When the President Talks to God

We try to keep this kind of a non political space, and god knows I post way more about shitty movies and television than about anything else. But...in the wake of the stem cell veto and corresponding (and just kind of gross) photo op with little "fetus adoption" children (note to fetus adopters: there are plenty of former fetuses, which we sane people call "unfrozen, unwanted human children" available for adoption, you freaks), all despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of former fetuses, including those former fetuses who occupy Congress, and even Republican former fetuses like Bill Frist, for fuck's sake, agree that stem cell research is in general an important step in the right direction, it seems like a good time for these lyrics.

When the president talks to God
Are the conversations brief or long?
Does he ask to rape our women’s' rights
And send poor farm kids off to die?
Does God suggest an oil hike
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Are the consonants all hard or soft?
Is he resolute all down the line?
Is every issue black or white?
Does what God say ever change his mind
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Does he fake that drawl or merely nod?
Agree which convicts should be killed?
Where prisons should be built and filled?
Which voter fraud must be concealed
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
I wonder which one plays the better cop
We should find some jobs. the ghetto's broke
No, they're lazy, George, I say we don't
Just give 'em more liquor stores and dirty coke
That's what God recommends

When the president talks to God
Do they drink near beer and go play golf
While they pick which countries to invade
Which Muslim souls still can be saved?
I guess god just calls a spade a spade
When the president talks to God

When the president talks to God
Does he ever think that maybe he's not?
That that voice is just inside his head
When he kneels next to the presidential bed
Does he ever smell his own bullshit
When the president talks to God?

I would have enjoyed this post more if it were accompanied by a video of Alizee dancing to the song.

I know you're with me, Aaron...

You want to know who the "friend" was who referred me to the Alizee video?

God.
