‘Silence’ Calls For Simon And Garfunkel

Hello Stalin, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a Romney softly creeping
Left hids seeds while I was sleeping
Capitalism planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I taxed alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my ‘prompter to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a Friedman quote
That got my goat
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
Composites talking without speaking
Legislators voting without reading
People writing budgest that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools”, said I, “You do not know
My power like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might fool you
Take my arms that I might con you”
But my words, like campaign promises fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To propaganda god they made
And the blogs flashed out their warning
In the posts that the were forming
And the post said, “‘Silence’ Calls For Simon And Garfunkel:
A Parody Swell”
And whispered in the sounds of silence

    Obama’s reelection campaign strategy for dealing with his record over the last 3+ years is to treat it like Stacy’s secret meeting:  it never happened.

    Makes sense, though.  He can’t really defend his record, there is no case to be made, and every Republican will be running against it.  Diversion is the best hope, and I have to admit that anyone who might be convinced to vote to reelect Obama at this point is easily gullible enough to divert.
