Little Lion Man “Profanes” CPAC?

Because “Republicans” think they’re rock stars, they blare pop music from loudspeakers at their public events … a trend which usually lasts until the artists are informed of the unauthorized use of their songs. Then they tell the politicians to knock it off … and the cycle repeats itself with…

Because “Republicans” think they’re rock stars, they blare pop music from loudspeakers at their public events … a trend which usually lasts until the artists are informed of the unauthorized use of their songs.

Then they tell the politicians to knock it off … and the cycle repeats itself with another artist.

Sound familiar? If you live in South Carolina, it should.

Anyway, in an effort to pump up the crowd at this week’s “Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)” in Maryland, event organizers cranked out the tune “Little Lion Man,” the debut single off of English folk rock band Mumford and Sons’ 2009 debut album.

Take a listen …

Great song? Absolutely …

According to our sources, though, the CPAC organizers blasting this tune neglected to omit the song’s chorus, in which lead singer Marcus Mumford croons “I really fucked it up this time.”

Ha!

In most radio edits of the song (a.k.a “conservative” versions), the word “messed” is substituted for “fucked” while in others the word “fucked” is removed altogether.

Not everyone heard the obscenity, but several who did weighed in on it.

“Fucking embarrassing,” one SCGOP operative said, ironically.

“A lot of people were looking at each other uncomfortably,” another noted, adding they liked the song but believed it’s unedited chorus was “inappropriate for (CPAC’s) audience.”

Frankly, we don’t find “F-bombs” offensive. Not only do we employ them upon occasion … we recently dropped one in a headline. Still, it’s funny to watch some “Republicans” squirm whenever they hear one.

Why wouldn’t Sanford get invited? Adultery never stopped Gingrich from staying in the good graces of the GOP.

By the time the “Contract with America” had been rammed through and Gingrich had begun to really focus on “the blue dress” and Slick Willie he was already universally reviled among mainstream conservatives and many Republicans. By the midterms, he was so reviled that he resigned.

He might be invited to stuff but it’s not because he’s in the good graces of anyone – it’s probably because he is a vindictive POS who thinks nothing of destroying anything or anyone he perceives to be an enemy.

It is very ironic that CPAC used the song at all since the chorus is: “But it was not your fault but mine/ and it was your heart on the line/ I really fucked it up this time/ didn’t I my dear, didn’t I my dear.” In fact the whole song is a very ironic choice or is it?

All the GREAT speeches coming out of the CPAC meeting…and FITS is fixating on some convoluted message related to a vulgar pop culture music group…
If you EVER questioned if FITS (and Sanford are) LIARS about who and what they are…Question no more…
The Speakers at CPAC are actually SAYING what FITS claims (but does not demonstrate) he espouses…yet he ran an IGNORANT columm by some Dumb@$$ Atheist, yesterday, who was criticizing Conservatives…
Par for the Course… and so FITS typical…

They like doing it (especially to the country and those that elected them) but don’t like saying it.
