Finished With My Woman ‘Cause She Couldn’t Help Me With My Mind
Victoria Jackson with her Eurovision entry for this year:
It seems these days
I’m in a haze,
And I can’t concentrate on things,
Don’t eat or sleep,
And kinda scared and creepy.
I look over my shoulder lots
And shudder when I watch TV.
I bite my nails and cuticles
And watch my words very carefully.
I bite my lip a lot
And fidget with the buttons on my blouse.
…BECAUSE THERE’S A COMMUNIST LIVING IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!
I’m jittery, my teeth I grate
I twitch, I shake, I ruminate
Lately I’m perplexed and pinched
In pain, I pout and ponder.
Why aren’t people shocked or something,
Why aren’t people up in arms?
Does anyone read history?
Or see red flags, or hear alarms?
The streets are filled with deaf and dumb
As I squeal like a mouse,
“THERE”S A COMMUNIST LIVING IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!”
My husband really misses me.
My parents think I’ve gone crazy.
Only Glenn Beck understands me,
And, of course, Sean Hannity.
But, it seems, besides us three,
And the nice people who drink the Tea,
There’s no one else who can see
THE COMMUNIST LIVING IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!
Maybe I have lost my mind,
Or have been drugged by some narcotic.
Maybe I’m watching a movie called 1984
Or maybe I am just psychotic.
If I’m in a dream, fast asleep
I guess I will just try to keep
My eyes shut ’til this goes away
And I awake to a happier day
When my ukulele does not play
This dire song of distress and dismay
Called…THERE’S A COMMUNIST LIVING IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!
What I love about Jackson is how completely unconcerned she is with actual politics. She doesn’t care about policy, she doesn’t care about the crass horse-race mechanics, she doesn’t even really care about half-baked conspiracy theories. Her entire engagement with the political sphere begins and ends with some guys on the TV telling her to be afraid, so she’s afraid. There’s zero political content in the above; it’s all about her fear.
She is like a parody of a parody of a Michael Moore strawman. It’s pretty startling and saddening that someone like her actually exists. If I were John Nolte I’d be embarrassed.
