Obama Shindig Back for a Second Season

According to retiring Arkansas Governor Marion Berry, a group of worried Democrats mentioned to President Obama last week that there are signs that the 2010 mid-term elections may be as bad or worse for Democrats than in 1994, when Bill Clinton was president:

“The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me,’” Berry told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.”("Top Democrats at war - with each other").

In honor of the president’s inspiring self-confidence, a songwriting correspondent of DU, spending too much time contemplating the Democrat-Obama dialogue, has forwarded the following.


(Nasally, with plaintive oboe, to the melody of Sonny & Cher’s, “I Got You Babe”)

THEM: They say it’s bad, just like 'ninety-four
That Scott Brown broom gonna sweep us out the door
HIM: Let me be clear, this shall not be,
Cuz you got me, and baby. . . You GOT ME

THEM: You?
HIM: You got
ME babe
You got
ME babe

THEM: They say our chance has come and gone
Our trans-for-ma-tive moment has been blown
HIM: Well, maybe you’re all on the ropes
But I am still the fountain of all hopes

THEM, You?
HIM: You got ME babe
You got ME babe

THEM: We'll face voters in the fall
HIM: And I'm still, The All in All
THEM: And these town halls! They're shoutin' us down!
HIM: The world's gonna change, becuz I'm arou-how-how-hound!

THEM: The polls say all our support is gone
The health care thing, that really turned out wrong
HIM: Just follow me, to my mountaintop
I have decreed that I shall never flop!

BOTH: You got ME babe
You got ME babe

HIM: I got you to vote for me
THEM: We lost bills we wrote for you
HIM: I got Ashton, and Demi!
THEM: We got Reid and Pelosi!
HIM: Oprah wants to kiss my cheek . . .
THEM: Dems resigning every week!
HIM: I'm in charge, and I won't let go
THEM: You can’t even close Gitmo!

BOTH: You got ME babe
You got ME babe
You got ME babe

A Pelosi O'Bama duet, perhaps?? I'd buy that for a dollar.
