2006 ended in a somber December
As the 3,000th solider died in Iraq, we remember.
Abramoff was jailed for flying politicians on his jet
And how could we forget about our national steep debt.
Cheney shot a man in the face, showing no regret.
But America was focused on Suri being a brunette.
It was also the year of rampant racism:
Michael Richards's comedy lacked witticism
Mel Gibson and the Jews, well, talk about a schism
North Korea's nuclear program became headlined
And Osama Bin Laden we still cannot find.
For I really did not need to see Borat's behind
Who cares that Kevin and Britney had a change of mind?!
Israel and Hezbollah caused trouble in the Gaza Strip
While John Murtha for a while was a lonely lip.
Mark Foley played with participants of his internship
And to call Pluto our planet is no longer hip.
Tucker dancing with the stars was certainly a highlight
While Couric become the first female anchor at night.
Star Jones left The View and put up a fight,
And the Rosie-Donald brawl was anything but polite.
And Donald Rumsefeld was ultimately forced to resign.
Al Gore pleaded with Americans to see the temperature incline.
The Iraq Study Group published a grave warning sign.
But please remember everyone else too,
Including an intervention in Darfur, long overdue
And that is the end of my 2006 review!
