Hunter suggested the right needed a catchy tune to promote social programs almost everyone has taken advantage of. Not sure if this qualifies, but it seems to fit the current GOP agenda...

The Ballad of Mitt "Clampett" Romney
(To the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies Theme)

With apologies to Paul Henning

Come and listen to a story about a man named Mitt
A rich entitled prick liked to talk a lot of shit
Then one day he was shootin' off his mouth,
Appealing to the bigots that they got down south.

Teabaggers that is, whites only, Texas crackers.

Well as you all know ol' Mitt's a millionaire,
Koch brothers said "Mitt move away from there"
Said "White House is the place you ought to be"
So you can cut the taxes for yourself and me.

0% on Capital gains, raise taxes on the poor folks, laugh.

Well now its time to say good bye to FDR's new deal.
Role back regulations and giggle as we steal.
Then gonna end social programs for the needy
And take whatever's left cuz we're rich and greedy

Occupy this, bitches!. Get the fuck out. Poor folks will be shot.

Don't come back now, y'hear?.

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.
