It's a good single. But I have serious doubts about the "meaning" of the song. Apparently, it's about the relationship between George W. Bush and Tony Blair. I see it in a different way. I think "I'm With Stupid" is about them, and the relationship they have with their fans. I have read a lot about the boys aver the past years, and any informed fan will concede the guys are sarcastic and that they will "never tell the whole truth" to the public, as they once said. Even Neil Tennant sings "You grin, I pose. It's not about sincerity, everybody knows." The video for the track had them kidnapped and obliged to assist to a re-cap of the "Very" era videos, performed by two unlikely doubles with no significant budget. Maybe an allusion to those who constantly asked them for a "Very 2" which never really came out in one take. The whole show looks tragic and there is never any direct visual reference to Bush or Blair. Yet, we are once again projected into the "pointy hats" universe. "Do we really have a relationship so special in your heart?" asks Tennant. The lyrics raise more questions than answers. But ultimately, what I feel in this song is that they are tired. The end might be near.
