The Lyrics

The guy ain’t grieving. . .made his day.
The caucus results—what a surprise, he won!
He ain’t exactly the Hawkeye state’s favorite son;
Some voters had a change of heart.

Mitty, whoa! dude’s that number:
Right now he’s sitting on the top shelf.
“Couldn’t do any better, what the hell?!”
Kibitzed enough to jump him
To the top spot. . .nearly blown
Was the win; did just eight votes better
Than Rick the Gnome.

Mitt had some friends around, so he gained
Just enough votes to barely beat the schmoe
Whose name means what from hind can flow.
Some voters had a change of heart

Mitty, whoa! dude’s that number:
For the moment, he’s on the top shelf.
“Couldn’t do any better, what the hell?!”
Kibitzed enough to jump him
To number 1. . .nearly blown
Was the win; did just eight votes better
Than Rick the Gnome.

So many say he ain’t their kind,
But they want the White House next time. . .
Held nose as with a rank fart.

Mitty, whoa! cruised to number 1
Now, at least, he’s on the top shelf.
“Couldn’t do any better, what the hell?!”
Kibitzed some who’d not dump him,
Though with their votes came a groan.
There were several that they liked better. . .
Those chances blown.

Ms. B. is gone, but bum-spurt
Eponym had close numbers.

They'll only let me give you a 5... not an 8.

He didn't "cruise to number 1", he barely made it by 8 measley votes over Santorum after spending a huge amount of cash on his campaign in all forms! 5s for the parody, but get the facts straight!

It's a parody, not a news report, Patriot. Get with the Gestalt.

Thanks, MP.

Enjoyed this a lot. It's going to be a interesting finish, and that's thinking conservatively.

JB, no you need to get your facts straight. This year the winner also just gets a proportional part of the votes, not 100% either. By no means does Romney have it in the bag right now. We won't know until after Super Tuesday or longer... depending on who stays in and what states favor WHOM...
