Congresswoman Quotes The White Stripes (Video)


Democrat Congresswoman Donna Edwards is such a huge White Stripes fan that she invoked their lyrics to try and prevent the shutdown of the federal government this past weekend. The band might not be a going concern anymore, but their music clearly has miraculous properties that President Obama may want to consider tapping into during his re-election bid. Edwards quoted a passage from the band’s “Effect and Cause” from Icky Thump as a way of speaking to her Republican colleagues. "You learn this White Stripes lesson first,” she says. Check out Edwards’ speech above and the original song below. [via The Modern Age]
