Another older post....
I'd nominate you for president,
If there was any way I could-
But I'm afraid that the way you speak your mind,
Might be misunderstood-
You're gutsy and opinionated,
You're blustery and you're loud-
You're patriotic and principled,
You're articulate and you're proud-
The words you speak are right on point,
They'd appeal to many a crowd-
But you damn well, politicians would say,
"Those expressions are not allowed-"
Now, I hope this move enables you,
To say what you want with ease-
And never have to worry 'bout,
Those ones you might not please-
Oh, California, it's hard to let go,
Of a man who thinks like he-
But Idaho is a much safer state,
For a conservative man to be!
