    The Wreck of The Hillary Clinton

    I don't know how many people have seen this but thought I'd post it after running across it this afternoon. The Wreck of The Hillary Clinton is a parody of Gordon Lightfoot's The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It's pretty funny but it would be a lot better if the guy could actually sing.

    Since this seems to be parody thread I thought I'd post a couple more.

    This one, by Ray Stevens, is titled Obama Budget Plan. As usual Ray Stevens is pretty funny.

    The premise of this song is false . It implies the Democrats think people shouldn't work and should only rely on the government for everything . It's a dumb, dumb, stupid, ridiculous and asinine song .

    you're a brilliant man with a keen intellect, which makes me wonder if you're posting in the wrong thread

    here's the lyrics:
    The legend lives on from old Brooklyn on down
    Of the wreck of the Hillary Clinton
    The White House was hers, they had told her, for sure
    There’s no way that the orange man will get in

    With a loada donor cash many million dollars more
    Than Don Trump’s enterprise had control of
    The Clinton campaign was to suffer much pain
    When the votes of November changed motives

    Her crew was the pride of the liberal side
    Coming out from the Democrat contest
    As candidates go, she was way worse than most
    But she had on her side media broadcasts

    Concluding that she couldn’t win on herself
    She set out to tear down the Donald
    Little did she know he would go on to show
    He was more like the one they called Ronald

    When fall came around their campaigns hit the ground
    Both of them had their share of misfortune
    Hillary fell and Donald couldn’t tell
    Whether he should even try to win

    The debates were all tests of president-ness
    And most said that Hillary won them
    For in all three affairs Donald dwelt on his cares
    Plus he did have to deal with some nose phlegm

    When October came, the surprises were out
    And boy were they hard on the Trump team
    A “pussy” remark gave his party a rout
    His campaign almost lost all of its steam

    But Donald held on and refused to be gone
    Though many protested against him
    The rest of the fall he doubled down on the gall
    That had earned him his primary big win

    Does anyone know where the love of God goes
    When elections turn minutes to hours?
    The pundits had said Comey’s letter was dead
    But the night defied their guessing powers

    At first it had seemed that they’d all shout “YAAS QUEEN”
    When the exit polls presaged her victory
    Yet the Donald came through where the Great Lakes are blue
    In the states where the weather is wintry

    The pundits were told that the Blue Wall would hold
    No way the Great Lakes could become red
    But the night would go on to prove them all wrong
    On Penn, Michigan, and Wisconsin

    As farther below, the swing states would go
    The Great Lakes had pushed Trump to conquest
    They voted for him even though he had been
    Rated by most as dishonest

    In a swanky new pad in Brooklyn they cried
    For the doom of the Democrat Party
    On Twitter they wailed for their efforts had failed
    Though they thought that their base had been hearty

    The legend lives on from old Brooklyn on down
    Of the wreck of the Hillary Clinton
    Elections, they learned, must be actually earned
    Lest the votes of November go Trumpin.’
    i don't see anything in those lyrics that "... implies the Democrats think people shouldn't work and should only rely on the government for everything"

    but you are a brilliant man with a keen intellect, so perhaps it's just too deep for me

    Sure it is, but some are pretty keen to avoid all of that and act rather weird instead for some reason...
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    I agree. I don't see anything about the Dems thinking anything about government reliance. Rather it looks and sounds more like a redneck rally-cry for the Trumpster...though, akin to the popular voting majority, I'm a intelligent poster with a keen intellect...perhaps I just don't get it.

    Hmmm.... I actually expected a whole lot more from you, Arthur, in the way of intellectual honesty. Horn? Not so much. I've read too many of his posts to be surprised by anything he says. To say that The Wreck of Hillary Clinton is about anything other than her loss of the 2016 presidential election takes a mindset that doesn't care a whit about what was actually said in the lyrics.

    Based on my experience with horn in the past, he never got past reading the thread title

    I presumed The Horn was referring to a subsequent video, not the OP although in regards to that it was a pretty crap video in all honesty and as regards to the "singing" and lyrics...

    Frankly, America was short changed in 2016 with the choice of viable candidates but it happens over here as well, such is the nature of the political machine. A choice between the tangerine twit currently in the WH or a has been who would have been equally uninterested about people but rather the power and prestige of the position.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    maybe he was talking about the ray stevens bit:

    Well I told my wife we had to get control of the finances in our
    household. We had to sit down
    and make a budget we

    could live by. I said we'll list
    Our incomes and all our bills
    So get the bills Honey if you will
    And she got 'em and stacked them
    On the table three piles high
    Now I work two jobs and the wife cleans homes
    and her daughter baby sits and her son mows lawns
    But that budget wouldn't balance
    no matter how we tried.
    So I said let's do what the government does
    It works for them it might
    Work for us so I forgot my index
    And morals and
    Swallowed my pride
    We took out every credit card
    We could get and loaded
    Them up with the maximum
    Debt and borrowed from
    Friends and family and even
    Took out loans over seas
    I borrowed at work had
    Credit at the store till folks just wouldn't give
    Us credit anymore. And I said
    Honey the next step is
    Clear to me
    Now we got money
    Obama money
    Yeah we printing it in the basement
    Just as fast as we can
    We're making money
    Obama money yeah we're
    Livin' the Obama budget plan
    Well we didn't use the money
    To reduce our debt
    There was a whole bunch of
    Things we still wanted to get
    Now that we had more money
    Than ever before
    So we built a deck and a patio
    Put in a pool bought
    A second home and took
    All our friends on vacation
    The cost of Dale's soul
    Cause we got money
    Obama money yeah we're
    Printing it in the basement
    Just as fast as we can
    We're making money
    Obama money. Yeah we're
    Livin' the Obama budget plan
    Budget sealing credit scoring
    Don't worry about that I'll just
    Print more of that money
    Obama money yeah hey Honey
    Make a run to office depot
    I need more paper and hurry back
    I got to pick up my new
    Cadillac this afternoon
    And I'm printing you up
    A little surprise birthday serious
    Package too ha ha boy
    I sure hope them spoil sports
    Republicans and tea party
    Folks don't screw this up
    Once you renounce any
    Sense of decency it gets
    Easier and easier
    You know I think I'll just
    Buy boardwalk and park place
    Hey I wonder how much
    They want for that general
    Motors company there ha ha


    but i still don't see the implication that "the Democrats think people shouldn't work and should only rely on the government for everything "

    The "tangerine twit" who has been successful in dealing with the economy, the Syrians, the north koreans?

    you're a brilliant man with a keen intellect, arthur, so I wonder how you reconcile the above statement and the fact that trump has done more for working class poor blacks and hispanics in two years than obama did in eight?
