The Lyrics

As some in Congress try to break the Administration's obfuscation of the 9/11/12 Benghazi attack, nominations to head the State Department and CIA hang in the balance. Find the original lyrics here.
Al-Qaeda wakes, removes
Our Consulate and proves
They won't quit. Who's called for Sunday's screens? [1]
Barack and Hillary?
No, neither face I see.
Divert -- Don't "spill the beans"!

They send out twice then thrice
Ambass'dor Susan Rice, [2]
A member who is fighting UN's 'preens'.
Where the bores are slippery,
She's got to master quippery.
What does she do? She tends to routines. [3]

Now Rights will fight [4]
Until they've shed some light.
She's got to be protected, [5]
Women's rights respected;
Hillary would like to be elected. [6]

Members of Press Corps
All rate Dave 'hot' in war;
They'd rather 'kill' Petraeus peacefully.
Top's fall is their obsession;
His fate's their digression.
Rights only want the world to know
What government [7] won't dare to show:
That Sue's purported cause is Oh-
so-much in doubt. Soon we may see!

[1] Five September 16 TV interviews
[2] She said a YouTube video mocking Islam sparked riots in Benghazi.
[3] Compare her to, say, former UN Ambassador John Bolton.
[4] Benghazi hearings in House committees but not in the Senate
[5] Barack defended Susan in his November 14 press conference.
[6] President in 2016
[7] I.e., the Administration, claiming that killing ObL ended terrorism. I transposed this line with the line above it in the original lyrics.
