POLITICS: It's The John Kerry Song!

Having a little fun here - it's time for a John Kerry theme song. This one is to the tune of the classic 70s hit "Rubberband Man" by the Spinners (Click here and scroll down for a sample of the tune). I'll leave to someone with more musical talent the task of putting this to sounds and images:

The Other Hand Man

Hand me down my chardonnay,
Hand me down my brie,
Hurry now and don't be late
He’ll be on the slopes by three
You and me were goin' out
To catch the latest sound
Guranteed to blow your mind
So high you won't come down


Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Other Hand man
You never heard a sound
Like the Other Hand man
You're bound to lose control
When he starts to say, "on the Other Hand,"

Oh, Lord, this dude is outta sight
Everything he says
Comes out both left and right

Once I went to hear him speak
On a Sunday talk showdown
I was so surprised, I was hypnotized
By how this cat flip-flops around

When I saw this long-faced guy
Stretch a sound bite ‘till it broke
Hey, I laughed so hard
As he got bogged down
Steerin’ clear of yes or no

Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Other Hand man
You never heard a sound
Like the Other Hand man
You're bound to lose control
When he starts to say "on the Other Hand,"

Got that Other Hand
All ready to go
And then he wriggled his way
Around yes or no

(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Guaranteed to blow your mind
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Back and forth flip floppin’ all the time
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Does he really think we’re stupid, oh, Lord
(Doo doo doo doo doo)
Lord, make him go away

Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Other Hand man
You never heard a sound
Like the Other Hand man
You're bound to lose control
When he starts to say "on the Other Hand,"

Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Other Hand man, Other Hand man
How much of this stuff do he think we can stand
So much nuance, fluff and evasion from one man, Lord
And then he had nerve to wiggle his war vote
To "yes, but," got it all straight in his head, y'all
Ah, come on, Kerry

Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Other Hand man
You never heard a sound
Like the Other Hand man
You're bound to lose control
When he starts to say "on the Other Hand,"

Other Hand man starts to jam
Flip-floppin’ his way across the land
Got answers goin’ every way
Everything about him seems out of place

Always wafflin', always wafflin'
Always waff-waff-wafflin'
Just a Other Hand, Other Hand man
Always wafflin', always wafflin'
Always waff-waff-wafflin'
Just a Other Hand
Other Hand man
Go ‘way
Oh, go ‘way Johnny
Uh-huh
