The Lyrics

He can rant, he can rave, commentary cuts like knife,
Insults hurl, hear him scream, diggin' on ranting Dean.
Tuesday night and the polls are closed,
Howie's up and he's predisposed.
All he needed was music, he was in the swing,
He thought he was booked for the king.
Anybody could beat that guy,
Full of dung as the comics fly,
Now he's going all spastic, he must be high on wine,
He's in the mood for a rant.
And so he took the chance...

He is the ranting Dean, "take your seat" ODed on caffeine,
Ranting Dean, carry on like it's halloween.
He can rant, he can rave, commentary cuts like knife,
Insults hurl, hear him scream, diggin' on ranting Dean.

You're a cheeser you'll soon be gone,
Bridges burning, you're hanging on.
You're not like any other, soon you will be through,
He's in the mood for a rant.
And so he took the chance...

He is the ranting Dean, "take your seat" ODed on caffeine,
Ranting Dean, carry on like it's halloween.
He can rant, he can rave, commentary cuts like knife,
Insults hurl, hear him scream, diggin' on ranting Dean.

Guy - another good Dean parody - I hope you send him a thank you note for all of the top ten parody material he has provided for you.

Thanks one and all for votes and comments. I really wish he would have won NH but I knew it wasn't in the cards. My reasons are not political. It is just that he will soon drop below the radar and I'll have to find another source for cannon fodder. Don't you just love this guy?

Good political humor, though the pacing and rhymes could have been a little better. 4-5-5 here!
