VIDEO: ‘First Love’ song about Rick Santorum sparks nationwide cringe

"There will be justice for the unborn, factories back on our shores."

This is real. This is not a joke. A string instrument-wielding pair of sisters from Tulsa has taken to YouTube to endorse presidential candidate Rick Santorum. BUT THIS IS NO ORDINARY ENDORSEMENT. This is a musical endorsement.

Observe.
 
The music video, titled “Game On” has a lot of shiny happy people holding signs, with sisters Camille and Haley Harris front and center with a catchy tune. Among the heartfelt lyrics in the ditty are lines like:

  • “We’ve got a man that understands that God gave the Bill of Rights.”
  • “There is hope for our nation again… maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan.” (Yes, “again” and “Reagan” can rhyme, as demonstrated by the Harris sisters)
  • “Faithful to his wife and seven kids, will be loyal to our land.”
  • “Yes, we believe Rick Santoooruuuuuuum is our man….. Game on!”

This. Just. Happened.

Among shots of the sisters and their family members ecstatically playing instruments, there are also artistic close-ups of fingers switching chords and playful hair scrunching above wayfarer sunglasses.

The eight-kid Harris family, a.k.a musical group First Love, said it felt compelled to write this song after meeting Rick Santorum and his wife, both outspoken Christians, in Tulsa.

“We feel privileged and honored to write this song for them. It was 100% our idea to write this for them – he deserves it,” they commented below their video.

The Harris family is likely a kindhearted bunch, and, hey, everyone knows a family that sings together, stays together. You can’t fault them for having the courage to state their political views in a creative, public way, BUT — do they really think God gave us the Bill of Rights?!
