I am reposting this not because the video accompanying the song is especially good, but because the parody of the famous Sam Cooke song is cleverly and precisely executed and the ridicule of the current state of the Republican side of American politics is healthy and appropriate. The continuing failure of the GOP to find serious, quality candidates is astounding – and worrying for all those who may not be on their side of politics, but who believe that the survival of democracy rests on both good government and a principled, healthy opposition.

Enjoy, whatever you think of the politics.

“Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions.”
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp, 30 July, 1816
