The Lyrics

The Republicans have taken over the Senate in the 2014 US Elections...which, coupled with a tight grip on the House means the GOP now controls Congress. And I'm expecting them to "lame duck" the POTUS until 2016. Here's what I imagine their victory song will be like. Share and Enjoy!
We own the House, Senate, all Cap'tol Hill
We are the large, in-charge, that's making you ill
And we feel alright, and we feel alright,
'Cause you'll soon be out, yeah, you'll soon be out.
We'll be gridlockin', like you had a doubt,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

We are the white, the male majority.
We are the right, conser-vative GOP.
And we feel alright, and we feel alright,
'Cause you'll soon be out, yeah, you'll soon be out.
We're ignoring you, and all of your clout,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

We got our mind made up, man, it's us who rule!
We're killing every bill you even think is cool.
(Ooh) We'll be running, (Ooh) we'll be running,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.
And we'll show you up, and we'll shut you down,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

There's a Socialist in the White House now
He's been there for six years and we still do not know how
But Reagan raised us good, Reagan trained us right.
Reagan said, "Do what you want, put up a fight!"
So against the Dems, we will scream and shout.
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

We got our mind made up, man, it's us who rule!
We're killing every bill you even think is cool.
(Ooh) We'll be running, (Ooh) we'll be running,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.
And we'll show you up, and we'll shut you down,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

Oh, we all want the same thing.
Oh, we want to rule all things
Get you out, us in
You lose, we win,
D.C. or Bust,
In Beck we trust!

We own this branch, there's no-thing you can do
And come twenty-sixteen, we're making it two!

We got our mind made up, man, it's us who rule!
We're killing every bill you even think is cool.
(Ooh) We'll be running, (Ooh) we'll be running,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.
And we'll show you up, and we'll shut you down,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.

We own the House, Senate, all Cap'tol Hill
We are the large, in-charge, that's making you ill
And we feel alright, and we feel alright,
'Cause you'll soon be out, yeah, you'll soon be out.
And we'll show you up, and we'll shut you down,
'Til your term runs out, 'til your term runs out.
'Til your te-e-e-e-e-erm runs o-o-o-o-o-out!

And the idiots have taken over the asylum. Get ready to roll back intelligence, science, and basically everything to 1953. Great parody, but very depressing.

Ted Cruz speaks of compromise? Bwahahahaha!!! Oh well, Obama has his veto ready! Repugnians will be exposed as the greatest obstructionists Congress has ever seen. Count on collapse by '16. Who do the Revoltians have for 2016 btw? A fat pig Christie, hispanic b*tch boy Rubio, yet another Bush, and nutcase Palin? The election's already won! Hillary for two terms!!!

You wouldn't be sock puppeting as a ultra-liberal, would you Ultra-liberal? Hard to to tell the difference anymore between even the most over-the-top sarcasm and actual leftist troll-think

"We are the white, the male majority." You mean such MANLY Reublicans as Joni Ernst, PASTY Republicans like Tim Scott, and MANLY PASTY Republicans like Mia Love? It's all about race and sex with you grievance-mongers, isn't it? If that's really your concern, you might want to do something about that massive monochrome sausage party you've got going on with those Democrats; just sayin'.

All of you one-bombers from the "Gang of Seven" really should have checked Chris Wolvie's body of work. Then you might have realized that CW might be engaging in sarcasm here, and that you have engaged in a bit of "friendly fire" ..... And,to Johnny Pyro: If Republicans are the party of idiots, what does that make the party that lost to them in a historic landslide -- geniuses?

Callmelennie, don't be hitting me with redneck logic. Historically, republicans do real well when there is a lower voter turnout. Mid term elections almost ALWAYS generate low voter turnout. I bet you're the type of person who goes outside on really cold days and exclaims "Where's the global warming now?" Read a little bit more will ya? Your ignorance is showing.
Well Said JP - November 07, 2014 - Report this comment
You hit the nail on the head with Callhimdummy. The guy has a history of racism and islamophobic hatred. As a right-wing extremist and reactionary the guy blatantly ignores the scientific community on global warming and the fact that Republicans can't win modern elections because they have lost all appeal to minorities, gays, seniors, and the working poor. They have no viable candidates for 2016. Their own party is fragmented with Tea Party insanity.

Y'know...I'm starting to consider NOT allowing comments if this is what it turns into. This IS satire, based on stereotypes given by liberal AND conservative media. This isn't a political, racial or gender-specific argument. This is just how *I* feel the GOP is (inwardly...and, in a few outlying cases, OUTwardly) to having finally recaptured Congress. It's just a parody...you should really just re-@#$%ing-lax!

Gee Wolvie, I'm the one who should be upset .. None of their hideous personal insults were directed at YOU. It was all at me. And seeing as they didn't appear on one of my threads, I could care less. In five days, they will disappear into the cyber ether, never to be seen again by human eyes .... Now, if you don't want these comments polluting your thread, Chris, just press "Report This Comment" and they'll be erased due to "Personal Attacks"

Well, I hate to sound like everyone's mother...but I don't CARE who started it because I'm FINISHING it! Comments should be about the PARODY, not POLITICS! So kindly cease and desist any further attacks or I *will* start reporting people. And I really DON'T wish to do that...
Michael Pacholek - November 10, 2014 - Report this comment
Yeah, well, if you sounded like MY mother, you'd sound like a socialist. And you'd have a lot more sense than you have now, and you'd have a lot more sense than the people who showed up to vote. But at least they showed up. The people who could have kicked the lunatics out of Congress and the Governorships didn't. I'll say this for Republicans: Unlike Democrats, they won't run away from a President of their own party, especially one who's done the great things that Obama has done. They've stuck with bad Presidents from Hoover to Nixon to Reagan to Dubya in spite of all the evidence against them. And if you report this... I don't care.

Wolvie, if you will notice, a couple of comments here have been reported (by me) and deleted. They were gross personal attacks on me and I really didn't want to hijack your thread responding to them, so I asked them to be deleted. And voila! .... You should ask for some of these other posts to be deleted, including mine. There's no reason your thread should be polluted with all these intemperate remarks (and I'm not talking bout yours, Mike) .. And I do believe the proprietors of this site are quite concerned about the negative tone these remarks create

Wolvie, everything you write is garbage anyway.
