Suddenly, Michael Steele is that much closer to Denzel

In February, I posted this challenge to conservatives:

Republicans must create one good song. Do whatever it takes. Get a liberal to write one for you. Hell, I'll do it, and not ironically, either. I just feel sorry for you guys for having to pretend that "Bush Was Right" and "Raisin' McCain" are passable songs. After all, what's the point of even having a big tent if "Barack the Magic Negro" can clear it out within seconds? Take a cue from your party's sudden interest in black people and visit a gospel church. Check out a concert in an arty city. Watch will.i.am videos on YouTube and take notes. You saw the Bruce Springsteen Super Bowl halftime show! Get a sense of the lyrical innovation and spirited delivery that all good music shares. You may be forced to think and dance, but roll with it anyway. After soaking that all in, sit down, set your talking points to a funky beat and get the best musicians who will cooperate to cut a slammin' phat beat. Only then will you create a masterpiece worth getting its funding cut.

Well, it looks like somebody finally embraced my call. Meet The Young Cons, winner of the Most Apt Name award of 2009. And 2010-2018. And probably after that, too. Straight outta Dartmouth! Please, Tom "Hammer" DeLay, don't hurt 'em! The only drive-by is the media. Word to GOP Jesus and His Mutha! Put yo hands in the air, wave 'em like you hate welfare! And other Republican rap corruptions of that sort.



(SPOILER ALERT: The best part kicks in at 3:38. Moment of silence, perhaps?)

After seeing this...my offer still stands. I'm already working on it.

Thanks for that one. I needed a good chuckle today.
