My Fair Maverick

The foreign policy expert, John McCain, has stepped in a little something. But instead of wiping off his shoes at the earliest opportunity, he has chosen to insist that his shoes are clean, and go walking over the nice clean carpet.

Anyone can step in a little something. It takes a special kind of person to stay the course and deny it once the stink starts getting strong.

McCain’s campaign is plainly pained by Spain
Explain, McCain, don’t strain your brain in vain
Complain, McCain, maintain that Spain’s arcane
Abstain, McCain, refrain from staining Spain!

It’s plain, in Spain, McCain has sprained his brain
The bane of his campaign, Spain will remain
His gains will wane—the sane disdain his train
A strain that his campaign cannot contain

(It entertains, I ascertain,
So once again, I’ll pop champagne!)

(No, it does not fit the melody, so don't even try)

ETA: Hmph. Time came up with a similar idea. At least for their title.

I've got to be there in November,
Propped up and looking in my prime,
Press, come and kiss me,
Tell me you miss me,
And get me to the polls on time!


I could have lied all night
I could have lied all night
And still have lied some more


All I want is a nucl'ar strike,
Far away from what white folks like,
Ein land, ein volk, ein reich,
Oh, wouldn't it be loverly?
