'Twas the Night Before Shutdown

I had to share this bedtime rhyme from blogger Dusty Schluterman at CoolHandSchlute.  Given the Left’s reaction to Senator Cruz reading Dr. Seuss to his adorable girls during his 21 hour speech from the floor, they probably won’t appreciate this literary work either.


‘Twas the night before Shutdown, when all through the nation
Not a citizen was happy, not this occasion;
ACA Waivers hung by the Congress with care,
In hopes that the Teamsters would not despair;
Government staffers, nestled snug in their beds,
While visions of exemptions danced in their heads,
And Michelle in her Dior, and I in my golf shirt,
Had just laughed ourselves silly at Republican butthurt–
When out in the Senate, there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the back nine to see what was the matter.
Away to the Treasury I flew like a flash,
Tore open the coffers and spread ’round the cash.
The moon on the breast of a nation near fallen,
Gave luster to lobbyists, who from Soros, came callin’;
When what to my progressive gaze should appear,
But a miniature sleigh and a few RINOdeer,
With a driver who made right wing ears bleed,
I knew that it must be Senator Reid.
Like turncoats and buzzards, the moderates came,
And he cursed, and shouted, and call’d them by name:
“Now! Ayotte, now! Blunt, now! Chambliss and Coburn,
On! Graham, on! McCain, on! McConnell and Cornyn;

To hell with The People! Let Democracy fall!

I’ll cause this Shutdown and then blame you all!
