  •  I'm no songwriter... (4.00)
    But I keep humming to myself, Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire...

    Arrogant lips are unsuited to a fool-- how much worse lying lips to a ruler - Proverbs 17:7

    •  So was I! (4.00)
      Like blogger minds, I suppose!
    •  Surely someone can write that.. (4.00)
      I'm no poet either but I would love to see the full song, Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire,
      Fitz is nipping at his toes???

      Someone can do this...

      •  Just keep going, You can do it. (none)

        Down, by God, but not out.

      •  manicprogressive had a good one (4.00)
        Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire
        Chimpy nipping at the blow
        worthless alibis being sung by the choir
        And folks dressed up in prison clothes

        Everybody knows frog-marching and some
        resignations help to make the season bright
        Happy Kossacks with their eyes all aglow
        Will find it hard to sleep tonight

        They know that Fitzie's on his way
        He's got indictments and lots of charges on his sleigh
        And every mother's child is gonna spy
        To see if GOPigs really know how to fly

        And so I'm offering this simple phrase
        To kids from one to ninety-two
        Although it's been said many times, many ways
        Merry Fitzmas
        Merry Fitzmas
        Merry Fitzmas to you

        •  Slight changes for singability (4.00)
          Sorry, I can't help but tinker with meter, scan, and those other things that make for a good lyric:

          The Fitzmas Song (with apologies to Mel Torme)

          Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire
          Chimpy nipping at the blow
          useless alibis being sung by the choir
          As folks try on their prison clothes

          Everybody knows frog-marching some deserving crook
          helps to make the season bright.
          Happy Kossacks with their eyes all-aglow
          Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

          They know that Fitzie's on his way
          With a lot of charges and indictments on his sleigh
          And every mother's child is gonna spy
          To see if GOPigs really know how to fly

          And so I'm offering this simple phrase
          To kids from one to ninety-two
          Although it's been said many times, many ways
          Merry Fitzmas

          Merry Fitzmas to you

        •  Here's my tinkered version (3.66)
          "The Fitzmas Song"
          With apologies to Nat King Cole

          Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire
          Chimpy nipping at the blow
          shameless alibis being sung by their choir
          And Rethugs trying on new prison clothes

          Everybody knows frog-marching with a photo-op
          help to make the season bright
          Happy Kossacks with their hopes now aglow
          Will find it hard to sleep tonight

          They know that Fitzie's on his way
          He's got indictments, loads of charges on his sleigh
          And every democrat, can now rely
          on proof that GOPigs really know how to lie

          And so I'm offering this simple phrase
          To Dems from one to ninety-two
          Although it's been said many times, many ways
          Merry Fitzmas
          Merry Fitzmas
          Merry Fitzmas to you

          •  This is much better than mine! (none)
            I give it a perfect ten!

            The world is weary of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians.

          •  Why Torme and not Cole? (none)
            Because it's the lyrics we're messing with, not the tune.

            More messing (not much) -- I'll start with the current version

            "The Fitzmas Song"
            With apologies to Mel Torme (and Nat Cole)

            Rove's nuts roasting on an open fire
            Chimpy nipping at the blow
            lame alibis being spun by the choir
            And Rethugs trying on new prison clothes

            Everybody knows frog-marching with a photo-op
            help to make the season bright
            Happy Kossacks with their hopes now aglow
            Will find it hard to sleep tonight

            They know that Fitzie's on his way
            He's got loads of charges and indictments on his sleigh
            And every democrat, can now rely
            on proving GOPigs really know how to lie

            And so I'm offering this simple phrase
            To Dems from one to ninety-two
            Although it's been said many times, many ways
            Merry Fitzmas
            Merry Fitzmas
            Merry Fitzmas to you
