The Lyrics

I did one in 2004 called the Democratic Presidential Candidate show, but this one is better than the original
(Spoken) Ladies and Gentlemen, it's the 2008 Presidential Candidate Show

It's time to bash illegals
It's time make tax flat
It's time to hit the others with a presidential bat!
It's time for Nat'nal Healthcare
It's time for Edwards hair!
It's time to fix social security and medicare!

Mike Huckabee's a Preacher, Kusinich sees green men
At least Al Gore decided he'd never run again!

The left are pinko commies! The right are right wing nutjobs!

Will the Next President be the
nations first woman?
First to be mormon?
First to be Nig-Black?
Maybe Jacques Chirac?
or the forty fourth protestant male?

Wasn't Kennedy Catholic? Who cares, this is funny. I think you have an extra syllable in line 9, should probably just say "wing nutjob" instead of "right wing nutjob." And you spelled Kucinich wrong.

Shut up, Statler and Waldorf, it was funny.

I know I've been slacking off on this for a while, but here's 555 plus a Dylan Baranski Award for "Best Parody of the Day". As for me, I'm going to vote for Chuck Mangione in the upcoming election.

Mercifully, I get to observe all of this primary hoop-la from a very long distance :) That said, I enjoyed the parody!

555: for true parody au Politique.

The last stanza got a little scary in the pacing flow, but a neat little tune all around.

Har har, funny. Nice keeping-the-rhymes in the last bit "woman/mormon, black/chirac."

Actually, Yes, JFK was the only bad
