The Mighty Whitey Righties

We, The Mighty Whitey Righties, ranging in age from 19 to 88,
are a musical group made up of concerned New York artists in the folk, rock, cabaret, opera, theater, jazz, film, pastry, and real estate arts.
We wanted to get into politics, but what to do:
Buy a piece of property?
Put on a show?
Bake cupcakes?

The best thing we can do is sing a song for Republicans to rally 'round.
And make ourselves available for all Republican parties
within a two mile radius of Manhattan.
Enjoy our first recording:
WE ARE THE TRUE AMERICANS

and yes, we will bring cupcakes.

Let's put FUN back in Fundamental Conservatism.

We're honored to welcome Edith and Ervin Drake to the cult. Ervin is author of some of the 20th century's best songs in the Great Ameican Songbook ("Good Morning Heartache," "I Believe," and the Sinatra standard "It Was A Very Good Year" are just three that come to mind), and his songwriting and political rabble-rousing continue into the 21st Century with his "I'm A Card-Carrying Bleeding Heart Liberal" [available as a download at http://drake.folkdude.com/], and now his joining "The Mighty Whitey Righty Singers" on this new Republican anthem, "We Are The True Americans.
