The Lyrics

When Biden goes up to speak, whooooooah
He'll hijack the campaign, all right
Just by making a gaffe, quite a big one, whooooooah
An embarrassing sight
He told em that Bain will
"Put y'all back on the chain gang"

When our Veep goes out of control, whoooooah
Soon it's all over the news of the world
Strapped to a roof like a dog we knew well, whoooooah
Put foot in his mouth on a visit down South
"Don't Wall Street unchain or
They'll put y'all back on the chain gang"

The big GOP
Is happy when they hear the news
'Cause Joe Biden, he
Made it less likely Mitt would lose
People wonderin' if it's about race
Or an innocent slip of the tongue
Biden has egg on his face
For saying that one....

When Biden goes up to speak, whoooooooah
The Dems should bring duct-tape along
There's no breaks in the battle, for the White House, whooooooah
There's no room for doing things wrong

"Don't Wall Street unchain or
They'll put y'all back on the chain gang"

The problem is not that it now doesn't look so bad in light of what Todd Akin said. The problem isn't even that Romney has said lots of things much worse. The problem is that what Biden said is TRUE. It wasn't a gaffe, any more than "You didn't build that!" was.

Lemme guess, Richard Wang, you and the "EFW" jerk who vomited all over my other parody are one and the same?

HU: If I am reading the above correctly, you think Michael is using these aliases? Not at all. Wang and the person with the varied 3-letter initials are right-wing and they seen to be knocking Michael every chance they get. I reported a number of their personal attacks on him yesterday - hopefully those have been removed. Michael is left-wing and ALWAYS has the courage to sign his name to any comments he makes. If I read you wrong, my apologies.

Pacing, not 100% perfect but close, humor - I like the dog line, overall not bad. You get 4-4-4 from me.

Joe Biden's verbal diarhea will be his chains when the v.p. debates take place. Paul Ryan, whose I.Q. is at least double Uncle Joe's, will feel pity after thoroughly mopping the floor with him. Joe might even wet himself. 555 for yanking the lefties chain.
