Kelly's comment about Townshend writing Won't Get Fooled Again "about Bush" couldn't be any farther from the truth. WGFA is written about being lied to by ALL politicians, not just Republican ones.

What happens when we elect a new leader? We hope we won't get fooled by them again.

The true context of the song should be obvious, especially when considering the Democrats/Obama controlled Federal government:

"Meet the new boss; same as the old boss"
