The Lyrics

As Democrat polls fall and hopes for changing medical insurance or energy production and use fade, the US capital is in turmoil. Even with media support, bills are postponed and cannibalized behind closed doors as the Administration tries to demonize and silence dissenting voices. So I had to release early this familiar Christmas carol, the fourth in a series.
O's bitter down in Washington; now will he cease to lie?
In love with preachy seamless speech, the strident czars go shy.
Yet as free markets find deathly clever blasts pin Right,
The hopes and fears of next eight years are setting me affright.

For vice is born of avarice and gathered in big gov.
While voters sleep, the changes creep, press watchdogs stunned in love.
The fawning shows together declaim the health-care dearth,
While christening Obama king, who fleeces men of worth.

How soylent pea-green silently the welfare gift is given.
Obama parts with human heart, confesses naught to heaven.
So clearly fear his coming, much to this world's chagrin. #
Where weak folks will receive their fill, illegals enter in.

O, those beguiled by Washington descend in polls today;
Cash out, deal in, use center spin; they've torn the USA.
We hear the Fox News channel their great bad hidings tell:
O, come to us, deride with us sour Rahm Emanuel.
* DC, not the first US president; but he does frown on, and blame, another George W. # eventually

Wonderful use of language. Fits the subdued tone of the original quite well. "Fleeces men of worth" can be interpreted several ways. A great line. And, of course, ending with Rahm Emanuel. Inspired. I'll have to go back and look at your other Christmas parodies.

Thanks, Patrick, hope you like other three, more to come. Copy & paste http://www.carols.org.uk/o_little_town_of_bethlehem.htm for this OS. You can substitute "leap" for "creep" in line 6, "pow'r" for "deal" and "we mourn" for "they've torn" in line 14. By "illegals" in line 12 I include those unqualified who game the system for benefits.

Christmas? I think it plays rather well for Halloween too. Good write.

Have you not been paying attention? The public option is going to pass. You can't stop it. The President is beloved, and the haters have been exposed as the lying bigots that they are. I still wish Obama had looked at Joe "Ah luvs me some Confederate flag" Wilson and, remembering that he's half-black, yelled back, "Read the bill, fool!"

Yes, BJ21, it's frightful. MP, to paraphrase an old wise saying, "A bill on the desk is worth six in the Congress."
