Elite Insurgents, Sing Out!

A David Sirota post over on The Daily Kos about David Broder speaking of elite insurgents inspired me to parody Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee.”

Sing it:

We don’t stoke the wars here in the blogosphere;
We don’t take our trips on Air Force One
We don’t see the Beltway as our Main Street;
We like livin’ right, and want you gone.

I’m proud to be a blogger elite insurgent,
In a place where even nerds can speak to all
We still believe democracy will win out,
And a “recommend”‘s the biggest thrill of all

We don’t make a party out of quick cash;
We like holdin’ talks and workin’ through;
We don’t let our young ones die for nothing,
Like the DC warriors so often do.

I’m proud to be a blogger elite insurgent,
In a place where even nerds can speak to all
We still believe democracy will win out,
And a “recommend”‘s the biggest thrill of all

Let us boot the criminals right out of here;
Bush and Rummy and the others, all obscene.
They’ve dropped their crap too often here among us,
The only one we still respect is named John Dean.

We still believe democracy will win out,
In the elite insurgent blogosphere today.
