The Lyrics

Organizing For Action (O.F.A.), the renamed Obama campaign team previously known as Organizing For America, has pulled a doozey this time. This new group, which contains almost all of the Obama campaign staff, has offered any individual or organization which contributes $500,000 a special membership. The reward will be face-to-face meetings with President Obama at least four times every year. Additionally, since O.F.A. has tax-exempt 501(c)(4) status, contributors will not have to disclose the amounts of their donations and their names will remain confidential. Such public advocacy groups as Common Cause are enraged, and even such reliable flacks as M.S.N.B.C.'s Chuck Todd have said "This looks bad" and "this is ceding the moral high ground". This does seem like rich filthy Republicans or filthy rich Republicans (of which I am neither due to financial, ethical, and hygiene restraints). ;D


If you want to see the Prez, here's what O.F.A. now says:
You'll get access if you pay five-hundred grand.
Five-hundred grand - here in our hand - is how we've planned - to rule this land.
Face time with the Prez? Donate five-hundred grand!

O.F.A. pays no tax, five-oh-one-c-four to max.
We won't tell your gift amount or give your name.
You will be here - with naught to fear - and you'll be near - Obama's ear.
You may cringe but now it's how we play the game.

A price ten times enlarged as the fee the Clintons charged(1)
For a chance to spend the night in Lincoln's bed.
Join our troop - to recoup. Sep'rate group? That's just poop.
It's the way today that voters must be led.

Still this time the loyal press can't ignore this awful mess
When the O.F.A. pimps for five-hundred grand.



(1) - President and Mrs. Clinton offered a night's stay in the Lincoln Bedroom for a five figure contribution. I guess the dollar just doesn't go as far as it used to go. ;D

They're all whores, to state the obvious.

OMR, When I saw the title and the name of the OS, I thought this was a completely different song. If it is OK with you I'd like to write the song I thought it was, using the same title.

Why can't the government just run its corrupt little game on contributions and leave the rest of us out of it?
