Red And Yellow “Lose Lindsey” Rap

We were fully prepared to hate the “Red and Yellow” rap produced on behalf of the anti-Lindsey Graham website LoseLindseyGraham.com. “Prepared to hate,” we say, not because we have any affinity for Graham (obviously that’s not the case) but because politically themed raps strike us as ridiculous. Especially if sung…

We were fully prepared to hate the “Red and Yellow” rap produced on behalf of the anti-Lindsey Graham website LoseLindseyGraham.com.

“Prepared to hate,” we say, not because we have any affinity for Graham (obviously that’s not the case) but because politically themed raps strike us as ridiculous. Especially if sung by white people not named Eminem.

This one is actually pretty good, though.

Produced by the Republican Liberty Caucus, the “Red and Yellow” rap (named for the color of the “Lose Lindsey” yard signs the group is mass producing) hits Graham on some of the themes we’ve been highlighting over the last few months.

“He don’t care about the middle class,” the lyrics go, referring to Graham’s repeated support for tax hikes.

And on the subject of Graham’s support for a failed global interventionist foreign policy, the rhetoric is even more aggressive … and accurate.

“Let Lindsey fight his war with the human cowards on the same side as those who brought down the towers,” the lyrics go, referring to Graham’s insistence that America invade Syria on behalf of rebel forces affiliated with the terrorist network al-Qaeda.

Seriously … not bad.

In fact our only complaint is the song doesn’t delve deeper into Graham’s litany of failings – including his questionable military service claims and unwavering support for the federal government’s domestic spying network.

The “Red and Yellow” rap isn’t a hit with everyone, though.

According to establishment “Republican” website GOPWrite.com, the rap is “extremely offensive and is NSFW.” The website also blasts the Republican Liberty Caucus as a “racist libertarian group.”

Mmmmm-kay …

Three challengers – Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and S.C. Sen. Lee Bright – are already running against Graham.

Others may enter the race …

Graham has a massive campaign war chest – which he is using to build his own center-left army within the GOP in an effort to avoid having to win over increasingly skeptical Republican primary voters.

TBG, as of now is, also primarily for Nancy Mace. If Miss Lindsey beats his GOP challengers, TBG will be generally against Lindsey Graham.

EXACTLY, my friend!!!! Same here. I don’t care if Jim Clyburn is his opponent, I will vote for his strongest opponent after the primaries.

The GOPwrite.com bunch are nothing more than a bunch of Lindsey Graham jock sniffers and apologists for him and other RINO’s like pseudo-gun rights “proponent” Mike Pitts from Laurens and Greenwood counties.

The Republican Liberty Caucus looks like the libertarian wing of the Republican Party. Seem to have some reasonable suggestions.

How ironic. The most rabidly conservative and racist part of the Republican party, the tea-nut wing that wants rid of Lindsey Graham, is hijacking an African American music genre to help them in their reactionary cause. As in Virginia, women are seeing that the Republican party is filled with racist, bigoted, homophobic, and angry white men, something that blacks figured out a long time ago.

At least you kept it under 20 lines of script this time, kudos.

I hope the contenders refrain from attacking each other. If they spend their money individually against Graham they will be more effective and force him to respond/spend more fighting the several. If they fight each other he need only spend money fighting the lead dog. Strength in numbers, hit him together and hard.

I can imagine a debate with Ms. Lindsey and 4 other candidates vying for his seat, one of the four might chirp up at the appropriate time:

“While the other candidates and myself may have some disagreement in specific areas of policy, I think all of us but one here can agree that that SC’s representation has not been true to the ideals of SC people- and that needs to change.”

Seriously, I can demagogue with the best of them.

:)

All of you should pray that I’m never motivated to sell out and collect big checks for putting sociopathic assholes into power. If a gayfish like Wes can do it, surely I could make millions upon millions doing it and then go live in Malta, Montecarlo, etc. and tell everyone to kiss my ass.

I totally agree with you. If the challengers want to stand a chance, they all need to attack Graham, and LEAVE EACH OTHER ALONE. If they start in-fighting, they’ll let Lindsay coast to a victory in the primary.

By all means get rid of the Senator with seniority and replace him with a fucking tea party turd who will have zero influence and will be just another fucking tea party douche shit on by mainstream repukes.

You fucking idiots really are clueless and deserve being last in the nation in everything that matters. The political ignorance itself is astounding but pushing teafucks for office when they have no plan but obstruction that will further put South Carolina into the shithole it so deserves is truly beautiful.

GO TEA PARTY!! GIVE SOUTH CAROLINA THE ASSFUCKING IT DESERVES!!

johnq,

They have this thing called “the internets”.

You can watch us “assholes crash and burn” from lovely, sub-tropical, coastal, effing Ohio.

For realz.

All of our interstates run BOTH ways.

“Our” (SC’s) interstates are filled with potholes and crumbling bridges and worse – I would not recommend them to anyone – but I do get your drift, TBG.

This wagon didn’t end up in the quicksand by rolling down a hill. A bunch of lead horses (read – political leaders) pulled us here and now mull around while we try to get the wagon out of the quicksand. They could help pull the wagon out of the quicksand but as you can see by the last bunch of years they have NO inclination to do any such thing, so why not get rid of them and try someone else.

Who is really the idiot, here? I don’t worship at the temple of “who knows best how to game the system for themselves or to help someone at home in some small way the best”. Seniority is nothing more than a power trip for the elected and a way for them to set themselves up for better bribes and/or better high-paying jobs with some company they benefitted if the day should ever come when they are no longer a little god in DC.

This should be about what is best for our country and for our future and that of generations to come. I used to gag when people in my home county elected and re-elected a corrupt old drunk to the Legislature, time and time again, because of his “seniority” and “what he could do for our county”. Mostly it was about what he could do for himself, including never being arrested for the numerous times he was stopped by state and local LE while totally sloshed.

Graham despises the taxpayer and American citizen. He is chomping at the bit to involve us in another war this country cannot afford, or worse yet, to have the US start WWIII. How is this in any way, a good thing?????
