Editor’s Note: It seems fitting that something as completely fabricated as the “Fiscal Cliff” should have its own theme song. The Republicans draw a line in the sand based upon fictive principles and the Democrats run around whining about how the Republicans are not playing fair. Then, of course, they cave. The rest of us need to constantly remind ourselves that WE did not F things up. They did. Their policies, their coddling of the super-rich, and their refusal to make good on promises to the rest of us. Yes, we are the 99%. And we didn’t F it up. But we’re the only one’s who can Un-F it. Katie Goodman sent us a link to her video last month. As Republicans and Democrats return to the “Fiscal Cliff” dance floor, we should be singing this song, loudly and in unison. Thank you, Katie.
