President Obama has returned from vacation,
Recharged and ready to lead this great nation.
Though with a do-nothing Congress,
He doesn’t have much choice,
But to instigate some serious executive action.
Rick Perry left the courthouse grinning and defiant,
Leaving behind a his mugshot and set of fingerprints.
If he abused his power
While serving as Texas governor,
Just think of the powers he could abuse as president.
A growing trend that should make us all wary
Is their change from mildly threatening to really scary.
Ferguson just proves it —
If they own it, they’ll shoot it,
As cops become less like police and more like the military.
Some say her political instincts are superior,
But she shouldn’t have called Obama’s foreign policy inferior.
She said she was sorry,
And even hugged him at a party,
But Karl Rove says Hillary was just “covering her political posterior.”
If Fox News Hasn’t offended you lately, don’t worry,
It’ll soon find the low point in the cable-news slurry.
Smith called Robin a coward
To help fill the news hour,
And as Shep himself said, he “couldn’t be more sorry.”
Remember when she was armed, dangerous, in flannel?
Well now she’s assumed the news reporter’s mantel.
So we can be perpetually annoyed
By someone who’s actually unemployed.
Just tune in to the new Sarah Palin Channel.
Get Rick Perry out from behind a teleprompter,
And he’s more like butcher, less like a doctor.
When it comes to immigration,
Just pass him some ammunition.
He’s shooting little wetbacks from a helicopter.
No one said that being a U.S. senator was all games and fun,
There are important political battles to be fought and won.
But the Senate’s leadership
Fell prey to partisanship,
And now we can’t recall the last time senators got anything done.
