An impeachment duet to the tune of “I Feel Pretty”

Maria singing “I Feel Pretty” in the movie version of “West Side Story”

By Laurie Baron

“I feel petty
Oh, so petty
I feel petty, and full of spite.
And I’m ready
To defame the Dems I have to fight.

It’s a witch hunt.
It’s a lynching.
There’s no wincing from my perfect call.
And ignoring
Subpoenas as a way to stall.

Hear the Donald withholding aid,
Investigate the Bidens for me.
Such a small request.
To do at my behest
For an ally
To harm my enemy?

I feel immune
And empowered
Like Article One doesn’t exist.
The base loves me.
If you cross me, you’ll be on my blacklist.”


Have you met the President named Trump,
The bully who threatens free speech?
He lies and abuses his powers.
And that’s why it’s time to impeach.

He thinks it’s unfair.
He thinks it’s a coup.
It looks like he erred.
But can he rue?

He’s so petty
Oh, so petty
He’s so petty, and full of spite.
The House is ready.
Adam will lead the fight!
