The Wonderful Wizard of US
The House thinks the Senate is the cowardly lion, and the Senate thinks the House is the scarecrow without a brain...But here at Blognonymous we say: Similarities between the US government and the famous children's novels don't stop there. We could easily populate the whole book:
- The Cowardly Lion: The US Senate - Full of bluster, sound and fury, but little else
The Scarecrow: The US House of Representatives - Brainless, senseless, clueless
The Tin Woodsman: Vice President Cheney - Lacking even the smallest modicum of sympathy that you get from having a heart
The Wicked Witch of the White House: Karl Rove - Willing to release the flying monkeys at the smallest provocation
Feingold The Good Witch of North: Willing to take all kinds of principled stands, but it's still not clear whether or not he can get Dorothy home
The Wicked Witch of the Hill: Tom DeLay - The house has already been dropped on him
The Munchkins: The Political Right - Following the yellow alert level right to the emerald Islamic quagmire
Dorothy: The Political Left - Hoping to make it home in the midterms
- The Wizard of US: President Bush - Secretive, paranoid, grasping at the levers of power but not really knowing what they do
Cartledge, if you wake up, please wake me too. This is the worst nightmare I've ever had.
There's no place like jail. There's no place like jail.
If Dorothy represents the Democratic party, I hereby cast Hillary Clinton as the Apple Tree:
Scarecrow: Come along Dorothy. You don't want any of those apples.
Apple Tree: Are you hinting my apples aren't what they ought to be?
Scarecrow: Oh, no! It's just that she doesn't like little green worms!

"She had us under a spell"
Snave, Lew, I think that we've got enough cast now that we're ready to go off Broadway...way, Way, WAY off Broadway.
I don't know if you've seen this-just in case you haven't:
Who would have guessed the offspring of said witch would become the W O' US.
