TINA BROWN AT the weekly rag (except that rags can be useful) Newsweek has descended into rank ad feminam in the current cover photo of Michele Bachman.

I’m sick and tired of hearing things from uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocritics.
All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.
I’ve had enough of reading things by neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians.
All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope.
Money for dope.
Money for rope.

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of soap

Money for rope

I’m sick to death of seeing things from tight-lipped, condescending, mama’s little chauvinists.
All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth now.
I’ve had enough of watching scenes of schizophrenic, ego-centric, paranoiac, prima-donnas.
All I want is the truth now.
Just gimme some truth.

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of soap.
It’s money for dope.
Money for rope.

Ah, I’m sick and tired of hearing things from uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites.
All I want is the truth now.
Just gimme some truth now.
I’ve had enough of reading things by neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians.
All I want is the truth now.
Just gimme some truth now.

All I want is the truth now.
Just gimme some truth now.
All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.
All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.

Funny how thirty years ago, that sounded so counter-culture. Now, only the names on the Establishment have changed.
