The Lyrics

anybody seen the new sad democrats?
can you tell me where they've gone?
they bought a lotta people but it seems they're no good, what they brung
you know we just need to vote and they're gone

anybody here seen the running mate john?
from the east and soon he's gone
he's bought a lotta people but it seems they're no good, what they brung
you know we just need to vote and he's gone

anybody here seen the democrat Kerry?
from the left and soon he's gone
he's bought a lotta people but it seems they're no good, what they brung
you know we just need to vote and he's gone

don't you love the things that they stand for?
didn't they try to hide no good from you and me?
they're sly you see
some day soon, we'll vote them away

anybody here seen my old friend George?
he'll be back another four years long
I thought I saw him walking up capital hill
no democrats, Edwards or John

Since parody sometimes involves turning the original song's intent and meaning upside-down-and-backwards, this particular parody is effective as a satirical reversal of the original song's intent. I give it 5's ..... I like how even though it's written as a polemic against-the-democrats and for-the-republicans, it ends up being somewhat ambiguous about President George W. Bush, because the rest of the parody is such a brutally satirical reversal of the original song's message of wistful hopefulness that the last verse about GWB gets ambiguously swept up in that spirit of sarcasm.

Well I can't measure up to that Johnny D speech, but I like your parody, Malcolm.

5s for the song and for JD's analysis.

In memory of the Democrats in the original song -- and Lincoln, who would be appalled as what his party has done since he was, in their mind, "out of the way" -- I had to give you the old 4-1-2. This was ridiculous, and not in a good way. Malcolm, you are the king of quantity over quality, and, as those Miller beer commercials are saying, we generally don't like kings in this country. Except in Sacramento, and I'm not referring to Herr Gropenfuhrer.

Malcolm-I'll take your "quantity" any day.

That'll be 4-5-5 for you, but you probably should have waited to release this until after we win the election this fall. Much more appropriate then. :-D
