The Self-Righteous Brothers

It's side-splittingly hilarious, yet it makes me want to cry. Must be reactionary propaganda!

Conservative activist groups have big plans for the subtly-titled song 'Bush Was Right.' They're going to get a small group of people to demand over and over that MTV play the video for the tune. And if MTV doesn't play ball? They're going to call MTV mean names! Take that, liberal media!

At the same time, part of me trembles at the diamond-hard logic of the ditty. Just take a look at these lyrics and quail in the face of reason:

Ted Kennedy - wrong!
Cindy Sheehan - wrong!
France - WRONG!
Zell Miller - right! (. . .)

Bush was right!
Bush was right!
Bush was right!

Cheney was right, Condi was right,
Rummy was right, Blair was right
You were right, We were right, “The Right” was right
and Bush was right…
Bush was right!
Bush was right!

Zell Miller's a part... of my rock 'n roll faaan-tasyyyyy!
