The Lyrics

The Republicans continue to embarass themselves. They make these parodies way to easy. (Verse 1, Line 3, by the way, refers to the attacks on several Election Headquarters last year, in case anyone wondered. Funny thing...only one GOP office got attacked.....Mr. Cantor here in VA. I don't trust that little weasel.... I kinda' wonder if it wasn't self-inflicted to load the issue.....)
Election day In 2008: November;
They cast their votes.....,
Throwing bricks thru windows, chanting as they go,
As they're screaming out the only words they know.
"You are Barack....You are a Muslim...",

Rush Lim-baugh, his hatred deep and fright'ning,
The lies he'll perpetrate.
He has great need for censorship; the man is just insane.
Talk so much 'bout nothing, he'll complain:
"You are Barack....You are a black man...."

This talk of Palin,
We've heard all her words before;
She's writing it in her memoirs.
I won't believe that dumb broad, and others who have lied.
Yes, she sounded even dumber when she cried:
"You are Barack....You are a Socialist..."

They have their kooks....and more at Fox News to protect them;
And now there's Haley Barbour....
Sings a different tune, preaching gloom & doom.
I hear the words of one Mike Huckabee:
"You are Barack, You are a Kenyan...",


But Barack feels no pain;
And a Republican always lies.

Jeff - A good parody is a good parody, so I'll give you your due. Throwing a brick through your own headquarters window is a time-honored and well-documented Chicago dirty political trick. On whole, I would guess that you're not planning to support George Allen's comeback (lol). ;D

Very clever and well done, Jeff. But i think Barack should be singing this: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/simonandgarfunkel121.shtml

George Allen is a racist and a crook. I want to do a parody of his "Macaca" moment!

Too mean-spirited to be funny, and besides the incidents are not current.

Hey, Jeff "I will set a new record here for political parodies" from R,VA. 1332 parodies to go before you beat Will Tong. Better get crackin'. 1 a month aint gonna cut it. Glad you brought up Rush. The other day Rush played a clip from his show of 2 years ago about Pres. Hussein closing down Gitmo. Rush said it's a lie. Gitmo is still open and Rush knew it would be. Thanks Rush for showing us what a lying P.O.S. Pres. Hussein is.

Clearly, Jeff, you've hit a nerve. Hit a few more. Besides, you're good at it.

He's writes parodies like Obama governs, pathetically and full of hubris.
