He’s having an excellent morning

Da Wege always has great links and, er, provocative commentary. But his muse this morning is George W. Bush, who invited us at his press conference to imagine Iraq without our occupation. This in turn led da Wege to imagine new lyrics to the Lennon – McCartney classic ballad Imagine. Da Wege wears his lyricist hat to the Spotty award ceremony in his honor. Here’s the first verse of the new Imagine. If you want to read, or even sing, the rest, you’ll have to go over to Norwegianity.

Imagine Iraq has nukes
It's easy if you close your eyes
Cooked intel to guide us
Friends in places high
Imagine all the people
Murdered someday.....

Remember, Gs and Gettes, a Spotty is awarded to the writer of a letter to the editor, an op-ed piece, a blog post or a comment that Spot wishes that he had written.
