How many former George W. Bush ambassadors have gone on to record their own rock videos
Meet Thomas Schweich, who's running for state auditor in Missouri, but who used to have what sounds like a pretty important job at the end of the last Bush administration: coordinator for counternarcotics and justice reform in Afghanistan.
Now he's letting his hair down for a conservative-themed rock song that he penned the lyrics for (there's some dispute over whether he lifted the song from another what you might call real
rock act, but let's not let that distract from the fun) and a companion music video
Some of the best lines:
Bailouts and debt,
They got me feelin' dissed,
Sellin' out my son,
To Chinese Communists.
We don't bow,
To hateful foreign kings.
We don't apologize,
And we don't kiss their rings.
A must-watch Friday afternoon time-killer.
