God Help America

I like the Raging Grannies’ rationale for their presentation: “grandmothers are a core American value, as patriotic as mom and apple pie,” which links elderly ladies who bake cookies with dissent, free speech, and antiwar protest. Hey, Nancy “Donut-Hole” Johnson gets a pass on taking money from Abramoff and DeLay and on rubberstamping every nasty Bush policy that comes down the pike on account of her grandmotherliness, so let’s associate this positive trait with the Bill of Rights.

And here’s their anthem, sung to the tune of “God Bless America”:

GOD HELP AMERICA,
WE NEED YOU BAD!
’CAUSE OUR LEADERS
ARE CHEATERS
AND THEY’RE MAKING THE WORLD REALLY MAD.
CLIMBING MOUNTAINS,
CROSSING OCEANS
AND INVADING FOREIGN SOIL...
GOD HELP AMERICA,
NO BLOOD FOR OIL!
GOD FORGIVE AMERICA,
NO BLOOD FOR OIL!

Ya gotta love 'em. These grannies have made a major political statement. Just wish they'd follow up and get arrested again so they stay in the news.
