The Lyrics

Bush's nomination of John Bolton for the post of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is now apparently dead in the water after losing key support of several Republican senators over allegations of Bolton's abusive behavior towards past subordinates
(instrumental intro)

Bolton's critics thought of him as brazen scum;
But he thinks he'll shout them all away.
His past blunders hit him; really had a cow.
Post he's chasing after, now D.O.A.

Canned nomination...
Canned nomina-a-tion...
John Bolton's mistake:
This creep kept bera-a-a-a-a-a-ting.

Lies he'd sell you; how sleazy he is, like W.
That's how right wing smarm shields Shrub's nominee.
Had only cursory words for his spotlight.
What was he thinking about? How light his fight might be?

Canned nomination...
Canned nomina-a-tion...
John Bolton's mistakes...
This creep kept bera-a-a-a-a-a-ting.

And tomorrow, his fight may not be weathered.
He can't stop it; his votes going away.
So he'll try to keep on telling lies right now.
It's now quite clear: he's...
Bizarre, and right-wing crazed.
Bizarre, and right-wing crazed.
Bizarre, and right-wing crazed.
Bizarre, and right-wing crazed.
