The Lyrics

I watched the democratic debate on TV last night. My time would have been better spent watching haircuts. All I heard is how bad this current administration is but nothing substantial on what they would do positively to make things better If all they have is smear then get ready for four more with Bush. Rappers could get some good material from all the anger coming out of them. It just screamed for this parody.
Here it is September, campaignin' are these clowns,
Vows of blust'ry sore men conclusions they expound.
Though the battle rages tryin' their best to run,
It's a blunder, all that thunder, screw your campaign.

You ain't got it in ya, speakin' transfer for reform,
Watched you guys on cable, you crave that power so.
Got your scams and raw deals trap and hold in chains,
All that thunder, means you'll plunder, screw your campaign.

Point your finger sayin', how they robbed Al Gore,
You clowns won't work together, to keep us from harm.
You need to stop your roarin' knock off all the smears,
Put asunder, knuckle under, learn to campaign.

Short, but you really got the point over. I really enjoyed it! Good job.

Thanks Pat, This is just part I. Part II will be out tomorrow on a simular song by CCR.

I missed the debate, I guess I made the right decision watching haircuts =) I really hope they weren't still whining about the 2000 election that Gore got robbed. I actually agree that Gore got screwed, but it's over...whining about it's not going to change anything at this point. I am not a Bush fan (I'll skip the war debates, but "spend more money, tax less" just doesn't make sense to me), so I hope that aside from bashing him, they also come up with something constructive as an alternative, otherwise, it'll be just as bad with a democrat in office. Okay...I'm done. I only rant politically once or twice a year (the other time was Amiright Idol when we had to write a political parody), so here it is =) Also, the parody was well written.

To clarify Guy, your parody was well written (wasn't referring to mine)

Hey congrats for your Amiright Award nomination ! Did you see it?

No I did not. I had no idea. I guess I better look around for it. I just mostly hang out on this part of the board.

I'm not voting because I don't want my political biases to influence assessment of your artistic talent. But I hope you don't take offense if I say irony abounds in the fact that the metaphorical 'rain' was the Vietnam War. (The literal rain came down in Woodstock; but Fogerty is obviously going elsewhere.) It's an anti-war song used here in not-so-indirect support of a war-waging party. Fogerty uses this song as a war of words to criticize one of bombs. Your interpretation contradicts nearly perfectly the literal or implied intentions of the songwriter which could certainly work tongue-in-cheek because then you have the full ironic symmetry, but you're pretty serious here, therefore effectively ridiculing the songwriter who in this case did a remarkable job writing the song. That is, it seems to me one can send up liberals/Democrats with a bad liberal song but not a good one. Thanks for your indulgence

The debate was great. Kerry, Graham and (surprisingly) Edwards were awesome. Sharpton, though he can't win, did well. Dean wasn't very good, which puts him on a par with Gephardt's usual. Is it just me, or does Dennis (I'm strong to the finish, 'cause I am) Kucinich look like he could be Ross Perot's younger brother? Bottom line: Any of them could do a better job than Bush. Hell, JENNA Bush could do better.

When it comes to jobs that suck that much, even IŽd do a better job!
