Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

"POTUS", for those who may not know, stands for "President Of The United States" - something the extreme left hasn't seen since 1980. (Clinton was a centrist, in spite of his spouse.) But hope springs eternal, especially with the children of the sixties . . .
(Spoken) (Hey John, Hey Howard. Tell 'em who we are!)

Well, we're big left-wingers. We own all the singers
And we're loved everywhere we go! (Like Hollywood.)
We talk about equal distribution of wealth
While suckin' up Union dough. (Pass mine!)
We take all kinda polls to help with all kinda goals
but the goal on which we're bent,
Is the goal of the flower children back in power,
An elected left-wing President.

CHORUS:

PRES-I-DENT
Wanna see a POTUS from the left wing
-DENT
Wanna see it looking just like west wing
-DENT
Wanna fill the White House with
An elected left-wing President.

We got a creepy old lady name o' H.R. Clinton
Who enjoys being our queen.
We got some poor old gray-haired hippies,
Tryin' hard to keep us green.
Now it's all designed, with power in mind
Gotta keep folks discontent.
'Cause if they keep on bitchin' they might buy us pitchin'
An elected left-wing President.

CHORUS

(SCREAMED) REAGAN BLOWS!!!!!
(Chanting in lieu of wild guitar riff)
"HELL NO WE WON'T GO! NO SUV'S! SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!"
Oh, dat is beautiful!

We got a lot o' little teenaged wide-eye newbies,
who believe anything we say.
We got a genuine civil rights hero delivering the Blacks and gays.
We got all the votes that welfare can buy
And our party is a great big tent.
But we keep gittin' weirder and the country's a-feared o'
An elected left-wing President!

CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

(Spoken)
Top spot! Right on top, man.
I can see it now,
With Hillary up there smilin'.
Aww, beautiful.

Add a bit of MAKE LOVE NOT WAR!! and SAVE THE RAINFOREST!! Mr. Bill did get some criticism from his left, but if she gets in there, Mrs. Bill won't have that problem.

It is a lot easier to poke fun at political scandals and political eccentricities (such as poor pronunciation) than it is to poke fun at political ideology. This parody does an excellent job of finding humor in left wing ideology. Well done, Pooch!

Steve K. What IF? She's a lock in '08. Don't you recognize the anti-Christ when you see her? LOL! John: Thank you, sir! We tries!

With the way things are going, I doubt the Democrats will exist much longer....

Frankly, Mr. Mac - and I say this as a religious Republican - I think the religious right is cruising for a backlash. Nothing topples the powerful like arrogance, and several on our side of the fence have been showing an awful lot of that lately. But this is a fun site, not a debate site, so I will keep further comments on THAT subject at www.debategate.com/3DHS.

Mr. Mac is absolutely right. I'm wasting away to practically nothing!

well, the last time there was a leftie Prez might have been 24 years ago sure, but the last time the nation elected one was only 4 years ago, so things aren't so bad - nice OS for the job, Stray - 555

Oh, surrrre... NOW you say The Last President, Bill Clinton, was a "centrist!" Back in the good old days, people like you said he was a Communist! Incidentally, Pooch, your boy Jerry Fallwell says the Antichrist is alive today, and he's a Jew. Which lets off Bill AND Hillary. Unless, of course, Jumbo Jerry is wrong. Naw, he could never be wrong... As for owl, it doesn't cook well. Now, elephant, that's delicious, but you have to remove the bullets from the feet first... Stuart: 24 years ago (1980), the President was Jimmy Carter. Carter was no lefty, it just seemed like it compared to the fascist who replaced him.

yes, that was my point also - I agree with you - I was just slyly referring to the fact that Gore was elected, according to one method (ie.. vote-counting) only 4 years ago
Stray Pooch - December 31, 2004 - Report this comment
Let's see, I'm Mormon so Jerry Falwell is NOT my friend. Further, I have never endorsed his viewpoints (which, leaving aside interfaith squabbling, are borderline insane - and frequently over the line). I never said Clinton was a commie. The commies had balls. (Of course, like Clinton, their balls ended up causing their downfall - lol!) In spite of left wing myth Al Gore was never elected President under any criteria. Jimmy Carter was as left wing as any President ever elected. (He was, however, an honest liberal - which was possible in those days.) Carter was and is a very good man, but a lousy President. He destroyed the intelligence capabilities of the nation, acquiesed to the Soviet presence in Cuba, presided over double-digit inflation and surrendered our national pride to a third-rate Imam in Iran. His major military achievement was the destruction of a rabbit. This from a naval veteran, I might add, who ought to have known the importance of military strength. If his successor was a fascist, we need more fascists. But of course, Reagan was not. He was a President with a realist view of the world, which history has vindicated. Camp David was great, but Carter's greatest legacy was bungling the job enough to piss the electorate into choosing Reagan.

Pshaw... petty American politics. All of you should know the Canadians have a superior political system anyway. Oh yeah, and before you point out how America has a much more powerful military, let me remind you that Canada gets to benefit from America's actions without having to give their own lives or kill their own economy. All the while, they still get to keep a much more positive image among the world as being polite and intelligent. Pretty neat trick, eh?

MrMacphisto: HA!! I know what you Canadians are up to! I have, through application of the skills I obtained in my days with the US Army Special Security Group, found and decoded (from the original HTML) your DIABOLICAL PLANS for world domination. To quote the great General and American Hero GEORGE WASHINGTON "Sadly, I can see no way of preventing this . . ." For those who wish to know the UGLY TRUTH about CANDIAN WORLD DOMINATION you may type this in your browser. http://cwd.ptbcanadian.com/index2.html BE PREPARED TO BE VERY POLITELY SHOCKED!!!

Of course I TYPED "CANADIAN WORLD DOMINATION" but it was somehow MYSTERIOUSLY CHANGED to "CANDIAN." The diabolical agents of CWD have infiltrated my computer and are modifying my posts to make me appear bumbling and foolish. Hey, wait a minute . . . GOOD LORD! THEY'VE GOTTEN TO PRESIDENT BUSH!!!!!!!
