Remember Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop?

| Opinion | May 16, 2019

The hall has been rented. The orchestra has been engaged. The “Corps de Ballet” is stretching in the wings. The chorus of perpetually angry Democrats is lined up waiting for their single file entrance. The maestro is about to make his “Q” and the Opus Magnum is about to begin. The Caucus Chorus will begin singing about Trump’s collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice and the dark messenger Attorney General Barr being worthy of “Contempt of Congress.” I hope Barr wears his badge of shame proudly. Presumption of innocence and lack of chargeable evidence be damned.

At last the lights dim, Chuck Schumer steps out to center stage, followed one by one, by his fellow Harpies and Sirens. He begins to sing.

“This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue singing it forever just because…This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue singing it forever just because … This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.

Days, months and years later, the song goes on and on. Die-hard “useful idiots” are still enthralled by the performance and cannot wait for the encore, “Little Johnny One Note.” Purists complain that the text really is “the song that never ends.”

R.I.P Shari Lewis and Lamp Chop. We still remember and love you.
