The Republican party is hellbent not only on ruinous policy but also on an election campaign that daily drags our politics further into absurdity. As an activist who has worked against the extremists for many years and written about their policies and politics in many forums, I find myself seeing logic more and more in using alternate forms to stand against them. With a nod to the many activist traditions that have joined with the people over the years (and centuries), I have just written and posted an angry though sarcastic song. It has a video, too, which does not feature the overexposed Mr. Gingrich's likeness; rather, it simply shows bleak child-labor photos from the old-days USA that the GOP so worships. I hope others will consider it worth viewing, not least because Gingrich and his associates see things like child labor as solutions. (It's on youtube at: http://bit.ly/wxiwGn .). Lyrics follow.

"We'll be cheating about our STDs, cheating on those SATs-
Schools and healthcare? No one needs. The funding will be moot.
'Cause with Newt elected king, cocktail drugs'll be the loot.
.....With Newt, crowned brute, he'd ban ethics, jail the truth.
Hail Newt, we're falling through --wouldn't have anything left to lose.

Cheated on his 1st wife with his 2nd wife,
Cheated on the 2nd with the 3rd.
Found a wife who looks like John Mccain's,
Just so he can lose to Obama the same.
.....Yeah Newt, your health care's shrewd: when a spouse gets sick, give them the boot.
Hey Newt, we're falling through --wouldn't have anything left to lose.

Not a food-stamp president, not for urban residents.
Wants to farm kids as slaves ...build character --and early graves.
He's pious, just like a scrooge.
    Errand-boy for right-wing fears,
Bomb Iran within a year.
He'd sell Detroit to Mao and Hu.
.....Hey Newt, claw and tooth, demagoguing so astute.
Hail Newt, resolute, what's not tied down he'll pollute.
.....Hey Newt, the uncouth, shut the gov'ment once, now he's back to chop its roots.
Ciao Newt, adieu. Tax breaks for your guns --not for you. 

We'd be cheated on with total ease, cheated by our bosses' greed,
cheated out of nurseries, get cheated on our W3s,
cheated by the groceries --cheated, jobs gone overseas ...nothing left to lose."
