Nothing much has changed since I wrote this last Christmas:

(Sung to the tune of The Christmas Song:)

Unemployment lines are stretching now,
Job security is gone.
As to Iraq and the things our troops lack --
These issues all bring on a yawn

“Cause they’re never wrong,
These Bushies and their sycophants.
Their agenda is quite clear:
Working families don’t rate in their scheme,
They’ll find it hard to eat next year.

They thought that Bushie was their guy,
He told them fear the conflagration in the sky.
He said it’s Clinton’s fault that many died,
And it’s your duty now as citizens to buy.

And so he offered you this simple phrase:
“To feed the rich will help the poor.”
You bought it, he won, and now wait for the dun --
Happy goodbye, two thousand four.

So here's this year's holiday tune, courtesy of the Bush administration.
(Sung to the tune of It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas:)

It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Everywhere you go,
Prosecutors are making lists
Of Libbys and Roves and Frists
And more Rethugs fear Scanlon's set to blow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Thriftmas
'Specially for the poor,
'Cause the Congress is cutting back on the benefits they lack
To finance the war.

Homes without silt and a city rebuilt
New Orleans wants to know when,
Food for the tykes and a simple wage hike
Is the wish of all working men,
And Moms and Dads can hardly wait for their boys to come home again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Giftmas
Only for the rich.
As Republicans cut their tax, their income will soar to max,
But only to make more jobs, now that's the pitch.
It's beginning to look a lot like Switchmas,
When Dubya's plans all flop
And he has no true defense he goes on the Swift offense
So his negs will drop,
He's the spinning top.
