The Wreck of the Obama-Biden (with apologies to Gordon Lightfoot)
The velveted paws of the typing tabby | 08-19-2012 | grey_whiskers

The Wreck of the Obama-Biden

The Legend lives on from Chicago on Down
of the group that they call “The Tea Party”
This hate group, they say, loves to eat Chik-Fil-A
and their votes in November are hearty.
With a deficit score some fifteen trillion more
than the Obama-Biden had starting
That good ticket and proud was lost like Maureen Dowd
when November’s Red State surge came early.

The ship was the pride of the Democrat side
who swore they would take back Wisconsin
As the Socialists go, it was lefter than most
‘cause they came from Chicago or Harvard
rounded out with some hacks who came from Goldman Sachs
who hadn’t paid all of their own tax
And later that term did they all start to squirm
could it be a subpoena they were fearing?

The oil prices gave a tell-tale jump
and the gas-prices leaped at the pump
And every man knew, as the Pres’dent did too
was the ghost of Jimmy Carter come stealin’
Healthcare came late and gay marriage had to wait
after November of Two Thousand And Ten
When the votes all came in, the House had caved in
in the face of a Teanami maelstrom

In their first campaign they sounded quite lame,
“Stand up, Chuck!” (God love you, what am I sayin’?)
In the second campaign, to discredit Bain, Obama said,
“Fellas, you didn’t build that.”
Axelrod wired in, no donations came in
their supporters had gone into hidin’.
And in every town where the teleprompter went down
‘twas the wreck of the Obama-Biden.

Does anyone know where Election Night goes
when Red States turn the minutes to hours?
The pundits all guess they’d have won the Midwest
if they’d put Governor Walker behind ‘em.
They might have split up and put Hillary in
if they hadn’t been called out by Palin
And all that remains are the feces (no names)
of the Occupy Wall Street crowd failin’.

Illinois cheats, and New York repeats
as the bluest, of deep-blue-state havens
California gleams, like a socialist’s dreams
Its coastland and cities progressive
And in the East, Washington, DC at least
takes in all the taxes they send her
And elections go as Congressmen know
as the Tea Party in November remembers

In a far-left-wing Church in Chicago they prayed,
in “Bill Ayers’ Communist Cathedral”
The church bell chimed, it rang fifty-seven times
for each state sinking Obama-Biden
The Legend lives on from Chicago on Down
of the group that they call “The Tea Party”
Republicans, they said, made the map turn pure red
when the Teanami of November came early!

...I knew Obama was going to fail when the infamous "Joker" poster appeared:

You can't be worshipped as the Messiah while people are laughing at you.

Let's keep the laughter and the pressure ON.

Cheers!

This is inspired and really hits the mark! I recently did a mashed up post derivative of "Lunatic Fringe."

I don't think anyone recognized it.

I like how Gordon references the lake by the Indian name in the first stanza, then when he’s bookending it all he calls it ‘Superior’ in the last. Just sayin’

That *was* a really nice touch of him.

That being said, there's nothing nicer than sitting on the rocks on the edge of Superior watching the waves come in. There used to be a billboard on I-494 outside of Minneapolis with a long shot of the Superior shore looking out over the lake, with the simple caption "Fire Your Therapist."

Re: your tagline -- "Let us not be like those who say, 'Let us vote Goode, that evil may come.' Their condemnation is just."

Cheers!
