The Lyrics

How dare Dubya permit such a thing, just like Clinton, and Reagan, and Carter, and every president back to FDR.
Ah, let's go search without a warrant
Ah, let's go search without a warrant

Warrantless searches
So said the story appearing in the New York Times
Are they a crime?
How did they learn this?
Did they find out from a source that was really a leak
Only last week?

Search without a warrant
The Congress was informed
Search without a warrant
They say it's not the norm

Critics relentless
Saying that Dubya is acting as if he were king
For the right wing
Can't help but wonder
Where were they when Mister Clinton inflicted the same
On Aldrich Ames?

Search without a warrant
The Congress was informed
Search without a warrant
Guess what, it's been the norm

Ah, let's go search without a warrant
Ah, let's go search without a warrant

Warrantless searches
They are allowed as intelligence gathering tools
Within the rules
If we don't have them
We might not learn until terrorists kill us again
We don't know when

Search without a warrant
The Congress was informed
Search without a warrant
Guess what, it's been the norm
Now I understand why there was a "wall" between intelligence and law enforcement. The methods used by intelligence to gather information would render it inadmissable as evidence, if performed by law enforcement.

Never knew so many Presidents used this. Doesn't make poor old Bush so evil, huh?

Except of course, that previous presidents DIDN'T USE THIS. Typical Republican talking point of "but Clinton...." except now they're even using Jimmy Carter in their whiney protests (and just plain making crap up).

The "warrantless" searches conducted legally in the past, were not directed towards individuals. They were random samplings of what was intercepted from the air. The newest allegation of radiation monitoring of Mosques is DEFINITELY illegal, it was already proven twenty years ago that infra-red scanning of a property without a warrant was illegal.

Yes, Dubya's actions were unconstitutional but then so is his presidency.

"Dude," stop confusing the situation (and defaming Mr. Bush) with the truth. His bootlickers don't want to hear it. They'd rather go on believing him to be a great and moral leader who has Americans' best interests at heart.

Excellent job, Steve. As the parody points out, Congress was informed; and waiting for a warrant when tracking down al Qaeda suspects who can change cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses daily is something the administration would be severely criticized for after the next 9/11.

Welcome to Fascism - we're glad to have you on board. Who cares about the Bill of Rights? Afterall, it was written more than 200 years ago. Let's just keep the 2nd Amendment, shall we?
