All right stop collaborate and listen
The Senate’s back and they’re ready in session
China grabs a hold of ’em tightly
Committees got issues daily and nightly
Will it ever show? yo I don’t know
Give us the report and we’ll glow
Needin’ the facts to make good decisions
Shouldn’t be hard, cause it ain’t cell division

Oh not that kind of rap?

Never mind.

All right stop collaborate and listen
The Senate’s back with a new inquisition
Funding grabs a hold of us tightly
Staffers flow in daily and nightly
Will it ever stop yo I don’t know
Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
To testify I rock a mike like a vandal
Light up committee and wax the chair like a candle

Oh, not that kind of rap?  Never mind.

Of course the loss wasn’t the President’s, it was Secretary Gates’. The F136 is the General Electric/Rolls Royce engine for the F-35; the F135 is the Pratt & Whitney engine.

I don’t understand the heartburn: I thought we were supposed to have competition in our acquisition programs.

The numbers on the F136 vote were almost identical to the House vote to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, which FWIW, was supposed to be considered after the DoD completed its DADT study.
