The Lyrics

This is not about creationism, or even "God causes evolution" (which is how I define "intelligent design," but not how the wingnuts define it). If you still support Georgie Bush, this column probably won't open your eyes, but read it anyway: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/07/opinion/07friedman.html
Bush:
Well, it's all right
writhing around in the sleaze.
Well, it's all right
because I'm gonna do what I please.
Well, it's all right.
I'm doing the best I can.
Well, it's all right.
The Presidency, it's hard work, man!

America:
He can sit around and wait for the phone to ring
(Intelligent design)
for Cheney or his dad to tell him everything.
(Intelligent design, some design)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow'll bring.
(Intelligent design)
That's our phony king.

Bush:
Well, it's all right
even if you say I'm wrong.
Well, it's all right.
Gotta be decisive and strong.
Well, it's all right.
It's not like I'm Bill Clinton laying.
It's all right.
I cut short my vacation a day!

America:
Maybe somewhere down the road a ways
(Intelligent design)
he'll think about the damage he's done in these days.
(Intelligent design, some design)
Until then, here's all we see in his gaze
(Intelligent design)
Purple haze.

Bush:
Well, it's all right
even if push comes to shove.
Well, it's all right.
That's what I'm told by Karl Rove!
Well, it's all right.
Everything'll work out fine.
Well, it's all right.
Part of my intelligent design!

America:
SUV, be ashamed of the car you drive.
(Intelligent design)
Take it down to New Orleans
and keep some folks alive.
(Intelligent design, some design)
And it does matter if Bush is on your side.
(Intelligent design)
He ain't, he lied.

Bush:
Well, it's all right
even if you float away.
Well, it's all right.
The war, we're still winning today!
Well, it's all right.
Yeah, I know that Osama lives.
Well, it's all right.
Check out this new tax cut I give!

Well, it's all right
writhing around in the sleaze.
Well, it's all right
because I'm gonna do what I please.
Well, it's all right.
My halo will forever shine.
Well, it's all right.
So says my intelligent design!

5's. Keep it up. Reading you bush basher parodies makes my day. Esp. when it's been a rough one like today.

:-D
I get the point: if GWB is the end-product, then the design doesn't exactly look intelligent, does it?
