Harry Reid: The Grinch Who Stole the War on Christmas?
The Who's Whos down in Congress
Liked Christmas a lot
But Senator Reid
Sen. Reid hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason
It could be his earmarks weren't screwed on just right
It could be, perhaps, that his race was too tight
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May be that the vote calendar's one size too small.
Whatever the reason
The break was delayed
He stood there on Christmas Eve (Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve) and inveighed
"Mr. Kyl," he retorted, "I know what it is
Do not tell me, 'It's Christmas! So halt all the biz!'
Where was your indignation, you timing-adjuster
In the course of Sen. Sanders's long filibuster?"
"I'm a Christian as well, sir," he snarled with a sneer. "Tomorrow ain't Christmas!
It's not even near!" Then he growled, with his Reid fingers nervously drumming, "You'd
Best find a new way to stop START from coming!"
Tomorrow, he knew...
Without pausing to gloat
Kyl, Demint, and the gang who were in the same boat
Would all rush to the floor and they'd vote! Vote! Vote! Vote! At least that's what he hoped!
Oh the votes! Votes! Votes! Votes! Votes! Votes! Votes!
Then the Who's Whos would dash to their planes in a flurry
Who knew what they'd voted? There was too much hurry!
So much for the thinking -- now each grabbed a fork
For the Senate's true Christmas -- the Carving of Pork.
