'Twas the night before...

'Twas the night of Indictments, and all through DC,
The Rethugs were nervous, even Dick Cheney;
The skeletons were all packed in their closets with care,
In hopes that Fitzgerald hadn't looked there;

Congress was nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of kickbacks danced in their heads;
And Laura in her 'kerchief, and Bush in his ballcap,
Had just settled down for their 2nd evening nap,

* shock's diary :: ::

When on my TV there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the kitchen I flew like a flash,
Turned up the volume and got myself a snack.

The glow of the TV in my always-cluttered den,
Gave and air of excitement to my normal pig pen,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Lights, mikes and reporters. (I popped open a beer.)

From Brian William's voice, so somber and thick,
I knew in a moment it must be Fitzpatrick. (*)
More rapidly than I expected, his indictments they came,
Conspiracy, IIPA, CINA; he called them by name:
ROVE, LIBBY, now Fleischer, now Novak (my word!),
On, Condi! on CHENEY! on Miller and Card!
To the top of the government, to the bottom of the stall,
Indicted. Yes, indicted! Sweet indictments for all!

As cheap levees that after a wild hurricane pass,
When the pressure builds up, they burst like a blast,
So to the Truth, the reporters they flew,
Mobbing the Rethugs, and Fitzgerald too.

Then all the commotion took an incredible turn,
W was named too, all were astounded to learn!!
An unindicted co-conspirator, not really a surprise,
but miraculously it opened up millions of eyes.
Things were now different, from the top to the bottom,
the rot was exposed, the fear was forgotten.
From the squealing of rats that were fleeing the ship,
The country woke up and finally got a grip.

And in the next fortnight, the SCLM made clear,
that they'd been holding back for a good many a year,
While we'd talked on the blogs, and were spreading around,
the "liberal" corporate media had nare made a sound.
But now they were going full blast, wall-to-wall,
People couldn't believe it -- reporters with gall!
And so many stories that'd been swept under rugs,
re-emerged with a vengeance on the vilest Rethugs.

Well, congress changed hands -- both chambers were cleaned!
The country finally healing, or so it seemed.
But even at that point, I wasn't content,
'ere I was again watching the tube, another sacred event...
