A Song from John McCain For His Brother Joe

I’m sure many of you have heard about John McCain’s brother Joe’s verbal scuffle with a 9-1-1 operator while stuck in northern Virginia traffic. It got me to thinking about what song John McCain might be inspired to sing on the subject so I put together this little ditty.

To be sung to the tune of “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell, most famously performed by The Hollies.

The road is long with many a winding turn.
The taffic’s jammed up from here to who knows where.
But for Joe, this is an emergency.
He’s an asshole. He’s my brother.

See Joe is stuck in “commie Virginia“.
He’s got to get where folks cheer guns and prayer.
Joe McCain is a REAL American.
He’s an asshole. He’s my brother.

The cars won’t move, so Joe dials 9-1-1.
You think this is fair? Tell Joe. He don’t hear.
“Time is money and I’ve got special places to go.”
He’s an asshole. He’s my brother.

The operator asks Joe to get off the line.
“They’re people out there who really need care”
So Joe hangs up, but not without a rude “f&*k you.”
He’s an asshole. He’s my brother.

The race was long. I don’t stand a chance to win.
My brother the creep, just wants to bang my veep.
But the fruit don’t fall very far from the tree.
He’s an asshole. He’s just like me.

He’s an asshole. He’s my brother.

Respectfully (?),
Rutherford

  1. What, pray tell, is a 911 operator supposed to do about traffic, anyway? Have the police clear the rest of the cars out? Send a helicopter for him? Sigh …

  2. saintpaulgrrrl, thanks for the kind word. I realized several days after posting this that I had shown how old I am by using the tune of an almost 40 year old song. I can now see younger readers of this blog saying, “The Hollies? Huh?” 🙂

  3. I’m an old baby boomer of 53, Rutherford! The Hollies were on the Billboard Top 40 with that song when I was in 9th grade. It was, and still is, one of my favorite songs!
