The Lyrics

An infamous post-election interview, in which MSNBC staffers were laughing off-camera while Chris Matthews mockingly asked Michele Bachmann whether she had been hypnotized, inspired me to parody TOS. I heard later that of 129 candidates sponsored by the Tea Party, only 16 definitely lost; those are the ones the MSM mentions. Here I mention 7 winners, one in doubt and one loser, about the right ratio.
They all laughed at blissed-out Michele Bachmann [1]
When she said she'd won this round;
They all laughed, then NBC was sordid found.
They all laughed at Rand Paul [2] and his father, [3]
When they said the Fed should die.
They told Marco Ruby [4]
That he was a boob; he
Shouldn't aim so high.

They laughed at Tea Parties' few,
Said we were screeching like the loon.
But oh, our game grew;
Now they'll hope to change their tune.

They all said, forever we'd be sappy;
They laughed, said we would cow.
But ho, ho, ho!
Who's got the massed laugh now?

They all laughed when Joseph Miller [5] entered;
Now they count votes written in.
They all laughed at Toomey [6], said he oughtn't win.
They all laughed at Johnson in Wisconsin, [7]
Haley [8] but she crossed the bar.
Christine [9] seemed so dizzy,
Kept the laughers busy;
That's how pundits are.

They laughed, D.C. flaunting Blue,
Said it would be, "Fellows, good try."
But O's Blue's lame, through;
Now they bleat and grumble, "Why?"

They all said we'd never get together.
Party, let's take a bow.
For ho, ho, ho!
Whose not the last gaffe?
Tea Party,
Let's have a blast, laugh.
Ha, ha, ha!
Who's got the last laugh now?

After [9], I'd relectantly change "seemed so" to "was" for perfect pacing.
