After a wild premiere on BrainDead ("The Insanity Principle: How Extremism in Politics is Threatening Democracy in the 21st Century"), we could use a quick recap to see where everything stands before the second episode ("Playing Politics: Living Life in the Shadow of the Budget Showdown-- a Critique"). Fortunately, we have one here in musical form... with lyrics below!


Some kind of meteor came down, no one knows where it’s from
They shipped it off so they could study it in Washington
Guess what, it’s filled with space bugs
And now they’re loose and eating people’s brains

Poor Laurel only wants to make her documentaries
She’s out of money so she works for Luke, her brother, he’s
A Democratic senator
She listens to constituents complain

Gareth is working for
Red Wheatus who’s a senator:
A southerner, a Republican, a drunk
The government is shutting down
Until they find a workaround
The deal they make looks like a slamdunk

But space bugs crawl into Red’s brain and start controlling him
He steals a Democrat and flips him to Republican
The shut down happens and now everybody’s mad again
And Laurel discovers Scarlett’s sleeping with her brother and

It looks like Scarlett probably has a space bug problem too
You know your day was lousy when somebody’s head explodes
on you.
