DUmmie FUnnies Writer First to Coin 'Magical Misery Tour'

So who was the first to coin Barack Obama's "non-campaign" campaign bus tour as "Magical Misery Tour?" Was it Mitt Romney or Rush Limbaugh?

Answer: Neither. The first person known to have so coined the bus tour was my DUmmie FUnnies co-author  Charles Henrickson as you can see documented in his August 9 Free Republic post:#57 (same number as the number of states in the Obama States of America).  Charles also posted a DUmmie FUnnies edition on August 14 by that same name which included a parody song about the "Magical Misery Tour" sung to the tune of Magical Mystery Tour:

 

Barack, Barack and the Magical Misery Tour! Step right this way!

Barack, Barack and his Misery Tour
Barack, Barack and his Misery Tour

Barack, rolling across the nation
Barack and his Misery Tour
Barack, but this is no vacation
Barack and his Misery Tour

 


The Magical Misery Tour is wanting to make you all pay
Wanting to make you all pay

Barack, Barack and his Misery Tour
Barack, Barack and his Misery Tour

Barack, he's got everything you need
Barack and his Misery Tour
Barack, even though it's all wee-weed
Barack and his Misery Tour

The Magical Misery Tour is hoping to make you all pay
Hoping to make you all pay

The misery trip . . .

The Magical Misery Tour
Barack, Barack and his Misery Tour

Barack, rolling across the nation
Barack and his Misery Tour
Barack, but this is no vacation
Barack and his Misery Tour

The Magical Misery Tour is coming to make you all pay
Coming to make you all pay

The Magical Misery Tour is trying to make you all pay
Trying to make you all pay, take it away . . .

Henrickson is the author of dozens of parody songs including one for which he rarely got credit, The Palm Beach Pokey which was widely played on radio stations during the infamous Florida election recount in 2000. Let us take a trip down memory lane with that song:

 

You put your stylus in,
You put your stylus out,
You put your stylus in,
And you punch Buchanan out.
You do the Palm Beach Pokey
And you turn the count around,
That's what it's all about!

You put the Gore votes in,
You put the Bush votes out,
You put the Gore votes in,
And you do another count.
You do the Palm Beach Pokey
And you turn the count around,
That's what it's all about!

You bring your lawyers in,
You drag the whole thing out,
You bring your lawyers in,
And you put it all in doubt.
You do the Palm Beach Pokey
And you turn the count around,
That's what it's all about!

You let your doctors spin,
You let the pundits spout,
You let your doctors spin,
And your people whine and pout.
You do the Palm Beach Pokey
And you turn the count around,
That's what it's all about!

You do the Palm Beach Pokey,
You do the Palm Beach Pokey,
You do the Palm Beach Pokey,
That's what it's all about! 

So remember, radio stations, if you play "Magical Misery Tour" on the air, please be sure to do what you neglected to do in 2000...give credit to the song's author, Charles Henrickson.
