The Lyrics

If George Will or Bob Dole try to take credit for this, I will have my lawyers on them pronto.BTW, any thoughts on why the sitting president is referred to simply as Obama, and the former speaker, senator, and governor are referred to as if they still were in office?
How can it be permissible
He has no moral principle,yeah yeah
His Reagan ties are mythical
He's uber-hypocritical
Yesteryear I'd endorse, he was a powerful force
But I can't back him now, 'cause the boy's run his course
He used to look good to me, but now I find him

Simply unelectable
Simply unelectable

His pompousness is palpable, huh
His arguments are laughable
The " Speakers'" now unspeakable
He's eminently beatable

He's broken the law, he's a man I abhor
He deserves the abuse, he's become so obtuse
He used to look good to me , but now I find him

Simply unelectable
Simply unelectable

(Simply unelectable) He's so lyin', he's not tellin' whence the money came
(Simply unelectable) He's denyin' lobbyin's the only way to go

He's a chameleon, he switches wives at will
He's so damn smarmy that he gives my bones a chill
He changed religions 'cause the Pope gave him a thrill
He used to look good to me , but now I find him

Simply unelectable
He's so lyin', he's not tellin' whence the money came
(Simply unelectable) He's denyin' lobbyin's the only way to go

His haughtiness is visible
His ethics unacceptable
His countenance is risible, huh
He's overtly dismissible

Yesteryear I'd endorse, he was a powerful force
But I can't back him now, 'cause the boy's run his course
He used to look good to me, but now I find him

Simply unelectable
Simply unelectable

He's so lyin', he's not tellin' whence the money came
(Simply unelectable) He's denyin' lobbyin's the only way to go
He's so lyin', he's not tellin' whence the money came
(Simply unelectable) He's denyin' lobbyin's the only way to go

Simply unelectable

It's been a while since I did "Simply Indefensible" for Bush, but to see the various defenses of Gingrich is simply inexcusable.

Military ranks and political titles are still retained after service as long as the person is alive. Presidents Carter, Bush Sr., Clinton, and George W Bush are still Mr. President. Generals and Admirals, etc... are too.

The original song is a favorite of mine, adn while politics usually arent this parody was great. 2012 will be an election with no good choices to vote for. : /

Not 100% behind your sentiments here, but great parody nonetheless - 555

Squire - I hope I never have to box with you. You have a devastating "left" hook! I'll return when the one bomber either leaves me alone or dies horribly and painfully...preferrably the latter. ;D

Brilliant.. one of those "I wish I'd thought of it" ideas. It is about Newt Gingrich, isn't it? Though so much could apply to so many..
Squire Malloy - February 03, 2012 - Report this comment
Yeah, it was Newt. Thanks to all of you for your kind and clever comments.I am humbled and appreciative. R.I.P. Robert Palmer, a great talent.

Great parody. Being a chameleon can be a positive trait, if you're David Bowie but then again he ain't doing any crimes. We need some bathing suit beauties to go with this nice parody. R.I.P. Robert Palmer, we need you more now than ever
