An Inauguration Anthem (From 'The Pirates of DC')

I think that William Schrenk Gilbert would approve, but that’s just me.

Obama:
I am the very model of a modern US president,
A sacred incarnation, my selection was no accident,
‘A Deo rex, a rege lex’: now I am the liberal’s voice,
To silence and/or seduce opponents, to deny their cause and choice.

I’m glad to have my worshipers located in the media,
Edit our hist’ry and traditions just like Wikipedia,
Alter things like flags and Seals although laws exist ‘gainst such,
But I belong to the Left: details like that don’t bother much

Chorus of Kennedy, Franken, Dodd, ACORN:
But we all belong to the Left; law-breaking doesn’t bother us
But we all belong to the Left; hypocrisy don’t bother us
But we all belong to the Left; nothing ever-ever bothers us.

Obama:
And now I want to reinvent the US Constitution
Compare myself to Jesus Christ, and FDR, and Abe Lincoln
All children sing their praises for me and put them in a jingle,
And for adults like Chris Matthews, I just make their legs tingle.

Chorus of MSM talk-show hosts
All children will sing his praises then and put them in a jingle,
And every time he makes a speech, he’ll just make our legs tingle.

Obama:
In fact when I put VP Biden’s gaffe-o-matic out of sight
When I can tell at glance a Grand Dragon from the Rev. Wright
When I have learnt the difference between ‘45’ ,‘161’
When I can dig my ‘hope and change’ ‘neath all of the Clintonians
Events really matter not; fault will not be found in us,
If someone performs poorly, I’ll just throw them down under the bus
Or when our policies run this great country into the ground,
We’ll point and blame that bad George Bush; forget that he is not around

Chorus: Pelosi, Reid, Hollywood Celebrities

We’ll point and blame that bad George Bush; forget that he is not around
We’ll point and flame that bad George Bush; forget that he is not around
We’ll point and curse that bad George Bush; forget that he is, he is not around

Obama:
In the Chicagoan ‘poly-tick’ method I’m up to date
But I can’t tell you at a whim the correct number of US states
One fact, however, supercedes: I’m the current White House res’dent
And I’m the very model of a modern US President!
