Safely O'er The Horizon

Safely o'er the horizon
Run away!
Can't face thugs like Zarqawi
Let's flee to Paraguay.

Somewhere o'er the horizon
Pr’haps down South?
Can't have our cold-blooded killers
Living from hand to mouth.

Some say I want to cut and run
Before the battle has been won
"What Fruit Loops!"
Let’s quit this jumping into hoops
And save our noble murdering troops
From Sca-ry Bad Men!

Safely o'er the horizon
Boy, oh boy!
Tell Osama we're losing
It's time to redeploy.

Somewhere o'er the horizon
Dreams come true
And our boys won’t be psychos
When this withdrawal's through.

Don’t worry ‘bout no civil war
So ragheads die? There’s plenty more
Where they’re from!
While Dubya read to a Pet Goat
Watash was out there getting votes
So don't call me dumb!

Somewhere o'er the horizon
Raptors fly
Clear 'cross I-ran and China
With fuel tanks that don’t run dry!

If happy little sorties fly
From Okinawa
Whyyyyy, oh why can't I?

BWAHAHAHA! Good one!

I always figured Murthatroid for the Cowardly-Lion-in-Reverse (he started out with courage, then lost it). My Dorothy would be Hillary, whose "No Place Like Home" mantra obviously refers to the White House. I can picture Kerry as the Scarecrow...he's never had a Brain. Tinman Dean and Toto Pelosi round out my cast. You?

Heh. Can't improve on that...but the Wizard...who shall we get for the wizard?

I always figgered Hildebeeste for the Wicked Witch of the East.

What other political allegories are out there besides Oz and Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged?

You should submit this to the Alliance PGH assignment.... not quite about killing terrorists, but close enough (just provide a lame excuse)...

Instapundo Delenda Est!

Obviously, the WWotW is Ann Coulter, at least from Dorollery's perspective. Or was she the one the House dropped on? Flying Monkeys? The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy!

I'm not worthy.

Well I had to look up Alliance PGH, Deb - that's how clueless I am :)

Alice, of course, and LotR.
