    My General Election campaign song for any of them would have to be: Rage Against the Machine – Killin’ in the name of. A song designed to make you lower your head, stomp your boots and shout ‘ FU I won’t do what you tell me’, riling against the control of an unjust government…or they could just as easily shout that at us!!

      You burden me with your questions
      You’d have me tell no lies
      You’re always asking what it’s all about
      Now listen to my replies
      You say to me I don’t talk enough
      But when I do I’m a fool
      These times I’ve spent, I’ve realized
      I’m going to shoot through
      And leave you

      WINNER

      While there might well be “Clowns to the left of you, jokers to the right” that song is far too good for that bunch of poxbottles.

    My GE campaign’ish song for Frances Fitzgerald would have to be Pissing in the Wind by Badly Drawn Boy.

    A worm is on its hook, our love which dangles free

    In doubt your courage grows, with no guarantee

      Are you having an affair with her? Is your willy like a worm on a hook?
      This is all very confusing. Not to say disturbing.

    We get left with the frauds that are bono and geldof…. aysuz.. ffs.. is there anything left for the rest… you fucking pop legends….???

    Anyway, it’s what even the most useless, deranged and evil politicians really want to believe.

    At least I hope that’s true otherwise, killing them off one by one is going to be even a hell of a lot more difficult than I had planned… (THAT IS A JOKE YOU RETARD-True technical/scientific terminology)

      Maybe Fine Gael could spin Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” into part of a tried-and-trusted “Me Me Me” political campaign. Something in the lyrics about “keeping on with the Force” too.
