This video is a good representation of the 96,759 Oklahomans who voted for Rick Santorum

Have you ever wondered what would happen if two chaste coeds from a large family of missionaries in Tulsa wrote a Lilith Fair-inspired folk song about Rick Santorum? I thought so. The answer is this inspirational song and music video by the Harris sisters:

You know, that’s really not too bad of a song. I think they hit all the cliché Republican talking points pretty well. They even added some new ones like that line about “God creating the Bill of Rights.” Because you know, God’s always been against the quartering of soldiers.

If anything, I’m disappointed by some of the Santorum tidbits the sisters left out of the tune. We know Rick’s going to protect the constitution and the rights of the unborn and all that other stuff, but why didn’t they sing a verse about the time he and his wife took their stillborn child home to cuddle with their kids and pose for some family pictures? Or maybe something about how he doesn’t want everyone to be snobby and go to college? That would have made the song better.

Anyway, if you want to learn more about the naïve sisters, including fun facts like how they’ve never had cable, attended public schools, and like bananas, visit their website.

  1. Ogle,
    knock off the talk about Santorum and his family and how they grieve for the loss of their little boy.
    You want to nail him on the issues… go for it. That is your right….. but the comment about the way they delt with the loss of their son is not odd or abnormal. There are actually photographers that will provide their services to families free of charge. This is a normal way for families of premature babies deal with the loss.
    I like your blog and love your wit and satire but, in my opinion, that crosses the line. I hope that you never have to go through that as a father someday. You may change your tune then.

    Thanks.

  2. It wasn’t even a real still birth, they act like it was through natural causes. It was literally killing his wife, so at 20 something weeks, they had a doctor induce labor, so it would be aborted, b/c we all know no fetus is going to live at 20 weeks, so call it what it was…a freakin’ abortion. wellllll he says, thats different, no Rick, it’s not different. You can call it a still birth, but if you have a doctor induce labor at 20 weeks, it’s a freakin’ abortion. Hypocrite. Freakin’ oklahoma rednecks

  3. So God created the Bill of Rights did he? And all this time I thought it was John Wayne. Silly me.

  4. Like an old man once said, “son—-you can have brains or you can have beauty”.

    “But you can’t have both!”

  5. How on earth can a state this small produce so many embarrassing people?

    Good grief.

  6. Here’s a bit a relief from that horrid song. Granted, the gals are only 20 and 18 years old, and their father probably hasn’t allowed them out of the house yet for dates without him being there, but I digress.
    Here’s a video done by a high school student, which probably took about the same amount of time that it took the Harris sisters to write their song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPXuMOiJKe4 You’re welcome, Ogle readers. Now, if only the Santorum sisters listened to Creed or AlterBridge, I might have something to work with.

  7. dammit…it’s so fucking catchy! I am going to be singing it ALL day. What’s interesting is that if they put this kind of effort into interesting songs they could be REALLY successful in the music industry.

  8. Waste a waste of potential. The whole world in front of them and they openly demonstrate the high level brainbleaching they have endured.

  9. why did i move back?? i cant buy good beer that is cold, kern is still around spewing bible passages, and chesapeake is causing quakenados! oh and this guy wins in Oklahoma! “One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. [Sex] is supposed to be within marriage. It’s supposed to be for purposes that are yes, conjugal…but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen…This is special and it needs to be seen as special.”
    ~Rick Santorum, opposing contraception and frighteningly suggesting that he would make pre-marital sex illegal.

    You did say 18 and 20 right?? bbrrrrbrrrbrbrbrrrbbbrrrrrbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrbbbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrbbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! done

  10. , I didn’t listen to the video. But after reading a few online posts, I thought—“Jeez, can’t we cut a little slack here?” It seems like a couple of decent kids just expressing their political views in a personal and creative way. They music and poetry may stink (I didn’t listen), but they’re at least engaged. (I have students who didn’t even know what Super Tuesday was!)

    There’s very little about which I agree with Santorum. In fact, his comments often make me crazy! But any criticism of the way a family deals with a death of a child is way out of bounds. Nor do we need to belittle those who are not of our political tribe. (That’s Rush Limbaugh and O’Reilly’s approach.) To me, there are more than enough positions the Republican candidates hold to keep all of us Obama supporters occupied.

    • I think you need to worry about Obama keeping his campaign promises first. Lol!

      Oh well, all politicians at that level are bought-and-paid for anyways so voting is really a moot point.

      JMHO.

    • maestro,

      From your post, it seems like you might work in public education. *gasp* Maybe you missed the part where these brainwashed “decent kids” say they’ve never had cable TV, nor attended public schools, and how they are part of “8 kids, 2 parents, married 24 years.” The parents are David and Cherri Harris and their church is/was … “Jubilee Christian Center.” The site is currently down and requires a login. No doubt the parents have found “The Lord,” regardless if Santorum wins.

  11. This song would have been some unpatriotic bullshit if they hadn’t rammed that Reagan reference in there.
