(Karl Rove & Co. knock off Paul Simon’s “Slip Slidin’ Away”)

Still sliming away, still sliming away.
To get our guy elected, what we do is still sliming away.

First, John McCain, a prisoner of war.
Our callers said he didn’t have his marbles anymore.
They said that prison had turned him quite strange–
Not like our man, who used dad’s clout to stay safely home on the range.

Still sliming away, still sliming away.
To get our guy elected, what we do is still sliming away.

John Kerry faced Charlie–just luck he returned.
So we got vets to lie that his medals weren’t really earned.
They said that Kerry wasn’t wounded enough,
And the slacker who’d stayed home is the hombre who’s tough.

Still sliming away, still sliming away.
To get our guy elected, what we do is still sliming away.
