Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Denny: J. Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the (and as big as a) House. Law: Cardinal Bernard Law, Archbishop of Boston until the priestly-pedophilia scandal drove him from office; now a Vatican official.
Ah! Achin' rocks has his hot chum.
Denny's like Law 'cause he kept mum
While non-Saint Mark tried to get some.

Wanted Florida race won by scum,
Denny's like Law 'cause he kept mum
While subaltern tried to get some.

Mark hits on pages. . . love to feel those lads.
In his last race he won.
Now Denny claims that by Mark he was had.

Denny's like Law: reptilian;
Mark, rank and 'phile Republican,
Off'rin' peeps to page of sex gun.
Denny's like Law 'cause he kept mum
While his hard charge tried to get some.

Mark digs those pages; he's their best chum.
Denny's like Law 'cause he kept mum
As his report tried to get some.

Mark slept with pages in his dreams; their dads
Were shocked, as were their mums.
The kids' "friend" turned out to be bad, and fat
Denny says, "Aw, shucks, what's become
Of this au-gust institution?!"

Excellent parody with a lot of good lines and a very good use of "Law." But I think you are being too hard on the Speaker. From what I have read, Speaker Hastert erred in not bringing the Democratic member of the committee on pages into the discipline decision process. But I think it was appropriate for the Speaker just to warn Foley about communicating with former pages when informed in 2005 of the "overly friendly" e-mails that the St. Petersburg Times and Miami Herald independently concluded were so innocuous as to be unworthy of publication.

DD - It may have yet to hit your area newspapers but you're going to find out soon. Hastert knew about this in 2000. A former Foley aid - who just quit his job with Reynolds (fascist from upstate New York) - says he warned Hastert about Foley years ago. It really is a sin to allow a predator to go on abusing underage boys for so long; so I hope Hastert is thrown out if he doesn't resign. It's also so unfortunate that a situation like this is taking attention away from the real problem - the unjust war in Iraq.

Thanks, DD, Alvin, XXX. One way or another, Denny needs to go. Politics trumps predation for this bag man from a notoriously corrupt district. Not surprisingly, he was the Abramoff tit.

Fine skewering... Reptilian and Republican... only you! (Well, and maybe Tong)
