Music That I Hate: The Young Cons

10 Aug

So far, I’ve been having a great summer.  Between engaging projects at work, and great vacations, my mood has been nothing but good.  I think this has shown up in my blogging.  It’s been fun, light, and nothing but entertaining and informative.  To this point, I’ve had no call to blog about the dark side–music that I hate.  Well, today a cloud of political rap cast a shadow over my sunny disposition.  Today, I want to tell you about “The Young Cons.”

Suppose there was a pair of young men, educated at Dartmouth College.  Also suppose that these folks were of a conservative political bent.  Now finally, suppose that these guys expressed their political thoughts and feelings through the musical form known as rap.  I want you to close your eyes for a moment, and imagine what they might rap about.

Is this close?

“I love this country and all Americans

It’s time to unite and time to take a stand

We are tellin the government Yes we can

We don’t think we’re weak, and we have a game plan

The government needs to stop the moochin

Their one and only role, uphold the constitution

Taxing people who create jobs is stupid

Spreading the love like my name is cupid

Sit back and listen to the young con movement”

I don’t know if it makes it better or worse that they have a dancer, Cole Hernandez, who might be a midget.  I’m not really sure, it just infuriates me more.  Anyway, here’s the video so you can see for yourselves.

As a final aside, something I don’t really need to junk this blog up with are my political leanings, just know that tksama is by far the most socialist of the three of us as he daily  suckles at the teat of big government, and schuyfi worked for Obama’s campaign once.  If you want to know who i voted for, it came down to Sebastian Tellier and Fred Falke.
