The Capitol Steps performed at my synagogue tonight. They're a political comedy troupe who sing classic songs like "The Loonies of the Right" (i.e. Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera as sung by a masked, cloaked John Ashcroft) and recite bedtime stories as told by Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge. ("Little Red Riding Hood went to see her grandmother but found she had been sent to an undisclosed location for safekeeping. The end.") Traditionally, near the end of their show, there's a segment called "Lirty Dies", where consonants get reversed in order to lake mewd insinuations about folitical pigures. I was pleased to hear today about the senator Sick Rantorum, who apparently said that solohexumality is as bad as choffing your bihuahua.
