Meme for Maverick

To the tune of the Theme from Maverick (TV Series -- Thanks to Television Tunes for the mp3) Maverick Theme sound file

Who is that bumblin' old man there?
"Maverick" is his claim.
It's all made up from thin air,
Lies are his companions,
Media is to blame.
They always give him a free pass,
"Maverick" is their frame.
They all line up to kiss his ass,
Givin' up their ethics,
Addin' to his fame.

McCain thinks war is swell,
He'll march us straight to hell.
Cash from the lobbies, what he likes to find.
Baghdad to old Tehran,
He wants to drop The Bomb.
John McCain is a legend in his mind,
John McCain is a legend in his mind.
