An Arizona conservative group is fed up with Donald Trump, and decided to make a video mocking him. There's a problem, though. When you start with a parody, how do you parody it?

Arizona's Public Integrity Alliance, a conservative nonprofit group largely made up of East Valley Republicans, has helped topple former state Attorney General Tom Horne, targeted the slimy political maneuverings of former state Senate President Russell Pearce and his bumbling brother Lester, and put pressure on ex-Arizona Corporation Commission Chair Susan Bitter Smith to resign, which she since has done.

Now, disgusted by the rise of foul-mouthed demagogue Donald Trump, the PIA, which some wags snark also stands for "Pain in the Ass," is taking aim at The Donald and his dumb-as-dirt, ditto-head supporters, lampooning the latter in an awesome new music video for the spoof song, "Make America Great Again."

The video features Phoenix comedian Brian Nissen's reprising his running, redneck character "Dwain," a mullet-headed simpleton who loves corndogs, Karate, pickup trucks, sittin' out in the yard on a beat-up couch, and, of course, Trump, because he's not afraid to say the things that ordinary idiots like Dwain think and want their leaders to regurgitate.

It's only too bad he made the video before the "schlonged" comment. He certainly could have done something more with that.

Of course, Trump supporters think it's serious and cool. Because 'Murica'.
