Worst. President. Ever.

A playlist for the prezidunt of amurica, with love:

The Kinks: "A Well Respected Man"
"He's a well-respected man about town, doing the best things so conservatively...."

Village People: "Macho Man" -
Revel in the chorus and imagine Mr. Deluded Decider singing it about himself.

Faster Pussycat: "You're So Vain" -
An obscure L.A. hair band covers Carly's tribute (in title, if not verse) to asshole macho-man vigilantes like Mr. SmokemOut.

Denis Leary: "Asshole" -
"He's the world's biggest asshole...."

Nazareth: "Vigilante Man" -
Woody Guthrie updated by a screaming Scotsman. "Tell me, why does that vigilante man carry that sawed-off shotgun in his hand?"

Green Day: "American Idiot" -
Need they say more?

Queen: "Death on Two Legs" -
"Killjoy, bad guy, big-talking small fry...."

Barenaked Ladies: "Fun & Games" -
War and carnage as a happy circus tune... much as Mr. Nookleer Monkey sees it.

Tool: "Swamp Song" -
"The bog is deep and easy to get lost in, 'cause you're a stupid belligerent fucker...."

Nickelback: "Side of a Bullet" -
"And in the wake of his mistake so many lives are broken...."

Metallica: "King Nothing" -
"Then it all crashes down, and you lose your crown, and you point your finger, but there's no one around...."

The Dreaming: "Dead to Me" -
"You're nothing, you're no one, you're dead to me...." A party anthem for when the Long National Nightmare is finally over!
