Scott Brown’s $64,000 Unanswered Question

Teapublican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts has been busy attacking his Democratic Party opponent Elizabeth Warren for the last week regarding her Native American heritage. His campaign has been suggesting that Ms. Warren in fact has no such heritage or that her Native American roots are so distant that she has no right to acknowledge them. Brown’s implication is that Warren should somehow be ashamed or embarrassed by claiming her heritage.

First of all, it should be noted that it has been determined that Ms. Warren has in fact descended from at least one Cherokee and that she has 1/32 Native American lineage. As a point of comparison, it should also be noted that Bill John Baker, the present Chief of the Cherokee Nation is also 1/32 Cherokee by blood. Should Chief Baker also be criticized? Despite Warren’s confirmed heritage however, Scott Brown continues to maintain that, “if there are questions she should answer them.” Elizabeth Warren has answered those questions.

It is Scott Brown however, who should be ashamed and embarrassed by his refusal to answer a question. The particular question asked of Brown by Massachusetts law enforcement is if he is willing to identify the person who he alleges molested him as a child. To date, Scott Brown has refused to identify this person thereby potentially enabling a child molester to continue abusing children.

Scott Brown injected himself into the spotlight last year when he issued a press release for his yet unreleased autobiography titled “Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances”. That press release revealed for the first time that the clothing-challenged Brown had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse on at least three occasions and by two different deviants. Two of those molestations occurred at a Massachusetts summer camp and the other happened at an unidentified location. By including that bit of personal red meat in the pre-publication release, there is no denying that the revelation was intended to launch sales of his book.

Brown however, has steadfastly refused to identify his molester and has also refused to assist law enforcement agencies in investigating the matter. When asked by local television station WBZ, at the time of the book’s release, if he would pursue his alleged sexual abuser, Brown said, “I have more important things to do… he’s probably in his 70s today.” Massachusetts Cape and Islands District Attorney, Michael O’Keefe reports that Scott Brown told him he didn’t want to pursue the case.  By means of his investigation obstruction, Scott Brown has painted himself into a corner from which he may not be able to escape without a permanent unsightly stain on his moral character.

The Senator had every right to keep his sexual abuse to himself as a matter of personal privacy. Indeed, he recently admitted that until the release of his book, he never mentioned the molestation to anyone including his mother and wife. That was his prerogative, but as soon as Brown publicized the abuse in his memoir, the rules changed. The criminal allegations have now been made public by Brown and there are resultant ramifications and obligations which must be addressed. Scott Brown now has a moral duty to reveal the identity of his abuser if for no other reason than to prevent this sexual predator from hurting more children. It makes no difference that the criminal is “probably in his 70′s” because there are numerous examples of convicted sexual predators in that age range. Additionally, inasmuch as sex offenders tend to repeat their crimes, it was quite likely that an identification made by a victim with Brown’s stature would urge any other past victims to come forward.

That is precisely what has happened since Brown’s confession. Shortly after the release of the book, an unidentified man came forward and claimed that he was molested at a Massachusetts summer camp (Camp Good News) where it has been confirmed that Brown also stayed. Indeed, this second victim said he came forward as the result of Brown’s disclosure. The difference between this victim and the nudist Senator however, is that this man had the courage and moral fortitude to assist law enforcement in its attempts to capture a child molester on the loose. In fact, the victim’s lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, said that his client would “fully cooperate” with any investigation because “he wants to make the world a safer place for children.”

Shortly after this new victim contacted law enforcement, we learned that the alleged molester Charles Devita, took his own life when he learned that he was being investigated. Brown has said that Devita was not his molester. If Devita was indeed a child abusing sexual deviant, then his reign of terror has ended and he will never violate a child again. The suicide occurred so quickly on the heels of the identification that it would appear that the person either felt that his capture was imminent or he suffered from an uncontrollable level of guilt. Since then, Garabedian has been contacted by two more brave men that claim to have been sexually molested at the camp by Devita as well as an additional brave man and woman who claim to have been molested at the camp by someone else. The investigation by law enforcement of that “someone else” is now under way and it is likely that if there is evidence of his guilt, that “someone else” will be brought to justice and another child molester will be prevented from re-offending.

All the while, Scott Brown continues to refuse to divulge the identity of his abuser to law enforcement agencies while maintaining that his molester was not Devita. This means that Brown continues to enable his molester to roam freely with the potential to defile again. Brown appeared on Boston radio host Howie Carr’s program on WRKO AM 680 in April of 2011 and was confronted by the host regarding Brown’s refusal to assist in bringing a potentially dangerous child molester to justice.

Carr asked the following question: Isn’t it important for you to come out and name or at least cooperate?

Brown responded: Howie, nobody has asked me to do anything.

Carr then said: But, can we agree that pedophiles don’t usually stop committing these crimes?

Brown responded: Historically that’s accurate, yeah.

Carr then followed with: So, isn’t it the best move to inform the authorities who molested you?

Brown responded: Howie, I have no evidence that the person who did it to me 42 years ago is no. 1 even alive and no. 2 is doing it again…If I had any … inclination whatsoever I certainly would do anything… but once again, I’m moving forward in my own way…

Carr followed-up with:  …So, O’Keefe (Cape and Islands District Attorney) has not spoken to you. Is that what you are saying?

Brown said:  I’m not gonna talk to you about it anymore because it’s really nothing to do with what I’m doing on Capitol Hill right now.

Carr then put Brown on the spot again by saying:  OK, one last question. You don’t feel any guilt about what happened this morning (i.e. the alleged suspect’s suicide)?

Brown then selfishly answered:  … I’m a victim Howie, so I felt guilty long enough…

Carr:  But there could be other victims.

Brown’s non-answer:  If that’s the case. If me and the young man who came forward have given other people the strength to move forward and come out and talk about it, then it’s great.

Here is the audio link of the Carr/Brown interview. The juicy stuff starts at the 1:45 minute mark:  http://audio.wrko.com/a/39260794/senator-scott-brown.htm

To date, thirteen brave former victims of child sexual molestation from Camp Good Hope have come forward and identified “less than five” alleged child molesters. Scott Brown’s continued obstruction is inexcusable. It is morally abhorrent for him to profit by means of publicizing his own childhood sexual molestation and then to claim that he wants to keep the identity of the perpetrator a private matter. His book made this a public matter, and victims may be mounting as Scott Brown selfishly protects a child molester by refusing to identify him. As thirteen unheralded abuse victims did the brave thing and not only came forward, but assisted in bringing at least two child molesters to justice, Scott Brown cowardly sits on the sidelines counting his book sale royalties while another unidentified child molester may remain on the prowl.

When asked whether an identification by Scott Brown of his alleged molester would be of some assistance,  Attorney Mitchell Garabedian said, “Would it help if he named the molester? Sure’’.

It appears as if there is at least this one very serious question which Scott Brown should answer. Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats may disagree on many issues, but protecting child molesters is not one of them.

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

And maybe you’ll see him bare
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares dear bro
Scott Brown – get right down on all fours
Scott Brown – don’t wait a minute more
Scott Brown – Larry Craig’s waiting for you

Rick Perry Is Now Praying For Attendees At His Failing Prayer Rally

Dear God please sell some tickets!

There is no question that Republican voters are not fired-up about their League of Unextraordinory Gentlemen (and woman) posing as candidates for the 2012 Presidential election. Can you blame them? Just look at the present contenders. Mitt (Flip-Flop) Romney; Newt Blingrich; Tim (Vanilla) Pawlenty; Rick (Man on Dog) Santorum; Michele (Pray the Gay Away) Bachmann; Jon ( I Love Obama) Huntsman; Ron (Dr. No) Paul; Herman (Convert or Kill Infidels) Cain; Gary (Who?) Johnson; Fred (Who?) Karger; Andy (Who?) Martin; Thaddeus (Who?) McCotter; Roy (Who?) Moore and Buddy (Who?) Roemer. Ouch! This group needs some new blood. But who?

Right now the consensus celebrity of the moment is Texas Governor Rick Perry. He is the soup of the day for conservative Teapublicans because of his outspoken disdain for all things Obama, his southern red-neck locale and his discriminatory “Christianity or Bust” agenda of commingling the affairs of church and state. It just might be the last of those characteristics however, which diminishes his chances of nationwide electoral success.

Perry was riding a big wave of national Republican support and then something funny happened on the way to the GOP nomination. Perry announced last month that he was organizing and sponsoring a seven-hour “Christian prayer gathering” at Houston’s Reliant Stadium this Saturday. The event is called “The Response” but non-Christians have been banned from the 71,500 seat stadium. Consequently, Perry has been facing fierce criticism from those who believe he is going too far with mixing church and state and for discriminating against Texans and Americans with alternative religious beliefs.

Perry is also facing non-interest from those with whom he shares an evangelical background. With only 2 days remaining before the event, Perry has only sold about 8,000 tickets. That is a glaring indication of a disastrous lack of enthusiasm for the potential candidate. Moreover, Perry faces even more negative publicity if, as expected, some of the more controversial speaking pastors sermon long and hard about “the homosexual agenda”. The anti-gay message has been losing steam of late not only with independents, but also with middle of the road Republicans. Additionally, any such homophobic rhetoric could be used against Perry by his opponents.

Perry’s event will be hosted by the American Family Association, a 501(c)3 organization that opposes pornography and abortion and describes homosexuality as the product of “a sinful heart.” The group’s website states:

“We believe the core goal of the homosexual movement is to abolish the traditional, Judeo-Christian view of human sexuality, marriage and family.”

The American Family Association is also classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Rick Perry’s association with such a group is remarkable in that it is certain to reflect poorly upon him in the eyes of the national electorate. Then again, perhaps Rick Perry’s “The Response” is just his subtle way of announcing that he has no plans to seek the Republican Presidential nomination after-all.

So, here’s to you Sarah Palin. Our nation’s Tea Party Republicans turn their lonely eyes to you! Whoo-hoo-hoo!

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY PERRY WISH-LIST

 (sung to the Frank Sinatra song “Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas”)

Have yourself a merry Perry wish-list
Rick loves the far right
He loves you, if you are Christian, rich and white

Have yourself a merry Perry wish-list (merry Perry wish-list)
That’s if you’re not gay (that’s if you’re not gay)
If you are, then simply pray that gay away

Rick Perry loves those olden days
Church-beholden days of yore
All those blacks that were near to us
In the rear of bus for sure

Tea-Baggers will vote for Rick together
Jews are not allowed
Muslims too are barred and for that Rick is proud
So have yourself a merry Perry wish-list now

(Rick Perry loves those olden days
Church-beholden days of yore
All those blacks that were near to us
In the rear of bus for sure)

Souvenirs of us and Rick together
He’s our sacred cow
Rick is our God on earth in the here and now
So have yourself a merry Perry wish-list now

Run Along Now Sarah Palin, Adults Are Trying To Have A Debt Ceiling Discussion Here (Part 2)

Palin uses sign language to demonstrate what she knows about the debt ceiling.

On Wednesday Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off ran the first segment of this story.

We reported that as the August 2nd Debt Ceiling deadline looms and the President and members of Congress attempt to devise some sort of mutually acceptable legislation which will serve to increase the ceiling, cut future spending and raise revenues, America’s most famous unelected celebrity wanted to have her say. Her words and advice of course, had no positive effect on debt ceiling negotiations. They only served to fan the fires of acrimony and widen the divide between Democratic and Republican negotiators.

First she attacked President Obama by saying,

“Scaring the American people is exactly what President Obama is doing. The president’s getting pretty good at this fear mongering and trying to cram down the public’s throat this idea of bigger government, more spending.”

She then criticized Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner by saying,

“The internal problem that he has is reinventing the wheel here in the 11th hour, when we already have Cut, Cap and Balance that passed the House, and we don’t need to retreat now and wave a white flag. This August 2 deadline is looming, but it’s not Armageddon, it’s not life-or-death, so Boehner and the Republicans have got to make sure that they’ve got a good plan in front of those who will be voting on this plan.”

But the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska who managed to obtain a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism only after attending 5 different colleges in 6 years, was not finished yet. Oh no. Palin was right back at it again yesterday. This time she directed her meritless comments at freshmen Teapublican members of Congress who signed the infamous Grover Norquist “No Tax Pledge”.  On her Facebook page (where else?) she posted, in pertinent part, this dribble,

“Republicans campaigned on a promise to rein in out-of-control government spending. These are promises that you must keep…I respectfully ask these GOP Freshman to … remember us ‘little people’ who believed in them, donated to their campaigns, spent hours tirelessly volunteering for them, and trusted them with our votes. This new wave of public servants may recall that they were sent to D.C. for such a time as this.”

Did Sarah Palin just refer to herself as a “little people”? Did she honestly spend “hours tirelessly volunteering for” all those Tea Party members? Really? Even with all those self-promoting book tours and reality television show travels and Fox News appearances on her busy schedule?  And just what in the wide, wide world of confusion was she actually telling the Tea Partiers to do? Was it intended to be an instruction from headquarters that they must reign in spending in the debt ceiling negotiations by refusing to raise the ceiling under any circumstances? The timing would suggest that. But if so, that makes no sense because the debt ceiling increase only allows our nation to pay its pre-existing debts. It does not authorize any new spending. What is this dimwit talking about?

Honestly, Ms. Palin, have you forgotten that inasmuch as you hold no elective office, you have no meaningful standing to inject yourself into the debate? Your voice is one that does not matter or have any positive effect.

So Sarah Palin we repeat, please take note that adults are trying to discuss the debt ceiling and it would be best for the country if you would just run along.

By the way, we are just wondering whether you plan to run for President? Any update or is that another matter on which you have nothing significant to say?

Let’s try it once again,
We’ll mimic Sarah P.,
But let’s do it while we’re drinking too

Go kill a polar bear,

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 85

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:  Has anybody noticed that Fox News has reported on the Rupert Murdoch scandal far less than any other cable television station? Could that be because Murdoch owns Fox News?

THIS JUST IN:  The next time some right wing conservative tells you that Medicare must be abolished because it is unsustainable, please remind them that “over the program’s 75-year planning horizon is less than 0.4 percent of GDP. This is less than one quarter of the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

BREAKING NEWS:  CNN reported that Democrats and Republicans squared off in the 50th annual Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington Thursday night. The Republicans never led in this one, falling to the Democrats 8-2 in front of more than 7,000 fans. How appropriate.

THIS JUST IN:  Moonbat-crazy Teapublican Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann announced on Friday that she has quit her church. Bachmann, a Minnesota congresswoman, and her husband, Marcus, withdrew their membership from Salem Lutheran Church in Stillwater, Minnesota, last month, according to church officials. When asked about the Bachmanns leaving the church, Pastor Marcus Birkholz said, “I’ve been asked to make no comments regarding them and their family.” Have “the chickens come home to roost”?

BREAKING NEWS:  Business Insider reports that One of the most-respected and economically intelligent publications in the world, The Economist, has turned against the Republican party for its disgraceful behavior with respect to the US debt-ceiling negotiations. The Republicans, the Economist points out, would rather disrupt the US economy and put the country into default than compromise on a long-term deficit and debt reduction plan. This behavior is an abdication of the Republicans’ responsibilities as elected officials.  It puts the Republicans’ self-interest ahead of the country’s. The Republicans’ stance on the debt-ceiling has now gone so far, in fact, that the Republicans appear to be trying to disrupt the economy in order to improve their chances in the next elections, rather than address an economic crisis that threatens to affect millions of Americans. This is not practical or responsible. It’s also not patriotic. It’s traitorous. Jeesh The Economist, don’t sugar-coat it. Tell us how you really feel.

THIS JUST IN:  It was nice to learn that Democrat Janice Hahn easily won a congressional seat (recently vacated by Democrat Jane Harman) in California’s 36th District, fending off a special election challenge from Republican Craig Huey. So much for GOP momentum.

BREAKING NEWS:  Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich‘s campaign is over $1 million in debt. And this is the guy that was going to lead our nation out of its financial difficulties?

THIS JUST IN:  Here is moonbat-crazy Teapublican Michele Bachmann‘s gaffe of the week:

BREAKING NEWS:  Bristol Palin expects “more obnoxious lies” from Levi Johnston in his new book. Wow, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. Remember, Bristol Palin said her “virginity was stolen”.

Paperback writer (paperback writer)

Dear Todd and Sarah, will you read my tome?
It took a year to write while raising Tripp alone
It’s based on my life as a teen-aged quack
And a bunch of folks that I wanna attack as a paperback writer,
Paperback writer

A book of topics that I want a say on,
Which I wrote with finger-paints and a crayon.
Do not expect too much from this school drop-out,
I can’t read too well but I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It’s got twenty pages give or take a few,
And it has some pictures that Piper drew.
I threw in an old joke that my mom once told
It’s a real page-turner and I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer

I tell a tall tale about camping one night
I drank wine coolers and got high as a kite.
Lost my virginity, yes let’s make that clear,
That sure gave me a boost and now I can be a paperback writer.

The GOP’s Debt Ceiling Dilemma

Debt Ceiling Dopes

The Republicans have truly painted themselves into a corner with regard to their refusal to raise the debt ceiling.  Their demand that the ceiling may only be raised along with substantial entitlement cuts but without any tax increases for the wealthy or the closing of tax loopholes for corporations, is unrealistic. Unfortunately for the GOP, the American public has seen through the charade.

CNN reports that a Quinnipiac University survey indicates that two-thirds of the public say an agreement to raise the debt limit should include tax hikes for wealthy Americans and corporations, not just spending cuts. According to the poll, almost half of voters say congressional Republicans would be mainly responsible if there’s no agreement, with 34 percent saying the Obama administration would be most at blame. By a 49 to 33 percent margin, independent voters would blame the GOP more than the administration. Additionally, a Gallup poll released Wednesday reveals that 73% of Americans believe that some sort of tax increase should be included with raising the debt ceiling. These polls indicate that the Republican Party is out of step with the majority of Americans.

The entrenched Republicans understand their unpopular position but most can do nothing to extricate themselves from it. The reason for their dilemma is that most every member of the GOP. has signed a no-tax-hike pledge. A whopping 235 House members and 41 senators, almost all of them Republicans, signed a pledge written by Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, in which they promised not to raise taxes for any reason whatsoever. Consequently, they face being called liars if they do the right thing and abide by the wishes of Americans to include increased tax revenues in a debt ceiling bill.

Republicans do not want to anger their small but radically conservative base by breaking their pledge, so their new tactic is to try to fool the American public into believing that an American credit default would not be disastrous. Everyday we hear some Tea Party backed Republican proclaim that things would pretty much carry on as normal if the nation defaults. Even Presidential candidates Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann are echoing that fallacy.

The reality however, is that a national credit default would cause untold damage to our frail economy. Interest rates would likely soar as the value of the dollar plummets. Our debt obligations would also increase drastically as the result of higher interest rates on our national debt. Our nation would also be faced with the difficult decision of deciding between paying our creditors or meeting our obligations to Social Security recipients and military families. A truly bad situation.

To put things in better perspective, the aptly-named Perspectives.com offers this wonderful list of “The 10 Things The GOP Does Not Want You To Know About The Debt“:

  1. Republican Leaders Agree U.S. Default Would Be a “Financial Disaster”
  2. Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt
  3. George W. Bush Doubled the National Debt
  4. Republicans Voted Seven Times to Raise Debt Ceiling for President Bush
  5. Federal Taxes Are Now at a 60 Year Low
  6. Bush Tax Cuts Didn’t Pay for Themselves or Spur “Job Creators”
  7. Ryan Budget Delivers Another Tax Cut Windfall for Wealthy
  8. Ryan Budget Will Require Raising Debt Ceiling – Repeatedly
  9. Tax Cuts Drive the Next Decade of Debt
  10. $3 Trillion Tab for Unfunded Wars Remains Unpaid

Sometimes the facts and the truth can prove to be painful. In this case they are truly painful to the Republican Party.

Adios, Ron Paul

Some good news actually came out of Washington yesterday. After he loses his third bid for the Presidency, Teapublican Ron Paul is quitting his Congressional seat. The Republican Tea Party champion has announced that after serving 24 years as representative of Texas’ 14th Congressional District, he will not seek re-election. Thank the Lord for small miracles.

In earlier blog posts we have highlighted some of Ron Paul’s ideas and positions such as:

He is known as “Dr. No” because of his insistence that he will “never vote for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution”;

– He advocates withdrawal from the United Nations, and from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO);

– He opposes birthright citizenship;

– He advocates for the elimination of the Federal Reserve;

– He would deny women their right of freedom of choice in birth;

– He believes that the civil Rights act of 1964 is unconstitutional; and

– He is worried that our nation’s gold supply might have gone missing from Fort Knox.

We have also previously printed some of Paul’s racist quotes as attributed to him in his very own newsletter such as:

– “Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”;

– “opinion polls consistently show only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions”;

– “if you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”.

What more does one need to know about Ron Paul? He is quite simply a radically wacky racist that our nation will be better off without.

Ah Ron, we hardly knew ye!

TEA BAGGING MEN (RON PAUL VERSION)

(sung to the Billy Joel song “Piano Man”)

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
Rand Paul comes marching in
A proud member of the Tea Party
Like so many white racist men

He says, “Boy you know that I’m from Kentucky
And I think that Obama blows
It was sad and back-street how he chastised BP
Just because their damn oil rigs explode”

La la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

Sing us a song you Tea-Bagging men
Sing us a song tonight
Give us some patriotic imagery
Tri-corn hats and a wig that’s too tight

Now Sarah Palin is no friend of mine
Thank God she’s not the VP
Yes she looked like a dope every time she misspoke
As McCain claimed she was “mavericky”

She says, “Why does the press keep on grilling me?”
As her smile runs away from her face
“Can’t they see I’m a tabloid-bred superstar,
Though I quit my job in disgrace?”

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Ron Paul is a right-wing apologist
He is anti-gay and pro-life
Grasp of history’s hazy and he’s moon-bat crazy
Ron Paul should be confined for life

And Scott Walker’s union-busting politics
Sparked a recall to get him de-throned
While Mike Huckabee thinks his “down-hominess”
Will coax liberals to leave him alone

Sing us a song you Tea-Bagging men
Sing us a song tonight
Give us some patriotic imagery
Tri-corn hats and a wig that’s too tight

Had a pretty big crowd just last Saturday
With the Tea Baggers dressed in high style
They were at a rally with signs misspelled badly
To express ignorance all the while

And the town common, it looks like a carnival
With the Tea Baggers from far and near
They unload from their cars lots of feathers and tar
As they fan flames of hatred and fear!

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Sing us your song you Tea Bagging men
Sing us your song tonight
Cuz we’re all in the mood for a melody
Sung by folks that are old, dumb and white

(fade into extinction)
