Classic Rock Revisited: Last one: You have come to America from England and you make your residence here. That gives you and a different view on things. I am wondering what you think of the upcoming Presidential election.
Lemmy: I better not give you my opinion on that because I would be arrested tomorrow. I think what you think; the man is a disaster. There is no one to replace him. The best bet is... I don't think there is a best bet. I think Americans are too trusting. You trusted Bush to do a good job and then he didn't do it. I don't think a lot of people want to admit they were wrong. America is ruled by extremes. You are either extremely violent or extremely open or extremely religious. It is never about just getting along with everybody. America has always been very assertive of itself because everyone is coming here from everywhere else. Now it is the most powerful nation in the world. It only takes one guy to misdirect that power. For you to go into Iraq is like going to Vietnam. Two thousand kids ain't coming home no more because Bush wanted the oil. Now he has the oil and gas prices went up. The prices are just getting jacked up while he is in office. I am sure he is getting plenty of money from that oil. I think all politicians are assholes. I remember back in 1966 when Harold Wilson got elected in England. I went to see him speak at the public square in Manchester. I remember thinking, "What a fucking liar." I noticed that there was nobody to vote for; there was only a guy to vote against. When you have to pick the lesser of two evils then that is not a good thing. You need to have someone you can believe and have someone who will vindicate that belief. Kennedy was the last good President. Looking back on it now, Clinton wasn't so bad. He is looking pretty good now. We all bitched when he was in there but we don't have room to bitch now.
Classic Rock Revisited: My biggest disappointment with Bill is that he could have got a lot better-looking chick than Monica Lewinsky.
Lemmy: Exactly, Kennedy was fucking Marilyn Monroe. I rest my case.
