The Lyrics

To go down to D.C. we’ve no yen
We think that it’s obvious why
The poison partisanship
Will cause the nation to die
You get a whiff of a strong pong
If a trip you’re making
Down to that pestilential place
The thought has us quaking

To go down to D.C. we’ve no yen
It’s a place the sane can’t abide
Those in that camp should Bronx Cheer all
On the aisle, either side
There all you find is a windy bray
And the bullshit flying
In a flung way, it’s a brown plume
Their crap we ain’t buying

To go down to D.C. we’ve no yen
Where idiocy is rife
It’s on display each and every day
With their mindless squabbling strife
They’re doing the country lots of harm
Their terms never will be over
They’ve a gerrymandered wet dream
And Menckenesque voters
From the great H.L. Mencken:
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.


Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

If a politician found he had cannibals among his constituents, he would promise them missionaries for dinner.

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.

It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office.

Sorry and shocked that there is gridlock in the federal government. This is news to me. Thanks for the heads-up. 5s.
