The Lyrics

This election threatens to be the most contentious since 1860, and with some desiring the same outcome. I like this tune, from the post-9/11 Postal Service ad.
Let illegals vote
Cast ballots from the cemetery
Come, the fraud has just begun
Our task is to get faking
Calculating. Thugs intimidating
Mark 'em in advance, prepared for mailing
No ID required, the safeguards failing
This time when we vote
Results will not soon be forthcoming
Expired, our democracy
Will this get any comments? At one time I could have unleashed a firestorm with any expression of political opinion. Now, I get the feeling nobody is reading them anymore.

The problem with these two parodies is that you don't make it clear which side you're on. Is the joke on the left or the right? Who's supposed to find it funny?

Perhaps I'm just an outside observer, viewing the way the Democrat, as opposed to democratic process works. Faking votes since at least 1868. I didn't really plan for funny, but I don't mind if someone finds it humorous. I just noticed that a conservative can give up in the face of insanity and just let the leftists have their way. I noticed you mentioned "both" parodies. Did you mean the one about the facemasks, too? I definitely believe that the masks are nothing more than a fashion statement. No medical value. Says so on the package. All the regulations about who can sit where to watch a ballgame or eat dinner are so blatantly stupid that I hope people will get angry enough to end the careers of any politician or bureaucrat who tries to enforce them.
