The Lyrics

She must belong to drunk-tank dipso;
She’s nuts, has lost her way.
Or doing the Caligari Calypso,
The somnambulism sway.
She says she believes that rotten hoods are in the hoods
And kidnapping good folks away.
And all you can do is laugh at her,
Once-sane J. McCain, and J.D. Hay[worth].

Arizona don’t go for rainbow shades,
Arizona don’t look like this part of the world,
Why, why?
Arizona, for comics this state’s made;
Arizona, this trio—me río* [in] spades.

He’s stripped of his pride
Since he pandered, slandered, wandered to the dark side.
He strayed, still his fate was: crush Hayworthless in their race.
Awful boner, when he went north to choose
Awful droner moron for running mate.

Foulup, creep, nut from drunk-tank dipso—
Three who babble and bray
In state that hates Poncho and Cisco
And wants them not to stay.
The scenery is awful good, although one should
From Phoenix metro stay away—
Much better to go stand atop a table**
Away from the f**ked-up fray.

Arizona ain’t all a brain-dead state,
Arizona has a nut gov and two ahole guys.
Arizona, a place to visit—great—
Arizona, if these three would vacate.

*I laugh

It's obvious you don't live in Arizona.

But at least you no longer have to buy a permit to carry a gun there. An example the rest of the states should follow.

Within the lifetimes of some people on this site, Arizona's Senator Barry Goldwater was nominated for President and was too conservative for 44 out of 50 States. Today, he'd be too liberal for the Tea Partiers, as his Senate successor McCain now is. Don't forget their Republicans just nominated Ben Quayle for Congress. He says President Obama is the worst President ever -- less than 2 years after Dubya left office. So if his dad was dumber than Dubya's dad, and Dubya was dumber than Dan Quayle, how dumb is Ben?

I always thought Jimmy Carter was the worst president, at least in my lifetime. He has been a fine ex-president. I hope Obama will have that chance in 2012. Maybe he'll do something to actually earn that Nobel Peace Prize.

Thanks, Randy, Patrick, Michael. Speaking of the Quayle disease, I just found my February 1989 copy of "Spy" mag. Cover story: "Mr. Stupid Goes to Washington: America's ten dopiest lawmakers." On the cover: Dan Quayle wearing a dunce cap. Sound like his son's even more of a moron, if such is possible.

Sounds more like Twilight-Zona! And thanks for not besmirching the memory of Barry Morris Goldwater...a true American statesman who appeared both after and before his time. ;D

Good Quayle nailing

Goldwater too liberal for tea partiers? How about this fact: JFK, whose boots Obama's not worthy to lick, would be too conservative for todays Democrats. Not a socialist. A champion of American exceptionalism. No domestic terrorist buddies. No messiah complex.
