The Lyrics

There has been much to cringe about in the the current debt ceiling debate. One proposal makes my blood run cold. Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, and the President himself through Chief of Staff William Daley have advocated the formation of a "Super Congress" or super commission which will make the budget proposals without discussion or amendments and be subject to an up or down vote only! Christmas In July congratulates our leaders. This idea turns our financial crisis into a Constitutional crisis and shameless power grab! ;D



We can't get our debt ceiling raised.
Time for a new approach.
What will we do? You'll be amazed.
On your rights we'll encroach.
A Super Congress is the key,
Six top guns from each par-ty.
'Though it's not done legally,
Time for a new approach.

All-powerful new commission!
All the debt problems we'll fix.
Why do we break with tradition?
Keep Tea Party out of the mix!

A small elite group's more refined.
We're gonna stretch the rules.
The voters won't care, much less mind.
They're just a bunch of fools.
A Super Congress - real good vibe.
With Big O. they can joke and jibe.
There'll be far less folks to bribe -
Top elephants and mules!

We'll be the new institution.
We'll have the final confab.
We'll say "Screw the Constitution!"
We're off on a big power grab.

The nation's finance we'll direct.
We'll have the power now.
'Though for this you did not elect,
You won't care anyhow.
With Big O. we will rule the day.
All of us will have our way.
We don't care what you may say.
Nothing's a sacred cow.

So our Super Congress will rule the land.
You must do what we now have planned.
Your new rulers - Super Congress!



As the Obama administration has proudly stated "We never let a crisis go to waste!" ;D

I don't claim to understand what's happening over there but you sure make it sound like some kind of economical martial law is coming. One observation though, "six top guns from each party" would make twelve + O himself, right? Same numbers as Jesus and the Disciples, same numbers as King Arthur and the Knights of the round table, I'm sure there are parody ideas in those numbers. Or maybe like this: "On the first day of August my congress brought to me /...../ On the second day of August my congress brought to me." Just some ideas from the top of my head...

Oh sorry, I thought this parody was about members of Congress becoming super heroes! My bad ;)

I've heard some commentators on the radio say that President Obama could take some sort of extra-legal measures to deal with the crisis, and cite President Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War. What next? Invade South Carolina?

We currently have a Stupor Duper Congress
