Oh, hey, what's this? al-Sadr is going to stage some special show in honor of Condi? Neat! That's so totally nice! I assume they're going to totally greet Pantomime George and Pantomime Condi as liberators 'n' stuff. Uh, oh! Hey, you crazy kids, keep those things away from the fire:
Oh no! They burst into flames! What could have caused such an unfortunate accident? I'm sure the people are scrambling around, looking for extinguishers. Oooooh, too late:
What's the moral of this story? I dunno. Something about fire-retardant pajamas, maybe?
But you know what? I bet that McCain/Palin supporters will be putting on superfun puppet shows just like this dedicated to Obama any day now! It's bound to be more delightful than, say, shooting a bear in the head and covering it with Obama signs. That kind of humor is just too broad for my tastes.
Um, I should probably clarify that I don't really like puppet shows like this.
