Evangelical Girl

(Sung to the tune of Tom Petty's "American Girl")

Well she's an Evangelical girl
Raised in Waterloo
She couldn't stop talkin' 'bout
The fact that John Wayne (Gacy) was born there too

After all it is a great big world
With lots of people to lie to
Yeah, and if she had to keep lyin', she
Was gonna go for the top and not the V.P.

Bachmann, so uptight
She's a flake, baby
Chris Wallace was right
She's an Evangelical girl

The lies she tells are out of sight
Like she denies getting farm subsidies
But she could hear the Tea Party cry
At the DC rallies, and they needed a leading queen

And with Palin imploding
She just co-opted the new party
God it's so painful, the sound of that crazy voice
She's still so far out of touch

Bachmann, please don't lie
John Quincy Adams
Was not a founding guy
But she's an Evangelical girl

I just want to point out that "American Girl" is the song Catherine Martin is listening to, in "Silence of the Lambs", right before Buffalo Bill gets her. Considering Bachmann used the song to announce her candidacy as she accidentally celebrated John Wayne Gacy is just funny as hell.

Wow!Good catch Jenn!Lol.I think she concluded that in the movie "Amistad" John Quincy Adams played by Anthony Hopkins who of course played Hannibal Lechter in "Silence Of The Lambs"(oh the irony!)defended the slaves who commandeered the ship trying to gain their freedom,that he must've been a founding father.Like Herman Cain,she must hate reading.
