All my rowdy mavericks are here on Monday night

Hank Williams Jr. has written an execrable song to herald the suckfest that is the McCain campaign in the final month.

It opens with an attack on the “left wing liberal media” (redundancy alert), makes the argument that “John N Sarah” would make governing decisions based on the “sniff test”, moves into an incredibly simpleminded GOP talking points explanation of the economic crisis (Fannie and Freddie and loans to minorities are to blame for everything! And don’t listen to any of those so called economists, they’re all a bunch of liberals) before concluding with a truly baffling metaphor about a mama bear in Idaho.

It was played this morning on NPR, and suffice it to say that Mellencamp’s insipid “This is Our Country” is a masterpiece by comparison.

McCain – Palin Tradition
By Hank Williams Jr.

The left wing liberal media have
Always been a real close knit family
But, most of the American People
Don’t believe em anyway ya see
Stop and think it over
Before you make your decision
If they smell something
They’re gonna come down strong
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

Now this old Union’s got problems
That is plain to see
The Democrats bankrupted Fannie Mae N Freddie Mac
Just like 1, 2, 3
The bankers didn’t want to make all those bad loans,
But Bill Clinton said you got to
Now they want a bail out, what I’m talking about
Is a Democrat liberal who doo

John N Sarah tell ya
Just what they think
And they’re not gonna blink
And they’re gonna fix this country
Cause they’re just like you N ole Hank
Yes John is a maverick
And Sarah fixed Alaska’s broken condition
They’re gonna go just fine
We’re headed for better times
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

I am very proud of America’s name
But no society is perfect
And we have had our stains
If I’m down at the coffee shop and
Somebody wants to give our flag friction
We say please move on
Cause we’re standing strong
That’s an old John McCain tradition


Some are bound to tell you I’m
Preaching to the choir
And that is very true
And we are going even higher
Like a mama bear in Idaho
She’ll protect your family’s condition
If you mess with her cubs
She’s gonna take of the gloves
It’s an American female tradition


Yo, Bocephus – what about your penchant for choking teenage girls who fail to succumb to your time tested pickup line, “I’m Hank Williams Jr., bitch!” – is that also a tradition?

Just like you, man. I got the shotgun, you got the briefcase. All in the game, though, right?
