The Lyrics

The most compelling evidence of Bush's high crimes and misdemeanors is the revelation that he repeatedly authorized National Security Agency spying on US citizens without obtaining the required warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court. Constitutional experts, politicians and ex-intelligence experts agree that Bush "committed a federal crime by wiretapping Americans." Rep. John Lewis --"the first major House figure to suggest impeaching Bush," said the AP--argued that the president "deliberately, systematically violated the law" in authorizing the wiretapping. Lewis added: "He is not King, he is president."
I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
For the NSA
Night and day;
I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
Recording now
Hmm, hmm, hmm

Just a grown-up boy
With high-tech surveillance toys
I tap domestic calls or foreign;
Whenever I suspect
Members of Islamic sects,
I listen in without a warrant!

I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
Tappin' on your phone
While you're home!
I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
Recording now

(Instrumental interlude accompanied by whirrs, clicks, buzzes, and a voice saying, "Roger, Mr. President, we have confirmed that several of the student anti-war protesters are in fact Muslims")

Congress, it's a fact:
Since you passed the Patriot Act
It's time for you to trust Big Brother!
Wonder if you know
That you're part of my peep show;
Could you please talk a little slower?

I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
For the NSA
Night and day!
I'm a wiretapper
I'm a wiretapper
Recording now
Hmm, hmm, hmm

"The Department of Justice believes, and the case law supports, that the president has inherent authority to conduct warrentless physical searches for foreign intelligence purposes, and the President may, as has been done, delegate this authority to the Attorney General. It is important to understand that the rules and methodology for criminal searches are inconsistent with the collection of foreign intelligence and would unduly frustrate the President in carrying out his foreign intelligence responsibilities." No, this is NOT a quote from Ashcroft or other Bushie, but from CLINTON-administration Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, testimony on 7/14/1994 before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Interesting how those who fault Bush for warrantless searches, not serving in Vietnam, and attacking a country which was not a threat to us had no problem whatsoever when Mr. Bill did the same things.

alvin, I'm tappin' right along with you. And the NSA, apparently.
Michael: thanks and please speak into the potted plant when discussing politics.
carol: thank you and I acccept your recording as evidence you liked the song.
Steve K: very thought-provoking, I appreciate it. If Clinton did this, why was he not called to task on it, I wonder? Could it be he was authorizing foreign surveillance and not domestic wiretapping, as Bush has? Two wrongs certainly do not make a right. If Clinton did it, it was wrong but apparently not an impeachable offense. Bush is flaunting his presidential power and may be sorry for it someday.
YouKnow: nice to meet you and glad I passed the audition...

What's the point in making a parody about a current event, if you haven't bothered to read the facts about the event? This parody would make the reader believe that wiretapping occurred between two people residing in the U.S.. FALSE. This parody says nothing about Al Qaeda, but that is one of the key factors in the whole matter. When the NSA had reason to believe that an INTERNATIONAL call involved an Al Qaeda operative, that call was recorded for later analysis. Not only is this no big deal, but the vast majority of Americans LIKE the idea, because it makes them safer. Come on, ultra-liberal wackos, use the brains God gave you!

Lurker, I am glad you came out with your opinion because unless people like you and me start to have a dialogue and actually understand each other, we are never going to get anywhere in this country. You have a valid point about my parody: domestic calls (i.e., within the US) are not being monitored--as far as we know. I think we can agree that all of the facts have yet to come out about this secret program. If I happen to have a friend in Saudi Arabia, and he happens to be connected somehow to the very large and powerful Bin Laden family, then my calls might be monitored. Do you see anything wrong with that? I certainly do! I think we can also agree that the President has chosen and has admitted publicly to intentionally bypassing the FISA courts, prompting the resignation of one of its judges. We still do not know why the President and this administration do not feel bound by this law. Please enlighten me: where did you get the information about "most Americans like the idea, because it makes them safer"? My final point involves the purpose of parody writing and satire in general: we are trying to make a point and have a few laughs. This often involves exaggeration to the point of caricaturing the opposition. If you don't know this, I feel sorry for you. Well, I'm glad we had this talk. I feel better. How about you?
