The Non-Voters Support Me

Obama’s presser today reminds me of this Usenet classic:

To the tune of “My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean”.

The lurkers support me in email

They all think I’m great don’t you know.

You posters just don’t understand me

But soon you will reap what you sow.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see

off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see.

Oh it’s true, and you know they support me.

There’s thousands of lurkers out there!

They all understand my intentions

you posters are not being fair!

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see

off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see

The lurkers support me in email

“So why don’t they post?” you all cry

They’re scared of your hostile intentions

they’re not as courageous as I.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see

off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see

One day I’ll round up all my lurkers

we’ll have a newsgroup of our own

without all this flak from you morons

my lurkers will post round my throne.

Lurkers, lurkers, lurkers support me, you’ll see, you’ll see

off in e-mail the lurkers support me, you’ll see.

Good times, good times.

    There was one of those Equivalence posts on a thread on this subject over at Hot Air. The Equivalence goes something like this.

    You Repubs/Righties/Objectivists were so vocal back in 2008 about how you were going to defy the political tide, but now that the Dem/Lefties are doing the defiance thang, you are all bothered by it?

    But we are talking about the President of the United States. Does anyone remember an in-office President personally and without surrogates or “cut-outs” taking these positions?
