Greasy’s the Word

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, kids, but I read this over at POLITICO:

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels told supporters in an email early Sunday that he will not run for president in 2012, a decision he said ultimately came down to his family’s reticence about a campaign.

First Haley Barbour, then Mike xChuckleberryx Huckabee, then Donald Trump, and now ol’ Mitch.  If you’re like me, you’re beside yourself with grief.  Well, I know the only thing that will cheer us all up is a song, so warm up those vocal chords, kids!

To the tune of Beauty School Dropout written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, as performed by Frankie Avalon:

Your story, sad to tell,
A Rethug ne’er-do-well,
Most nasty lying scumbag on the block!

Your future’s so unclear now,
What’s left of your career now?
Can’t even get a trade-in on your bile!


Teabaggers: (La lalala lalala lalala…)

Rethuglican dropout,
No nomination day for you.
Rethuglican dropout,
You knew no one would vote for you!
Well it’s too bad,  you took all that time, sharpening your swords,
And spending all that dough to have spin doctors fix your records!

Rethug get moving (Rethug get movin),
Can’t keep your feeble hopes alive,
You were just proving (You were just proving),
You had the dream but not the drive.

We wish that you would vanish, we don’t care about your views,
Look for an opening at Roger Ailes’ Fox News.

Rethuglican dropout (Rethuglican dropout),
Hanging around the Sunday shows.
Rethuglican dropout (Rethuglican dropout),
Why they invite you, heaven knows.

Well, you thought you’re really something,
But in the pressure cooker,
You’re as bad as David Vitter, gettin’ diapered by a hooker!

Rethug don’t sweat it (Don’t sweat it),
You’re not cut out for the top job.
Better forget it (Forget it),
You’re just an unappealing slob!

Now your bangs are curled, you made us hurl, but still you’re so uncool,

Go back to NBC, at least there, you can rule.

Rethug don’t blow it,
Don’t put my good advice to shame.
Rethug you know it,
Even Saint Ronnie’d say the same!

Your chance is shot, get off the block, and have yourself a cry,
Then get all the stuff your PAC money can buy!

Rethuglican dropout (Rethuglican dropout)
Just go away, fool
Rethuglican dropout (Rethuglican dropout)
Just go away, fool
Rethuglican dropout (Rethuglican dropout)
Just go away, fool.

    I love how the rethugs all slam Obama as a horrible president but their “A” team is scurrying away from the chance to beat him in 2012 like roaches when the light is turned on. All that’s left are the dregs and nutcases (not a sharp dropoff there). The reality is that if any of these guys thought they had a snowball’s chance in hell, they’d be lining up for the nomination as they did in ’08 when they thought it would be a slam dunk.

    • that’s part of it, especially with haley barbour, but there’s more with the other guys. daniels doesn’t want to talk about his wife dumping him and his kids to run off with another man. trump was only in it for the publicity for his crappy tv show. chuckleberry was only in it to raise his profile and make more money over at faux news.

      • jeb

        Um yeah, I never would count Trump in their crop of “A” teamers. I told everyone from the beginning that he had no intention of running. The only running he does is from camera to camera for more publicity.

    What the heck are on the various heads – the big wads of silver? Curlers run amok? Radar jammers? A whole lotta beer cans with the ends cut off?
    Sorry, FuhRANKeee doesn’t do it for me. My musical tastes went right from big band to disco, with only Johnny Cash’s early stuff in between. (Yeah, I know that’s weird – and that SURPRISES you? 😀 )

    • you never saw grease? this was a classic musical number.

      • John Erickson

        Ahem. Big bands 1959. Grease = mid 1950s.
        Therefore, if Grease (Big bands, Johnny Cash), then I don’t do it.
        (English is a crutch for people who can’t handle Boolean logic.)

        • no worries, john, this is a full-service blog. if you like johnny cash, the raisin’s gotcha covered.

        • John Erickson

          Hmm. Methinks I detect a subliminal message in the chorus of that old post! You tryin’ to tell me sumthin’? 😉
          I’ve always loved the Man in Black. Took a day off work to get his novel, “Man In White” about Saul’s conversion to Paul, autographed. Got a photo of him signing my book, too. Suppose I should get it evaluated – first edition with verifiable signature, should be worth some good coin. (Not that I’d sell it, unless really desperate.)
          He did a part-talk, part-sung mini-history of the US album. Surprised the rethugs haven’t tried to usurp that for their own purposes. I still remember Reagan announcing he was gonna use “Born In The USA” for his campaign. Un-friggin-believable!

          • i didn’t even know you back then, john, so you know that’s it was all about cornyn.

            this is from politico:

            “John Boehner: Stop using my dad’s name as a punchline, you asshat.” — Artist Rosanne Cash (daughter of Johnny…) in a tweet to Boehner over his use of Johnny’s name in his stump speech.


          • John Erickson

            I know, I was just giving you a hard time. 😉
            Trust me, you don’t want to mess with Roseanne. She is one tough girl – she got her “intestinal fortitude” from BOTH her parents. (You think Johnny went through hell? June went through her own hard times AND everything with Johnny. Hers is a Carter family I can respect.)

  3. 😆 Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy 😆

    That was a blast, Nonnie. I read a Bachmann story today. Her fundaMENTALism was showing:

    “I am convinced in my heart and mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States…We have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play.”

    That would be a Bible curse. She’s so embarrassing. 🙄

    • John Erickson

      You want a link to a site that states all the weather catastrophes in this country recently are because we’ve rejected God’s nation (Israel)? 😀

    • i hope you had fun, m’liss, because i had so much fun with this post. at first, i was just going to go with the pic. then i changed my mind, and i was just going to go with the song. when i finished the song, i thought it would be a shame not to have a pic to go with it, so i wound up doing both.

      i haven’t done a batshit bachmann post in a while, though i’ve had one in mind. maybe this is the time.

      • I loved it. I’ve even thought of an alternative verse for Mitch Daniels:

        ♪ Rethug get moving (Rethug get movin), ♪
        ♪ President Obama is gonna beat us, ♪
        ♪ You were just proving (You were just proving), ♪
        ♪ Can’t be ruled by a man who looks like a fetus. ♪

  4. You are a creative genius! My fav line: Look for an opening at Roger Ailes’ Fox News. With the looney lady from Minnehaha getting in soon, infinite material to work with!

    • aw shucks, frank! 😳 you are way too kind. this almost wrote itself. you know that i’m champing at the bit for batshit bachmann to finally declare.

  5. jean-philippe

    Don’t worry, someone’s gonna pop up.

  6. Now it’s up to all those white-bread suits. Maybe a TV series like American Idolitry could pick a winner. BB could do a Joan of Ark number. The bearwoman could judge, the only thing shes qualified for. Even the Champion-in-waiting, Jebodiah, won’t touch it. So we’re left with no choice and will have to nominate by proclamation Christ H Christy to continue Gods Work ™. Cake for everyone!

    This is amazing – the Republicans are scurrying away, dropping like flies. I bet Palin is thinking she’s got a better chance now that the boys are out of town.

    • scurrying is a good verb to use. that’s what cockroaches do when the lights go on. princess sarah is arrogant, but even she knows she could never, ever win. however, she might stay in it just to remain relevant. too bad for her that she had competition in batshit bachmann. i think the bloom is off the rose, and princess sarah won’t do as well as she might expect.

  9. I’m feeling poetic today:

    They’ve got Newt & They’ve got Mitt
    Like 2 steaming piles of sh**!

  10. Nons…I might not comment here a lot but I sure do enjoy your sense of humor!! 🙂

  11. OMG. I feel like I’ve missed a(nother) major part of my American heritage. . .
    I’ve never seen this Grease thingama-movie, and “Beauty School Dropout” is as alien to me as intelligence is to Princess Sarah. . . But still I can appreciate the genius of putting Ronnie in a halo and a jump suit! Awesome!
