Rudie Can’t Fail
How you get a rude and a reckless?
Don’t you be so crude and a feckless
You been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can’t fail</em>
Rudie Can’t Fail, The Clash London Calling
A rudie, or rude boy, is defined in Jamaican/reggae culture thus:
RUDE BOY: a criminal, a hard hearted person, a tough guy
That pretty much sums up Mr. “Noun, Verb and 911” in a nutshell.
Thankfully, this Rudy did fail, ending one of the creepier presidential bids in our lifetime. Rarely has a man so unfit for public office attempted a run, and hopefully he’ll crawl back into the shadows, pimping himself out on speaking tours and sitting on a few boards, where he won’t be able to cause too many deaths.
Because if he had won, we’d be singing a different tune I suspect:
What are we gonna do now?
Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
‘Cause they’re working for the clampdown
They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!
When we’re working for the clampdown
We will teach our twisted speech
To the young believers
We will train our blue-eyed men
To be young believers</em>
