The Lyrics

Bob Barr is the Libertarian party's nominee for the 2008 presidential election. There have already been plenty of parodies on here about the major-party candidates, so I thought I'd do one about Barr so he doesn't get "left out". This describes what might have happened the day he was nominated...
DELEGATES:

"Lib-ertarians and we're okay
Sleep all night and campaign all day"

BARR:

"My name's Bob Barr, Republican
Is what I used to be
I didn't like the Patriot Act
So I ditched the G.O.P."

DELEGATES:

"His name's Bob Barr, Republican
Is what he used to be
He didn't like the Patriot Act
And neither, well, do we.
Lib-ertarian and he's okay
Sleeps all night, he'll campaign all day"

BARR:

"I fought the war on drugs but now
I've changed my point of view
I now believe in pers'nal choice
I now agree with you"

DELEGATES:

"When he was in the House he fought
The stupid war on drugs
But now he's flip-flopped on that thing
He now agrees with us
Lib-ertarian and he's okay
Sleeps all night and campaigns all day"

BARR:

"I've really changed, I used to hate
Those A-C-L-U guys
I changed my mind, 'cause they defend
Our constitoosh'nal rights"

DELEGATES:

"He's really changed, 'cause now he likes
Our A-C-L-U guys
He thinks they're our best weapon
Against old Dubya's spies
Lib-ertarian and he's okay
Sleeps all night and campaigns all day"

BARR:

"I got divorced, I like to lick
Whipped cream from women's chests
I ate some cheese 'twas made from milk
Fresh from Borat's wife's breast"

DELEGATES:

"He got divorced, he likes to lick
Whipped cream from women's....chests?"

(spoken)

"Oh dear!"
"Didn't he bash Bill Clinton, though? Isn't that hypocritical?"
"Yes!"
"Wait a minute guys--we're Libertarians. We're not prudes and we don't legislate people's love lives."
"Yeah, didn't we have strip clubs advertise at our convention?"
"Freedom of speech, baby!"
"Yeah! He's the perfect Libertarian! He's our man!"

(sing)

"Lib-ertarian and you're okay
Now for us you'll campaign all day"
Now if only someone will do Nader or McKinney...

John Jenkins - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Some of the rhyming is imprecise, but there is much to like about the Libertarian party and this parody.

What John Jenkins said, and it's sad that that party didn't get the coverage it deserved from the media -- or here. Thanks for posting this -- sorry I missed it.
