If Rick Santorum Can Have One: A Playlist for My Upcoming Surge

Posted: Updated:

I feel pretty bad about myself today because if Rick Santorum can have a surge, anybody can get one -- right? Yet even after watching all 456 Republican debates in 2011, I've still got nothing to show for it according to the latest polls. Hell, my latest numbers are just as bad as Jon Huntsman's, and I'm not even Mormon -- although my wife saw the musical recently in New York and she loved it. On New Year's Eve, I briefly thought that I was experiencing a tiny surge, but it turned out to be a little gas. So please, think outside of the box, America, and rally behind me as your candidate of choice in the Iowa Caucus. Try your best to overlook the fact that I'm not a candidate, or a registered Republican, or in any way qualified other than being nearly as well briefed on pizza as Herman Cain. Then please do some surging of your own and add your own song for my campaign below. On behalf of the entire Committee To Elect David Wild President, thank you. Amy may God bless America, especially if I win.
