The Lyrics

You might have expected my first parody after the election to be connected to it. It is. You might have expected it to be angry. Perhaps, but it's more sad than anything else. And you might have expected it to rip the "winner." Instead, it blames the people who caused the actual choice of the people to "lose." It's the same people who are always at fault when the Democratic nominee ends up being unable to accept the Presidency. You might be one of them. If you are, when things go wrong, don't come running to those of who got it right.
Anybody here
seen my old friend Hubert?
Why'd you fail to make him your pick?
He helped a lot of people
but you wanted Gene, now we're sick.
I just looked around, we've got Dick.

Anybody here
seen my old friend Jimmy?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He helped a lot of people
but you wanted Ted, and were wrong.
I just looked around, we've got Ron.

Anybody here
seen my old friend Al?
Why're we left with nothing but mush?
He helped a lot of people
but you wanted Ralph, kicked our tush.
I just looked around, we've got Bush.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
But you didn't accept them as the nominee.
No purity.
Stayed home
cost them Election Day.

Anybody here
seen my old friend Hillary?
Can you tell me where she's gone?
You wanted Bernie
then Hill, not Jill.
And stuck the rest of us with Don.
"Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line." They show up, no matter how unacceptable their nominee is. You don't. When will you ever learn? As one of the subjects of the original song, Martin Luther King, once said, In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.j

I don't see how you can call Secretary Clinton the "choice of the people" when her unfavorable ratings were as high as they were. But I, too, am sad, as I would have been no matter who won. This was probably the worst choice of presidential candidates our great country has ever had.

I admire your stamina and resolve, sir. You stick to your guns no matter what. This is a well written parody, but then you have always been a fine writer. Metaphorically this site is a big colorful picture of personalities. If you were never here that color that is you would never shine through and the rest would have lost out on the shine. A fine read and thanks for sharing your thoughts. All due respect. I bid you 5's, sir.

Sorry for your loss. I agree with Guy, so 5s.

I agree with Jenkins, it was the worst choice of candidates ever. Still, Hillary was clearly a lot better than Trump so Hillary got my vote. So I feel the pain too. I think it depends on the election as to which party stays home more. The Independents are supposed to be the ones to decide it, but if it's unequal on both sides who knows

John J: At last check, Hillary had 631,000 more popular votes than Trump. That's more than Kennedy had over Nixon in 1960, more than Humphrey had over Nixon in 1968, more than Gore had over Bush in 2000. Many of those votes may have been reluctant, but she DID finish 1st, so it cannot be argued that she was not "the people's choice." She didn't get enough of the people in the right places. I did the math: If (and, with population growth, she should at least have done this) Hillary had merely gotten as many votes in each State as Obama got 4 years ago, she would have won not only Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin, but also Arizona, and won 313 Electoral Votes. The Electoral College is the last bastion of the antiquated and idiotic idea that States have more rights than the people therein. Just 4 years ago, Trump was dumb enough to think that Romney was winning the popular vote, and said that we ought to get rid of the Electoral College. He was half-right.

But if Clinton had won under the Electoral College vote as normal, it would have been fine, right? The liberal mind never ceases to amaze me. You lost because your polls were wrong (as were the liberal biased media) and establishment Hillary took female and minority voters for granted. Trump the outsider populist won and saved Congress! I would say that the people have spoken. Absolutely. By the rules they voted.

Some interesting "what if" scenarios. Caught the influence of third party candidates, too. The Electoral College is one of the last bastions of State influence. I would like to see the election of senators revert to the State legislatures, as it was in the pre-1913 Constitution of the United States. That would go a long way to eliminating unfunded federal mandates.
