Carrie Underwood's 'Undo It' is GOP's musical inspiration for 112th Congress. What should the Dems pick?
It's a recognized law of nature that nothing goes better with a good breakup than a sad country song; incidentally, this rule may now apply to a gridlocked 112th Congress.
You made my cry
Took the lonely and took me for a ride
And I wanna Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh undo it
Republicans have transformed country singer Carrie Underwood's song "Undo It" from ballad to battle cry in an attempt to repeal the health-care law and other initiatives spearheaded by Democrats.
Following their unraveling theme, the GOP will also launch congressional investigations into a wide range of issues, including corruption in Afghanistan and Washington's regulation of private industries.
A few suggestions:
- "Why Can't We Be Friends" by War (as covered by Smash Mouth)
- "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga
- "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
