Arab-American comedian Remy Munasifi, who has lampooned everything from “Occupy Wall Street” to the debt ceiling debt, uploaded a video to YouTube on Monday that parodies the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and indefinite detention.

The parody music video is based on the goofy Christmas tune “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” by Randy Brooks.

“Grandma got indefinitely detained now, coming home to visit Christmas Eve,” the libertarian-leaning comedian sings.

“You could say she had a right to counsel, but some folks in the Congress disagree.”
