After reading the headlines, I happened to hear this's Randy Newman's prescient song about the worst party he ever went to...
(I see George Santos in a red shift boogieing with Large Marj Greene and lip-locking Matt Gaetz)

"Mama Told Me Not to Come" by Randy Newman written for Eric Burdon's first solo album in 1966.

Here's Three Dog Night's 1970 version which topped the charts

Go ahead, close your eyes and imagine them continuously voting for Speaker of the House

Great song, I didn't realize it was Newman's.

Hurts like a bastid...

It was on his 12 Songs album.

Not much on it that I cared for, but I bought it for Mama and Suzanne, which I really liked.

To of my favorite covers are Three Dog Night's Mama and Chest Fever.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
