The Lyrics

There needs to be a separation between religious fundamentalists of all kinds and the politics of their respective countries.
Don’t know much about history
Not interested in biology
Got no use for any science book
See the Russians when out I look

But I do know that I’ll lead you
And If you follow you can be me too
What a wonderful girl, that’s me.

Don’t know much about paleology
Don’t like to hear Darwin’s theory
Don’t want a bridge goin’ to nowhere
Don’t want to return the money from there.

So I rejected that bridge for you
And if I could be your “number two”
What a magical world I foresee.

Now, I will claim to be a maverick
That’s what I’m claiming to be.
So maybe by claiming that I’m a maverick
I can get you to vote for me.

Don’t know much about e-theory
Don’t want to see Darwin’s tree
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t discuss the Ussher* hook

But I do know that I’m for you
And I know that if I’m your number two
You could raise your kids like me.

La ta ta ta ta ta ta
(Archeology)
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
(E Theory)
La ta ta ta ta ta ta
(Science Sucks)
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
(Money I took)

But I know Barack’s a terrorist
Those anti-Americans are on my list
Join my group and get me to DC.
Paleology: the study of (especially prehistoric) antiquities. *In 1640 Ussher produced his famous calculation that the Earth was created in 4004 BC Evolution is a fact, not theory, and details of the process are the argument. It is a fact that the earth is more than 4.5 billion years old. Sarah thinks the earth is 6000 years old . How can we trust someone with a Creationist View to make decisions on science and technology?

Here is my parody of the judicial system to the tune of the Rolling Stones "Satisfaction". Chorus: Though I pled, and I moved, and I filed, and I tried, I can't get no, no satisfaction.(*) (hahah) pretty cute and funny, eh? (*) The play on words in the judicial context refers to the fact that there is real no satisfaction of judgement even when rendered after filing, pleading and moving the court. There's the irony of petitioning a system that is incapable of rendering perfect justice, or else no one would be there in the first place. That is, if they had any authority to rectify, they would be obligated to prevent injustice.
