    time for a repost of this classic:

    for those without video:

    THE DEMON BARBER OF WALL STREET
    (to the tune of The Ballad of Sweeney Todd)

    Attend the tale of Romney Mitt
    Although he doesn't remember it
    He clipped a classmate one afternoon
    Like some kind of barbarous Vidal Sassoon
    Then sauntered off to English Lit
    Did Romney, Mitt
    The Demon Barber of Wall Street

    He was the life of Stevens Hall
    And quite the cut-up as we recall
    His pranks were funny for everyone
    Who was handsome and rich and a governor's son
    That's Romney
    That's Romney, Mitt
    The Demon Barber of Wall Street

    Swing your scissors wide, Romney
    Try to make him cry
    Always choose
    the victim who's
    the Little Guy

    His favorite cut, the Romney crop
    Cuts everything but the very top
    The one percent of the one percent
    When he said "the people" well, that's what he meant
    Like Robin Hood, 'cept opposite
    That's Romney, Mitt
    The Demon Barber of Wall Street

    Benefits for the poor he cuts
    Regulations galore he cuts
    Unions and jobs, and safety nets
    There is no cut that Mitt Romney regrets

    Tax on capital gain he cuts
    Deals for buddies at Bain he cuts
    Romney he'll slash, Romney will sever
    will Romney ever apologize - not really

    Attend the tale of Romney, Mitt
    The bully in the bully pulpit
    He's got your back like Norman Bates
    And he'd love to talk but the limo awaits

    For Romney,
    for Romney, Mitt
    The Demon Barber of Wall...
    ...Street

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
