After this November’s election results, it might seem a bit greedy to expect anything else from Santa but he is a generous ol’ soul. With that in mind, the thought arose that it might grease the wheels with Santa if a parody song was offered as a gift to our wonderful PlanetPOV members and readers.
So, with all apologies to Nat King Cole, here is an update of The Christmas Song.
(NOT) THE CHRISTMAS SONG – 2012
Wingnuts roasting on a Boehner fire
Tax cuts slipping in the polls.
Old time peril being sung by a choir
And Kochs dressed up like corporate ‘ho’s.
Everybody knows a turkey ran ‘gainst Pres’dent O
Helped to sink the Repub Right
Tiny minds with foil hats all aglow
Have found it hard to sleep with spite.
They know Obama’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toil and good deeds on his plate
And every Murdoch rag’s gonna spy
To see if most folks really know how they lie.
And so we wish the best of holidays
To those around The Planet too
Although it’s been blogged many times
Many ways, Merry Christmas to you!
Kalima, KQuark, Bito and I send our sincere and heartfelt wishes for the happiest of holidays and a wonderful New Year to all of our Planeteers who make this site Christmas for us every day of the year!
