It's Day 17 of "Video a Day Until the Walker Recall." This is called: "The War Against Milwaukee and Madison."
It's not just a song. (Sample lyrics: "Milwaukee, heavy on minorities/Madison, for homosexuality/Milwaukee and Madison, I love you both.") The song is just the intro, though it takes 2 minutes. There are still 3 minutes left on this video, by Adam Schabow.
Stay tuned for spoken word section: "This is my house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I live in the heart of a heavily, heavily African-American neighborhood... I love my neighbors.... At work, I'm the only white person in a department of 26, 23 of them are employees that work under me. I love my employees and I love my boss." (Note: They're not your employees.) This quickly becomes an attack on Scott Walker for using racism as a campaign theme, the notion being that to criticize Milwaukee is to scare Wisconsinites about black people.
Via Meade, via the Isthmus forum, where Schabow announced his project.
