lonely
