General David Petraeus has been named to succeed General McChrystal as Supreme Commander in Afghanistan. We remember how Obama and the entire liberal chorus screamed when President Bush sent him to Iraq to surge the fight and win the war, how they took full page ads in the New York Times sliming him as General BetrayUs. But that was then, and the last thing the left wanted was for a Republican to win a war, and so they did everything in their power to see that the country lost, because if the war was lost under the hated Bush then that would mean winning votes for Democrats, and who cares about the country losing a stupid little war when votes for Democrats are at stake. But now it looks like the Afghan war is being unaccountably lost under the leadership of the Light-giver, the Messiah, the sainted Barack Hussein Obama, and so Cincinnatus has been called upon to put down his plow and save the Anointed One the momentary distress of having lost a war, and therefore votes.  



General Petraeus now is back in charge

Fighting all the battles both the small and large

Giving clear directions to the gunny sarge

Yes he will show them how

Don’t you think it’s funny that when Pres’dent Bush

Sent him to Iraq Obama tried to push

For his sacking but he’s now in Hindu Kush

Yes O’s all for him now

Remember when the Olbermann and Soros clan

And every liberal chorus gal and chorus man

Said he was BetrayUs and did all they can

To get him stoned to death

But now the story’s changed and now he’s theirs for good

All that he’s BetrayUs was misunderstood

Now the left will fight just like they always would

But just don’t hold your breath



An Offer They Can’t Refuse

The United States has shifted its emphasis in Afghanistan from closing down the opium trade to controlling who runs it. Attacking the poppy fields led to too much local opposition. Killing the guys who control the drug trade and replacing them with more amenable drug dons not only does not annoy the poppy farmers, but puts us in charge of the operation. By declaring we have no problem with drug lords so long as they don’t belong to Al-Qaeda or the Taliban, we have enlisted on our side a group of people whose self interest it is to see us win. And that is all to the good.



So now we get to pick and choose

Just who’s to win and who’s to lose

I like it

The poppy fields will now be ours

Those gorgeous fields of bright red flowers

I like it

Of course with all that dough at stake

We know who’ll be in on the take

And though their thirst it will not slake

I like it

The Taliban without the cash

Will have to dig into their stash

I like it

And Afghan rulers on the sly

Will see their source of income dry

I like it

Our man Petraeus is a fox

He thinks of things outside the box

He’ll fake these guys out of their jocks

I like it


If this works, why can’t we decide that the United Auto Workers union is now in charge of the Mexican drug cartels. Based on what the UAW has done for General Motors, with the UAW in charge the drug problem in the US would disappear, since no one would want to buy their product.
