Not to say anything about Steve Jobs' politics, but that song seems to have been free on iTunes for the last 3 months. Perhaps Oberst made it available to them in exchange for it being a free download. One may never know.

oberst cannot even get arrest, can he? LOL
You know what? We don't care what some twit singer's opinion of our president is. Ditto actors. Lincoln had bigger problems with actors in his day. If some minor celeb wants to cut the president, go right ahead. Red State has bigger worries

That song sucks and it doesn't suck because it's anti-Bush. His last two albums were mediocre and the song is more attention-getting than anything. The song came out before the election but even major Bush hater Dawn Summers hated it. So, I don't know. I think the fact that it's clear this song won't make him famous is letting everyone give him a pass.

Steve, nobody west of the Hudson or east of San Bernardino has heard of this Oberst person. Oh, sure, he's from Omaha -- but you need someone famous to mouth off before Flyover Country gets upset. Also, the guy's from Omaha -- the guy could, a la Ernst Stavro Blofeld, do a lot worse and nobody would hear about it for years.

Hey, thanks for the link. Minor correction, I'm a girl. I didn't see the performance on the Tonight Show, but someone in a forum I hang out on, did, and posted the lyrics, and all the lefties came out of the closet to say "Wow!" and I just had to comment that it wasn't one of free speech's finest moments, IYKWIM. I hope the fact that the lyrics are so stupid explains its lack of popularity.

Tony Kushner's Law -- yes, unfortunately, it's true -- remember "Piss Christ"?
