Oh dear, oh dear

Writing about web page http://youtube.com/watch?v=o762HKxYMeA

This is the funniest online video I've seen in ages. It works on so many levels.

The band The Right Brothers have put together this clever little ditty entitled 'Bush Was Right', sticking it to the lefties of us who think the war in Iraq (not to mention the entire Bush administration) has been a sham.

Firstly, the song-writing is brilliant. Think school-playground taunt, but a bit more childish.

Secondly, these guys are so naive you almost want to go and give them a hug and tell them everything will be OK eventually. They've picked up on this bizarre impression that 1) the American economy is great and the war in Iraq is going brilliantly and 2) it's all because of Bush.

Thirdly, they're like a fat, right-wing, Green Day, albeit with less talent.

You won't regret downloading this one…

    France… wrong!

    You can't argue with well thought out political satire like that can you? If only right-wing Americans had a sense of irony that could have been a joke song. Sadly not.

  7. It's like a po-faced America, Fuck Yeah! and is almost as funny.
