|Minneapolis Recording Artist, Democrats with an Attitude Take Entertaining Shot and Impeachment Hearings, Starr|
- December 2 -
The following was released today by Democrats with an Attitude:
Minneapolis-based nationally renowned Raven recording artist Paul Metsa, and the nationally recognized new attitude of Democratic party politics Democrats with an Attitude are teaming up to release and introduce Metsa's soon-to-be-hit "Lincoln's Bedroom" to the world.
Metsa has been called "one of the most poetic protest songwriters of our day," by the College Music Journal.
The folk tune written and performed by Metsa is a ballad that cleverly discusses the issues of the day and Kenneth Starr's witch hunt investigation into President Clinton.
The refrain, "have they no shame" sums up the Starr presidential meandering and reminds listeners that there is, "a wife, mother and daughter sleeping down the hall."
The analogy that Starr is peering through the window of the Lincoln Bedroom snooping on Clinton and disrespecting the office and the country couldn't be more accurate. It is also a soft but not so subtle poke at the entire premise of Starr's investigation.
Metsa compares Starr to the "jackbooted sex police" and parallels the $50 million Starr investigation to the Spanish Inquisition claiming, "Nikita Khruschev must be laughing in his grave."
All in all there is no doubt that the song is a clever artistic account of how most Americans feel about the entire ordeal.
In true populist spirit, "Lincoln's Bedroom" can be downloaded for free from www.paulmetsa.com.
