  5. I especially liked the bit about Romney's assault on the boy at prep school. I hope that haunts him the rest of his life. God, I hate bullies!

  8. They should play this at the Democratic convention.

    (one snarky comment: "not blinking" when you are being filmed does not make you more intense or interesting. It simply turns the focus from what you are saying into my inner dialogue of "I wonder if they are going to blink?")

  10. Rick, the Trayvon picture came with the lyrics "locked and loaded". Why not?

  11. Daniel, Trayvon physically assaulted another being.

  12. I stopped watching the moment the image of Trayvon Martin came on screen, and the new lyrics suggested Romney and his tribe are "locked and loaded” to kill more. As horrible his election would be for the country [and world], that's indefensible, as insane as any Birther; right down there with the rhetoric of the Fred Phelps inbreds whose image they flash moments later. As for the idea of using this song in relation to the election, San Francisco's "Beach Blanket Babylon" has been doing that for at least a year—and more creatively: in counterpoint to singers playing Repugs. A few months ago, they inserted the lyrics: “I'm a wealthy Mormon man/ And I live a very grateful life/ I have 12 houses/ But one, hard working wife/ Barack, I think you know your fate/ I’ll be the winning candidate/ One day more.”

  13. I thought this was kind of embarrassing, but whatever.

  14. Greta idea, but the lyrics could have been cleaner, simpler and more fun in places... words like pernicious really bump the average viewer... still an A for effort.

  15. Bravo! Outstanding. We all must turn out and vote on election day or perish.

  16. We want a jedi, not a sith ... classic

  17. Never mind that Phelps of the Westboro Church/ hate group is a Democrat who has run for office repeatedly as a Democrat.

    Don't let facts get in the way.

  18. Absolutely great. Fantastic job by all who had any input in this rendition. Let's remember, One More Term.
