It was fun coming into Baton Rouge, where Republicans love to tread, and hearing “Where are the weapons of mass destruction / We been looking for months and we ain’t found nothing / Please, Mr. President, tell us something / We knew from the beginning that your ass was fronting.” Listen to all the lyrics. Then watch this live performance of another cut from the same album.
