The Lyrics

"Who ya gonna believe? Me or your own eyes?" --Warren T. Rat from An American Tail (1986).
Your lyin' eyes are foolin' you:
They tell you things I say ain't true.
Trust what I say, not what they do;
Your lyin' eyes are foolin' you!

They say my bailout is a crock;
My polls are dropping like a rock.
Job losses mount; bank failures, too;
Your lyin' eyes are foolin' you!

Your lyin' eyes don't believe me:
They say there's no recovery.
My schemes don't work--no, that's not true!
Your lyin' eyes are foolin' you!

Your eyes are playin' you a game:
They tell you I'm the one to blame.
Turn off your eyes, and your mind too;
Your lyin' eyes are foolin' you!
"Our own eyes!" --mob of mice Warren T. Rat was addressing.

Who are you going to believe? Yourself or the mainstream media? Good adaptation. Reminds me of the time I was with a group of friends. We heard some thunder and rain. We wanted to know what was happening. Did we look out the window? No, we turned on the TV.

Re: Introductory quote-- Delivered much earlier by Chico Marx (Chicolini) in "Duck Soup" (1933). The idea is nothing new, is it? Good pacing, and timely commentary on the power of media

Good commentary and parody.

Riiight, a conservative is calling a liberal a liar. Next, Limbaugh will talk about how Ted Kennedy is a fat substance abuser.
