Hmm, the lyrics to my "Let's Leave Iraq" song seem to be holding up okay.

LET’S LEAVE IRAQ AND NEVER LOOK BACK
HOW DID WE GET SO FAR OFF THE TRACK?
PREEMPTIVE WARS RUN BY CHICKEN HAWKS AND CORPORATE WHORES
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE GET OUT OF IRAQ?

PLEASE DON’T TELL ME, IT’S ABOUT NATIONAL SECURITY
THEN WHY ARE THINGS 10 TIMES WORSE THAN THEY OUGHT TO BE?
PERHAPS YOU CAN SELL, YOUR GOOD INTENTIONS IN HELL
BUT DON’T TRY AND RUN THAT JIVE BY ME

9-11 WAS CYNICALLY HIJACKED BY THE NEO-CONS
THEY USED IT TO GET WHAT THEY WANTED ALL ALONG
AND, BABY, THAT WAS WRONG.

LET’S END THIS WAR AND SHOW BUSH THE DOOR
I DON’T WANT TO BE MISLED ANYMORE
YOU KNOW WE’VE BEEN HAD, IT’S TIME TO GET MAD
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE END THIS WAR?
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE END THIS WAR?
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE END THIS WAR?

Cool, a song lyric thread! Here's one:

Bush Was Right
Written by: Frank Highland

Freedom in Afghanistan, say goodbye Taliban
Free elections in Iraq, Saddam Hussein locked up
Osama’s staying underground, Al Qaida now is finding out
America won’t turn and run once the fighting has begun
Libya turns over nukes, Lebanese want freedom, too
Syria is forced to leave, don’t you know that all this means

Chorus
Bush was right!
Bush was right!
Bush was right!

Democracy is on the way, hitting like a tidal wave
All over the middle east, dictators walk with shaky knees
Don’t know what they’re gonna do,
their worst nightmare is coming true
They fear the domino effect, they’re all wondering who’s next

Repeat Chorus

Ted Kennedy – wrong!
Cindy Sheehan – wrong!
France – wrong!
Zell Miller – right!

Economy is on the rise kicking into overdrive
Angry liberals can't believe it's cause of W's policies
Unemployment's staying down, Democrats are wondering how
Revenue is going up, can you say "Tax Cuts"

Repeat Chorus

Cheney was right, Condi was right,
Rummy was right, Blair was right
You were right, we were right, “The Right” was right and
Bush was right
Bush was right

But can you dance to it?
Seriously, the line "Democracy is on the way, hitting like a tidal wave All over the middle east" is an example of a line that didn't hold up so well.

Great song! Did you ever record it? Is it possible to hear it?

As for the Bush-Kiss-Ass song, it errs in the very first line -- "say goodbye to Taliban". They seem not to have left. And read yesterday's Oregonian, Friedman's column, on why Libya gave up its nukes.

That song was recorded and there's even a DVD. I put it on local cable access and sent it around to some of my contacts in the world outside of Oregon. One person who liked it?
I better not say but he had red hair.
At least when he played for the Blazers it was red.

J.R. Rider had red hair when he played for the Trailblazers?

PS - I'm the former "anonymous" right-wing Nazi that has been commenting here for a couple of weeks. I figured laurelhurstdad at least needed more of a persona to lob his witless personal attacks at.

Welcome Butch. It does make it easier. Sometimes I repeat stuff not knowing if it's the same Anonymous or not.

Frankly, I think you're holding your own.
