I happened to be touring in North Carolina as the state legislature passed its latest "Religious Freedom" bill, making Tolerance punishable by fine or imprisonment.
What a great time to release this song,"Religious Freedom (to Burn Our Own Witches)." Melanie and I wrote it touring last fall, and shot the video over five weeks in ten cities in eight states on one continent!
WE GOT FACT-CHECKED!
Melanie and I wrote the song "65 Million (Mitch McConnell STFU)" in an attempt to make math funny. (Successful!) Also, to take Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senate to task for obstructing President Obama's Supreme Court nomination.
PolitiFact picked up on the song, and found it to be "Half True." Ouch. But we know we're right, and we're not giving an inch. Here's our response:
UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION BY HOLDING IT UP
KEEP THE WHEELS OF SATIRE ROLLING
Rather often, people tell me, "Thank you for what you're doing." I love writing and singing these songs, especially during an election year. Political sensitivities are so acute this year that some people break into a rash at the sound of Wolf Blitzer's voice. It's always great to hear that the songs are doing good work.
We talk often of "keeping the wheels of satire on the road" and some people ask how they can help. So we've set up these "Donation" buttons. If you're so inclined, you can help keep these wheels rolling by donating $25 or $100 or more. Thank you so much.
