The Ballad of Scooter

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments

In answer to the question "Did Scooter Libby deserve to be convicted?"

Darth Cheney pondered, what to do?
Joe Wilson’s information’s true.
How shall we conjure up some doubt
To spin this, lest the truth get out?

Those sixteen words we had to use
“Saddam seeks nukes” we did accuse.
To agitate the clueless rabble
Inspiring echo chamber babble

So Rush and Sean can stir the pot
And sell the hatred while it’s hot
A war for safety, not for oil
Joe Wilson will undo our toil

His wife’s a spy, now who’d of thunk it?
His Niger trip was just a junket.
A boondoggle she sent him on
Get Judith Miller on the phone!

“Yessir”, said Scooter, “Novak too”
They’ll help us out, they always do.
The rogues, they plotted and conspired,
A spy exposed, a front retired.

Off to war the empire went
Perched on a lie, our President,
To spare Rove, designated Scooter
Fall guy, in the place of Shooter
