The Lyrics

Arnold Schwarzenegger, a slapstick entertainer masquerading as gov of CA, just wasted 50 million taxpayer dollars on a "special election," a blatantly transparent power grab. Voters terminated the four "initiatives" (propositions 74-77) he had put on the ballot.
Arnold's rank power grab got beat--
The voters wisely said, "No!"
His bogus BS ballot bombed--sweet;
It's now time for him to go.

What a waste of precious resources,
"Special election". . .brought him a defeat.
And all his special-interest forces,
His "initiatives" suite.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
Governor's con bites the dust.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
The voters showed their disgust.

That's 74 gone, just one of his four cons,
Another one bites the dust.
75 got it too,
Another one bites the dust.

Next, I hope the voters say, "Get along!
It's time for you to be gone.
We realize that we've been had
By an actor whose cover's been blown.

We weren't happy; we weren't satisfied,
Although at first we did eat
Up your promises--just pure bullshit
So now, here's a taste of defeat.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
Another one bites the dust.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
Another one bites the dust.

There's 76 gone, 77 gone,
The other two bite the dust.
We've had enough of you--
The voters showed their disgust.

This is really gonna hurt the girlie man;
It might even bring him down.
Voters beat him,
Might defeat him,
And sweep him right out office
In next round.

Fifty million dollars right down the loo,
Wasted on your power-grab suite.
The curtain from your charade was ripped,
Your suite defeat was sweet and meet.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
All four of 'em bit the dust.

Dumped, dumped, dumped,
The power-grab plan went bust.

There's 74 gone and 75 gone,
The voters showed their disgust,
Yeah, 76 is gone; 77 bit dust.

Poorly paced, only slightly funny. Unfortunately true (that Arnie's a con man). I almost feel sorry for the state of Cali-fornia.

Schwarzenegger perceived the California legislative process as broken and offered these initiatives to help fix the system. Warren Beatty and others replied that the system was democracy, which meant that it somehow couldn't be broken. In a state with a huge budget deficit, companies leaving the state because of an anti-business environment, and high school students who can't read, I think the system is broken. Unfortunately, we have a blue state, and the majority of voters disagreed with Arnold and me.

*shrugs* The system is broken because it's California. Texas is just as bad, but in different ways. It seems like dysfunctionality is the curse of the largest states. Granted, my state (NC) is pretty damn dysfunctional too.
