The Lyrics

George W. Bush's ratings are low, because "what has he done for us lately?" This parody recalls some surprising successes since 2000, twisting http://www.guntheranderson.com/v/itaintne.htm lyrics.
It ain't undeniably so --
Bad news on TV, radio.
The stings that they groove on, when bloggin' at MoveOn,
Just ain't verifiably so.

They dubbed Dubya dumb, but surprise!
Jim Baker to Florida flies;
To stop Al Gore's fudges, persuades high-court judges
To void vote recounters' surmise.

Before Dubya's swearing-in day,
Recession was well on its way.
He fought it with tax cuts, and those Evil-Ax nuts
Learned Great Satan still could hold sway.

On Schlickmeister's watch, A. Q. Khan
Sold nuke secrets hither and yon.
He made a good living by generous giving
Until Dubya's snoops foiled his con.

Then Dubya, they wrote, didn't mind
That government schools had declined.
In concert with Teddy, he soon made them ready,
Enacting No Child Left Behind.

They deemed Dubya deaf to the cries
Of AIDS-fearing females and guys.
But who spent our billions for Africa's millions?
'twas not Bill or Hill in disguise!

They billed Dubya blind to the plight
Of rare-disease patients who might
Be cured by new stem-cells; urged take first from themselves,
'cause he stood for fetal birthright.

Cons'tution's thrived two hundred years
Through forefathers' blood, sweat and tears.
Now some call it livin'; while others, a given
That's goin' to shine thousand years.

Al Gore screamed, "He played on our fears!"
So now an Apocalypse nears,
'gainst men whose religion has warped their world-vision
With no infidels, Jews or queers.

Since Dubya first started the Surge,
Top Democrats all played a dirge.
For Reid and Pelosi, defeat would be rosy;
Control of three branches they'd merge.

Mocked Dubya's crass taste, not elite
Ne'er could leaders East or West greet.
But new man Sarkozy is suddenly cozy,
For al-Qaeda clearly is beat.

Now Dubya must face without fear
Kim, Hugo, Mahmoud, Vladimir;
Make clear that our schism is their Socialism.
Democracy's voice they must hear!
If you sing this in public and people drop money, keep it; but drop a note to bjmitchel@att.net .

It is not clear that " al-Qaeda clearly is beat," but this parody does an excellent job of exposing media double standards. With outstanding rhyming as well.

Well crafted job, but I believe he is both imbecilic and slow. Probably the worst pres. we've ever had. Sorry.
