Republicans Try to Reach Young People With Lady Gaga (?!)
Speaking of song-stealing…
So, first of all, I have to admit I'm a little bit in love with Lady Gaga. I mean, we are talking about a woman who gave an interview in a Kermit the Frog pelerine and matching fascinator:
So I was admittedly a little shocked and disappointed when I saw the headline on CNN:
I mean, sure, it happens—Alice Cooper is a Republican, after all, but still. How could you, Lady Gaga?
Of course, if one actually bothers to read the article, one finds the headline is totes bullshit: GOP congressman Dave Reichert (R-Wanker) just used a video by some douche parodying one of Lady Gaga's songs ("Just Tax" instead of "Just Dance," ho ho ho) to "show his colleagues the video to encourage them to get young people involved using new media," because, according to his spokesperson, Reichert "wanted them to encourage the youth in their district, and share the message on a level that young people can relate to."
