    Duly crediting Gilbert and Sullivan:

    Behold the Lord High Executioner
    A personage of noble rank and title —
    A dignified and potent officer,
    Whose functions are particularly vital!
    Defer, defer,
    To the Lord High Executioner!
    Defer, defer,
    To the noble Lord, to the noble Lord,
    To the Lord High Executioner!

    Why am I shoving this pension bill, the size of a cannoli this big, down the throats of every pension eligible working man and woman? Because I can.

  27. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Dec 4, 13 @ 9:28 am:

    Is this the real life?
    Is this just fantasy?
    Beware of a landslide,
    No escape from reality.

    Open your eyes,
    Look up to the skies and see,
    I’m just the Speaker, I need no sympathy,
    Because I’m easy come, easy go,
    Little high, little low,
    Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.

    “Speaker”, just run the Bill,
    Put a vote against this Bill,
    Pulled a trigger, if you will.
    “Speaker”, “Voting has begun”,
    But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.

    “Unions”, ooh,
    Didn’t mean to make you cry,
    If this Bill fails to Pass this time tomorrow,
    “Carry on, carry on” as if reform never matters.

    Too late, it’s time has come,
    Sent shivers down my spine,
    Polling’s aching all the time.
    Goodbye, pension debate, It’s got to go,
    Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

    “Speaker”, ooh (any way the wind blows),
    I don’t wanna “No”,
    I sometimes wish I’d never seen this at all.

    (Another Mushroom)

    I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you reconsider?
    Thunderbolt and lightning,
    Very, very frightening me.
    (Hello Speaker) Sit Down Mushroom.
    (Hello Speaker) Sit Down Mushroom,
    Hello Speaker, “To the Bill”
    Magnifico.

    I’m just a Mushroom and nobody loves me.
    He’s just a Mushroom from a Target District,
    Spare him his Vote from this monstrosity.

    Easy come, easy go, will you let me “go”?
    Bismillah! No, I will not let you “go”.
    (Let him go!) Bismillah! I will not let you go.
    (Let him go!) Bismillah! I will not let you go.
    (Let me go) Will not let you go.
    (Let me go) Will not let you go.
    (Never, never, never let me go) Ah.
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
    (Oh, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker) Mr. Speaker, let us go.
    The Speaker’s Crew has a “Challenge” put aside for me, for me, for me.

    So you think you can “Vote” me and spit in my eye?
    So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
    Oh, Musrooms, can’t do this to me, Mushrooms,
    Just gotta Vote yes, just gotta Vote this outta here.

    (Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

    (Speaker) Nothing really matters,
    Anyone can see,
    Nothing really matters,
    Nothing really matters to me.

    Any way the wind blows.

    Master of the house, doling out the charm
    Ready with a handshake and an open palm
    Tells a saucy take, makes a little stir
    Customers appreciate a bon viveur
    Glad to do a friend a favor
    Doesn’t cost me to be nice
    But nothing gets you nothing
    Everything has got a little price

    Speaker Madigan singing a scene from his favorite movie, the Wizard of Oz-
    “If I were King of the Forest, Not queen, not duke, not prince.
    My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz.
    I’d command each thing, be it fish or fowl.”

    Oh, wait I already am the King of the forest, silly me.

    What do the five fingers say to the pension? SLAP!


  52. - Irish - Wednesday, Dec 4, 13 @ 10:12 am:

    “I know I was the leader in causing this fiscal mess. But I don’t care! I got to continue to be Speaker. And yes I know the guaranteed funding item is a joke. But again I don’t care. We will spin this so the voters will sing our praise. Just don’t be caught explaining the particulars because that won’t help us.”

    And a standing O to OW @ 9:28am. Especially for his pointing out that mushrooms with challenges in the upcoming elections were allowed to vote no.


  53. - Irish - Wednesday, Dec 4, 13 @ 10:14 am:

    Put an apple in his mouth and bake at 350 for 6 hours. Not much meat there though.
