GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus has commented on the election of President Barack Obama to a second term Tuesday, saying that "it's about time that a different color took over." Speaking to Rock Hard Live before the band's concert last night (November 6) at Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California, Oderus said (see video below), "I'm fucking sick of white-ass, motherfucking rich people running this fucking country. I'm from Antarctica, but anyone could tell you the days of George Washington are way over. The United States Of America, as much as it is 'the land of the free and the home of the brave,' we did drop two atomic bombs on innocent people, we committed genocide on Native Americans and we built our economy up with slavery. And it's about time that a different color took over, I think. I think white people everywhere are very scared tonight, and I'm really stoked about that."
In a recent interview with the OC Weekly, Oderus stated about this year's presidential election, "I don't know if I want to vote. But I will vote, with my bronze sword. I can tell you that both candidates will be put to death at our show, and we will sew them into one that has the worst policies of both. Where we come from, there is no voting. We settle all of our differences with gladiatorial combat. I am not really backing this whole political process. The only reason we have politicians on our planet, is so they can be crucified. Everything is solved through wars. No debates, no campaigns, no stickers no ballot boxes, and no White House. And the only poll is a huge long pole made of scalding hot red iron."
