GOP presidential campaign theme songs?

Every presidential candidate needs a theme song. And after watching (clips from) the Republican presidential debates and reading up on the GOP frontrunners in the news, I would like to suggest the following.

For Mitt Romney, I propose "Stuck in the Middle with You" from Stealers Wheel:

[For those unfamiliar with "Stuck in the Middle with You," here is a link to the lyrics.]

For Texas Governor Rick Perry, I suggest the Britney Spears' classic "Oops! ...I Did It Again."

Oh Perry, Perry.

For the godfather of pizza, Herman Cain, I'm thinking the Atlanta Rhythm Section's "So into You":

And for Michele Bachmann (is she still even in the race?), "Crazy":

Well, those are my GOP presidential candidate theme songs suggestions. What are yours? Let me know via the Comments section.

"You're So Vain" by Carly Simon for the Newtster. Also, The Who's "Substitute" would work for Romney.

Mitt Romney should be "Did you ever have to make up your mind." or Katie Perry's "hot and cold"

Perry's should now be "Don't know much about history.."

Bachman-"Pretty Woman" or Pistol Packi'n Momma but those could be Palin.

I love seeing pre-MTV videos. Steelers Wheel has a nice Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers devil-may-care attitude (probably because they hail from across the drink). Funny post.

@Betty + @Anonymous: BRILLIANT! Wish I had thought of those.

Patsy Cline deserves so much better than to be associated with Bachmann. Just sayin'.

@Dave S., yeah yeah yeah. Would you have preferred "You Might Think" from the Cars? (Btw, next time don't go all GOP on me and piss on my idea without coming up with one of your own. ;-)
