George Bush Sings
June 9, 2005 9:30 PM   Subscribe

George Bush sings (MP3 contains swearing) and shows how he imagines the world should be. Now that John Ashcroft has left the administration it was clearly time for someone else to step up and lead the vocals. There's more info at Wax Audio.

Wow, that was much better than I expected.
What a labor of love hate?

Is there anything that we can be spared?

I think it's great. Maybe he'll hear it one day and get confused and have a nervous breakdown.

Even being a pragmatic sometime conservative voting cynic imagine gives me chills and this version still does and amuses and disturbs me.

Poignant. If only.

That was excellent. People are getting better and better at this kind of thing. I'm looking forward to the Dick Cheney version of "the real slim shady".

I was prepared to hate it when I realized what it was. But then I was so impressed with the little flourishes in it that I forgot to. That's awesome!

I feel silly because it gave me a lump in my throat. I'm hopeless.

what mayor curley said. I've heard these before, & was disappointed it wasn't a real john ashcroft moment, but that was just really nicely done.

Kinda reminds me of that "Always Wear Sunscreen" thing....

Hmmm -- I assumed the link pointed to This Version which I think is better. Strange that there's multiple versions of this floating around.

Awesome.

I think it was really nice, if only the person singing it would just get a friggin clue . . .
Of course I had to send it out to all my friends.

Irony, Super-Sized.

That "and, uh" before "I hope some day you will join me" is beautiful.

Yeah, I really wanted to not like this, for about 8 different reasons, but it's pretty amazing. Cut's through the irony fat layers and actually kind of hurts. Thanks.
