"Go home to Vermont now"
Hopefully, by now, you've heard about Howard Dean's "foot in mouth" incident regarding the South. And if you haven't, you'll hear it as soon as the primary trail takes him to South Carolina. Mike Morely, a regular commenter over at Brothers Judd, has come up with a marvelous little ditty that sound like it captures the feelings of the Southland fairly well... to the tune of Sweet Home Alabama:
Howard Dean out campaignin'
Criticizing my kin
Talkin' trash about the Southland
Put down Alabamy once again
And I think its a sin, yeah

Well I heard Democrats talk about us
Well, I heard ole Dean-o put us down
Well, I hope Howard Dean will remember
A Southern man don't want him around anyhow

Go home to Vermont now
A state the map colors blue
Go home to Vermont now
'Cause we ain't votin' for you
Mike should seriously sell the rights to this satire to the highest bidder out of the other eight candidates. It could well be Dean's undoing--how can you fight something that catchy?
Agree, disagree, have more information on the topic? Please, feel free to leave a comment. No profanity!
