The evidence against them was overwhelming.
We explained their crimes in simple terms.
Our facts were unassailable. We exposed
their villainy to the bright light of day
on hundreds of community radio stations
and dozens of progressive web sites.
We proposed innovative programs to
restore the environment, reverse global warming,
create millions and millions of new and meaningful jobs,
provide free education and healthcare for all,
and bring about a cultural renaissance.
They countered with a mesmerizing music video
featuring a catchy song about freedom and hope
and the dawning of a new tomorrow.
The song was performed by a gorgeous woman
wearing a diaphanous red, white, and blue gown
clinging to the curves of her exquisite body
as she and a rainbow coalition of beautiful young women
danced to the irresistible rhythm of the song,
their eyes sparkling with tears.
This music video was shown
to everyone everywhere
through every form of media
seventy-seven billion times.
The vote was not close.
