The Song That Keeps On Giving: 'Please Don't Vote for a Democrat'

First, Indecision 2008 posted the video and the song. It's called "Please Don't Vote for a Democrat." Yes, really. Simple, direct, and stupid. Before we jump in, the video for your viewing pleasure (and no, your computer isn't broken. you have to watch a guy on a tractor. for awhile. before the music ever starts. ever.)

As ChubbyChaser says:

As long as there are still fat Southern guys in cowboy hats and star-spangled button down shirts playing badass guitar solos on top of barns and stickin' it to the dirty liberals, my life has some meaning, goddamnit!
Then came the billboard:Yes, those are the Twin Towers. The same Twin Towers that I was forbidden from showing in my local newsroom whenever we did a story on 9/11 because "it was too hard on people." I wonder how Orlando news stations were able to cover the story if they can't show the video. Did they just cover up the towers and say, "Imagine back to 9/11."

From CNN:

Mike Meehan, a St. Cloud, Florida, businessman who paid to post the billboards in the Orlando area, said former President Clinton should have put a stop to Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda before 9/11. He said a Republican president would have done so.

"I believe 9/11 could have been prevented if we'd had a Republican president at the time," Meehan said Wednesday on CNN's "American Morning."

But Democrats and Republicans are saying Meehan shouldn't be using a 9/11 image to make a political point.

"This is a blatant exploitation of that terrible tragedy for political and, perhaps even worse, personal gain," Bill Robinson, the Orange County, Florida, Democratic Party chairman told CNN affiliate WFTV-TV in Orlando.

The song goes beyond the national security issue, ripping Democrats on taxation and energy issues, too.

"They want to take the money from the hard workin' man, and give it to the lazy folks that don't give a damn," Meehan sings.

Another verse takes on the oil issue.

"We're not fightin' for oil, we got plenty if we drill it," he sings.

The song's not a moneymaker, he said, just an effort to recoup some of what he's invested in the billboards.

A copy of the song on CD cost $5 on the Web site, and the site points out that Meehan can be hired to perform at a "concert, party, meeting or event."

I think Barack Obama should hire Meehan to sing at Mile High Stadium when he gives his acceptance speech in August. I wonder how sincere and brave Meehan would be in front of 75,000 dems.
