Song for Dick and Lynne Cheney.
In the spirit of such song writers as Mad Kane I was inspired last weekend to write a song for the Cheney's. It should be sung Bob-Dylan-style to the music of The Traveling Wilburys' song 'Congratulations'.
Fake indignation - you're breaking my heart
Fake indignation - when's your weeping going to start?
Fake indignation - you almost did succeed
Fake indignation - with your calculated screed
This morning I looked out my window and found
A Republican spinning but no one else was around
Your daughter's sexuality cannot be discussed
Except when it serves your particular purpose
Fake indignation -you're up to your tricks
Fake indignation - of playing dirty politics
Fake indignation – you're bringing us down
Fake indignation - we’d be better off without you around
I guess that I almost believed you when you called Kerry bad
But behind your scowls you were actually pretty glad
You had one more chance to distort the record again
Another disingenuous attack as a means to an end
Fake indignation - you're making use of hate
Fake indignation - I hope it's too late
Fake indignation – enough is enough
Fake indignation - let's hope the voters call your bluff
