In the wake of the stunning news — broken here first! — that Barack Obama hates white people and John McCain eats puppies, I have another urgent matter to bring to your attention concerning the three-legged race to the White House. And this actually has to do with music. And local music at that!

On Tuesday, November 4 — that would be Election Night — local favorites The Dirty Blondes are throwing a ballot box stuffing, mud slingin', baby kissin' extravaganza of potentially epic proportions. Dubbed "Exit Poll '08" the evening promises to be more political fun than a Minneapolis Airport men's room. Though there are still loads of details in the works, here's the lineup so far:

The Dirtminers
Alice Austin
Cccome?
Hot Neon Magic
Party Star
Blowtorch
James Kochalka
Nose Bleed island
Fish

In honor of this stirring tribute to democracy, I urge you to check out this clip from Saturday's episode of SNL featuring Tina Fey as Sarah Palin — because NBC are a bunch of corporate stooges, I can't embed the video. Trust me, it's worth your time.

God bless America (and The Dirty Blondes).
