Conservative Christian, Right Wing Republican, Straight, White, American Males

I've been a bit obsessed with Todd Snider's "The Devil You Know" and when I came across this song I thought it was just perfect.


Conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American male.
Gay bashin’, black fearin’, war fightin’, tree killin’, regional leaders of sales
shirt tuckin’, Frat housin’, keg tappin’, back slappin’ haters of hippies like me.
Tree huggin’, peace lovin’, pot smokin’, porn watchin’ lazyass hippies like me.

Tree huggin’, peace lovin , pro choicen, gay weddin’, widespread pani-diggin’ hippies like me. Skin color-blinded, conspiracy-minded, protesters of corporate greed,
We who have nothing and most likely will ‘till we all wind up locked up in jails
By conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American males.

Diamonds and dogs, boys and girls, living together in two separate worlds
Following leaders of mountains of shame, looking for someone to blame. I know who I like to blame:

Conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American males,
Soul savin’, flag wavin’, Rush lovin’, land pavin’ personal friends to the Quayles
Quite diligently workin’ so hard to keep the free reins of this Democracy
From tree huggin’, peace lovin’, pot smokin’, porn watchin’ lazyass hippies like me.
Tree huggin’, peace lovin’, pot smokin’, porn watchin’, barefootin’ hippies like me.
We should all be able to laugh at ourselves sometimes.

  1. This is awesome! Just read a post on another friend's blog about her un-friending someone on FB because he basically said that men tampering with birth control and coercing their wives/partners to get pregnant as a result is a right and just thing. I was feeling VERY STABBY because this former "friend" of my friend is a "Christian" man of the cloth. So I needed a laugh!

    (P.S. If you want to read this excellent post, it's my friend the Purple Magpie--she's linked on the sidebar of my blog!)
