If somebody committed a crime, they will no longer work for my Administration.
   –George W. Bush

Ann Richards wasn’t hard to beat–
Not once we said she seemed to greet
A lot of girls who looked quite burly
And, all and all, just not too girly.

We smear, we smear. We slime, we slime.
It’s fine if it is not a crime.

McCain, a hero, led the pack,
Until our whispered sneak attack
Said, “Hero, sure, but he was changed
By prison. John is quite deranged.”

We smear, we smear. We slime, we slime.
It’s fine if it is not a crime.

Though our guy’d hidden in the Guard,
John Kerry, hero, soon was tarred
By Swift-boat proxies who’d exact
A fearful price without one fact.

We smear, we smear. We slime, we slime.
It’s fine if it is not a crime.

Joe Wilson’s op-ed piece implied
When we lacked facts we simply lied.
We showed our toughness in this strife:
When he struck us, we smeared his wife.

We smear, we smear. We slime, we slime.
It’s fine if it is not a crime.
