Talking Heads (no, not the band)


With apologies to St. Janis of Port Arthur, a reworking of “Mercedes Benz”:

Oh Lord, won’t you save me from these talking heads?
They’re hurting our nation, it just never ends
Tom Friedman, Krauthammer, Bill Kristol and friends,
So Lord, won’t you save me from these talking heads?

Oh Lord, won’t you take them off of my TV?
Lying for dollars they’re trying to kill me.
I work hard providing each day well past three
So oh Lord, won’t you take them off of my TV?

Oh Lord, won’t you bring some reporters to town
I’m counting on you, Lord, please don’t let me down
Prove that you love me and silence these clowns
Oh, Lord, won’t bring some reporters to town

Oh Lord, won’t you save me from these talking heads?
Ross Douthat, Dave Gregory, Dave Brooks, and their friends,
Worked hard all my lifetime, these clowns ain’t my friends,
So Lord, won’t you save me from these talking heads?

*minor edit from “the” to “these” at the suggestion of Mrs. Polly. And another from Brother Shotgun of Sweet Reason.

This is not my beautiful house!

Many moons ago in the blogosphere there was a minor writer with the moniker “Bryan S.” who flew the flag of “Arguing with Signposts.” His politics were vaguely conservative, warblogger, humorist, cynic, libertarian. In short, he screwed all that up. So, you might say this is my attempt to set that stuff straight. The flag is flying again. But we’ve set a course that’s at odds with the haze of the last eight years. Onward!
