"The Bush Legacy: War on the Press, Continued"

I said earlier I'd try to track when Alterman and Zornick posted the next part of their series. Part two is now up.

Part one is here, if you missed it.

[Added] Also of interest: Alterman's Refs, Worked (Redux).

A few of us in Chicago offer our musical tribute to W's "legacy." We hope you enjoy the video and the song. Feel free to do with it as you please.

Well, for eight long years we've been payin' your rent
But now your lease done run
And all our money's been spent
So pack up your bags
And take a last look around
At how you drove a great nation straight into the ground

And don't let the door
Hit you in the ass on the way out
Don't bother with the goodbyes
Just make sure that you stay out
There ain't no need to call
No need to write
We don't even need you to turn out the light
Just crawl back to Crawford, brother
Promise that you'll leave us alone

Every step of the way, your story's been the same
Just cruisin' through the world
On your daddy's name
You had the oilmen friends
You had the Skull and Bones
But it never would have happened if your name was Jones


Slam dunk, privatize, deregulate
Tax cuts, trickle down
The politics of hate
Flag pin, waterboard
Intelligent design
You were handed your throne by just five of the nine

Thanks for this, Matt. I've bumped it, if you haven't already noticed.

I never thought I could hear don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out rendered euphoniously, let alone in harmony, but you've managed handily.

May "Crawl Back To Crawford" be on 100 million pairs of lips by January 19th. (I trust you've got something new planned for Inauguration Day.)
