Description In their first live concert film, the Kinsey Sicks -- America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet -- reveal the shocking news: they have gone Republican. In this mock GOP fund-raiser, Rachel, Winnie, Trixie and Trampolina, the four gifted singers and comedians who comprise the quartet, defend their conversion to conservatism. They sing -- literally! -- the praises of corruption, tokenism, greed and all things nuclear (both families and bombs). The Kinsey Sicks have been a cult phenomenon for over a decade. From Off-Broadway to Vegas and beyond, the larger-than-life Kinsey Sicks have developed a loyal following among comedy fans, music aficionados and lovers of biting political satire. Their hilarious, intelligent writing and their finely spiced menu of thought-provoking original songs and wicked parodies have won them a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Best Musical and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Best Lyrics. They have won numerous a cappella awards and the New York Times has praised their "voices sweet as birdsong."

    This is (almost) funny to watch 4 years after. Sure enough America voted in a bunch of Dems and socialism started chugging along. Oops big mistake. We're not that kind of nation, and we'll not quietly allow ourselves to be.

    Wow, I didn't realise Bush was so smart and that the country was in such great shape because of him. I thought Bush was an idiot till I saw this video, there are no lies in it at all.

    Well on the bright side? There's no longer a genocidal madman pressing detonator switches letting off all over the world!
  • David Bernard 2009-05-01 05:24:20
    Yeah, you are right, bush did great job on the economy.

    Ummm it is ignorant that all these people divide themselves as democrats and republicans when we are all americans. Whatever happened to being a person and using your brain rather than to just be part of group and follow someone blindly. compliments of george carlin lol.

    why?

    I feel Bush was incompetent in fighting the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also a war criminal.

    bradon2005 You sound very intelligent and well informed. Great comments. roflwaffle; Putin giving America deadlines?! What!?

    Mmm.. Howard Dean. He provided possibly the best memory of the 2004 democratic primaries. He most certainly did not go to Washington D.C. to take back the White House.. WAHHHH!!

    to who made this video: i am proud republican, but u are SERIOUSLY out of touch with the reality of the legislation passed by this administration. do some research, you'll learn so much.
  • Oakpaw 2008-11-22 08:38:23
    People ignore straight facts like these because they don't want to admit that what they believe is a lie. I honestly love both of these videos. I just wish the guy and the end yelling "WAHHHH!" was in the second one too. XD

    I said EMBRYONIC stem cell research. And it was a ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. That's a huge deal. The majority of Americans want federal funding. This will be overridden in the Obama administration. (Embryonic stem cells are the most important stem cells because they can grow into virtually any cell type. We need it!) You can get into semantics, but you can't be right all the time.

    First off, I didn't say it was a failed policy. I said it was a short fall, and I said it is unfair to ignore the shortfalls. I did point out two failed policies, the "ban" wasn't one of them. We call it a ban because what it is is a ban on federal funding. What Bush did was veto a bill, called the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, which prevented federal funding of stem cell research on lines of stem cells derived from discarded human embryos. Now the U.S. is lagging behind in this area

    I stand by my previous statements.
  • tombapilot04 2008-11-19 04:28:44
    I've listed two failed policies, and several short-falls of the Bush presidency. For a non-politician, I'd say that's pretty good. Good luck convincing any other liberal-leaning voters that Bush was healthy for our country! (He's been horrible, and I can't believe he got a second term...)
  • tombapilot04 2008-11-19 04:24:31
    Do you know why people say they hate politics? It's because people don't like the negative one-sided attacks from people like you! It's because whenever people like you present their material, they purposely do it in the most unbalanced, misleading way and it most certainly doesn't represent the big picture. I'm sure that if I were a dishonest left-winger, I'd be throwing laughable facts at you to! Don't think I can't see right through it. They didn't call it a lame duck presidency for noth'n
  • tombapilot04 2008-11-18 23:17:24
    Maybe that's because the intelligence was actaully accurate for Kosovo, whereas for Iraq it wasn't? Did you ever think of that?! Probably not, since you are one-sided and biased on the issue. Next time make a more honest video. (Not that I care. I'd rather you continue making videos like this because it just goes to show how corrupt the right can be...)(I think the right has lost it's way, thus that means I'll only vote for a republican if I feel he'll do a good job.)
