CONSERVATIVE DREAMIN’

(sung to the Mamas & The Papas song “California Dreamin’”)

All their shirts are brown
(All their shirts are brown)
And their hair is grey
(And their hair is grey)
Listen to them talk
(Listen to them talk)
As they loudly pray
(As they loudly pray)
Scandal is their norm
(Scandal is their norm)
They have one every day
(They have one every day)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
And politics of hate

Members of John Birch
Some won’t admit they’re gay
But when they get down on their knees
(Get down on their knees)
That’s when they like to play
(When they like to play)
These slimy creatures should be told
(Creatures should be told)
Membership’s gone away
(Members gone away)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has led them all astray

(hypocrisy break)

Trump he was a clown
(Trump he was a clown)
Gingrich had his day
(Gingrich had his day)
Palin cannot talk
(Palin cannot talk)
She’s no Tina Fey
(She’s no Tina Fey)
Somebody should tell her
(Somebody should tell her)
To just go away
(To just go away)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has become so cliché
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has lost all its cache´
(Conservative dreamin’)
Drives voters all away

  1. What about the contradictory viewpoints held by Republicans?

    They believe in small gubmint and stratospheric levels of military spending. Free market solutions for healthcare and guaranteed profits for defense contractors. The Koch Brothers should enjoy the freedom to pollute and the government should legislate Christian-approved morality and fill up our jails with harmless stoners. Conservation of the environment? Not so much! They’re pro-life and pro-death penalty. They preach about the Constitution and rights and love it when the government infringes upon them in the name of security. Government is oppressive, nefarious, and untrustworthy and Republicans have a blind, fanatical support of the police, military, and other forms of gun-wielding authority.

    Republicans do have one thing in common- they’re all dour, humorless squares!

  2. Most of these are false. But, whatever you say.

    Also, healthcare should not be entitled. It isn’t a right of citizens of this country. Go ahead, check the Constitution. I’ll wait.

    • Article One, section Eight of the United States Constitution provides “the power to lay and collect taxes and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States…”. The word “welfare” is defined as “the good fortune, health, happiness, prosperity, etc., of a person, group, or organization; well-being. Hence Health Care is provided for in the US Constitution.

  3. Both sides are too influenced by, well, influence. The song WMD below makes the point that, as long as it is legal for special interests to heavily influence elections and policy, the government will be ineffective at representing the interests of its citizens. The key point of WMD is that it is a faulty system that makes the individuals (on both sides) ineffective, not the other way around. Key lyric: “most of them weren’t bad, they were just drawn that way”.
