Republicans in Russia

What better way to celebrate the foundational document of your nation than to visit a hostile foreign power that has meddled in US elections? Eight Republican senators decided to spend the Fourth of July on a visit to Russia. The delegation DID manage to spend time on the 4th with the US Ambassador, where they sang the national anthem:

Oh, say can you see
By St Basil’s fair domes
The proud GOP,
Paying court at the Kremlin.

In bold ties and dark suits,
They are far from their homes.
Doing damage to us,
Sabotage like a gremlin.

And each GOP flack
Wants a KGB hack
To win in the Fall
‘Cos it’s morals they lack.

Oh, say does your senator hang out with Putie?
Then voting his ass out, is your sacred duty!

It's actually shocking, even by current political standards, to see how our government is in bed with Putin. It makes me very, very sad.

It is truly depressing. Great song though!

Richard Condon was waaaay ahead of his time with The Manchurian Candidate pointing out that the super-patriot right-wingers were the real Soviet intelligence assets.

Very nice use of your National Anthem, you witty Librul!
I bet you helped to hurt poor Alex Jones' feelings over on Twitter, too.
