Last night as I was driving home, surfing radio stations, I heard the new Kid Rock/Martina McBride song, Care. My ears are still bleeding. The lyrics are the perfect liberal anthem:
Cuz’ I hear screamin on the left
Yellin on the right
I’m sitting in the middle tryin’ to live my life
Cuz’ I can’t stop the war
Shelter homeless, feed the poor
Can’t walk on water
I can’t save your sons and daughters
I can’t change the world and make things fair
The least that I can do,
The least that I can do
The least that I can do is Care
(Ooohh ohh… ooooh… yeahh… uh huh)

Yeah, caring is the least one can do – the very least. This is why liberalism is the perfect religion. There’s no right action involved, all you have to do is care, have good intentions, think about how pious you are.
I had to quickly turn it off and jam an Oingo Boingo CD into the player to do a musical detox (their Alive album, which has two great conservative songs – Only a Lad and Capitalism). I’m still feeling a bit shaky, but think I’ll recover.
