Send the bodies of Ducey’s victims over to the Pima County Republican Party offices, located down at 1740 E Fort Lowell Rd Suit 140, Tucson, AZ. I’m sure they’re busy, so there’s no need to warn them in advance that you’re dropping in. Fill their offices with the bodybags.

I am a mortician in Pima county and this is extremely appreciated and needed, but this claim is entirely false:

“County officials said that the need “to provide relief for some hospitals and funeral homes is not associated with any known surge of COVID-19-related deaths.”

Instead, there are “backlogs in the funeral industry” as social/physical distancing regulations and limits on travel have meant it is harder for families to hold funeral services.”

We have not had delays in funeral services, instead most families are choosing direct cremation/burial or to hold a small service with only close family.

The bodies piling up and filling every funeral home in Tucson ARE directly related to COVID deaths and increasing every day. Trying to pass it off as “backlog” is a direct lie.

You’re walking in the woods
There’s no one around and your phone is dead
Out of the corner of your eye you spot him:
Gov’nor Ducey.

He’s following you, about 30 feet back
He gets down on all fours and breaks into a sprint
He’s gaining on you
Gov’nor Ducey

You’re looking for you car but you’re all turned around
He’s almost upon you now
And you can see there’s blood on his face
My God, there’s blood everywhere!

Running for your life (from Gov’nor Ducey)
He’s brandishing COVID (It’s Gov’nor Ducey)
Lurking in the mansion
Republican superstar Gov’nor Ducey

Won’t require masks (Gov’nor Ducey)
Obstructing mayors (Gov’nor Ducey)
Open all the gun shops
Actual psychopath Gov’nor Ducey

Now it’s dark and you seem to have lost him
But you’re feverishly hot yourself
Stranded with a murderer
You creep silently through the underbrush

Aha! In the distance
A hospital with a light on
Hope! You move stealthily toward it
But your mask! Ah! It’s caught in a body bag!

Pulling out your mask (Quiet, quiet)
Crawling to the ER (Quiet, quiet)
Now you’re on the doorstep
Sitting inside: Gov’nor Ducey

Infecting workers (Gov’nor Ducey)
But he doesn’t hear you enter (Gov’nor Ducey)
You’re sneaking up behind him
Masking superstar Gov’nor Ducey

Fighting for your life with Gov’nor Ducey
Wrestling a mask onto Gov’nor Ducey
Make him hold his COVID
Safe at last from Gov’nor Ducey

You limp into the dark woods
Blood oozing from your raw lungs
But you have won; you have beaten
Gov’nor Ducey

Wait! He isn’t dead (Ducey surprise)
Intubed to your head and death in his eyes
But you can do immune moves

Body slam superstar Gov’nor Ducey
Legendary fight with Gov’nor Ducey
Normal Tuesday night for Gov’nor Ducey
You try to swing an axe at Gov’nor Ducey

But blood is draining fast from your sick lungs
He’s dodging every swipe, he parries to the left
You counter to the right, you catch him in the neck
You’re chopping his head now
You have just decapitated Gov’nor Ducey

His head Topples to the floor, expressionless
You fall to your knees and catch your breath
You’re finally safe from Gov’nor Ducey ...

(sung to the tune of
Youtube: “Shia LaBeouf” Live - Rob Cantor

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.


Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
