The Ballad of Karen Hughes
(Sung to the tune of "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" from The Beverly Hillbillies)
Guest song parody by Darrell Decker

(instrumental intro)

Let me tell you all a story 'bout a gal named Hughes,
She wasn't much to look at, but was always in the news,
She helped a bunch of crooks and a moron get elected,
But when she got to D.C., she got disrespected.

Job over... Get lost... It's a man's job...

Well, the first thing you know, Karen Hughes had lost her place.
Shrub had just been using her to try and win his race.
When he gained the Oval Office, didn't need her anymore.
So he sent her back to Texas, like a cheap two-bit whore.

Useless woman... too much power... dangerous, you know.

(instrumental break)

The spin from the Republicans is probably a lie.
Hughes still will be campaigning for the Moron on the sly.
If she screws up, Republicans can pull their specialty:
They'll throw her to the wolves, a sacrifice for royalty.

Campaign manager... now a scapegoat... y'all don't come back, now.
