According to Joe
Long live John McCain
To the nomination McCain will assent
But that doesn't make Huckabee irrelevant.
The radical right McCain must keep
So his clear choice is Huckabee as veep.
The issue of mortality is then very weighty
Because to serve two terms, McCain must make 80.
McCain dying in office would be a catastrophe.
We'd then have as president, Reverend Huckabee.
Not the Constitution but the Bible, that's Huckabee.
He'd move our country toward a theocracy.
Separation of church and state we must save
Else Tom Jefferson will turn over in his grave.
