The Lyrics

When the Obama administration goes after a media target such as a cable news network, they do it properly. They designate a duly appointed White House functionary from the inner circle (such as Anita Dunn) to be the "get Fox News off the air czar" and turn her loose in the accepted media. At the same time, they stir up a frenzy among like-minded senators and congressmen, trotting out the worn-out "fairness doctrine". I have neither czars or Nancy Pelosis. I, moreover, certainly have no desire to see M.S.N.B.C., the New York Times/Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Newsweek forced to cease operatons. I'd lose too much material! ;D
Folks on Fox are dumb as rocks!
They've got no education.
They're as stupid as can be -
Not like our M.S.N.B.C.! (Not like our M.S.N.B.C.!)
O'Reil-ly and Han-ni-ty
Are screwing up the nation!
You won't see stupidity
Ever on M.S.N.B.C.! (Ever on M.S.N.B.C.!)
It's not just enough to report the news,
So we tell all you knotheads what should be your views.
Fox has twice the watchers but we won't care
When our government buddies kick them off the air!
M.S.N.B.C.! (M.S.N.B.C.!)
Chris Matthews is bulldozin'! He'll take them down a peg!
He squeals each time The Chosen - sends a thrill right up his leg!
How we bash, defame, and trash
The Bush administration!
Now we bow obediently
Because we're M.S.N.B.C.! (Because we're M.S.N.B.C!)

Red state goons are evil loons.
Ms. Mitchell called them rednecks,
Then faked her apology
Only on M.S.N.B.C.! (Only on M.S.N.B.C.!)
C.N.N.? We killed them, friend!
Our boss says Fox is dead next.
We'll get our monopoly
'Cause we are M.S.N.B.C.! ('Cause we are M.S.N.B.C.!)
When Olbermann goes on his famous rants
He can make all us liberals pee in our pants.
Like all our good friends at the New York Times
We devote countless hours to Bush-Cheney crimes!
M.S.N.B.C.! (M.S.N.B.C.!)
If you like "Scarbro's" pacin' - you'll soon have cause to sing.
Our hero Alan Grayson - may be waiting in the wing!
Franken's Air sure went nowhere,
Unlike them we won't be vexed.
We're here for eternity!
Get used to M.S.N.B.C.! (Get used to M.S.N.B.C.!)

I've got to go - Olbermann is on! ;D

I have given a name to all these political parodies, I call them either Parolitical or Satilical works of art. This one being NO exception! ;-) 5's Excellent Job OMR! ;-D

Don't have cable, so I guess I'm lucky. My cousin lets me know what the networks are up to. Amazing that the left is so disturbed about being crowded out of the old line technology (radio), when they control broadcast and most of cable TV news.

Thanks all. I don't consider myself a political satire artist...I'm just the "Sahl" of the earth (Am I "Mort"-ified!). ;D

Great Olb-mann Ribbing. In the new spirit of bipartisanship, I've just finished a pair: Keith and Bill.

Yep, OMR, you need to go .... on writing! Now that makes a triple-entendre. Triple fives!
