Carrie Underwood is pop-country muse for energized Republicans

Written By Rana G on Tuesday, January 4, 2011 | 9:40 AM

Tucked away in a New York Times story about freshman House Republicans' agenda for the next two years is the revelation that country star Carrie Underwood's song "Undo It" has become an anthem for those who want to roll back the health care law and other Democratic initiatives.

"Many seem to have latched on to 'Undo It,' the hit by the country singer Carrie Underwood, as the refrain for their planned attack against legislation that grew out of the 111th Congress, when the Democrats were at the helm in both chambers," the Times says.

Some of the lyrics:

"You stole my happy, you made me cry

"Took the lonely and took me for a ride

"And I wanna uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it"

Underwood, an Oklahoma native who won the "American Idol" competition in 2005, has eschewed public politicking. "I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate," she said before the 2008 presidential elections. Her only vaguely public political stand has been her support for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Two of Underwood's publicists did not immediately answer an e-mailed request for comment on if Underwood approves of the politicians' appropriation of her song.

House Republicans plan to hold a vote to repeal the health care law this month.
