Sunday Summer Sing-Along - Part One
We will begin with a song about the Massachusetts Budget Battle, called DiMasi's Siren Song, sung to the tune of the Habernara in Bizet's opera Carmen:
DiMasi took the Speaker’s Chair
Kicked Out Old Leaders He Found Staaaanding There
Brought In Progressives As His Team
So They Could All Pursue their Noble Dream…
“Let’s Get That Cash Right Out of Hock
And Spread Around on Legislaaaaative Schlock!
How Can A Blue State Still Survive
Upon A Tax Rate Less Than Five-Point-Five?"
"We’ll Spend It All, To Show We Care,
To Debt We’ll Just Pile On Another Layer!
A Balanced Budget? Don’t You See…
Those Cuts Will All Come From
Next Week: Impeach Bush!
