Sins of Commission?

C thought that the Pentagon officials glib condensation of strategic choices for Iraq sounded like such trivial sloganeering. In fact, with all the repetition the phrase has been getting, it might as well be a song hook. Sounds like a job for the parody department . . . .

Apologies to J.R. Cobb, R Whitely and the Tams.

Go Big, Go Long or, Go Back Home
(to the tune of the "beach" standard
Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy )
(DMinor)

Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home
Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home


Old Jim Baker is in town, it's Commission time
(Commission Time)
The leaks come, 'bout every day down the old grapevine
(old grapevine)

Will a different game plan for the troops deployed
make sure they are best employed?

Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home
Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home

Don't let this slip away
How long now should we stay?

The day to day press is often full of unimportant things
(Important things)
Like Brittany and her Fed-Ex or Katie's ring
(Katie's ring)

But troops over there a half a world away
They're gonna need a strategy

So Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home
Go Big, Go Long or, just go back home
(repeat and fade)
