The Republican Party and the extreme right wing are channeling The Beatles, circa 1968.
Bear with me.
GOP right wingnuts like Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is calling for militia state of mind real Americans to consider themselves armed and dangerous in defense of President Barack Obama’s health care agenda.
Former GOP House leader Newt (what’s a newt?) Gingrich is advocating dissent in the ranks.
Fox News’ totally insane Minister of Propaganda Glenn (Goebbels) Beck showed footage of 1930s Nazis on Parade in Berlin when talking about Obama’s agenda saying whacko things like “we’ve seen this act before.”
Since former VP Dick Cheney gnarled on CNN a few weeks back that the country is less safe with Obama at the helm, the lunatics have been trying to run the asylum.
They’re advocating revolution. You say you want a revolution? Well, you know, we all want to change the world, John Lennon wrote.
The right wing doesn’t want to change the world — in fact that’s what they fear the most from Obama. They want it to be like it was — or like they thought it was under Reagan. Hell, make that Eusenhower.
When everyone was safe and sane and so secure.
When no one had to worry about sex-crazed teenagers because everyone practiced abstinence. You know, like Bristol Palin.
“Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right,” The Beatles’ “Revolution” concluded.
Radical conservatives want to put the emphasis on the words “all right” alright.
What’s rallying the troops is the belief that Obama wants to take away Americans’ guns (because they cling to them, no doubt.) So they’re stockpiling weapons because they’ll fight for their right to bear arms.
The radical right should put out a song in the style of “We Are The World” where they can all sing in perfect harmony another Beatles classic: “Happiness is a Warm Gun.”
Don’t stop there — make it an album. Here are some other Beatles songs they can cover:
1. John McCain’s response to picking Sarah Palin as a running mate. The song: “I Should Have Known Better.”
2. Someone can mimic President Obama who is so omnipresent these days the Beatles song title that best covers this would be “Here, There and Everywhere.”
3. The still confused George W. Bush singing “Eight Days a Week.”
4. Dick Cheney shows off his chops with “Mean Mr. Mustard” and “Don’t Bother Me”
5. Any corporate exec the Republicans want to protect can easily cover “Help!”
6. Former GM CEO Richard Wagoner will contribute with “Drive My Car.”
7. GOP House members sing their response to any bill Obama proposes with “No Reply.”
8. The forever wrapped up in herself Sarah Palin can cover George Harrison’s “I Me Mine.”
9. All the “we’re not gay” GOP lawmakers caught in men’s room bath stalls or e-mailing male pages homoerotic thoughts, there’s always “I Wanna Be Your Man”
10. For the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele, there’s “Nowhere Man.”
Remember, if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Lim-bow, you ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow….
