Head for the Hills!

This just in: Dick Cheney is spending Election Day at a hunting retreat in South Dakota. All you liberals, watch out! He may be channeling Elmer Fudd in honor of the second Tuesday in November, "Oooh, I'm hunting Democwats!"

Okay, okay, I realize this is a bit of a mean-spirited shot, but it seems fairly bold to be planning such a trip after the ill-fated consequences of his last one. After he accidentally shot his lawyer-friend last year, the disc jockeys of a local radio station wrote a song in honor of the incident which I, somewhat guiltily, find amusing.

You can hear the song by going to this site http://www.bobrivers.com/audiovault/tunes/tunes.asp?Var=C, or if you don't particularly want to do that, just get the Aerosmith tune to "Janie's Got a Gun" in your head and follow along with the lyrics...


Cheney's Got a Gun
(Parody of Janie’s Got a Gun by Aerosmith)

Dick Cheney’s got a gun
Dick Cheney’s got a gun
The safety’s come undone
Squinting in the Texas sun

What did our leader do?
Who’d he put a bullet through?
They say when Cheney goes to Texas
You’ll find him huntin’ fish and game

His buddy had it comin’
Cuz when Cheney’s got a gun
He’s just not that good at takin’ aim

Cheney’s got a gun
Dick Cheney shot someone
Cindy Sheehan better run
Better watch her liberal buns
Tell him that the war’s not through
He’ll probably put a hole in you

He tracked a little bitty birdie
Hopin’ to blow out its brains
They say the spell that he gets under
From double barrel thunder
Makes his eyes pop out like he’s insane

Run away, run away from the Vice President
Run away, run away, run from Dick Che-ee ay-ee nee

Dick Cheney’s got a gun
The safety’s come undone
Cindy Sheehan better run
He’s a weapon of mass destruction
Cheney shot someone

Now, get out there and vote, people! Regardless of your political leanings, make it count.

Too funny, and very scary. Maybe he’ll be hunting down George after the election. After all, George is the reason why the Republicans are in trouble.

I hope I'm doing the happy dance tomorrow.

I just can't believe there is actually hope for us now.. Senate and House both ours, the first female speaker ever.. Rumsfeld resigns (as in THANK GOD) AND Britney files for divorce. People are getting a clue! How amazing is that?! :)
