Right Wing v. Left Wing

The other night before bed, I came up with this great idea that I think will help solve political differences in America.

The concept is simple. The Democrats will put together a band – a rock band. They’ll call themselves “Right Wing” in a show of great irony. They’ll write songs about freedom and how much the PATRIOT Act stinks, and the like. They’ll become famous.

In retort, the Republicans will put together a band called “Left Wing.” They too will write songs about freedom, and issues such as doing what’s right. They’ll become famous.

The fame of both bands will lead to a large showdown at Madison Square Garden: Right Wing versus Left Wing. The best aspect of the situation is that Republicans will be cheering for Left Wing, and the Democrats will be cheering for Right Wing, proving that we can all just get along… so long as we can rock out!

I think it’ll work.

Instead of the Right Wings, how about the Rush Limblows?

And Paul McCartney will sue them both for infringing on his band "Wings" and the limey Brit will rule the world. Muhahahahaha!

Don't think he'd do it? Hell Apple Records (of Beatles fame) sued Apple Computer? ;) Heck, I'm not sure if it's finally settled or not.

Q: Will they do a song called "Politicians on the Run?"

Yeah, I'd root for Right Wing, by right wing I mean left wing, err, no, I mean the the actual left wing, or the band, no- not the band, I'd want Right wing.. never mind.
