“It has been ELEVEN days, Stephen,” Jon Stewart said during his January 31st guest appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, “Eleven. Fucking. Days. ELEVEN!” And then, looking into the audience and the camera, he stated what we were all experiencing, “The presidency is supposed to age the president, NOT the public.”

"Music and political activism have always been really tightly bound together throughout global history," said Ryan Harvey, the co-owner of Firebrand Records with Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) during the Rock Against the TPP Tour press call.

We’re going to do things a little differently this time around. More journalism, less blogging. Political Buzz will feature interviews, in-depth articles, and some investigation into where the candidates really stand on the issues. We’d like to be your one-stop shop for campaign information.

We wanted to know what all these people really stand for--so we found out. And we printed all the information in a nice neat chart for you to look at. That way you don't have to
spend nearly as much time as we did reading all the candidates' pages and voting histories.
