White Stripes quoted by US Congresswoman Donna Edwards
[b]The White Stripes[/b]' 2007 song [b]'Effect And Cause'[/b] has been used in a speech by US [b]Democratic Congresswoman[/b] [b]Donna Edwards[/b] to chide opposition politicians.
[b]Edwards[/b] quoted lyrics from the song after saying it was "a lesson to our [b]Republican[/b] colleagues". She was speaking in a debate about the possible closure of the US federal government last week, reports The Telegraph.
She referenced the song by telling [b]Congress[/b]: "If you're heading to the grave, you don't blame the hearse."
[b]Edwards[/b] then added: "You seem to forget just how this song started. You just can't take the effect and make it the cause."
A shutdown of the federal government was temporarily avoided on April 8, as the [b]Republicans[/b] and [b]Democrats[/b] came to an agreement over the matter with just two hours to go before deadline.
