Burlington, VT — Bernie Sanders has been campaigning hard against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. After several months of trial and error, Sanders’ campaign has finally picked its official campaign song. Campaign songs have become popular in recent elections, most notably “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow” by Fleetwood Mac for Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign. Campaigns try to choose a song that is catchy and that captures the spirit of their campaign message.
Gish Gallop caught up to Patricia Skeritt, a spokesperson for Bernie Sanders campaign at a campaign stop in New York. Ms. Skeritt broke the news about the official campaign song.
“I’m pleased to announce that Senator Sanders has decided that ‘I’m Afraid of Americans’ by David Bowie will be our campaign song going forward.”
We asked why this particular song and Ms. Skeritt interjected, “[i]t sums up our campaign perfectly. We are afraid of the gun-toting-meat-eating Americans. We all are. They want to take away everything. They would take away our rights to safe speech zones and participation trophies.”

“I mean, just look at those lyrics,” continued Ms. Skeritt. “Who wouldn’t be terrified by that?”
The song barely edged out “Taxman” by the Beatles.
Gish Gallop has learned that the Clinton campaign is trying to make a tough choice between two songs: “Been Caught Stealing” by Jane’s Addiction and “20th Century Man” by The Kinks.
