The Lyrics

(instrumental opening)

You have to learn to pace the hells.
Sequester.
It will hurt everybody else.
Sequester.
You only said Obama was
no good.
But you have come to a place
where they only thing you feel
is President in your face
and he'll beat you with
sequester!

You used to call me paranoid.
Sequester.
But now you nuts cannot avoid
sequester.
You let the Teabags into your crusade.
Now here you are with bad faith
and your Ay-n Rand advice!
You have bad tan on your face
and you set up the sequester!

All screwed up and no place to go!
Psycho right-wing, what do you know?
You think you'll cut Channel 13?
Big Bird beat Mitt.
What does it mean?

I'll tell you what it means...
It means you screwed up.

Sequester!

You're beyond help, in Twilight Zone!
Sequester!
You set it up, it's all your own.
Sequester!

I'm sure you have some fascist rationale.
But here you are, in '13.
Four more years, Obama's got.
Nowhere to look, but mirror
and you've got this big
sequester!

(instrumental break)

Bad write-up in Time magazine.
People hate you.
What does it mean?

(instrumental break)

Sequester!

I'm sure you have some fascist rationale.
Now here you are with bad faith
and your Ay-n Rand advice!
You have bad tan on your face
and you set up the sequester!

Sequester!

Sequester!

Cave in on
sequester!

Michael - The fact that our political views are often completely at odds will never lessen my appreciation (and enjoyment) of your work. Isn't it somewhat spooky that Rand is Ayn's last name and Paul's first name? ;D

As flawed as the sequester might be, it seems clearly preferable to continuing to kick the can down the road, so I don’t have a problem with the sequester. But who is responsible for proposing the concept? According to Bob Woodward (not exactly the Tea Party type), the idea originated in the White House and was approved by President Obama before it was proposed to the Senate. So now the President is complaining about the unfairness of a concept that he has approved from its inception.

And MP is giving the credit for this idea to Republicans and distorting it into blame. Wow!

And Ayn R. is an anagram of Ryan, one of the "philosopher"'s acolytes.

The regime will start by cutting the few visible government programs that actually benefit the public at large. The vast majority of totally wasteful and unconstitutional spending will go on undisturbed, as usual.

This of course doesn't mean that I won't offer a contrary response by Friday at the latest. ;D

John J, the sequester was Boehner's idea. He said he got 98 percent of what he wanted. And he's going to get 100 percent of the blame. And the last commenter has as much right to call himself "constitution guy" as Brian Cashman has to call himself a "wounded warrior." In case you weren't paying attention, moron, Bush caused the mess with his 1 percenters' tax cut and his war that he lied us into. Blaming "liberals" for the economic mess is like blaming baseball fans for a team's loss: They were there, but there was nothing they could do to cause it. (And I don't want to hear any Cub fan mention Steve Bartman.)
