The Lyrics

It's been a while since I sent anything in. But it's time to shake things up again.
Ground control to Speaker John
Ground control to Speaker John
Take a flying leap
and stop putting us on

Ground control to Speaker John
You tried a shutdown
That was wrong.

Gave us sequester
and God's wrath is with you

This is ground control to Speaker John
Your face, it should be red
But it's orange, and you have no jobs to spare
'cause you're obsessed to repeal Obamacare

This is Speaker John to ground control
Repeal Obamacare
And I govern in a most peculiar way
And the President looks different today

Here am I
sitting on my fat can
on Capitol Hill
Once-red States are blue
and there's nothing I can do

Though I've passed repeal thirty-six times
I must be trying still
And I think my caucus knows which way to go

Tell my wife I love her very much
(Which one?)

Ground control to Speaker John
You've gone brain-dead
There's something wrong
Can you hear me Speaker John?
Can you hear me Speaker John?
Can you hear me Speaker John?

Here am I
sitting on my fat can
Dressed for Meet the Press
Once-red States are blue
and there's nothing I can do

Funny and well aimed political spoofing

Wondering where you have been. The sequester is a chance to see which government programs anyone actually misses. Keep the sequestered stuff, repeal everything else. That should get business flowing again. The secret of the prosperity of the Clinton years was that Hillary's health care takeover was thwarted by Rush Limbaugh. Obama rammed his plan through, wonder what threats he made against Judge Roberts, and now investment and job creation have come to a total standstill.

No, there was no secret of the prosperity of the Clinton Years. Everyone knows the reason Clinton gave us the best economy ever: He raised taxes on the rich. Job creation has NOT come to a standstill, it's been happening since the fall of '09 when Obama's first budget took effect. Look, if you're going to be a right-winger, I can't stop you. But if you're going to lie, I'm going to call you out.
