Steve Scalise’s unchecked racism is exceedingly unsavory,
And John Boehner’s defense of him was the height of knavery.
But Steve really fit the bill
When he attempted to kill
A Louisiana state measure apologizing for slavery.
Those who oppose Speaker Boehner come from the fringe,
And those who opposed him now have no right to whinge.
Because once they voted,
Their betrayal was noted,
And they set themselves up for Speaker Boehner’s revenge.
Grover Norquist exhibits nothing if not temerity,
But his remarks on the economic recovery inspire hilarity.
In Grover’s world,
The recovery’s unfurled,
Not due to Obama’s policies, but to Republican austerity.
The political outlook for the Left looks dismal,
And the Progressive brand is damaged collateral.
You know the worm has turned,
When wingnuts co-opt our term,
And David Koch calls himself a “social liberal.”
The opportunities for a president to address the nation are few,
But the GOP wants to punish him for pushing immigration reform through.
They want to put the kibosh on
This year’s State of the Union,
But it’ll be a sad day if POTUS doesn’t get to give his SOTU.
