LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - So glad you could join us for a Night Before Christmas with a twist-Craig's Twist.

T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse

Because all of Congress had taken a break
Leaving millions of angry taxpayers in their wake
Oh so often with compromise within their reach

And a President wanting to go home to the beach
They played political games with taxpayers' money
Neither hopeful, nor helpful
and especially not funny

Then over the capitol dome did appear
A federally subsidized sleigh pulled by deer
And a man in red who said be not afraid
Called himself Claus, obviously a lawyer by trade

With a wave of his hand he cast a spell
That in 13 the government would get well
That lawmakers would care less who lost and who won
But instead concentrate on getting things done

For most of the night he worked on this hex
Despite obviously exceeding the body mass index
He did it with such humor and with such cheer
Then got in his sleigh and called to his deer

On Boehner, On Griffin, On pelosi On reid
On Boozman, On Pryor, on all mighty steeds
But then alas, instead of rising into the air
Pulled by those guys, the sleigh went nowhere

And Santa Claus sat and really got miffed
As he felt the sleigh slide toward the fiscal cliff
