Another courageous political statement by a rock star 

And so it came to pass that the Political Relevancy Deprivation Syndrome has struck the legendary Rolling Stones, who recorded this little ditty for their new album:
How come you're so wrong? My sweet neo-con, where's the money gone, in the Pentagon...

It's liberty for all, democracy's our style, unless you are against us, then it's prison without trial...

You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite. You call yourself a patriot. Well, I think your are full of sh*t!
As Mick Jagger says, "It's not aimed, personally aimed, at President Bush. It wouldn't be called 'Sweet Neo Con' if it was."

Well, that's a relief, then.

Adds Jagger: "Keith [Richards] said, 'It's not really metaphorical.' I think he's a bit worried because he lives in the U.S… But I don't."

Maybe it's also because Keith's instincts, for all the excesses of the past, are now rather conservative.
