Buchanan hints he's leaving.
The GOP says, "Stay!"
They fear that he'd be draining
The wacko vote away.

To win they're going mainstream.
The big tent's been OK'd.
They speak of other issues,
Forgetting Roe v. Wade.

But folks who hate what's foreign
And like their neighbors white
Are vital to the party
In any race that's tight.

And therefore all the leaders
Say, "Pat, let's not lose touch.
We want you in the party,
Just please don't say too much."
