Aimee Mann and Ted Leo made an appearance on Conan to present the world with a song that they wrote in support of the former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee, who is running for president and is currently polling at 0 percent.

But, I think we should at least get him on the board so he’s not humiliated.” Chafee later thanked O’Brien for the unsolicited campaign song in a statement published on Billboard:
I want to thank Conan for the attention,” Chafee wrote in a statement released by his spokeswoman. “He’s a good sport and I would definitely come on the show to help his ratings.
