Because I Said I Would

I wasn't really serious about this. Not really.

But then another commenter named Aaron wrote this brilliant bit:

"Song of the Voters of America"
Chorus:
We have come to plug out noses
We have come to punch a chad
And we all agree the choices both are bad


We would like to vote third party
Show the GOP the door
But remember this, Obama scares us more

So I thought it might be fun to do what I said I'd do:

Voter's Anthem:

Refrain:
It is time, we have chosen
We'll go vote for one or other,
We're not happy with our choices
But we'll go vote anyway.
Campaign signs, VP blunders,
ESCR--what a pain!
We don't like him, we don't want him
But we still pick John McCain.

Then how can we stand justified? How can we vote this way?
No one else we can support now, we'll just vote against The One
Who's the guy for Big Abortion, who'll sign FOCA before long,
Who thinks he can heal the planet, who's all wrong. (Refrain)

Then how are we to stand at all, shills for the GOP?
No; we all hate ESCR, but we still have to defeat
That same guy for Big Abortion, who'll sign FOCA before long,
Who thinks he can heal the planet, who's all wrong. (Refrain)

No paeans to John McCain from me; no uncritical unthinking partisanship. Just an unhappy acceptance of the reality of this election, and a hope that we won't find ourselves fighting to save the pro-life movement from a legion of legal restrictions and a gaggle of pro-abort SCOTUS judges by the time this is all over.
