King of the Rotten

If I was king of all the rotten
stealing filth from those forgotten
would you be my queen of this desperate land, do you give a damn?

What if I had to scold you
listen once but never tried and true
What if I had to trade you for another man, do you think I can?

I won't call on the angels, no
beatin' on the line as I turn to amputate...
I'm bleeding on you

I think Diva/Nunly needs to have a Convention. You bring the funny hats and the okjimm can bring the beer and donuts. The Secretary of Strawberries and Cream can entertain us with one of her famous (and wise) speeches.

Um, head banging: one day I feel inclined to bang my head against the wasll after I see the photo "Mom's trust McCain" and then you go and post head banging music. There is a theme to this pudding.

This "red meat" thing needs to stop. I can see where this is going. There is pork barrel spending and McCain is not a chicken. Republicans have a long history of hating vegetables. Bush and his broccoli. But, maybe if they ate a little more fiber the Republicans wouldn't be so full of sh*t.

I think I have become a Vegetarian after listening to Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman last night. And, since when does being a P.O.W. make one qualified to be President?

Randal Graves said...

ME, what kind, though? Those pointy birthday ones, Viking hats, football helmets?

LBR, sure is, the world is a brutal place, so turn it up to 11. Except you, next door neighbor with your faux country music and Ford truck man junk car collection. And let me add that I love your last paragraph.

diva, I honestly forgot about their speeches. Half of me is glad I didn't because I would've thrown things at the teevee and the other half is mad because I could've thrown things at the teevee.

Because, he didn't fake his injuries like that candyass John Kerry.

I didn't watch the Lieberman or Thompson speeches. I probably would have tossed shit at the TV in the living room and broken it. Thank goodness for mid-week evening softball games. However, I think a more appropriate song for the McCain/Palin ticket is "Just One Look". I know. It's not a head banger, but it could be if you're at a bar getting drunk and a jukebox hog keeps playing it over and over... And, quite honestly, it appears to me that Johnny Mac (not the tennis Mac) is quite smitten with Mrs. Palin.

That little mopey fellow we kicked out of our party?

Good thing. He could really bring a room down.

Our Juicy Life said...

"When others wanted to retreat in defeat from the field of battle, when Barack Obama was voting to cut off funding for our troops on the battlefield," Lieberman said, "John McCain had the courage to stand against the tide of public opinion and support the surge (in Iraq), and because of that, today our troops are at last beginning to come home, not in failure but in honor."

Retreat in defeat? It's not defeat, it's smart...why were we there in the first place? Twisted stories, crap I say. McCain didn't have the courage, he's a nut for war, surge?

I think McCandy's theme song is "Fur Coat."

~I knew I was a redneck
~When I made my own furcoat
~The process was so easy
~I just had to kill enough goats
~My furcoat ain't too fancy
~But all my gal friends smile
~They say, 'there goes the town's first furcoat'
~Now it's almost winter
~And I am keeping warm

Randal Graves said...

spartacus, I'm definitely open for suggestions for other songs. I just like the rock and/or roll and well, when I think of old white Republicans, I can't help but think of rotting flesh.

And of course she is, she's real purty. Did you know that McCain was a POW?

dean, yeah, but he speaks from the heart, always has.

OJL, he was courageously maverick-y in supporting Iraq surges and courageously maverick-y in not supporting US intervention in Bosnia. Kerry is a lightweight. THIS is true flip-flopping, and thus, the very definition of courageous maverickness. And he was a POW.

christopher, please don't tell me that's a real song.

Mary Ellen said...

ME, what kind, though? Those pointy birthday ones, Viking hats, football helmets?

I don't know...White Sox baseball hats? Heh heh...

How about Pope hats? Yikes!

Übermilf said...

That rock and/or roll is much too loud for me.

Punk kids.

Randal Graves said...

ME, sure, I could always use something to scrub my toilet with.

Those pope hats are far too swanky for me.

übermilf, IF IT'S TOO LOUD YOU'RE TOO OLD. What?

Mauigirl said...

I'm afraid I AM too old. Music too loud. Words, however, were great. I love the way you take these lyrics and then link them to thought-provoking articles.

I didn't watch those speeches last night - I am with Spartacus, I'd have gotten too aggravated. It's like listening to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity.

Utah Savage said...

I watched it all. Now I have to clean up the blood on the floor. Christ what a fucking mess. And I just might swear off red meat for a couple of months at least. BTW--record a Leiberman speech, then any time you can't sleep you have the perfect soporific. Cheap and guaranteed to make you sleep, but will produce violent nightmares.

Randal Graves said...

mauigirl, thanks and the best part is that someone else did the heavy intellectual thinking. I just have to cut and paste.

The more I think about, the more I'm in your guys' camp. I don't need to pop a blood vessel.

utah, after that description, I'll stick with insomnia, thank you.

Beach Bum said...

Saw some clips of Lieberman's speech and every time I see him he gives me the impression of what the love child between Elmer Fudd and Jar Jar Binks would look like. I know, I watch far too much in the way of old Warner Brothers cartoons and Star Wars movies.

Border Explorer said...

S'pose McCain inspired this tune? Or did the tune inspire McCain?
Either way, you can pack a whole lot into a few words, Randal.

Randal Graves said...

BB, HA! Holy Joe certainly isn't an aesthetically pleasing human.

BE, well, McCain is older than the current position of the continents...

M.Yu said...

Ahhh such soothing sounds
carry profundities through the clear clean air.
I breathe deep and give a putrid belching salute to the King and Queen of Rotten
