The Weekend America All Stars do Super Tuesday

"Super Tuesday," by the Weekend America All Stars

Super Tuesday is just two days from the Super Bowl
Some candidates will rock and others heads will roll
It's just a little contest that determines the fate of who will be competing to run the United States
On the left we got Obama versus the two Clintons
Gravel is still in it but there's no way he's winning
On the right you got Huckabee, Romney and McCain,
Ron Paul is still in it but his campaign's in vain

Twenty-two states will pick who runs this place
Forty-five percent of the delegates
It's just a little contest that determines the fate
of who will end up running the United States

The farmers in Illinois are turning corn into gold
While the state of Alaska is losing its cold
Georgia needs water like North Dakota needs people
Tennesseans going bankrupt because their economy's feeble

The hedge funders in Connecticut who eschewed regulation
Now look to the Fed to be their salvation
Alabama and Georgia are leaning towards Huckabee
But McCain's win in Arizona is a fait accompli

Twenty-two states will pick who runs this place
Forty-five percent of the delegates
It's just a little contest that determines the fate
of who will end up running the United States

On un-super-Wednesday when the dust has cleared
There might be two men/women standing and the end will be near
But on the off chance there's no clear victor then don't you cry
We'll just have to wait for Louisiana to decide

Or Washington or Maine, or Nebraska, don't forget the Virgin Islands, or Texas by the grace of God!

    Good story about hitchhiking online but unfortunately craigs list is a crap shoot. Much better is zimride.com which is the carpool application on facebook so you know if you're hopping in a car with someone from your college or friend group. Also lets you know how far out of the way your riders are and how much your carbon footprint is reduced. Better organized and safer than craig's list - just slightly fewer users so far so fewer matches but growing rapidly. Current TV did a great piece on zimride.
