Let's Drop The Big One

Since I am too tired to post a coherent list of reasons why the current conflicts in the Middle East and the situation with North Korea can all be directly tied to GWB's decision to invade, occupy and bog down our entire Armed Services in Iraq, I think I'll take the lazy way out and let Randy Newman entertain you with a musical rendition of the entire Bush Doctrine.

Hit it Randy!

From the album (yes, it was still an album back then, not a CD) "Sail Away"
Words and music by Randy Newman (probably need some sort of ASCAP verbiage here to completely cover my ass..wish I knew what it was)

No one likes us, I don't know why.
We may not be perfect, but Heaven knows we try.
But all around, even our old friends put us down.
Let's drop The Big One, and see what happens.
We give them money, but are they grateful?
No, they're spiteful, and they're hateful.
They don't respect us, so let's surprise them.
We'll drop The Big One, and pulverize them.
Asia's crowded, Europe's too old.
Africa's far too hot and Canada's too cold.
South America stole our name.
Lets drop The Big One, there'll be no one left to blame us.
We'll save Australia ... ... don't want to hurt no Kangaroo.
We'll build an All-American 'musement park there, they got surfin' too!
BOOM goes London, and BOOM Paree,
More room for you and more room for me!
And every city, the whole world round, will just be another, American town!
You wear a Japanese kamona babe! It'll be Italian shoes for me!
They all hate us anyhow!
So let's drop The Big One now.
Lets Drop The Big One now!

Nice. It's been forever since I heard that one but I think I'll look it up now. Pretty apt after all . . .

I think you would have had plausible deniability if you hand't mentioned ASCAP. But since you did, I'm afraid there's no helping you. Knock, knock... here come the lawyers.
