Silly Season – Politics

Posted by shanoah on August 2, 2008

Yep. It is that season again. And the war on Iraq was “fucking stupid“. On the Other Hand, if it’s the silly season, where’s the silliness? And music has been a consistant theme, so where’s the music?

Well, I thought I’d provide a bit of both. Like Sean, I’m probably far left. It is worth noting that if you are outside of the US this is considered “slightly left of center”. There are no main real left-wing parties in the US.

And, unfortunately, I’m likely to vote for Obama, despite being very upset at him for voting yes on telecom immunity.

Anyways, politics brings out song parodies, and pro and con songs for both candidates, and I thought I’d play a few.

Today, I’m going with pro.

So here’s a pro Obama song. Sort of. On acid:

Barack OBollywood

Silly pictures of Obama aside, this song is “Chori Chori Gori Se”, being sung by Jimi Mistry.

Now an interlude, to remind us of our present leadership:

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Bush sings (sort of) U2. This is a brilliant piece of editing.

I suppose I should have something pro McCain here, for fairness:

Who’ll Stop McCain?

You know, now that I’ve played this, I’ll have to play something more firmly pro-Obama then O’Bollywood. Wish I could have found something as out there for McCain. But then, he’s decidedly boring.

Ever notice that anything for McCain *has* to badmouth other candidates, though?

And don’t worry, I’ll do a post of anti songs at some point…
