A Song for Bush

If Liberia can have a song for lame duck Bush why cannot Taliban have one?

Imagine a pop hit by The One Eyed Band, led by the one and only Mullah Omar on a single string Guitar formed from an old Enfield 12 bore accompanied with Mullah Daadallah on drums and with Baitallah Mahsud clapping a la qawwals:

oye khocha wai wai
oye khocha wai wai
tum humko pasand aai
hum tumhare saath aai
tum jhuko, hum aai
oye khocha wai wai

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) -- In a humid rehearsal studio, Liberia's pop queen is practicing her newest single -- a song called "Thank you" to be released for President Bush's visit here next week.

US President George W. Bush speaks on the eve of the planned five-nation trip to Africa.

Her head tilted back, Juli Endee pulls the microphone close and belts out, "Thank you, George Bush."

"Thank you for democracy," she croons over the electric guitar, shaking her hips wrapped in yellow cloth. "Thank you for the rule of law," she sings. "Thank you for debt relief."

Bush is scheduled to head to Africa on Friday for a visit that will bring him to one of the few parts of the globe where people still have a favorable view of America. A recent Pew poll of 47 nations found that America's popularity is exceptionally high in Africa, where some hold the U.S. in higher regard than Americans do themselves.
