The Lyrics

Newsweek now has him at 26 percent: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19352087/site/newsweek. That's lower than any President in the TV era except Richard Nixon, who bottomed out at 23. So what happens first, Bush passes Nixon, or Barry Bonds passes Hank Aaron, as Aaron passed Babe Ruth in Nixon's last year? His previous low was 28 percent, so he bypassed 27. But you know the rule: I have to post one for 27 before I do one for 26, so here goes.
(instrumental opening)

It is such a shame.
He is at twenty-seven.
Losing at this game.
He is at twenty-seven.

We must be strong
and carry on
'cause because he's been so wrong...

Twenty-seven.

He should have been canned
'fore he reached twenty-seven.
Most of us can't stand
this guy at twenty-seven.

Along the way
the U.S.A.
we all know he's gone astray.

Twenty-seven.

(instrumental break)

Beyond Al Gore
we've been so poor
hurricanes, bad judges, war...

Twenty-seven.

It is such a shame.
He is at twenty-seven.
Losing at this game.
He is at twenty-seven.

We must be strong
and carry on
'cause because he's been so wrong...

Twenty-seven.

(instrumental close)

The hit-and-one'ers are at it again. I thought it was clever, so 5s from me.
Can we expect a new parody for each new low he hits?

Yeah, he's mediocre. How do you suppose things would have turned out if Clinton had been elected for a third term - or if Al Gore had won by a few more electoral votes?

I guess everybody left in the 26 percent voted. The ones smart enough to be able to use a computer, anyway. I'm still waiting for "Sarcastic Paranoid," "Coral Snake," "Proud American" or Linda Terhune to say, "One man and God is a majority." Which wouldn't apply here, of course.

For some reason, Michael Pacholek has been a long-term target for the 1s brigade. I wrote a tribute parody to him "Lets Shake Hands With Sir Michael Pacholek". Ok - I got the pronounciation of his surname completely wrong, but even so, I still got hammered with 1-votes. I feel that this was due to the topic (about Michael Pacholek) rather than less than perfect pacing.

It's not "the 1s brigade," it's "the vicious right-wingers who can't accept that the country is sick and tired of their boy." To flip Michael Dukakis' slogan, it's about ideology, not competence. By the way, what happened to the parody I submitted with "Twenty-Six" in the title? I thought it was pretty good. There was a reference to Bush's pants being on fire, but it was due to lying ("Liar, liar, pants..."), not due to a sex theme. So what gives?

Boy, imagine if Pacholek knew that Harry Reid's approval rating is at 19%... or that the witch-hunting Nifong was a Dim Crap just like all the other witch-hunters... Apparently, he thinks we won't notice because Weak News is going on about its heavily biased poll on Bush. By the looks of things, anywhere from 70-80% of this country is fed up with everyone, including those losers in Congress who came in promising a change and proceeded to spend like potted sailors (drunken sailors weren't good enough for them anymore), push Kennedy's amnesty bill, and bring us the sequel no one wanted to see, Hillarycare II. Republicans are back on the rise, though only by comparison to the Dims... and also by virtue of having kissed off Bloomberg. (Bye bye, you baby-slaughtering gun-hating fag-worshipping RINO!)

There's a difference, boy: Most of the country doesn't even know who Harry Reid is. So how are they gonna approve somebody they don't know? But everybody knows Bush, and all but 26 percent know he's a bum. And "the amnesty bill" goes down in history as Bush's baby. And considering that your boys WON'T spend what we need on our soldiers and sailors, you're in no position to talk. Do you get it? You and your boys had your chances, and you blew it, and the American people hate you now. They want us back.

So, Michael, you are saying that people disapprove of Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, because they are unenlightened. But when these same unenlightened people disapprove of the President, you think that statistic is relevant? You can’t have it both ways, MP.
