We Pick Rick

We Pick Rick


(A Santorum campaign song, sung to the tune of “I Like Ike,” by Irving Berlin)

We pick Rick.
Yes, Rick’s with whom we will stick.
He’s the guy
All over whom we’re swarming.

We pick Rick.
Though some imply that he’s thick,
He well knows
There is no global warming.

He’ll say on CNN
The sins that we must smother.
And he can keep those men
From marrying each other.

We pick Rick
‘Cause he’ll tell liberals real quick
What God says
No matter if they’re willing:
Abortion’s baby-killing.
So we pick Rick.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply-reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish everyday at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
