This "Game On" Song Supporting Rick Santorum Is a Comedy of Horrors
"...There will be justice for the unborn/ Factories back on our shores..."
Say what you will about Obama -- it is impossible to imagine the current president inspiring a song as terrifically awful as "Game On," which this Oklahoma group called First Love just released supporting the candidacy of Mr. Rogers' evil twin, Rick Santorum.
From the first line ("We've finally got a man who will stand for what is right") to the second ("We've got a man who understands that God gave the Bill of Rights") to the third ("Oh, there is hope for our nation again/ maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan"), "Game On" comes across like a cruel parody, or a bad joke. It can't be real, you think. Surely, this was penned by a cynical New Yorker with ties to Saturday Night Live, trying to make Santorum supporters look facile.
But no. It actually appears to be a cheerful, sincere song sung by a pair of Tulsa ladies endorsing a grinning bigot who wants to force his medieval values on their vaginas and the entire country. But they're so damn happy about it. They want you to stand up, and sing, people! Hope is here! Rick Santorum is running to save the world, return white males to their rightful position of omnipotence, and ensure that the nation's women are left free to cook, procreate, and write dopey folk songs!
View this terrifying glimpse of our eight-children-per-family future (and read its entire lyrics) after the jump.
Lyrics (original capitalization hilarity retained):
VS 1: GAME ON! Join the Fight We've finally got a Man who will Stand for what is Right
GAME ON! Victory's in Sight
We've got a Man who Understands that God Gave the Bill of Rights
Oh, there is Hope for our Nation again
Maybe the First time Since we Had Ronald Reagan
There will be Justice for the Unborn
Factories back on our Shores
Where the Constitution rules our land
Yes, I Believe... Rick Santorum is our Man!
GAME ON! He's got the Plan
To Lower Taxes, Raise Morale, To Put the Power in our Hands
GAME ON! Change is at hand
Faithful to his Wife and Seven Kids - He'll be Loyal to our land
Oh It's crazy, What's been slipping through our hands
When we the People are still supposed to rule this Land
