The War In Iraq Is A Good War

Austin Cline has a post up at General JC Christian's place regarding the many fighting-age, able War Supporters and their undying committment to not fight in said war. The theme is important for many reasons: the blatant hypocrisy--i.e. an expression of agreement that is not supported by real conviction--the psychological disconnect, the unabashed sense of entitlement, the Jonah Goldbergizing* of an entire generation of people who are very comfortable never putting their own money where their mouths are.

So, yeah, I wrote some lyrics. Perhaps I was inspired by an angelâ„¢...

The War in Iraq Is a Good War

The war in Iraq is a good war
Almost the best there ever was
It's far away from where I play
It lets me keep my buzz

I watch it on the TV
I help keep them ratings high
We wouldn't want it cancelled
Advertisers all know why

So here's to endless warfare
Against Iraqi scum
We will liberate them
While I sit on my bum

(chorus)
I support the troops, oh yeah
I support them all the way
I support them from my bedroom
It's the American way
I support the effort
We will end all that is wrong
Let's toast them with a sixer
And two more from the bong, boys
Two more from the bong

The reasons for the war are clear
Any fool can comprehend
We're liberating terrorists
So they can become Republicans

They'll wrap themselves in glory
When they join the GOP
Iraq will be a Red State
Where billionaires run free

And just like young Republicans
They will show the world some class
Like us they'll tattoo Limbaugh
On the boils on their ass

(repeat chorus)

Everybody!

The war in Iraq is a good war
Almost the best there ever was
It's far away from where I play
It lets me keep my buzz

I watch it on the TV
I help keep them ratings high
We wouldn't want it cancelled
Advertisers all know why

So here's to endless warfare
Against Iraqi scum
We will liberate them
While I sit on my bum

(repeat chorus)

*Jonah doesn't look like the image from the link. I mean to say, he doesn't look like the image from the outside. Not anymore, anyway. He's actually in much better physical shape these days. Our nation's military would take him in a neocon heartbeat.
