Mass. Effect: Retribution (or, Thanks Scott Brown)

March 24th, 2010

A continuation of our “Mass Effect” series, inspired by the video game novel of the same name.


Healthcare and reconciliation has been passed and signed,

But Republicans to their loss are unresigned.

Their anger is so out-of-control they can’t conceal it.

They’ve already started talking about how they plan to repeal it.


Not long ago, they’d crow and crow;

Now, they’re forced to eat that crow.

They thought they had healthcare reform beat.

That reversal makes Dems’ victory all the more sweet.


Thanks, Scott Brown, especially to you:

We couldn’t have done it without your help too.

If you hadn’t won your special election,

There would have been more special deals to prevent Dem defection.


Your victory forced us to move ahead

With a much more direct method instead.

Reconciliation turned out to be a much better way.

So thank you, Scott, for saving the day.


There’s a saying that never gets old:

Revenge is a dish that’s best served cold.

Not that we passed healthcare reform just for retribution,

But that’s a nice side benefit for that Continuing Resolution.

Here’s Senator Dodd on Countdown 3/24/10 agreeing that my earlier post saying that Dems were better off without that 60th vote was right (unfortunately, he doesn’t mention my blog by name).

 

Here’s your theme music for today, Retribution by Biohazard (see the lyrics below, which I think appropriately describe the deceptive GOP attempt to defeat healthcare reform).


Retribution lyrics
Why do you lie, why do you cheat
Why do you try and deceive
Always twisting around what you say
You better change your foolish ways
This world does not need
Always finding new friends to betray
Payback now
Why do you lie, why do you cheat
Why do you try and deceive
Always twisting around what you say
You better change your foolish ways
This world does not need
Always finding new friends to betray
Payback now
 
Gonna get yours
what’s coming to you
Gonna get yours,
It’s the big payback now
See what you’ve done to me you fool,
I payback now
Backstabber, Payback now
 
I can’t find reason to believe
any word you say is true
Always living surrounded by lies
unless it comes from deep within
Honesty’s not for you
Your actions will end in your demise
Payback now
ChorusI entrusted you
and you stabbed me in the back
Trust is what you earn
Tell me that respect I lack
Reason to believe any other word to use
for what you’ve done to me
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
I entrusted you – wrong
And you stabbed me in the back
Trust is wat you earn – fool
Tell me that respect I lack
Reason to belive – lies
Any other word to use
for what you’ve done to me
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
 
Gonna get yours
what’s coming to you
Gonna get yours,
It’s the big payback now
See what you’ve done to me you fool,
I payback now
Backstabber, Payback now
I can’t find reason to believe
any word you say is true
Always living surrounded by lies
unless it comes from deep within
Honesty’s not for you
Your actions will end in your demise
Payback now
 
I entrusted you
and you stabbed me in the back
Trust is what you earn
Tell me that respect I lack
Reason to believe any other word to use
for what you’ve done to me
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
I entrusted you – wrong
And you stabbed me in the back
Trust is wat you earn – fool
Tell me that respect I lack
Reason to belive – lies
Any other word to use
for what you’ve done to me
In the end you’ll be the one to lose
