If Rick Perry is going to broaden his appeal from white Southerners to suburbanites in the Northeast and West Coast, he needs a new campaign song. Here’s my suggestion. It’s popular yet still a bit alternative, and it certainly doesn’t sound like rap.
But the song itself is just the beginning. When Perry comes on stage to this accompaniment, he should pull out his laser-sighted pistol at the moment we hear “You better run, better run, outrun my gun”, and then when we hear “You better run, better run, faster than my bullet”, he should fire a couple of rounds in the air. This exercise of his second amendment rights would get him at least 15 points in the primary, and a minimum of 5 in the general, plus it would piss off liberals.
That’s my modest proposal, but I’m sure some of you have a better idea. Here’s an open thread.
