The Lyrics

They're printin' paper up for cash.
Against Dick's lackey, a backlash.
We are goin' into year four,
So he's goin' out to sell the war.
Yakkin' Iraq, like a flack.

Callin' the press prophets of doom.
Tellin' us democracy'll bloom.
Admits it'll be a long fight,
Says at tunnel's end there's a light.
Yakkin' Iraq, like a flack.

You'd think McLellan would do that,
But his presentations are flat.
And his rap's a little too pat
Besides he sweats and is too fat.
Yakkin' Iraq, not that flack.

The pres. says, "We're not dirty crooks."
The press says, "So, let's see the books."
Few believe he can turn the tide.
Poll numbers continue to slide.
Yakkin' Iraq, like a flack.

Yakkin' Iraq, yakkin' Iraq,
Acts like a flack, acts like a flack,
Gettin' much flak, gettin' much flack,
Yakety yak, handin' us crap.

Are you saying that Bush is trying to say, "I am not a crook"? We've heard that before, and it wasn't true then, either.

a fun sing-a-long

MP, Bush thinks he's Reagan, but he's Nixon without the brain. Thanks to you and Alvin.

Title switch gets the coveted "Why didn't anyone else think of that?" award. JAB always busy; never a Coaster. 5 Yaks.

This week, President George W. Bush's tremendous speeches and adept handling of questions from the public and from the moronic, ultra-liberal jerks in the media (including the zombie, Helen Thomas) have shown once again that we are privileged to be living through one of the top five presidencies in U.S. history. It's fantastic how America elected and re-elected Mr. Bush, even though he had to battle not only Demo(n)cRat candidates (Gorey Al and Monsieur Jean Kerry), but also that 85% of the media that voted for Slick Willy in 1996. Yes, folks, through unfortunate circumstances, the media are overwhelmingly liberal (controlling three of the four major TV networks), almost all the major newspapers, the Hollywood establishment, the newsmagazines, nearly all of "academia," etc.. But it has been so delicious to watch turkeys like Barry soiling their drawers on almost every recent election day, as the media proves incapable of fooling the American people, who put the White House and the houses of Congress into the hands of the "good guys." Even most of the governors' mansions and state houses have been ripped away from the pro-death, mental-midget liberals who once had them. One would think that liberals like Barry might, by now, have figured out that life is trying to teach them that their positions are morally and intelliectually bankrupt -- meaning that they need to change without delay.

Lurker, you are one demented MF.

Really good parody.

Bush has never handled anything adeptly, Lurker, least of all questions from people who disagree with him… now 67 percent of the American people. And if he’s one of the top five, who the hell are the other four? I’m guessing you put Abe Lincoln in the bottom five. The media is overwhelmingly conservative. ABC is owned by rat-fink Michael Eisner, CBS by Westinghouse, NBC by Jack Welch’s GE, and Faux News but Rupert “Gets Away With” Murdoch. Major newspapers? You mean like the New York Times of William Safire and David Brooks? The Washington Post of Jim Glassman and Michael Kelly? Have you ever actually read a newspaper, or are you as literarily lazy as your zero-hero Georgie? And before you accuse someone of being “intelliectually bankrupt,” learn how to spell “intellectual.” Thanks to Georgie Bush, we’re already financially bankrupt. And to you, Dr. Freud, I say you're close; in fact, he's demented enough to be TWO demented MFs.
