I guess, with his name being Ed FitzGerald, they just couldn't help themselves.

I could picture an American political satire group, called "The Capitol Steps" (based in Washington, DC) doing a song parody similar to this on a multitude of topics. We've seen them many times, and they skewer everyone!

I'm sure if I was privy to the topical content this song covers, I'd have loved it. But as a mostly non-interested citizen of a Western State I could care less about Eddie Fitz and his political story. Gordon's original lyric, on the other hand, from the first time I really remember truly LISTENING to it back in around 1985, captivated me to no end.

I will say this was a pretty good musical cover of the song, but my cynical side has to wonder if the music came from one of the many Karaoke companies over the years.
