"If I get stoned I'm just carrying on an old family tradition"


If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, what exactly do we call the horrific self-parody on example yesterday as Hank Williams Jr. butchered one of his better songs, the pro-drug, anti-Nashville "Family Tradition," by refashioning it into the moronic "McCain-Palin Tradition"? Here are a few snippets from my own transcription:

John and Sarah tell you just what they think
They're not gonna blink
And they don't have radical friends to whom their careers are linked


Sarah, why do you hunt?
John, why do you fish?
How can you be so smart and savvy and such a "hey good lookin'" dish?

That's a reference to Gov. Palin, by the way, not the Maverick. Hardly an improvement on this bit from the original:

Hank, why do you drink?
Hank, why do you roll smokes?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?

Here's the video from yesterday's rally at the Richmond International Raceway:
