The Lyrics


Guys pulled it in Florida. . .guess the gal used steely head.
Call this a debate?! Faces, but one: white bread.
One sister midst the fellas, crazy eyes burnin’ red.
They grinned, gripped then wiped their hands, as if of disease dread.

What a load of horseshit, what a load to see,
What a load of bullshit: blah-blah-blah.
Call this farce debate? Not really.

I sicked up, post-gag, and went lookin’ for a place to hide,
But I kept barfin’; the spectacle was hard to abide:
All they said: carpin’ and puttin' Perry down;
Though he’s a grotesque schmoe, nonetheless he stood his ground.

What a load of bullshit, what a load to see,
What a load of horseshit: blah-blah-blah.
Call this farce debate? Te-he-he!

Go-round, smoke blowin'; they had nothin' to say,
So more I puked and puked; ’batin’ is sure what did they—
But don’t pretend to that word goes prefix “de-”
But rather what Onan done. . .a “mastur-” plan in that etymology

What a load of bullshit, verbal Onan spree,
What a load of horseshit: blah-blah-blah.
Call this farce debate? Wankery.

Waste-time jesters callin’ each other names much worse than “dog,”
Each named the others “rank”. . .a jackoff spate of log-
orrhea, most of it senseless, a piece of crap is each “plan.”
It just serves to annoy. . .makes me want to seek CSPAN.

What a load of horseshit, verbal Onan spree,
What a load of bullshit: blah-blah-blah.
Call this farce debate? ’ shittin’ me?!

Then said madman Paul: “You got no insurance? Fine.
Should anyone help you? No! It is gonna be your time.”
“Just let ’m die?” was the question from Wolf man. Not mum,
Ron, who said, “No.” But the Party cheered: “Yes! F**k ’em!!”

Once feared of “death panels” was the Party Tea,
But now, it’s the panel. (“Die! Die!! Die!!”),
Al, who’s on the “Show,” quipped rightly.*


*Al Madrigal, on “The Daily Show”: “The party that started out fearing death panels has become one!”

JAB - I disagree, but this certainly is no Field Of Dreams. One consistency: I always admire your skill and talent. ;D

Many thanks, OMR. I don't always agree with you. Major difference: you use a scalpel, I a machete.

I agree that the debate wasn't much of a debate (there wasn't a lot of difference between them in my opinion, other than one of them being a woman--which shouldn't and doesn't matter). . . One thing I will say is this parody didn't go into very many specifics telling what you obviously saw based on your opinion (as I stated I agree with it not really being a debate) .. . though I do like that you mention the hypocrisy of Ron Paul being against mandated insurance and more or less letting people die that can't afford it, then saying more or less that's not what he meant. . . .and his suggestion that the churches would take care of it is ludicrous at best. .on a whole churches are struggling to survive because of a lag in attendance and, therefore, giving. What about when the churches can't afford it? I also find it funny that he said he has to make his own decision. . .the hypothetical question was about a man in a coma--he can't make decisions at all. . .and the Tea Party spectators yelling "yeah" did make me a bit sick to my stomach (as I'm sure is why you felt the way you did to), God forbid they ever struggle financially and can't afford their own insurance. . .the hate of the Tea Party is just gross, absolutely disgusting. . . I'm glad not all the Republicans are pandering to them, but at any rate. . .the next election is scary, I don't care for any of the Republican candidates so far, and well. . .Obama himself is very hit or miss, I don't know that I'm comfortable there either--not sure what I'm going to do with my vote at this points--14 months to decide

Scalpel? Machete? Gibbs Rule Number 9: Never go anywhere without a knife. Except to a gunfight. Unless you're V.
