I’m changing my name to Fannie Mae (Video)

If you’re a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down in Congress there’s a safety net for you  🙂

Arlo Guthrie updates Tom Paxton’s “I’m Changing My Name to Chrysler” for these times.  Performed live at the Guthrie Center:

Oh the price of gold is rising out of sight
And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight
What the dollar used to get us now won’t buy a head of lettuce
No the economic forecast isn’t right
But amidst the clouds I spot a shining ray
I can even glimpse a new and better way
And I’ve devised a plan of action worked it down to the last fraction
And I’m going into action here today

CHORUS:
I am changing my name to Fannie Mae
I am going down to Washington D.C.
I’ll be glad they got my back
‘Cause what they did for Freddie Mac
Will be perfectly acceptable to me
I am changing my name to Fannie Mae
I am headed for that great receiving line
So when they hand a trillion grand out
I’ll be standing with my hand out
I’ll get mine

When my creditors are screaming for their dough
I’ll be proud to tell them all where they can go
They won’t have to scream and holler
They’ll be paid to the last dollar
Where the endless streams of money seem to flow
I’ll be glad to tell them all what they can do
It’s a matter of a simple form or two
It’s not just remuneration it’s a liberal education
Ain’t you kind of glad that I’m in debt to you

Chorus

Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime (of the slime!)
We’ve been struggling in an unrelenting climb
We were hardly up and walking before money started talking
And it’s sad that failure is an awful crime
It’s been that way for a millennium or two
But now it seems that there’s a different point of view
If you’re a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down in Congress there’s a safety net for you

Chorus

H/T Michelle Malkin – Tea Party USA

Rick Santelli responds to Gibbs on Kudlow Report (Video)

Rick Santelli responds on the Kudlow Report to Robert Gibbs’ remarks about him during the press conference on Friday.  Also Kudlow speaks about the bullying aspect of the personal attacks coming from the White House and the press secretary in response to any criticism.  Paranoid?  Shades of Richard Nixon?

It should be noted that Rick Santelli opposed and ranted against the TARP plan under Bush as well.
