Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners created this little song above, sung by our children sad about the future, encouraging people to re-elect President Obama. No stranger to political ads, Rich Silverstein distilled eight years of politics into word-posters back in 2007 to encourage people to vote democrat. This time he got Jeff Goodby to help out and write the song, despite being a registered Republican, and the song goes a little like this;

"Imagine an America / Where strip mines are fun and free / Where gays can be fixed / And sick people just die / And oil fills the sea
We don’t have to pay for freeways! / Our schools are good enough / Give us endless wars / On foreign shores / And lots of Chinese stuff"

Where oil fills the sea? Like that BP disaster oil spill? Ha! Jeff might have thrown in a curveball or two just to mess with yas.

The chorus repeats, "We’re the children are the future, American through and through. But something happened to our country, and we’re kind of blaming you." OK. If I don't vote Obama, my kid is gonna be peeved. Gotcha.
