Every Politician needs an anthem. I think this one might work well for Mitt Romney. I have a great deal of respect for Carly Simon. So I hope that no-one takes umbrage at my minor tweaks to one of her hits…….

You walked into the GOP, like you were walking onto a yacht
Your wallet strategically dipped below one tax bracket
Your briefs they were really hot.
You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself garrote
And all the banks dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and…

You’re so Bain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so Bain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You?

You had my money several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well, you said that you and money made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave me up in the air
But you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me
I had some dreams, there were jobs in my area
Jobs in my area, and…

You’re so Bain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so Bain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You? Don’t You?

I had some dreams they were supplies at my Staples
Supplies at my staples, and…

You’re so Bain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so Bain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You?

Well I hear you went up to Fox TV and your taxes naturally won
Then you flew your lear jet up to Freeport Illinois
To see jobs go to china
Well you’re where you should be all the time
And when you’re not you’re with
Some Fox TV reporter or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and…

You’re so Bain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so Bain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you

Don’t you? Don’t You? Don’t you?
