Turner Wins Special Election
In New York District there was a changing of the guard
As the Republicans won in the Democrat's backyard
The seat who lost to Weiner who was kind of a prick
And had to resign when he made his wife heartsick
But the Democrats surely expected to win
But Obama's foreign policy the Republicans did spin
And the Dems candidate ran a terrible campaign
So another vote in the House they did obtain
And Obama now has lots to fear in 2012
As his presidency voters seem to want to shelve
Republican Bob Turner won the special election for Anthony Weiner's vacated House seat. Turner used Obama's problem connecting with Israel to appeal to the large Orthodox Jewish population in the district. Many across the country see this as a dangerous sign for Democrats as they prepare for the election next year.
