Jimmy Buffet's song lyrics might be connected to things political

for instance, this song lyric from Jimmy's album entitled: "Fruitcakes":


Religion, religion.
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa

Where's the church, who took the steeple

It's that born again look, it's the wasp and the Jew
Tell me what's goin on, I ain't got a clue

 I need a margarita.
