Ding! Dong! The Mitch Is Dead!

Posted by on in Culture Blogs

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But someday.

Someday—may it be soon—we'll hear the news that the Most Hated Man in America, the Hypocrite of Hypocrites, Obstructionist of Obstructionists, the Slaveholder of the Senate, has met his entirely natural, but long overdue, demise.

And bells of freedom will ring out across the land.


Ding! Dong! the Mitch is Dead!


Ding dong the Mitch is dead.

Which old Mitch?

The wicked Mitch.

Ding dong

the wicked Mitch is dead!


Hi ho the merry-O!

Sing it high,

sing it low:

wake up,

the wicked Mitch is dead!


He's gone where the nazzes go,

below, below, below,

yo ho!

So let's all dance and sing

and ring the bells out.



Hi ho the merry-O!

Sing it high,

sing it low:

let them know

the wicked Mitch is dead!

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.

    I keep getting E-mails that Mitch is tied with his opponent; I think her name is Amy McGrath. I am doing that 40 day prayer ritual to get the voters to hold our elected officials accountable for both their actions and their inactions. I also went and early voted in person at city hall today. May Mitch's retirement come soon.

    Mr. Posch,

    Eminent historian, Christopher Browning, refers to him as the, "Gravedigger of American democracy."

    'Nuff said.

    May said Gravedigger be buried in the grave he dug for himself.
