The Corner

Shaft Conservatives

It’s been bothering me all week that I haven’t been able to come up with an anthem for Shaft Conservatives based on the theme song from Shaft. Part of the problem is that “private Dick” is hard to translate into a unilateralist nation state (but quite easy to cast as code for a reporter from the Talon News Service).

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here.

Anyway, for those interested in giving it a try, send suggested lyrics to JonahResearch@aol.com. Winner and worthwhile runners-up will get posted in the corner.

Special help: I think the word “realpolitik” will come in handy trying to stay true to the original song’s rhyming scheme.
