'Tis the day after Christmas, down in Pensacola;
And Republicans still don't know shit from Shinola.
A policeman belongs in each classroom they say
But don't raise our taxes to give them their pay.
Don't slow down the spending on war and defense,
But lowering Medicare payments makes sense.
Social Security's only a socialist plot.
Tax cuts are important but Medicaid's not.
A fiscal cliff's coming, say those in the know,
But it's hard to make terms with the Party of No,
And even if Barack gets us through this alright
A debt ceiling deadline's sure to mean a new fight.
Republicans all want to push for austerity,
Help for the poor? They respond with vulgarity!
The rich need our aid, not the homeless and old,
The Romneys are suffering is what we are told.
So Christmas has come and it's gone on its way
And the battle continues day after day.
And this is my wish for each right-wing a-hole…
That Santa Claus gave them all nothing but coal!
Happy Holidays to all my Left In Alabama peeps! Thank God (or whomever) we will be facing the challenges with Barack Obama in the White House.
