"Suddenly Steve King," From the Smash Musical, LITTLE SHOP OF BIGOTS

Hello Shower Captives! There's been a little bit too much real life to deal with today, and I'm unable to get the usual Monday blog up, but I'll catch you up tomorrow. To tide you over, here's a little reimagining of a Broadway classic for you:

(There are even links in this one, check it out on Cap's site: http://showercapblog.com/suddenly-steve-king-from-the-smash-musical-little-shop-of-bigots/)

REPUBLICANS:

Furrow your brow
Look mad on Jake Tapper
Denounce that hate speech
Send a self-righteous tweet

With the same hand
Grab your dog whistle
We're all just as bad
But much more discreet

Suddenly Steve King
Turned out to be racist
It just happened last week
And none of us knew

Suddenly Steve King
And how should we face this?
With fake condemnation
Steve King, fuck you

DEMOCRATS:

None of you ever said shit about his
Decades of hatred; did you, Ted Cruz?
He hung around with those Austrian Nazis
Did you not notice? It was on the news.

Suddenly Steve King
Is too racist for you?
You sought his endorsement
He chaired your campaign
“Suddenly” Steve King's
Begun to abhor you
What fake condemnation
And phony disdain

REPUBLICANS:

Tell me that someone's buying this bullshit
Tell me the media will quickly move on

DEMOCRATS:

Please understand that we noticed your silence
Your years of enabling can't just be withdrawn

Suddenly Steve King
(Suddenly Steve King)
He showed who you are
(He showed who we are)

Suddenly Steve King
(Suddenly Steve King)
Still in your clan
(You mean Klan)

Not just a wee fling
With white nationalism
(With white nationalism)

With fake condemnation
(With fake condemnation)
With fake condemnation
(With fake condemnation)
With fake condemnation

Steve King's your maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan

1. TheFerret, you're the best

I just watched that recently, to see the director's cut that had the original Broadway ending (honestly, prefer the original theatrical ending).

That's perfect and was actually singing that as I read it.
