Buzz Ballad: Empty Chair

---apologies to Hoagy Carmichael and "Rockin' Chair"

Ol' empty chair's got me---it injures my pride

Can't run on my record of failures I can't hide.

National debt's climbin' to the stratosphere

And at the top of it, there sits an empty chair.

Oh, my GM bailout, and my cash to cronies

Stimulated nothing but a torrent of bankruptcy

It's a dismal record; Election day is near

And I'm just an empty chair...
