Pink – Dear Mr President
The video of Pink singing Dear Mr President live in New York City is on YouTube, and you can access it via this link.
It’s only a mildly interesting video, but worth a watch so you know what all the fuss is about. It’s certainly better than the official video release, which is naîve in the extreme.
The main problem is that the song is not very good. Pink’s sincerity is not in question, though if she wants to be taken completely seriously she would have to stop advertising Pepsi.
And although the song isn’t interesting, the fall-out from its release, certainly is. We see, once again, that any criticism of the American government’s policies, brings forth an immediate, violent and personal attack from Bush supporters, quite out-of-proportion to the sentiment expressed.
