Official 2010 Dem campaign song: ‘IT WASN'T ME!’

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Notice how Dems are running away from Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al? Reid's son, Rory, a Dem candidate for Governor of Nevada, not only won't mention his party, but has forgotten his last name was "Reid," at least in his ads.

After checking the Dem disaster predictions in the polls, leftist political hacks are backing off Obamacare, making all sorts of claims as to their original support. Where one heard crickets before, now one heeds the desperate pleas of Dem candidates professing the benefits of extending the Bush tax cuts, even to the evil rich!

Rumor has it the DNC has sent the plots below to the flailing Progressive candidates to use to "reeducate" the electorate.

Plan A: The Jackie Mason ploy.

  • The dog ate my Obamacare Bill.

  • Global Warming made me schvitz. I couldn't see the vote buttons.

  • Cap and trade? They told me I could trade my vote for a Mets hat.

  • I got two to one it would pass.

  • I was verklempt. My grandmother died- TWICE.

  • I was promised a personal stimulus from a Clinton intern.

  • Obama made my leg tingle.

  • Pelosi threatened to Botox me.

  • I thought "Card Check" was what you did when someone yelled, " BINGO!"

  • I was bought off with the now vacant house next door to the Palins.

Plan B: The Shaggy Strategy.

From Clinton 's "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" by Fleetwood Mac to FDR's "Happy Days are Here Again," J. Yellen & M. Ager to Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land," for Reagan and George H. W. Bush, campaign songs have been a staple of politics. This year is no different.

As usual the tunes stay the same while the words change to fit the situation. Here's this year's Democratic Campaign song and lyrics.

It Wasn't Me by Shaggy

Voters caught me red-handed (It wasn't me)
Creeping with the Socialists. (It wasn't me)
Found selling out, CSPANed (It wasn't me)
Now they think we're bulging cists. (It wasn't me)

How'd the voters get familia
With your Marxist militia?
Now the peeps they wanna kill ya
Bring the mom from Wasilla.

How could I forget Obama lied?
What delusion was I under?
I say it wasn't verified
It was all a big blunder

I voted trade for car wrecks (It wasn't me)
Said I backed cap and trade. (It wasn't me)
Spoke out for Card Checks. (It wasn't me)
Said I loved ACORN aid (It wasn't me)

You gotta be a playa
To survive as a pol.
You better learn to saya
No harm no foul.

They saw me Global Warming (It wasn't me)
Try to kill big oil (It wasn't me)
Ignore the Mexies swarming (It wasn't me)
Arizona is a boil. (It wasn't me)

Want the power in DC! (It wasn't me)
Better look to UN (It wasn't me)
We can lose our sovereignty (It wasn't me)
Dollar ain't worth a yen (It wasn't me)

How'd the voters get familia
With your Marxist militia?
Now the peeps they wanna kill ya
Bring the mom from Wasilla.

Play this song over and over ad infinitum while praying voters won't believe their lyin' eyes and ears.

How do you know a politician is in a snowball fight? He's the one throwing curveballs.

Here's how the average voter can avoid the camouflage flack attack. Check out who voted for Obamacare, the stimulus bill, cap and trade, who backs suing Arizona , who backs Obama's Middle East policies, who backs amnesty, who calls Tea Partiers racists, who backs the Middle Finger Mosque.

Then vote accordingly.

Next week, Republican campaign song: " Yesterday" by the Beatles.

Can't wait for the Jib Jab parodies.
