Presented without knowing who made the video, of course.

I'd like to add my thanks for Bayh's decision since it'll more than likely cost us a Senate, House, and State House seat - throwing the entire state under Republican control. (For those who don't get the reference, Evan's father, Birch Bayh, was a famous Senate progressive who was friends with Teddy Kennedy and saved Teddy's life after the plane they were riding in crashed.)

Lyrics after the jump, but I think you know the tune.

A long, long time ago . . .
I can still remember
How those Dems used to make me smile
And I thought Indianas favorite son
Was tough enough to get it done
And maybe he could stand firm for a while.

But February made me shiver,
The news on every blog, plus twitter
Bad news on my laptop
Weve lost a key Dem backstop

I sat there and I rolled my eyes
When he said hed finally gotten wise
To the ways of Congress . . . .God, what lies!
The day that we got Bayhd.

So Bye, Bye, Mr. Evan Bayh
Youre such a loser of a Hoosier
That you wont even try.
Your daddy was a hero, youre just some douchey guy
Thanks to you, progressivism could die
Thanks to you, progressivism could die . . .

Didnt you want to be VP?
Like 3 different times? Cuz it seems to me
Maybe thats what this is all about . . .
Cuz youre so pissed at not being picked
You took your ball and went home, you dick!
Didnt daddy teach you not to po-ut?

Well Birch ran for prez, and he didnt win
But that was fine, it didnt affect him
He pushed the ERA
And wrote Title IX too, OK?

And in that lonely year, that gloom of night
When Reagan took the country to the right
Did Birch give up without a fight?
No! He lost, but he wouldnt have Bayhd.

So Bye, Bye, Mr. Evan Bayh
Youre such a loser of a Hoosier
That you wont even try.
Your daddy was a hero, youre just some sleazy guy
Thanks to you, progressivism could die
Thanks to you, progressivism could die . . .

Now for 12 years you have warmed your seat
And I guess you couldnt stand the heat
You say this aint how it used to be.
Well that may be true, you little wu-ssy.
Sure Congress sucks. But youre a pussy
Just like Senators Ben and Joe, you see.

And while you talk about how things arent great
The GOP is gonna take your state.
Think flag-burning shouldnt be allowed?
Oh wouldnt your daddy be proud?

And while youre off preening, unemployed,
And someone does what you avoid
And fights a real fight, well all feel annoyed
That thanks to you, we all got Bayhd.

So Bye, Bye, Mr. Evan Bayh
Youre such a loser of a Hoosier
That you wont even try.
Your daddy was a hero, youre just some sleazy guy
Thanks to you, progressivism could die
Thanks to you, progressivism could die . . .

As healthcare whithers on the vine,
What do you care? Just go on and whine.
But think a bit bout your old man . . .
His fellow progressives didnt fear strife
With what Teddy called the cause of his life
In the balance, they would shout, Yes We Can!

Birch dragged Teddy from a plane
When it crashed and burned, the liberal lion in pain
Birch Bayh saved the day
His son woulda run away!!!

And a campaign raged, and a movement grew
History called, change needed you.
But you wanted to be Hillarys number two.
And now weve all been Bayhd!

So Bye, Bye, Mr. Evan Bayh
Youre such a loser of a Hoosier
That you wont even try.
Your daddy was a hero, youre just some sleazy guy
Thanks to you, progressivism could die
Thanks to you, progressivism could die . . .

Progressivism won't die because Bayh retired, but i love "loser of a hoosier." so appropriate.
