No one really seems like they know, so as your certified Young Person Correspondent I’m here to clear the air. Here’s the official list of everyone associated with the Dirtbag Left.

  • Dracula
  • Anyone who has thought about buying a sword
  • Anyone who has bought a sword but kept the receipt, “just in case”
  • Drifters
  • Nimue from Arthurian myth
  • Fruit that hasn’t rotted yet but looks a little iffy
  • The Wolfman, but only when he’s Benicio Del Toro*
  • Some sort of negative universe Newt Gingrich
  • Powerlifters
  • Power players
  • Powerman 5000
  • Nobunaga Oda, the Sengoku-era Daimyō
  • Susan Sarandon, obviously
  • Joe Biden on a dirtbike, and only when he’s on a dirtbike
  • The Bill from the Schoolhouse Rock song — he’s a single payer healthcare proposal
  • Judo practitioners

  • Zeppo Marx
  • Cybergoths
  • People who wear leather moto jackets with the asymmetrical zippers in spite of not owning a motorcycle
  • Nicolaus Copernicus
  • All members of Arcade Fire because they’ve gotten super weird and ironic now
  • Eddie Money, but only because he paid me to call him the “Father of the Dirtbag Left” so that’s what I’m doing

*This only holds true for Benicio Del Toro’s Wolfman. Lon Chaney Jr’s political affiliations are still unknown
