Stephen Malkmus Takes Down A “Senator”

Next to my own personal ’90s rock God Evan Dando, Stephen Malkmus of Pavement comes a close second. “Senator,” the new video from Malkmus and his band The Jicks, features Jack Black as corrupt Senator Danner, up for re-election, but equally pulled toward a steady diet of cocaine and cattle prods (aren’t we all?).
