I first saw this video in Belgrade, which should tell you how much in the loop I am, after visiting an exhibit of national historic
Yugoslav Serbian costumes:
Do I think that, should the American experiment fail, people will adopt demented Uncle Sam, biker, and cheerleader outfits as markers of national identity?
Yes; next question. (The Yugoslav costumes had belts made of dinars. I've seen Navajo jewelry made from silver dollars and turquoise, but this was all about the bling.) Anyway. Noel called me on route to Florida informing me that there is, in fact, one demographic the Obama campaign has not fully reached in musical form, the headbanging sunburned Pabst Blue Ribbon drinker. Hell, enough of them are blood kin, so I'll just say it: the redneck.
Alas, I might be the only HDTD reader who has video editing software. But if there's anyone else out there. You know what to do.
PS: Southern rock as American turbofolk. Discuss.
PPS: Yes, it's possible to change the "KID ROCK" logo in the video to "BARACK". No, it's not worth the effort.
