The Lyrics

This is part of Matthias's Halloween Carols community project. Forget that show on FX; this is a real American Horror Story.
US voting for a redneck Congress
Dow Jones dropping to zeroooo
House of Reeeps... being run byyyy liars
The Senate run byyyy rich asshooooles

Everybody knoooows…. The turnout was a little looooow
B’rack and Boehner gonna fiiiight
Hope it taught, *snicker*, the Paaaarty of Noooo
You’ll find it hard to sleep…. toniiiight

We know that Foooox Neeeews had them swaaaaayed
The voting lacked in kids, Latinos, blacks, and gays
And every mother's chiliid is gonna cryyyy
To see if Repubs… really know not to liiiieeee

And so Iiiiii'm offeriiiing… this simple naaaaame
From eighteen years to ninety-twooooo
Although it's been saaaaid many times, many daaays,
Hil’ry Clintoooon, Siiixteeeen

(Obama and Boehner fight during interlude)

Aaaand so Iiiiii'm offeriiiing… this simple naaaaame
From eighteen years to ninety-twooooo
Although it's been saaaaid many times, many daaays,
Hil’ryyyyy Clintoooon
Siiiiiiiix… teeeeeeeeen

Where are "'kids' (presumably 18-20 year olds), Latinos, Blacks, and Gays" denied the right to vote? Are they required to vote Democrat? Who made that rule? How do we know that some of these people didn't contribute to the Republican victory? Since Tommy Turtle isn't around anymore, I'd like to point out that "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire" is 9 syllables, while "US voting for a redneck Congress" is not only 10 syllables, but an example of judging someone, not by the content of their character, but by the color of the skin between their chin and their shoulder blades. As for Hiiiiillaaaary Clintooooon (rhymes with "cartoooooon"?), the Republicans are going to be hard pressed to find a candidate to lose to her in 2016. But, I expect them to make a sincere effort.

Saira Blair, Susana Martinez, Mia Love, Tim Scott, and Carl DeMaio weren't allowed to vote? The Dow Jones is plunging? Where are you living, a Harry Turtledove novel in which Stephen Douglas won the election of 1860?

Instead of creating laughter, this motley crew of idlers and haters argue stupidly about party politics. They don’t understand that they have a common enemy. Hear the wise men:

“These capitalists generally act harmoniously, and in concert, to fleece the people, and now, that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel.”

-- Abraham Lincoln, arguing against an Illinois State Bank bailout, Jan. 11, 1837

“We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its end. It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. . . . It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless.”

-- Abraham Lincoln, from a letter to (Col.) William F. Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864

"There's not a dime's worth of difference between the Republicans and Democrats."

-- George Wallace

"But he has nothing on!" they all cried at last. Emperor Hussein writhed, for he knew it was true, but he thought "The procession must continue now." So he held himself up stiffer and straighter than ever and continued parading down Pennsylvania Avenue with Harry and Nancy holding up the invisible trains of his non-existent robes.
