All Politics Should Be Like This

Kathy Mitchell of Consumers Union was kind enough to tell me about an extremely funny song that's part of their campaign for a more sane prescription drug policy. It's by the Austin Lounge Lizards, with a video put together by The Animation Farm.

Believe me, I'm not cutting the song any slack because I agree with its political perspective. In my snotty opinion, not much political humor of any orientation is truly funny. But this is! You should check it out.

dont mind me, I'm just riffling through your archives. Good to hear the Austin Lounge Lizards putting another good one out there. Do you remember "Jesus loves me but he can't stand you"?

Don't be bringing your kids over to my house to play
I'm raising my kids in a righteous way
Yours'll grow up stoned and liberal and gay
I know. Jesus told me on the phone today
