A musical tribute (again to a sixties tune) to the lower tier Republican candidates in Iowa, who might just drop out soon (well, actually Bachmann already has).

Perry, Bachmann, and Jon
(to the tune of Abraham, Martin, and John)

Has anybody here seen my old friend Rick Perry?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He scared a lot of people,
But it seems he lost his memory.
You know, I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend Bachmann?
Can you tell me where she's gone?
She gave a lot of speeches,
But her campaign staff deserted.
I just looked around and she's gone.

Anybody here seen my friend Jon Huntsman?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He was Barack’s ambassador,
So the Tea Party despised him.
I just looked 'round and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to sell us on the GOP?
And we will see
Some day soon, there’s gonna be a nominee ...

Anybody here seen my friend Newt Gingrich?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walk up over the hill,
With Perry, Bachmann, and Jon.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
