The Lyrics

I downloaded TOS to comment on the 44th US President's blaming of his predecessor, but the ethnically-insensitive title "Bush Do It" would yield to "Bush Did It." Then the current Cheney-Biden debate over national security and foreign policy supplied a worthier topic. As usual, I may have matched original phonemes too carefully, but they often suggest words and phrases I never could have imagined.
Kurds do it, Shi'as do it,
Even extant late VPs do it!
Vets do it; let's call O. "dove."

In radio, talk show hosts do it;
With what's plainly no regrets, do it.
Let's do it, let's call O. "dove."

El Rushbo's gold microphones cue it,
Brought invention to spin.
Yoked ditto-cams shew it:
Thinks with "I Am" he's twin. [1]

Some ardent Greens vent their spleens, spew it.
Students say if college tests their means, screw it.
Dems blew it, let's call off love. [2]

O. can't expunge Glenn Beck's crazed new wit.
Boist'rous clown Chicago's Way, slew it; [3]
Bets, due its debts, falls Big Gov.

Sean Hannity's greatest wish: do it;
Tease Emanuel "dead fish" through it, [4]
Sets to it; guests maul O-dove.

The Michael Steeles in Right ads do it,
Though twits mock them, I crow:
Sarah's no fad, rue it;
Palin brings in the dough! [5]

Tea-party goals swing the polls, brew it.
Bold wish is for primacy of souls, to wit: [6]
Let's stew it, let's stall Big Gov!

[1] "Talent on loan from God" actually applies to all of us mortals.
[2] Many who expected great favors from the "Yes, we can" man are frustrated.
[3] "I'm just a rodeo clown" is his trademark MSM putdown. "I found out, why can't they?"
[4] Claims that in a former role, Rahm mailed a dead fish to a political opponent.
[5] She reportedly donated a recent 0K speaking fee to the host Tea Party.
[6] The mortal souls that yearn for freedom, not the immortal spirits.

Difficult song to execute due to Cole Porter's clever and eccentric lyrics. Fortunately, B.J.M. is more than up to the job! Just do it (and keep doing it)! ;D

I apologize for not crediting Ella's Cole Porter Songbook. I'd change "Sets to it" to "Sets view it" (TV) and "in the dough" to "scads of dough" (scad means a fish or a large catch).

Oops! Footnote 5 should say $100K, not 0K. Thanks, O.M.R., I shall continue.
