Political Carols

Sometimes that danged old bird of parodies flies up my nose and I can't get rid of it until things like the following come out:

(“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”)

Rudolph the Guiliani
Has a very big ego
Combover notwithstanding
He still thinks he is the show
All of the other right wing
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Play in any Red State games

Then one 9/11 morn
His star began to shine
Rudolph with his tough guy game
Thought he’d cash in on the fame

But some in the real Red States
Gathered round to shout and sneer
Rudolph the Giuliani
It’s never gonna be your year!

(“Go Tell It on the Mountain

Go tell it to Pyongyang
Nuclear weapons, no you do-o-n’t
Go tell it to North Korea
“Our missiles are airborne”

(“O, Come All Ye Faithful”)

It's Barak Obama
Easily triumphant
O come ye, in two years
The White House awaits

Come and behold him
Try to play the angles
O, no you can’t ignore him
O, not another Gore, him
O, don’t let Shrum before him
He’s not Harold Ford

(“Good King Wenceslas”)

Good King Abdullah looked out
On Mideast of trouble
Where the oil lay underneath
The sands ready to bubble.

In his father’s steps he trod
While sounding oh so British
Wary of the old King Fahd
He probably speaks Yiddish

Strife between Arab and Jew
In their face, the fists in
Why can’t folks of every hue
Start acting like a Christian

("Let it Snow")

Popular ratings they are frightful
The boss is not insightful,
And who has sunk to new low
Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

("Angels We Have Heard on High")

Hagel, we have heard would die
For a presidential try.
Chuck you’ve got to use your brain
The newsies love their John McCain
Me-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-dia, in USA Todayo
