Not designed to make the right wing look stupid (video)
A couple of conservative "musicians" calling themselves "The Right Brothers" are petitioning MTV to get them to play the as yet unmade "'kickin' music video" to a song they've recorded called "Bush Was Right!".
Nico has some of the lyrics which, he assures us, are "not a parody":
Freedom in Afghanistan, say goodbye TalibanMSNBC's Keith Olbermann has given them a head start by creating a video for them and comments [VIDEO]:
Free elections in Iraq, Saddam Hussein locked up
OsamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s staying underground,
Al Qaida now is finding out
America wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t turn and run
once the fighting has begun
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t you know that all this meansÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Bush was right! Bush was right!
"Hey, if you're gonna make propaganda music you gotta make it good. And to answer a couple of questions, no it's not a spoof designed to make the right wing look idiotic, and yes they do really think they can get it shown on Total Request Live on MTV and if they don't it will be for political reasons and not because the song sucks."
"And no, neither Country Joe and the Fish, nor even the Backstreet Boys apparently have anything to worry about."(ThinkProgress; video via Crooks and Liars)
