Look! Over There!
There was a little embarrassment (not much, but a little) when Bush finally admitted that he's been bugging americans without seeking court orders, (and just what is anyone goin' to do about it?)
There will no doubt be concern when Al Gore made an inspired speech where he suggested just what ought to be done about it.
So, it's interesting that Bin Laden chooses this moment to pop out of the woodwork, just when the american people need a bit of 'focus'.
(Think about it: would the average american be inclined to follow advice given by Osama Bin Laden? Do you not think he might be aware of the likely attitude?)
I shall take a paranoid appraoch, and predict that some new and dastardly plot is about to be foiled in the nick of time (or, to be truly machiavellian, would have been *much* worse) only because a caring president and his helpers were listening in.
Sounds silly? Just look at what the Australian Government did recently to get its way (in full view, too)!
Fortunately, no one was fooled.
So, a silly ditty inspired by Osama Bin Laden's latest appearance.
(sung to the tune of 'Bring Back my Bonnie')
Osama's come out of the woodpile,
We've smuggled him under the bed.
he threatens big bangs to obscure that
his opposite number misled!
Phone tap! Phone tap! Let's listen to our enemy (tee hee!)
Phone tap! Phone tap! We wouldn't be talking of thee!?
So what if I have no court order?
Can I bomb Al-Jazeera today?
And I'm going to be here in oh-eight,
Despite what Al Gore has to say!
Phone tap! Phone tap! Let's phone tap our worries away (hey hey!)
Phone tap! Phone tap! Why is it no one wants to play?
