The Lyrics

I'm the Anti-Chris Matthews, who on MSNBC said that during the SOTU speech he forgot that BHO is (half) black. I parodied the pop song rather than the Broadway song.
I've grown accustomed to his race;
He has no make-up laid on skin.
I've grown to trust but verify [1]
His missile's flight on high,
His wiles, his sounds,
His pups, his hounds. [2]

His second nature is to bow
To ev'ry lout below his chin.
I was naively Independent and content before '08;
Purely am conservative today, hope not too late.
I've grown a pustule from his looks, [3]
Distrustful of his voice,
Disgusted with his base. [4]

He's very stately, he's a showman
(Though behind his ears still wet),
Rather like a rabbit pops by magic from a hat.
I've grown accustomed to his pace
Of changing our health care,
Accustomed to this race. [5]

[1] A double-entendre here, said by Ronald Reagan during the Cold War.
[2] Advisers, Czars and Cabinet members.
[3] His gaze, not his appearance.
[4] Dedicated followers, who sing the remaining lines.
[5] His whole legislative agenda.

What if Bill O'Reilly had used those exact same words? I guess that if you are a flaming liberal then there is no such thing as a racial slur. ;D

Barry, you've done it again -- a home run, right out of the park. When I watched the SOTU, I was QUITE aware of his race -- his race to destroy the country.

I saw that clip of Matthews on the Daily Show - Jon Stewart's comment was that Matthews forgot one thing he said this - that he was miked. Good topical parody

I may have grown accustomed to his race, but I'm not sure about his SOTU speech! Didn't mean to sound negative about BHO. Great work and 5's!

Thanks to all above. I'm sorry I had to change a few rhymes from OS. Lines 3 & 4 could be "I've grown to thrustingly lampoon, Dismiss him in cartoon."
@ DM: U R right about 2 meanings of "race", as in my top & bottom lines.
