Our Government is a bad sitcom


Come and listen to a story about a man named Dub

A poor oil man’s son, barely a silver spoon scrub,

Then one day he was shootin up some coke,

And up through his brain came a bubblin' hoax.

War that is,

black gold, all for me

Well the first thing you know

ol' dub's a dictator,

Neocons said all you lefties are just haters

Said Guantanamo is the place you ought to be

So they loaded up the truck and killed what was free.

our laws, that is.

signing statements, wiretaps.

The Corporate Pharisees!

Well now its time to say good-bye to Dub and his bloody crown.

And he would like to thank you folks fer kindly bowing down.

You’re all invited back again to this locality

To have a heapin helpin of his hospitality

War profiteering that is.

dying for your country’s rich.

Empty your pockets.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?

Why do you hate the Beverly Hillbillies, I mean, freedom?

That was awesome.
As I watched the video, I had a vision of starting a corporation that focuses on ensuring that no building, shiring, or monument is ever erected to "honor" George W. Bush.
With watchdogs and a legal team stationed around the country at the ready to file any sort of legal documentation that argues against any announced monument or honor.

Targa said...

Shiring? I meant to type "shrine".

Wow, I REALLY am hung over.

Fade said...

Hungover? Bad Targa! Bad! Bad! lol...

Well, can I assume you don't have an objection against the sewage plant that some SF lib group is trying to rename after dubya?

Fade said...

"Shiring" - no worry- Even Hobbits hate the dark lord of Shrubdor.

Targa said...

I think the sewage plant renaming is brilliant... and well deserved.
