Rachel Maddow Show: Back In Saddle? Cantor's Hyprocrisy On Decency

You Tube

Rachel Maddow calls out Eric Cantor for his supposed concern over decency on our public air waves, and his outrage over a one second glimpse of Janet Jackson's nipple while having no problems sending out a profanity laced anti-union video, or his latest with this "Back in the Saddle" video and not taking note of what's in the rest of the song he chose for their web ad praising their obstruction on the stimulus bill.

Maddow: The song that anti-obscenity family's value crusador Cantor has chosen as a hook for his new video which brags about the Republicans losing the stimulus debate....that hook is a song by Aerosmith called Back in the Saddle which is about hookers. Actually specifically it's about one hooker, um the lyrics are sung from the point of view of a man who is very happy to be enjoying the services of a hooker who seems very nice. Her name is Sukie.

I wanted to try to give you all the lyrics to the song so you could see exactly what I'm talking about in the event that you're not totally up on your circa 1976 Aerosmith, but Congressman Cantor did help pass the broadcast decency enforcement act so I can only give you the redacted hooker related lyrics. You can look them up on your own. Congressman Cantor, I'm all in favor of hooker related art in music. Are you too? Do you want to talk about it?

For anyone who doesn't want to take the time to look up the lyrics to Back in the Saddle, you can just go here to read them. Cantor and the rest of the GOP are showing themselves to be more and more polically tone deaf by the day with their recent moves like this one.
