Crowson: I Used to Get By With the Help From My Friends

The governor's legislative enablers lost out in the primary the other day... but Sam Brownback is singing the same old song:

What would you do if I wrecked your whole state
If I gave all your dough to the rich
Won't expand Medicaid, I put schools in bad shape,
Drove the state's budget into a ditch

Oh, tell me why you elected my friends
I used to get by with the help from my friends
You voted goodbye to my Brownbacky friends

If I didn't know any better I'd say
That my policies led to disgust
My lawmaker friends on election day
Got kicked out flat on their butts

Oh, tell me why you elected my friends
I used to get by with the help from my friends
You voted goodbye to my Brownbacky friends

Did I learn any lesson?
Am I thinking of changing my style?
Should I plot a new course now?
Nah--I think I'll stay in denial.
