The Lyrics

Rick Santorum's "suspension" of his primary campaign all but assures the Republican nominee at the August convention. TOS contains lyrics to three songs, so I show each original title in brackets below. My third song revives the spectre of voter intimidation by either authorities or militants.
[Barry Is The Baby's Name]

This Fall it's Romney, Romney
That'll be one candidate.
'Twill not be Rick or Newt;
'Though both plied suit,
'Twas not their fate.
Instead it's Romney; Romney
Latched Ann, dame with guile and grace.
Stands tough, he's not a she;
He still could be
Spiked by Barack's race. [1]


R-O-MNEYM-ITT spells Romney, Mitt.
Four years back, it looked like he was ready,
But botched the fray to John McCain the Steady.
Dub-ya-ILLAR-D has not drunk beer; [2]
But he flayed Santorum good,
Like a real B.H.O. flayer should.
Romney, blitz this year!

[Get On The Garden Freeway]

Get on the G.O.P. sleigh, [3]
When you drum up new viz I.D.
You'll see a great big New Black Panther
With a brand new Barack Tee. [4]
Feint left and he'll let us go.
Continue 'til he's out of sight;
Then turn around and guard my back,
So that he won't see votes too right!
[1] The double-entendre is deliberate.
[2] A Mormon would not hold "beer summits" like the incumbent has.
[3] Register Republican and bring proper identification to the polling place.
[4] -shirt; refers to a November 4, 2008 incident in Philadelphia.
