Sweet Jesus

Think Progress has a post up about a conservative organization’s campaign to get a song by the Nashville rock group The Right Brothers in rotation on MTV. The song’s title: “Bush Was Right.”

Here’s what the organization, called Right March, has to say on its website:

The youth in America are being LIED to by liberal politicians and the mainstream media… but we’ve come up with a GREAT way to get the TRUTH to them: MUSIC. The Right Brothers, a conservative music duo out of Nashville, has released a new song that does what needed to be done: it tells the TRUTH. Titled Bush Was Right, the song hits the listener with fact after fact after fact - but the tune is so catchy, and the music is so driving, you can’t help but sing along (especially on the chorus)! Will YOU help us to get this song in front of American youth?

And here are some sample lyrics from “Bush Was Right”:

Freedom in Afghanistan, say goodbye Taliban, Free elections in Iraq, Saddam Hussein locked up, Osama’s staying underground, Al Qaida now is finding out, America won’t turn and run, Once the fighting has begun, Don’t you know that all this means… Bush was right! Bush was right!

I highly recommend you give the song sample a listen. Who says conservatives can’t be cool?
