The Ballad of Joe Walsh (Mr. Cool)

Rep. Joe Walsh speaking.

Poor Joey you have indigestion

How dare a constituent question

When all of us know

The wisdom of Joe

Goes as deep as a housefly’s erection

As child supporter you’re deadbeat

As genius you’re locked in a dead heat

With Herman and Rick

You all don’t know dick

Which is right-wing conservative red meat


You stiff your ex-wife and three kids

(Though you drag down two hundred thou per)

You weasel that you’re on the skids

You’ve nothing for them or for her

So the Family Research Council folk

 “support of the family” award

Goes to you in some sick right-wing joke

Hallelujah, amen, praise The Lord


Your screaming should be in a sound booth

You fume and you shout when around truth

You flail and you spit

You’re funny as shit

You really belong in a clown suit

You’re fat Grover Norquist’s pet monkey

You’re just one more neo-con donkey

You’re lint to be brushed

You’re waste to be flushed

Just like every dumb Koch Brothers flunky

  1. A woman who went to high school with my husband is a huge fan of Rep. Walsh. It’s the most perplexing thing. If I were a confrontational sort, I would simply ask her how she can overlook is raging hypocrisy and his assholish behavior. I don’t bother asking because I’m sure she has a readymade excuse. And it would prompt me to tell her how stupid I think she is so I follow the rule that says if you don’t have something nice to say, ect.

    As it is, I see her positive comments about him on Facebook and think that this is one fucked up world we’re living in.

  2. Brilliant–and dead on!! I couldn’t restrain myself from actually calling his office in D.C. the other day after I saw the video on AlterNet and logging in a comment. This guy may actually be the biggest ass in Congress–and God knows, that’s saying something.

  3. I think your Ballads should be in the “Candidate Description” books we get every election cycle.
    You are now my number 1 source for candidate bios.

  4. You are both inspired and inspiring. I just can’t wait for the next one. Please tell me you are going to “continue” through the ranks of the contenders, or maybe it would better said, the pretenders.
