Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Go Johnnie Go! The line about "not one PAC cent" refers to Kerry being one of few Senators who doesn't take money from Political Action Committees.
(dadadadadadadadadadadadadadadad DAAAA DAAAA)

George Bush was a born again Christian with few wits,
Who became the President,
Kerry left his home in Boston, Massachusetts,
But he took not one PAC cent,

Flip Flop, Flip Flop,
Flip Floppin is what they accuse,
Flip Flop, Flip Flop,
Sean Hannity screams on Fox News.
Fight Back John Forbes!

(dadadadadadadaddadaddadadada DAAA DAAA daadadadadadadadadadadadadada)

Flip Flop (DAAA DAAAA)

Fight Back, Fight Back,
Fight Back cause you're a better man, (DAAAA DAAA)
Fight Back, Fight Back,
Send George back to his Texas ranch,
Get back George!

Sweet Teresa Kerry had five hundred million,
But her husband didn't care,
'Cause our nation's debt now is five hundred billion,
Saddam had weapons Bush swears,

Flip Flop, Flip Flop,
Flip Floppin is what they accuse,
Flip Flop, Flip Flop,
John Forbes Kerry is not amused,
Fight Back John Forbes!

Fight Back!

Ah, Fight Back,
Yeah, Fight Back,
Fight Back cause you're a better man.
Yeah Fight Back, Fight ba-a-a-ackk.
Send Bush back to his Texas ranch.
Ooo, oh.

Fight Back John Forbes,
Your country's waitin' for ya.
Get us out of Iraq,
With you we'll all do better,
Go back home, George Dubya


Fight ba-a-a-ack, Fight ba-a-a-a-ack,
Fight Back 'cause you're a better man,
Ohhhhhh. Yeh,
Kerry'd like to thank you on behave the
The group and ourselves and we hope we win the election!

I didn't think it was possible to write a fairly clever parody of a Beatles song and have it sit more than 24 hours with no votes. Adam, I commend you for a good parody, but I am one of those who accuses Kerry of flip flopping. There is a good article on Slate by Michael Grumwald on sub titled "If you don't like the Democratic nominee's views, just wait a week."

And more recently than the article, he claimed to have discussed the presidency with foreign leaders, then denied making this statement. He also said that it would be irresponsible to vote against the $87 billion appropriation for the Iraq transition, then voted against it. I am not the greatest defender of George W. Bush, but I would much prefer his consistency in office for the war on terror.

Let's see, a candidate who's changed his mind, or a candidate whose views are set in stone... his head, and he doesn't have a mind to change. Give me Kerry, and bring it on!

Kerry's goin' down. And do you know who's pulling the rug? George W.? Noooooooo . . . . . BILL & HILLARY. If Kerry wins the election, Hillary will have to square off in 2008 against PRESIDENT Kerry. That wouldn't look good for the Democratic party. So, after 8 years of Kerry, the pendelum would most likely swing conservative. The first serious opportunity Hillary would have of winning would be the election in 20016. You know she isn't about to wait in the wings that long. However, if Bush wins re-election, Hillary has a very good chance of winning in 2008 - then God help the U.S.A.. Don't be surprised if at the last minute the Clintons covertly trip up Kerry, to throw the election to Bush - or they pull a bait and switch, and have Hillary step in just in time to "save the day".

If you believe what you've posted here, then you're as dumb as Bush is. Do you really believe that Bill & Hillary want a damned Republican in the White House? Especially one who's screwing up as much and as often and as badly as Georgie Bush? Come on, wake up and smell the soy latte! If anything, it's JEB that'll square off against President Kerry in 2008, because Cheney will be lucky to live so long, and it's the Bushes that are as devious and backstabbing as you believe the Clintons to be. After all, the Clintons never stole an election. The Bushes did. And I'm still not convinced there was no chicanery in 1980, too, with Poppy pulling an Iran "October Surprise." No, Bill & Hillary will go all out for Kerry, because they want to win. If Kerry wins, the Clintons win. That may sound like an endorsement for Bush to you, but to me it sounds like the biggest endorsement Kerry will ever get. Are you angry NOW? In the words of the immortal Yoda, "!"

I think the parody, like all liberals, suck big time! Kerry is a traitor to this country, and has no right to be President .He should have been shot by a firing squad. Any one who supports him is in the same league!

See I'm not Angry comment above. Made accurate predictions, but for the wrong reasons: "The first serious opportunity Hillary would have of winning would be the election in 2016. You know she isn't about to wait in the wings that long. However, if Bush wins re-election, Hillary has a very good chance of winning in 2008"...of course he didn't figure on Obama.
