Fiddlin' - Beatles Song "Yesterday" Lampoons Scandalous Politician


Yesterday by the Beatles is 50 years old this week. It deserves a parody song in honor of this milestone anniversary. Former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert is in the news lately because he was caught making hush payments to cover up a high school student sex abuse scandal from when he was a high school wrestling coach.


Sing to the tune of Yesterday by the Beatles:

Hastert, D., all your troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.

Suddenly, you’re not quite the man you act to be.
There's a shadow hanging over thee.
Oh, Hasert, D. you’re sodomly.

Now, you’ll have to go,
Don’t you know, you cannot stay.
You did something wrong,
It’s so long to Hastert, D.

Hastert, D., love was such a sleazy game you played.
Now you need a place to hide away.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.

Now you’ll have to go,
Don't you know, you cannot stay.
You did something wrong,
It’s so long to Hastert, D.

Hastert, D., love was such a sleazy game you played.
Now you need a place to hide away.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.


On a serious note, child abuse is a tragic action that should be condemned at all times and steps taken to make sure it happens less and less. Unfortunately, one of the communities that should be a leading voice in fighting child abuse is curiously silent. Even though same-sex child abuse is ten times higher than opposite sex child abuse as a proportion of the LGBT community, there is no high profile LGBT campaign to reduce this crime. Given that LGBT's are victims of child abuse at rates three to five times higher than the normal population, you would think they would make this an important issue like HIV. It hasn't happened, and in fact part of the diversity embraced by the LGBT community are groups that advocate intimate relations between youth and adults. Just another reason why LGBT values are bad for society.
