“The Battle Hymn of the Republican”

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the war
It brings more military contracts and the drafting of the poor
It lets us build our pipelines so the profits are much more
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

The prisoners that we’ve tortured and whose rights we snatch away
Are just trivial details when there’s oil on the way
And let everyone go and buy an S-U-V today
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

We will lie and we will cheat and we will generally deceive
Tales of W-M-D and propaganda we will weave
We will hold Iraqi oil fields and never ever leave
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

Environment and education matter not at all
If asked some questions without answers we can always stall
‘Cause we spin the news releases and the people are in thrall
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

The old, the poor, the blacks and women we can still control
Give ‘em something with the left hand while the right hand takes the toll
Don’t stop now and don’t look back because we’re really on a roll
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

And now that it’s election time we’ve got some work to do
John Kerry must be seen to be a liar through and through
And never can the people see just how they have been screwed
The truth is trampled on

Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
Glory! Glory! Halliburton!
The truth is trampled on.

The zoo-keeper was astounded to find the zoo’s orangutang sitting quietly perusing a copy of the Bible and a copy of Darwin’s Origin of the Species.

“What are you doing?”, the zookeeper exclaimed.

The animal replied, “I’m trying to figure out as to whether I am my brother’s keeper or my keeper’s brother.”

Democratic & Republican congressmen were arguing over the best way of getting the country out of the Depression. The Democrat said that he proposed an appropriation of $ 100 BILLION to be put into programs to hire the unemployed, fund daycare centers for working families, and build housing for the homeless. No, no, no, shouted the Republican, that’s not the way to do it. Instead Congress should give the very rich a $ 100 BILLION tax cut.

How would that help working people, the Democrat asked. Simply, the Republican answered, once the Rich got the money, they would trickle it down on those under them.

The Democrat thought and then said, well I have the same basic idea but this time let’s have the regular folks piss up.

Bushisms

One of the great things about books is that there is sometimes fantastic pictures in them

I just want you to know that when we’re talking war, we’re really talking peace

I am proud to shake the hand of an Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein

I firmly believe that the death tax is good for people in many walks of life

The truth of the matter is, that if Saddam Hussein were President of the United States, he’d still be in power and the whole world would be better off

Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking of new ways to harm our country, and neither do we

They misunderestimate me

Sarah Palin on sharing the wealth:

“And Alaska — we’re set up, unlike other states in the union, where it’s collectively Alaskans own the resources. So we share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs. … It’s to maximize benefits for Alaskans, not an individual company, not some multinational somewhere, but for Alaskans.”     Now was Sarah Palin running on the Socialist Party ticket?
