This Is Iron Eagle To Base, Come In Base

In these troubled and complicated times it's good to know that our elected leaders approach their responsibilities with a clear headed seriousness.

Leaders like Sam Johnson, a Republican from Texas who has personally volunteered to fly an F-16 to Syria and nuke the WMD's he is sure are buried there. We have to assume Mr. Johnson is serious too, because he told the story at a veterans’ celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, and before that to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House. We figure he had to be sober one of those times.

That pesky Saddam. That's so like him to hide WMD's in Syria. Just like we used to hide Playboys under our brother's bed. Until we found the ones dad had hidden behind the furnace that is.

There's no fooling Representative Johnson though, (who probably had much better hiding places for his Playboys) and to show he's a man who's willing to stand up for what he believes all he asks from the country he loves so much is a couple of nuclear devices, some jet fuel and a compass.

That's our government. Making the world safe for democracy, one Arab country at a time.
