The Lyrics

Both Demoncrats and Repugnicans say stupid things. But while the Demoncrats have each other's backs, the Repugnicans bite each other's backs. That's why the Democrats generally win elections.
From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore,
This country is in trouble, it can't spend any more.
Obama's tall and handsome
Though he can't govern at all,
But his only competition
Are the Tampa Cannibals.

Oh, listen to Rush Limbaugh
He's joined the rulin' class
Takin' Akin to the woodshed
And biting out his a**
They back-stab their pro-lifers
And on spending cuts they stall
Paul Ryan will be eaten
By the Tampa Cannibals!

Abortion is epidemic,
Illegals are here to stay,
Women lust for women
And half the men are gay.
The welfare state is rampant
As businesses barely crawl,
But they don't like social issues,
Those Tampa Cannibals.


They lash out at Obama
For spending recklessly,
But they act just like the Black Sox
Of baseball history.
Iran wants nuclear weapons,
And Syria just might fall.
But don't expect salvation from
The Tampa Cannibals.


When Mitt and Paul conceded one cold November day,
'Cause they'd betrayed their platform, you could hear all the people say,
“Our country is in misery, we don't have long at all.
They've squandered this election by being cannibals!”

Oh, listen to Rush Limbaugh
He's joined the rulin' class
Takin' Akin to the woodshed
And biting out his a**
When victory's almost certain,
They panic one and all,
And they squander the election
By being cannibals!

Heh heh - you've certainly summed up the State of the Union very well, both the tragic, the comedic and the theatre of the absurd. Well done.
