The Lyrics

The Iraq conflict has often been described as an "operation"...well, I've taken the analogy a bit further...
Seems liberty
's like surgery
And now Dr. Bush is chargin' for the pain
He says he will
Cure the world's ills
But what Dr. Bush is chargin' is insane
Provides the pills, supplies the crutch
But Dr. Bush is chargin' too much
Seems liberty
's like surgery
And Dr. Bush is chargin', and we're payin'

You're seeing spots?
Just take your shots
If you're good then nice nurse Cheney'll give you sweets
Peel the skin back
Reveal Iraq
A cancer that good medicine defeats
If you're feeling sick and strained
Some rhetoric to numb the pain
Seems liberty
's like surgery
And Dr. Bush is chargin' you again

He'll cut it out
Best not to shout
It's quicker if you don't make a fuss
Oh what joy!
The scalpel he'll deploy
But your aftercare he won't discuss
Hey, don't be so sappy; can't you see?
This is for your benefit, it's true...
Seems liberty
's like surgery
But Dr. Bush is carvin'...for you!

Very clever, Kristof :-)

Clever parody, Kristof, and I'll give you a triple-5, even though ol' Saddam was a boil that needed to be lanced (eventually, at least).

The Bush misadministration--the HMO of federal gov't. Took the Hypocritic Oath and continue to do much harm.

great parallels, Kristof, with bite. It's a bit like a political cartoon - you always see new angles through working a metaphor - 555
