Chart topping Donald Rumsfeld and his poetry

Matt Haughey, May 12th, 2004

Proving that culture can be remixed in almost real-time, a group from San Francisco has created an album of piano and opera versions of US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s statements to the press. They offer sound samples and the lyrics pulled from press briefings on their site, and are currently on tour. Rumsfeld himself has heard the songs and jokingly decried the state of music, now that he is the subject of songs. [via]
