To be sung to:

In 20 & 12 Mitt took a little trip
Looking Presidential-like and sticking to the script.
He took on Diplomacy with cheers all around
Till he met the bloody British down in good ole London Town.

(chorus 1)
He spoke out loud & the Brits began to mumble;
He wasn't nigh as charming as he was a while ago.
He spoke once more & they began to rumble,
"Perhaps, Old Chap, it's time for you to go."

"You must elect for President a Real American
So all you Anglo-Saxon types can fit back in again.
Without a true Atlanticist our allies will be scared,
'Cause 'others' can't appreciate the heritage we share."
(chorus 1)

Oh, when he got to London Town, he took'em by surprise;
He fired off all his insults right in front of British eyes.
The Mayor rose before the crowd & he began to yell
And 60,000 voices joined & really gave'em...Well,

Yea, they ran their plan & commenced a #RomneyShambles;
The #MittHitstheFan in the tweeting of the Brits.
They ran so fast that the press couldn't catch'em
On down the River Thames to the shouts of Mitt the Twit.

He fired off all his insults till relations melted down,
Then he opened up his mouth again & fired another round.
So off he goes to Poland now & leaves this row behind,
And the Brits are left to wonder, "Has America lost its mind?"

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.
