From THE HILL:
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) compared President Trump‘s consideration of a plan to strip half a dozen former national security and intelligence officials of their security clearances to “a banana republic kind of thing.”

From VANITY FAIR:
At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.”

To the tune of Love is All Around, Lyrics by Sonny Curtis (Theme from The Mary Tyler Moore Show:
♬Who can turn the right on with his bile?
Who can take a sunny day, and turn it into a big stinking pile?
Well, it’s you, Roy, and you should know it,
With each slur and with that tiny pistol, you show it. ♪
♫ They’ll slap you on the back and get all tribal,
So spread your hate around, and thump your bible.
It’s Alabama after all,
It’s Alabama after all. ♪

Steve Bannon. Do I need to say more? Hell, no! Because I can sing instead!!
To the tune of If I Only Had a Brain by Harold Arlen (music) and E.Y. Harburg (lyrics):
🎼 If my lips move, then I’m lyin’
Or I’m Holocaust denyin’,
Don’t care if that’s profane,
Because hour by hour,
I’m amassing so much power,
All of D.C.’s my domain.♫
Hey kids, I think we all need a little break from Donald Trump and his mishegas, so let’s all sit around the campfire and sing a little song.
To the tune of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (written by the Sherman Brothers):
Here we go again. Remember back in 2007 when then-Governor of Georgia, Sonny Rainman Perdue, when faced with the worst drought in 100 years, came up with a logical solution? That’s right, he held a public prayer vigil. How about when, also in 2007, then-Governor of Alabama, Bob Riley, actually issued a “Pray for Rain” proclamation in his “Curse Drought” campaign? Well, those crazy Rethuglican kids are at it again! From Salon:
Trend alert! In the face of devastating natural disasters, Republican governors around the country are increasingly asking constituents to join in prayer to God to solve their states’ intractable problems.
The latest example is Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, who, in response to a brutal heat wave that has contributed to over one hundred wildfires, asked Oklahomans to collectively pray for rain on Sunday.
To the tune of Who’ll Stop the Rain, written by John Fogerty, as performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival:
A natural disaster, drives a lot of folks insane,
They drop to their knees faster, yeah, that old trick again,
The rainman down in Georgia, ex-Governor Perdue,
In aught 7, he looked to heaven, not one drop of dew.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, kids, but I read this over at POLITICO:
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels told supporters in an email early Sunday that he will not run for president in 2012, a decision he said ultimately came down to his family’s reticence about a campaign.
First Haley Barbour, then Mike
xChuckleberryx Huckabee, then Donald Trump, and now ol’ Mitch. If you’re like me, you’re beside yourself with grief. Well, I know the only thing that will cheer us all up is a song, so warm up those vocal chords, kids!
To the tune of Beauty School Dropout written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, as performed by Frankie Avalon:
Your story, sad to tell,
A Rethug ne’er-do-well,
Most nasty lying scumbag on the block!
Your future’s so unclear now,
What’s left of your career now?
Can’t even get a trade-in on your bile!
