Reluctantly we let Napolitano check our shoes.
By now it’s clear this exercise is mostly just a ruse.
We tell you now we’ll draw the line when TSA resorts
To checking if there’s anything secreted in our shorts.
Haphazard screening fails the test and maybe we forgive it;
But giving Qaeda 5th Amendment rights? That makes us livid!
Today the White House stages its theatrical events
To demonstrate O has a plan; of course it’s just pretense.
As long as Abdulmutallab is read Miranda rights;
We’ll miss the “ticking bombs” Al Qaeda’s placed on other flights.
And closing Gitmo down is still your terror-fighting plan?
Barack, don’t tell us that you’re doing everything you can.
As long as O keeps hoping that he’ll change
Our existential war on terror’s one we’re doomed to lose.

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
