You’re Not As Smart As You Think You Are

If “love is louder”, why are you so silent
In the face of mass murder by an imperial giant?
Are you not appalled by what your President is doing?
Or are you more concerned with your sitcom that’s debuting?
Because what’s more important than the killing of Muslim youth?
Maybe a gigglefest with the girls over glasses of vermouth
You may think your acting career has taken you far
But Ms. Bush, you’re not as smart as you think you are

If “smart is sexy”, why are you so clueless?
He doesn’t “care about us”, his foreign policy is ruthless
Without a public option, health care is still seriously flawed
And no President should ever have the power to play God
Are you not disgusted by his actions in the Middle East?
Or that your country’s civil liberties have greatly decreased?
You may have worked hard to become a TV star
But Ms. Bush, you’re not as smart as you think you are

If you’re “leading with love”, why are you behind on hate?
If you think your President’s a “real man”, you’re in for a debate
Was it cool to promise hope and change then renege on the deal
As he continues to allow Wall Street to do what they feel?
Was it honourable to promise openness then shield criminal acts
Or am I just revealing far too many inconvenient facts?
You may think your dear leader is up to par
But Ms. Bush, you’re not as smart as you think you are

If “tolerance is sexy”, why do you stay quiet?
Innocent Muslims are getting murdered or do you deny it?
How can you care about gay people haunted by dissension
While Private Bradley Manning never warrants a mention?
Like others, he exposed wrongdoing and is paying the price
But you got a photo with your President.  Isn’t that nice?
You may drive around Hollywood in your fancy “green” car
But Ms. Bush, you’re not as smart as you think you are
