OK - Follow Me Here....

I have a point, honest I do....I just have a unique path of getting there, so stick with me here.

One of my favorite movies is The Sound of Music. I still remember the first time I saw it in the theater. Anyway - one of my favorite songs in that movie is So Long, Farewell made up of different ways to say good-bye....I don't know why but I just really like it, always have.

Anyway - I'm sitting here watching FOX News, and they are talking about Ted Kenney's little speech Thursday. Yeah, it kind of pissed me off (to say the least). My next thought was that he needs to just go away, get lost - so long sucker........which lead me to the songs So Long, Farewell, and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover and just how many different ways I would like to tell Ted Kennedy (and a few others) Good Bye.

Here are a couple of ideas I had:

Ted Kennedy - I think an Irish toast is appropriate here:
Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!

Yeah - that about sums my thoughts up there - now Go AWAY!!!!

Howard Dean -
Just wipe off the sheen, Dean.
And shut the hell up.


Barbara Boxer -
Hmmmm....I think this Madonna song almost fits:
Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken? *Your hair is not combed*
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no
Walk away

*my variation* but it works, sorta

John Kerry -
Oh.....this is perfect......the chorus from a song called Winners and Losers
Are you happy now with all the choices you’ve made?
Are there times in life when you know you should’ve stayed?
Will you compromise and then realize the price is too much to pay?
Winners and losers, which one will you be today?

I could go on and on....really this is getting fun! But I'll end it here with this thought for all those that keep tearing down MY COUNTRY, picking at MY PRESIDENT, and slinging mud at MY MILITARY!

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, GOODBYE

The lyrics aren't exactly "family-friendly", but I do believe the band "Dope" wrote the perfect song for this:
