You Say You Want a Coronation? Campaign song for Hillary PAC

My apologies to John Lennon and Paul McCartney for lampooning the opening line to the Beatles’ 1968 classic song Revolution.

However, the question, “You say you want a coronation?” came to mind after I read a TIME article by Mark Halperin entitled, “Clinton Super PAC ‘Ready for Hillary’ Gets Readier.”  It reminded me of what I had railed about back in November in a piece called, Why Republicans Should Fear Ready for Hillary. But now, I would like to tack on Now More Than Ever to the end of the title.

The Halperin article piqued my curiosity about the newly revamped Ready for Hillary web site so I took a look at what will eventually morph into a national campaign with an estimated budget of $1.7 billion. (After all, $1 billion for a presidential campaign was so 2012.)

Ready for Hillary is an organizational and fundraising juggernaut with many media enhancements. Most visually enthralling is an Instagram gallery displaying a photographic review spanning decades. It even includes a wedding photo with “that Bill guy” she married.

Perhaps the gallery should be called “Ready for Life of Hillary,” or “Hair of Hillary” in a nod to her decades of ever-changing follicle configurations.

The site’s, Action Center chronicles how far Ready for Hillary has progressed. “We started one year ago with a P.O. Box and two volunteers and today we have more than two million supporters….”

Everything on Ready for Hillary is what you would expect to see on a major presidential campaign website except the small fact that Hillary is “not ready.”  (Which appears to be a non-issue)

Now let’s go back to the title question, “You say you want a coronation?”

After reviewing all the multimedia on the new improved Ready for Hillary site I noticed there was no campaign song.

So I have graciously re-written the lyrics to Revolution  from the Ready for Hillary point of view and hope not to be sued by the copyright holders, Sony/ATV Tunes or Paul McCartney.

You say you want a coronation
W’ell, you know
You all want me on the throne

The chicks say evolution
W’ell, you know
It’s time I rule the world

But when talk’in campaign destruction
I’ll win 270 and count them out

Don’t you know the GOP’s… far right… too white…. uptight

Barack beat me with no solutions
W’ ell you know
He didn’t even have a plan
Except wealth re-distribution
W’ ell, you know
I’ll win with that against Rand
What ‘bout cancer patients who have to wait
I’ll blame Obama who Bill still hates

Don’t you know GOP’s…..far right… too white….uptight

Barack must cancel the ‘16 election
W’ ell, you know
Campaigns cause me much pain
What about the constitution
W’ell you know
Old white men have lost their game
But Hitler reminds me of Putin now
And the media ‘bout had a cow

Don’t you know GOP’s… far right…too white… uptight

Far right, too white
Far right, uptight
Far right, too white
Uptight and TOO RIGHT
