The Lyrics

Took George W. Bush exactly five and a half years into his ill-gotten Administration to issue his first veto. Was it to strike down one of the many ridiculous offerings by our Republican-dominated national legislature? Was it some ridiculous pork-barrel legislation drawn up by some hack Senator from some former (or, given time, would-be) Confederate State? Was it an infringement on our basic God-given freedoms? Guess again: It was a measure designed to improve the quality of millions of lives, not that Bush has ever given a damn about the quality, or sanctity, of any life, except his own.
The first veto
of his Presidency
was it to stop a bill that
would harm liberty?
In hall of Congress
they sent up a new bill
allowing stem cells to be used
to help those so ill.

Bush veto, Bush veto, Bush veto, veto.
Back to the Congress this bill must now go.

Victims of Parkinson's
and of disease Alzheim
will now not see this relief
due to moral crime.
This veto does protect
no lives held in bank.
All it does it just pander
to Bush's right flank.

Bush veto, Bush veto, Bush veto, veto.
Back to the Congress this bill must now go.

It's just a bill.
It's only a try
to ease some suffering.
Maybe some won't die.
Georgie Bush doesn't care.
This bill he does junk.
His religion and science
they both are such bunk.

Bush veto, Bush veto, Bush veto, veto.
One guess where Dubya in the end will go.
Now it's just a bill, yes, it's only a bill, and it's sitting there in Capitol's swill.

Let's remember that the veto doesn't make stem cell research illegal. It just denies it federal funds for ONE type of SCR. But then, I have to agree that he should have vetoed some spending bills and maybe one that infringes on our free speech (the one called "McCain-Feingold"). Of course, maybe if Soros and other rich lefties didn't spend millions of $ on trying to defeat Bush, they'd have some $ left over to fund the ESCR themselves.

The person above, Linda, is a patient who has escaped from a mental institution. If you see her, please contact the athorities immediately. She carries a gun and has been convicted of fraud and attempting to bomb women's clinics.

The blob of tissue referring to itself as "Amber Alert" is actually a doppelganger of Goebbels escaped from the labs of Planned Parenthood. It is known to contain the soul of Margaret Sanger, who has been convicted of genocide and crimes against God and man. If you see this unit, do not attempt conversation; contact an official from the Hades and Tartaros Joint Ministry of Eternal Incarceration and Punishment immediately.

I'm starting to feel like Tony Kornheiser on "Pardon the Interruption," except Linda is no Michael Wilbon. Linda... I WIN!!!! "Amber": The only bombs Linda has are her parodies. Other than that, though, you're pretty close to getting it right.
