Just Sit Right Back And You'll Hear A Tale
A tale of a fateful trip
That left from Andrews AFB
Aboard this flying ship
The mate was a mighty sailing man
The skipper brave and sure
They grabbed their cameras and set sail
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour
The coverage started getting rough
Scared people raised a fuss
The "furious" skipper turned and threw
The Air Force under the bus
The Air Force under the bus...

He's lucky someone didn't climb up on a roof and start taking pot-shots at it. Sheer stupidity.

Bravo! You made me laugh out loud at work!
The "skipper" photo is priceless.

Heheh. In related news, GM stock soared today when the Obama administration announced that the government will purchase 100,000 of their new line of clown cars.

Dude, this is awesome

You've outdone yourself!

I really doubt the POTUS knew anything about this, but someone on HIS staff made this happen. Not the Air Force.

But, BRAVO is also in order.
Posted by: Cullen at April 29, 2009 11:34 AM
Okay - that is excellent. The mate is what really got me... ROFLMAO.

Heh! Brilliant, Bingley!
We ought to flesh this out some more.....say, Hillary as "The Movie Star".

Don Surber is going to be envious.
Is the professor an unfilled cabinet position?
Posted by: Retread at April 29, 2009 02:32 PM
No, Larry Summers could be The Professor, seeing as he got into big trouble at Yale for saying women couldn't do math*
(*I exaggerate for humor here)
Question is, who's Mary Ann?

Er, strike that, replace "Yale" with Hah-vahd.
I never could keep my Ivies straight.

I really doubt the POTUS knew anything about this...
Then you'd be... wrong. The 747's used as AF1 don't go ANYWHERE without serious pre-planning and logistics. At some point, Obama signed off on it.

ricki, Summers is the captain since The Won has to be Gilligan. The professor actually had some brains so I think we have to keep looking.
I'm sure Michelle insisted on being both Mary Ann and Ginger.
I see AF1 is in St. Louis today so TOTUS can hold a townhall meeting, ahead of its sweeps week appearance tonight.

I think Napolitano could be Gilligan's twin.
Posted by: Mr. Bingley at April 29, 2009 03:31 PM
AHAHAHAHA!!! Brilliant Mr. Bingley! You should be touring.

Fantastic parody! (Hey, we gotta laugh or otherwise we'd be crying.)
