Jimmy Fallon Channels James Taylor: “I’ve seen Romney, I’ve seen Bain.”

Jimmy Fallon Channels James Taylor: "I've seen Romney, I've seen Bain."

James Taylor wrote some enduring lines with:

     I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain.

     I’ve seen sunny days I thought would never end

But there’s always room for tweaking, especially during political campaign season. Catch Jimmy Fallon’s own instant-classic update set at the Democratic National Convention, as he channels Taylor (who really did perform there, during a non-peak time) singing:

    I’ve seen Romney, I’ve seen Bain

    I’ve seen Clinton speeches I thought would never end.

    I’ve seen crazy guys talking to invisible men

    So I’ll prob’ly vote Obama again.  

Best endorsement ever! Keep listening to hear who’s on Fallon-as-Taylor’s dream ticket for 2016.

The political satire out of both Republican and Democratic conventions was surprisingly tame, even stale, especially from The Daily Show. Too bad last night’s Saturday Night Live, with Fallon as host, was a repeat. But  new episodes of SNL begin this coming Saturday, Sept. 15th (Seth McFarlane hosts), so, you might say, there’s hope.
