New York Magazine and The Washington Times each take a look at conservative cover band Coalition of the Willing.
True, it's made up of a U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, two business and military consultants, and the Hungarian ambassador to the U.S. But after the spectacle of Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, the Dixie Chicks, and other artists railing against Bush, it's reassuring to see that pop music and conservative views can mix.
