Jindal Bells



Another guest post by our friend David Garber. Please read more about him at the end of this post.


It's never too soon to start getting into the festive, holiday, cheery mood when you're a Republican.

It's never too soon to start getting into the festive, holiday, cheery mood when you're a Republican. They're spreading their sequester cheer already with the GOP's favorite crooner, Bobby Jindal, singing his new single, "Jindal Bells."

Dashing through the states
In a multi-mission sleigh
taking away our votes
Laughing all the way
Severing public aid
ruining peoples lives
What fun it is to laugh and sing
and slap each other "high fives."

Oh, bungled bills, bungled bills
Bungled every day
Whatever we trusted Congress to do
they screwed up every way.
Unemployment, women's rights
and immigration too,
Oh, what fun to ruin our lives
Legislating directly against you.

A year or so ago
they took us for a ride
The 2011 budget bill
That makes us want to hide.
The sequester is most lean and lank
Misfortune seems its lot
We're heading into a concocted bind
That's putting us in a spot.

Oh, bungled bills, bungled bills
bungled all the way
Boehner, McConnell, and Mr. Cantor
What more is there to say?
Bungled bills, bungled biils
bungled all the way
Now we have to survive some cuts
because they refuse to play.

Bungled bills, Bungled bills
Bungle every way
The GOP and it's leadership
caused this awful fray.
Now they try to blame,
All but them, they say
Oh, what fun it is to hope
the GOP will fade away

Bungled Bills, bungled bills
bungled all the way.
now we see the GOP
And pray they go away. Hey!

Sequester cheers, everyone!
