Description

Ever since John Hancock broke into song after signing the Declaration of Independence, American politics and musicals have been inextricably linked. From Alexander Hamilton's jazz hands, to Chester A. Arthur's oboe operas, to Newt Gingrich's off-Broadway sexscapade, You, Me, and My Moon Colony Mistress Makes Three, government and musical theater have joined forces to document our nation's long history of freedom, partisanship, and dancers on roller skates pretending to be choo choo trains.
 
To celebrate this grand union of entrenched bureaucracy and song, the patriots at McSweeney's Internet Tendency (“The Iowa Caucus of humor websites”) offer this riotous collection (peacefully assembled!) of monologues, charts, scripts, lists, diatribes, AND musicals written by the noted fake-musical lyricist, Ben Greenman. On the agenda are . . . 
 
Fragments from PALIN! THE MUSICAL
 
Barack Obama’s Undersold 2012 Campaign Slogans
 
Atlas Shrugged Updated for the Financial Crisis
 
Your Attempts to Legislate Hunting Man for Sport Reek of Class Warfare
 
A 1980s Teen Sex Comedy Becomes Politically Uncomfortable

And much more!
