"You Ran Bain...You Probably Ran It From the Olympics" (July 19, 2012)

This one is to the tune, of course, of Carly Simon's "You're So Vain."

The tax breaks, from your Party...are made for those who might own a yacht
You think strategically about your point of view...conviction is not your lot
You've got both eyes on the end game and...you can't afford a blot...
And Portman dreams that he may be your partner,
May be your partner and...


You ran Bain...you probably ran it from the Olympics
You ran Bain (ran Bain!)...you probably ran it from the Olympics
Didn't you?  Didn't you?


Well you released one year of tax returns...you thought that was all they'd need
And you parked your net worth in some Cayman banks...to try to hide all your greed
Well you're right on message all the time...and when you're not, you look...
Defensive...or maybe quite like Gordon Gekko,
Like Gordon Gekko and....


You ran Bain...you probably ran it from the Olympics
You ran Bain (ran Bain!)...you probably ran it from the Olympics
Didn't you?  Didn't you?


Well I hear you frolicked in Winnipesaukee...and Ann's horse naturally won
Then you flew your Cessna out to the Hamptons...and gosh you sure raised a ton
But you gave away your self-respect...all for this artless run...
And Portman dreams that he may be your partner,
May be your partner and...


You ran Bain...you probably ran it from the Olympics
You ran Bain (ran Bain!)...you probably ran it from the Olympics
Didn't you?  Didn't you?


Don't forget to vote in the Republican VP poll!
