While some have bemoaned the relative dearth of politically minded pop or rock music during the current presidential election campaign, Virginia-based pop band the Mockers have come up with an entry that should appease pop fans who also are political junkies.
The trio’s jangly, Beatles-esque song "Republican Girl" celebrates the band members’ appreciation for female GOP politicians such as Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann and TV commentators on Fox News and other outlets -- their smiling faces featured in dozens of quick clips culled from various newscasts cobbled together in a witty video. Sample lyric:
Every hair is always right in its place
A Miss America smile on a pretty face
They’re like a siren's call to the November race
Man they're looking good
Here's the video:
"It's a lighthearted ditty about how incredibly sexy all of the women we see from candidates all the way down to Fox News pundits are," says band member Robbie Rist.
