Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 93

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS:  Massachusetts voters actually like candidates with Ivy League connections. The most  poll from the Western New England University Polling Institute reveals that only 13 percent of Massachusetts are “less likely” to vote for Democratic US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren because she teaches at Harvard Law School. Conversely, 21 percent said that fact makes them more likely to vote for Warren while 63 percent said it makes no difference at all. Something tells me the result would have been different in Texas.

THIS JUST IN:  Have you noticed that the Republican Presidential candidates (especially Michele Bachmann) have stopped talking about the price of gas? The reason for their sudden silence might have something to do with the fact that gas prices have been falling since may to about $ 3.40 as of October 5th. There goes one more GOP talking point out the window.

BREAKING NEWS:  It was nice to see that Democrat Earl Ray Tomblin beat his Republican opponent in West Virginia’s special gubernatorial election last week. Congratulations Earl!

THIS JUST IN:  Did you realize that the War in Afghanistan had its 10th anniversary on October 7th? Viet Nam anyone?

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Sane Judicial Decisions Which Are Certain To Be Overturned By The US Supreme Court” features the US Appeals Court for the District of Columbia which upheld as constitutional, a D.C. law which bans semi-automatic rifles and large capacity ammunition magazines.

THIS JUST IN:  Herman Cain must not want to be President of the United States. If he did, he would never have said the following to the over 14 million presently unemployed American voters, “If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself.” Something tells me that those words are going to come to roost at Cain campaign headquarters.

BREAKING NEWS:  It looks like GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry may also have to deal with some chickens coming home to roost. Texas pastor, Robert Jeffress introduced Perry at a conference of Christian conservatives last week and then stated that Mitt Romney is not a Christian and that the Mormon Church is a cult. I wonder if Jeffress feels the same about Jon Huntsman? Perry now has his own Reverend Wright.

THIS JUST IN:  The economic geniuses over at Fox News have repeatedly criticized the Democrats’ attempts to raise taxes on millionaires as “class warfare” while touting Herman Cain‘s 9-9-9 plan which would raise taxes on the poor and middle class as sound economic policy. Hmm?

BREAKING NEWS:  Crazy headline of the week: “Tea Party Nation Urges Monday Night Football Boycott, Backs Hank Williams For Senate“.

THIS JUST IN:  Ever wonder what happened to the “Birthers” who believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States? Did you think that they walked away with their tails between their collective legs when Obama’s long form birth certificate was produced and authenticated? Nope. They did however take another slap to the face from the US Supreme court last Monday when nation’s highest court refused to take up a case brought by three people “who claim President Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States of America and, hence, is ineligible to be the President.” Will these people ever learn? Don’t count on it.

BREAKING NEWS: It would appear that Massachusetts’ Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Warren is siding with the 99%. In a debate last week she unapologetically said, “The people on Wall Street broke this country, and they did it one lousy mortgage at a time. This happened more than three years ago, and there still has been no basic accountability, and there has been no real effort to fix it. This isn’t about class warfare, this is about the reality of how we prosper as a nation.” Brava, Ms. Warren! She unabashedly speaks truth to power.

THIS JUST IN:  My favorite quote from Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last week was in reference to Sarah Palin‘s announcement that she would not seek the Presidency. Stewart’s quote? “Take The Money And Don’t Run”. Brilliant.

Take The Money And Run song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-vBd-r_Pww

TAKE THE MONEY AND  RUN

(sung to the Steve Miller song “Take The Money And Run”)

This here’s a story ‘bout Sarah P. or “Caribou”
As for nicknames, ya know, she’s got quite a few
There’s “Failin’ Palin” and the “Pig with Lipstick” too
And here’s what happened up north when she was cut loose

She was the Guv, but spent no time in Juneau
One mean bitch with the temperament of Cujo
She double-crossed just about anyone you know
Sarah P. took the money and run

Sarah took the money and run
Sarah took the money and run
Sarah took the money and run
Sarah took the money and run

Sarah P. said she would not accept federal money
She said Obama was up to something funny
She told the Senate to hop away like a bunny
The legislature said, “Thanks But No Thanks” honey

Sarah P. was pissed she didn’t get her way
To Indiana she went, the very next day
The House and Senate, hey
Took the funds anyway
Sarah P. was forced to  declare the “Big OK”
Singin’ OK let’s take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
OK, take the money and run
(Haroooga!)
OK, take the money and run

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 91

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS:  Guess what happened last week? The infamous Ground Zero Mosque (which is not at Ground Zero and is not a mosque) opened and nothing happened. Absolutely nothing happened. This is exactly what sane people were saying for the last year or more. This makes you wonder what all the fuss was about.

THIS JUST IN:  During last Thursday’s Fox News sponsored Republican debate, Rick Perry was asked what his first move would be if Pakistan had lost control of its nuclear weapons to the Taliban. Perry responded with this:

“Well, obviously before you ever get to that point, you have to build a relationship in that region. That’s one of the things that this administration has not done. Just yesterday, we found out through Admiral Mullen that Haqqani has been involved with, and that’s a terrorist group, directly associated with the Pakistani country. To have a relationship with India, to make sure that India knows that they are an ally of the United States. For instance, when we had the opportunity to sell India the upgraded F-16s, we chose not to do that. We did the same thing with Taiwan. The point is, our allies need to understand clearly that we are their friends, we will be standing by there with them. Today, we don’t have those allies in that region that can assist us if that situation that you talked about were to become a reality.”

Is it just me, or did Mr. “Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme” make absolutely no sense?

BREAKING NEWS:  On the other side of the spectrum, Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren had this to say about business owners who decry the government for impeding their ability to conduct business and make profits:

“I hear all this, oh this is class warfare, no! There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.  You built a factory out there — good for you. But I want to be clear.  You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.  You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.  You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory… Now look.  You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea — God Bless! Keep a Big Hunk of it.  But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

Looks like the nude boy-toy Teapublican Scott Brown has some very real competition coming his way.

THIS JUST IN:  The best quote of the week was delivered by President Barack Obama in the Rose Garden when he unveiled his $3 trillion long-term deficit reduction plan which includes raising taxes and closing loopholes on the wealthiest Americans. He said, “This is not class warfare – it’s math.”

BREAKING NEWS:  Cartoon of the week from CrooksandLiars.com:

THIS JUST IN:  Idle threat of the week: Fox News host Bill O’Reilly threatened to quit working if his “rich-guy” taxes are raised. Really? Sounds like all the more reason for increasing taxes on the rich (oops, I mean job creators).

BREAKING NEWS:  As long as we are on the subject of Fox News, here is a little tidbit that involves hosts Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity. Back in July, the former ex-quitting half-term governor of Alaska told Hannity that her decision whether or not to run for President would be made in August or September. Of course August is now long past and September is waning and Palin has still not made any announcement. She appeared on Hannity’s program again this week, and rather than press Palin on her self-imposed timetable for a decision, Hannity instead asked her whether November was the month by which she would need to make a decision. Palins response? “Legally you do because you have to start getting your ducks lined up to have your name on these ballots.” How much longer will Palin’s charade continue? It will continue as long as she can continue to make a buck by prolonging her announcement not to run.

Saturday In The Park song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwryFOYTKac

HANNITY IN THE DARK

(sung to the Chicago song “Saturday In The Park”)

Hannity in the dark
You’d think that he would open his eyes
Hannity in the dark
It’s rhetoric that the reich wing buys
Keeps us barfing, keeps us laughing
The man is a lame-brain
G.O.P. talking points
Ixnay on the truthiness
Do you dig it? (no, we don’t)
And he’s been at it such a long time
Sean Hannity

Hannity in the dark
You’d think that he would open his eyes
Hannity in the dark
It’s rhetoric that the reich wing buys
His tough talking, while he’s smiling
Scared of waterboarding
Chicken-hawk with gall
Olbermann exposed the fool
Can you dig it? (yes, we can)
And Alan Colmes was such a nice guy
Yesterday

Slow thinking dropout without a college degree
A bought man just can shill for the G.O.P.
Fox News execs know they’re his boss
Know they’re his boss (oh, yeah, yeah)

In a daze, in the dark
Every day’s a day full of lies
In a haze, off the mark
He’s just like Limbaugh in disguise
Embellishing and misleading
An abomination
Like the Berlin Wall
An idiot, pitching a fit
Can you dig it? (no, we can’t)
And he’s been at it such a long time
Hannity

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 90

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: If you would like to boycott some products who’s profits fund the Koch Bros’ radical conservative right-wing agenda, The Nation has done some research for you. Here they are: Quilted Northern and Angel Soft toilet paper (seems appropriate doesn’t it?); Brawny and Sparkle paper towels (known to clean up those ugly Koch Bros’ messes); Mardi Gras napkins (good for wiping your mouth after spitting vile lies); Vanity Fair disposable plates (for those who do not like to clean up their own messes) and Dixie Cups (for drinking Conservative Kool Aid).

THIS JUST IN:  Truthout.com reminds us exactly what we will lose if the Tea Party ever gains power:

  • Social Security and Medicare
  • Medicaid, SCHIP, and other health care programs
  • All federal education programs
  • All federal antipoverty programs
  • Federal disaster relief
  • Federal food safety inspections and other food safety programs
  • Child labor laws, the minimum wage, overtime, and other labor protections
  • Federal civil rights laws

BREAKING NEWS:  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) warned last Monday that any stimulus spending in President Obama’s  jobs bill will face fierce opposition from Republicans. Eric truly puts the “Can’t” in Cantor.

THIS JUST IN:  In light of the audience and candidate behavior at the last two Republican debates, it is now evident that conservatives are fine with everybody (except unborn babies) dying.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Put Your Mouth Where Our Money Is” features moonbat-crazy Teapublican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. Two bioethics professors have offered to pay more than $10,000 for medical records that prove the anecdote (the HPV vaccination cause “mental retardation”) that Bachmann told after Monday night’s Republican presidential debate is true. To date, not unexpectedly, Bachmann has not responded.

BREAKING NEWS:  Speaking of Michele Bachmann, inasmuch as the wild-eyed corndog-scoffing Tea-Bagger had the blatant audacity to utter the outlawed words “mental retardation”, will Sarah Palin return volley with her mandatory rebuke? Don’t hold your breath. Palin has a history of only criticizing Democrats and not Republicans for the offense.

THIS JUST IN: OurFuture.org reports that “Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-Vt.), today introduced a bill that, if passed by Congress and signed by the President, would insure Social Security’s solvency for the next 75 years—without having to cut a single person’s benefit.”  Sanders’ solution is simple: gradually eliminate the cap on wages subject to the payroll tax starting with people earning more than $250,000.00. This is the guy that should be advising President Obama on economic matters.

BREAKING NEWS:  Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker is having a very difficult time. He already faces a recall election after Wisconsin residents voiced their objection to his draconian attack on labor unions. Now, just this week, the FBI raided the home of one of his former top aides in what is presumed to be an investigation of aides campaigning for Walker on the taxpayer dollar and perhaps also some “pay to play”. Aah Scott Walker, we hardly knew ye!

THIS JUST IN:  Massachusetts Democrats have reason to celebrate. Teapublican Sen. Scott “Nudey” Brown finally has a serious opponent to his 2012 re-election efforts. Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law School professor, consumer advocate and architect of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has announced her candidacy for Ted Kennedy’s senate seat. The recapturing by Democrats of that seat would go a long way towards the party retaining its majority status in that congressional chamber. Scott Brown and his anti-middle class stance is not a good fit for true-blue Massachusetts.  Please consider making a donation to Elizabeth Warren’s campaign, here.

SCOTT BROWN

(sung to the Petula Clark song “Downtown”)

If Mass. is your home
And you are full of baloney,
You must surely be – Scott Brown
You have your worries,
With no clothes in snow flurries
You’re a nudist boy – Scott Brown

You’re popular in the woods but were voteless in the city
Your term is only two years Scott, and isn’t that a pity?
You’re sure to lose

You’ve got some Mitt Romney hair
But it grows down on your buttocks, we’ve seen when you’re bare, and so
Scott Brown – politics of hate when you’re
Scott Brown – voted right out the door
Scott Brown – private life’s waiting for you
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

Don’t wear a frown
As the Tea-Baggers surround you
They are friends not foes – Scott Brown
The “Party of No”
Is just the place that they go to
Where their hatred grows – Scott Brown

Just charm them with the rhythm of your naked bossanova
They’ll be bare-assed with you too before the night is over
Happy again

They’ll take off their underwear
Then they’ll forget all their troubles, forget all their cares like you,
Scott Brown – not erudite or bright
Scott Brown – every nudist’s delight
Scott Brown – you’re gonna be alright now
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

And you might find that your behind will help ingratiate you
With Larry Craig who loves the view and has a gentle hand to
Guide you along

You two would make quite a pair
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares dear bro
Scott Brown – you’ll get kicked out the door
Scott Brown – Won’t take a minute more
Scott Brown – Private life’s waiting for you

Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
(repeat and fade out)

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 89

Sorry about the late post but these beach days are cutting into Lynnrockets’ productivity!

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “She Said What?” features Republican presidential candidate and Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann. She appeared on a christian radio program this week and said that American citizens are telling her that one of their major concerns is the rise of the Soviet Union! Apparently Bachmann is unaware that the Soviet Union collapsed and dissolved in 1991. How do you spell “C-R-A-Z-Y”?

THIS JUST IN:  It was nice to learn (although not much of a peep from the media) that the two final Wisconsin recall elections took place last Tuesday and both Democratic Party incumbents (Jim Holperin and Bob Wirch) won convincingly.

BREAKING NEWS:  The Daily Kos reports that brand new Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry may face a little problem having to do with pornography. “Back in 1995, when his bouffant hairdo was barely all the rage, Rick Perry invested thousands of dollars into Movie Gallery, Inc, a porn distributor company. It was the largest distributor of porn movies, and was even opposed by the conservative American Family Association, the same organization that now claims to support Rick Perry after he showed up to host their prayer rally.” How is that for another example of “Republican Family Values”?

THIS JUST IN:  Speaking of Rick Perry, was anyone surprised to see that he was not so warmly welcomed in New Hampshire as he was in Iowa? The Boston Globe reports, “Hecklers carrying signs shouted from the sidewalk, “Stop attacking middle class families, Rick Perry,” as the smiling new presidential candidate shook hands and signed autographs. Perry, who declared his candidacy Saturday, was much more warmly received at visits today to Dover and Pembroke. For every admirer in Portsmouth who commended his work, there were several detractors armed with chiding questions about climate change, Social Security, or human evolution.”

BREAKING NEWS:  Republicans, Tea Baggers and conservatives of all ilk are taking  joy in criticizing President Obama’s vacation this week in Martha’s Vineyard, MA. They complain that he should be at the White House fixing the economy. These critics fail to mention however, that the Republican-led House of Representatives is on a MONTH long vacation instead of working on the economy. They also fail to mention that at the exact same time during his first term and while the nation was facing an unemployment rate of 9.5%, Ronald Reagan not only took a 25 day vacation, but his aides also stopped relaying news events to him so as not to disturb him. How is that for a monumental double-standard?

THIS JUST IN:  Speaking of the Tea Party, did any of you notice that data collected by The New York Times reveals that the Tea Party is “less popular than much maligned groups like ‘atheists’ and ‘Muslims'”?

BREAKING NEWS: It looks like freshman U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) will face a strong Democratic Party challenger in next year’s election. The Washington Post reports “Elizabeth Warren announced that she’s starting an exploratory committee for a potential U.S. Senate run in Massachusetts. The news doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The Harvard Law professor, who recently stepped down from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau she originated, has been the subject of Senatorial speculation for months, if not longer.” The paper goes on to say, “Ironically, Warren has something Brown now doesn’t, at least to the same extent: Passion from her followers. Yes, Scott Brown may have been an early harbinger that the Tea Party movement was a force to be reckoned with, able to turn [Ted] Kennedy’s seat from blue to red in what may be the most progressive state in the county. But the Tea Party has soured on Brown since then, putting him on target lists and accusing him of throwing it under the bus for his critiques of budget cuts. Meanwhile, the fervor progressives feel for Warren is a rare thing in a Washington plagued with a 12 percent approval rating for Congress and a Democratic party that’s falling out of love with its president.” Looks like the clothing-challenged Brown may have his hands full. That is great news!

Scott Brown’s favorite birthday suit

Charlie Brown song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UnPzp2lmNk

SCOTTIE BROWN

(sung to the Coasters song “Charlie Brown”)

Fe-fe, fi-fi, fo-fo, fum
He’s the senator that will bare his bum

Scottie Brown, Scottie Brown
He’s a clown, that nude Scott Brown
He likes to bare his bod
In those magazines
(That’s why everybody’s always pickin’ on me)

That’s him on his knees
I know that’s him
Yeah, from 7 come 11
Down in the Senate gym

Scottie Brown, Scottie Brown
He’s a clown, that nude Scott Brown
Craig thinks that he’s hot
He hopes to steal a peek
(Why’s Lynnrockets always pickin’ on me)

Who’s always nude at the roll call?
Who’s lurking in the men’s room stalls?
Who’s sporting his bat and balls?
Guess who? (who me?) yeah, you!

Who walks through the Senate dumb and slow?
Who calls Mitch McConnell, Daddy-O?

Scottie Brown, Scottie Brown
He’s going down, next time around
His votes can be bought
Just you wait and see
(Why’s everybody always pickin’ on me)

(musical interlude)

He is in the Party that says “No”
With his private parts swinging to and fro

Scottie Brown, Scottie Brown
He’s a clown, that nude Scott Brown
He’s showing a lot
His bum, his wee-wee
(Why’s Lynnrockets always pickin’ on me)

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 88

Sorry about the late post but these beach days are cutting into Lynnrockets’ productivity!

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: Democrats should not be disappointed at the results of last Tuesday’s Wisconsin recall elections. Although the Democrats failed to win the 3 seats necessary to switch majority rule over to them in the Wisconsin state senate they did win 2 seats. Consequently, the Republicans have 2 less seats than they did last Monday and there has been a 4 seat swing. Also, it should be remembered that 1 Republican senator stood apart from his party and opposed all of the labor-crushing bills promoted by Gov. Walker. Dale Schultz stood on the floor alone and voted with the Democrats. If he continues to adhere to his, dare we say, “mavericky” ways and vote with the Democrats, there will be a 17-16 pro-labor majority in Wisconsin. Every cloud has a silver lining.

THIS JUST IN:  Last Thursday’s Republican Presidential Debate exposed Mitt Romney as a flip-flopper yet again. (How many more times will we repeat that sentence before the Republican National Convention?). During the debate, Romney insisted that he opposes revenue-boosting tax increases. However, The Boston Globe has revealed that when he was Governor of Massachusetts, he bragged about them. They report, “The Romney administration in 2004 and 2005 quietly highlighted the state’s recent tax and fee hikes as part of an effort to persuade the financial rating agencies Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings to improve the state’s bond ratings. The administration’s bullet-point presentations to the agencies, made public through freedom of information requests, sought to make the case that Massachusetts had “acted decisively’’ to address the state’s fiscal problems with a combination of streamlining, belt-tightening budget cuts, and revenue enhancements. The enhancements included closing “tax loopholes’’ that would add “$269 million in additional recurring revenue’’ to state coffers, along with $271 million in increased fees, according to copies of the presentations.” Jeesh, summer is almost over. You would think it would be time for the Mitt(wit) to take off the flip-flops and slip into a more sensible shoe.

BREAKING NEWS:  The quote of the night from Thursday’s Republican debate came from Tim Pawlenty. He highlighted the list of Michele Bachmann’s non-achievements while in Congress and then said, “If that’s your record of results, please stop, because you’re killing us”. After Tim Good ‘N Pawlenty is eliminated from the race for the Presidency, he should pursue night work at the comedy clubs.

THIS JUST:  In other Massachusetts news, it appears that Elizabeth Warren, the architect of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is seriously considering to run against Freshman Teapublican U.S. Senator Scott Brown in 2012. This is great news for the citizens of the Bay State inasmuch as Warren is not only nationally recognized for her vast academic and professional achievements, but she is also a champion for consumers and the middle/working class. Warren has twice been named by Time Magazine as one of “The Most Influential People In The World”. In contrast, the only recognition earned by Scott Brown was as Cosmopolitan Magazine’s nude centerfold winner. This is a pure example of “substance over form”. Take a look at what happened at a Scott Brown fundraiser last week when he was confronted by members of the middle/working class:

BREAKING NEWS: Staying on the topic of Massachusetts for a moment longer, it was nice to see British Prime Minister David Cameron say he would turn to Boston for lessons in quelling angry riots in London. He was referring to both the peaceful celebration that followed the Bruins Stanley Cup triumph while angry fans took to the streets in Vancouver and to the “Boston Miracle” which has significantly reduced crime in the city.

THIS JUST IN:  Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced that he is entering the race for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Here are a few things you should know about Rick Perry. Like George W. Bush, Perry was a male cheerleader in college. According to his Texas A&M transcript, he earned 20 B’s, 27 C’s, and 9 D’s. A’s and F’s were rare. He earned only a bachelor’s degree and that was in Animal Science. Perry was also placed on academic probation for his poor performance in school. looks like Perry fits right in with the other unqualified GOP candidates.

BREAKING NEWS:  Capital Gains and Games has itemized a list of the 23 most recent polls, all of which reveal that a substantial majority of Americans believe that tax increases should be used to reduce the deficit. Show that list to the next Tea Party member that tells you otherwise.

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s episode of “Republicans Involved With Prostitutes” features Indiana State rep. Phillip Hinkle. The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports that “emails suggest Hinkle responded to a Craigslist ad which a man posted Aug. 6 in the “m4m,” or men for men, section. In the ad, Kameryn Gibson purported to be 18 years old and wrote, “I need a sugga daddy.” Gibson told the Star he’s actually 20. Emailing back-and-forth, Hinkle allegedly offered to pay Gibson up to $140 “for a really good time” and arranged to meet him at an upscale Indianapolis hotel Saturday night.” The paper goes on to report, “Gibson told the paper that when he and Hinkle were talking in a hotel room, he got cold feet after Hinkle mentioned he was a lawmaker. He said he tried to leave but Hinkle resisted, grabbing his rear end and exposing himself.” The local GOP chairman has called for Hinkle to resign? Will he? Who knows, David Vitter never resigned.

WALK WITH AN ERECTION

(sung to the Bangles song “Walk Like An Egyptian”)

All the G.O.P.s in bedrooms
They do the sex dance with their hoes
They’re getting their kicks (oh whey oh)
They think that their wives will never know

There sat Larry Craig with a smile
Hoping to score a tete-a-tete
He set for awhile (oh whey oh)
On the airport Men’s Room toilet

Cleans his pipe with a Handy Wipe play
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection

Mark Sanford goes missing for days
In South America for a score
He’s got the moves (oh whey oh)
But he’s a fink and his gal’s a whore

John Ensign met his while at work
Along with her son and her husband
He paid them like kings (oh whey oh)
No talking of his erection

All the guys in the G.O.P. say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection

(marital affair break)

Newt Gingrich left his wife with no tact
In the cancer ward on her back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
He even took her new Cadillac

Mark Vitter pulled out all the stops
His escorts charged him the very tops
They sing and dance (oh whey oh)
Spent his way right into hawk

Then there’s Mark Foley with his men
He says he won’t do it again
But those heinies know (oh whey oh)
He works with a big erection

All the boys in the G.O.P. say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection
Walk with an erection
