Mark Begich Wins the Parody Game

Conservative activists have composed a spiteful ditty imploring Alaskan voters to give freshman Sen. Mark Begich the heave-ho this fall.

As for as parodies go, the song is just OK. (Not sure even Weird Al could’ve spun gold out of the dour source material.)

They teach how to trade the futures and for me the futures is much better than the Forex I’ve been making money trading the futures whereas with the Forex all I did was lose my money and that’s the truth!
