We’ve Got Trouble…

If the Obama White House can do country music, the GOP can do showtunes.

Via Politico’s Shenanigans column comes this video of Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) offering his own lyrics to the famous song from “The Music Man.” “With a ‘T’ that rhymes with ‘D’ and that stands for Democrat.”

I’m pretty sure that the GOP won’t have to worry about running afoul of copyright in this case, but given the vocal quality of this rendition, apologies may still be in order to the Meredith Willson estate.
