Newsverse: 'Moo, Bah, Blah-Blah-Blah?'

(with apologies to Sandra Boynton)

"We've reached a point now where it's like a milk cow with 310 million tits!" —Former senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.), co-chair of the president's Commission on Debt Reduction, referring to Social Security.

A cow says moo.
And he says bah!
Three singing pigs say O-ba-ma!
And oink and grunt and whine and squeal
If you touch the pigs' New Deal.

No way will Alan Simpson truckle
To the hordes who want to suckle
At the governmental udder
Lapping up that cream and butter
Greedily they swill and tipple
From the New Deal's golden nipple
From taxpayers' empty jug.
Can't we simply pull the plug
On Granny and her monthly check?
Run it by Rand Paul, Glenn Beck ...
It's bound to rile up and arouse
Madame speaker of the House
For which he'll happily take bows.
Alan Simpson knows from cows.
