August Revolting

During the August Congressional recess, Democrats have been sounding more and more like King Louis XVI as portrayed by Mel Brooks in History of the World, Part I:

Count de Monet: “The People Are Revolting!”
Louis XVI: “You said it — they stink on ice!”

And we know how that turned out.

August Revolting
By Asher Embry

Thankfully the August recess hasn’t been august.
Town halls have left the Democrats entirely nonplussed.
Pelosi’s crew has failed to understand, it’s no surprise,
That in these “angry mobs” our true democracy still lies.

Obama tried to rule by force, the old Chicago way.
We’ve shown we won’t accept that; we insist we have our say.
And Reid’s been calling each of us a useless “evil-monger.”
But each time they belittle us it only makes us stronger.

The camel’s back’s been broken; health “reform” was just the straw.
Town halls unleashed the people’s power, ablaze with shock and awe.
The message that we’re sending to each Democratic hack:
It never was your government; we’re going to take it back!
