The Hillary Shimmy, which the Democratic nominee performed after a particularly aggressive and long-winded attack on her at the first debate, has its own song, further ensuring its place in the annals of viral campaign moments.
It’s a feel-good moment in a campaign season that has had so few of them.
The song was written by Jonathan Mann, who writes a song a day:
“My superpower is that I can take any idea, no matter how complex, and distill it down into a short, catchy, memorable song.”
And the lyrics, via DailyKos:
This dude is coming at meI just smile and let him beThe dude brought your own ropeHe put the bullet in the gun soI’m just gonna shimmyShimmy Shimmy Shimmy ShimmyHRCShimmy Shimmy Shimmy ShimmyHillaryHe just keeps on shouting, “Wrong!”So I’ll get my Jim Halpert onHe is a flightless birdI think I’ll never say another wordI’ll just be singing this song
