The key point of the song is that it is a faulty system that makes the individuals in government corrupt (not the other way around). Key lyric: "most of them weren't bad, they were just drawn that way".

Full Lyrics:

WMD

There’s a club on the left
And a club on the right
The process of admission
Is forgetting about what’s right
Shielded from the problems
They cast upon their droves
Uniting briefly in agreement
To constrain the GAO

The games of the few
They’re the weapons of mass destruction
The weapons of mass destruction

Feds fling their dollars
Big business wrangles breaks
Policy to deep pockets
They give then they take
Lots of clubbers winning
From info they accrue
Money gushing everywhere
But seldom to me or you

The weapons of mass destruction
(We owe them a great debt)
Weapons of mass destruction

Unions pay their club dues
Plucked freshly from their waged
So many members valued
Based on how long they’ve been aged
Building “world-class” teams
Based on chronologic fit
How many Oscars have there been
When the casting’s all preset

It’s a never-ending party
Of special-interest-fueled mayhem
They’re takin’ care of everyone
Except for those not them
Most of them weren’t bad
They were just drawn … that … way
Gen XYZ picks up the tab
It’s the new American way

Politicians led by special interests on a mission
Takin’ care of everyone
Except for those deficient
They’re the weapons of mass destruction
(We owe them a great debt)
The weapons of mass destruction
