Another Good Song

found in a comment on Eric Alterman’s Altercation is by Brian Donohue based on Paul Simon’s Slip Slidin’ Away. (My guess as to title. Brian doesn’t say which Paul Simon song.)

Flip-flopping away, flip-flopping awa–aay…
You know the nearer the destination the more he’s flip-flopping away…

I know a man, wants a hundred years’ war
He got swift-boated by Karl Rove
And then came back for some more.

He says “on good days, you can walk through Baghdad…
When you’re surrounded by a battalion
You can go on flip-floppin’ away…”

Flip-flopping away, flip-flopping awa–aay…
You know the nearer the destination the more he’s flip-flopping away…

Can you guess who the man is in the song? Why, it’s none other than that master flip-flopper, and not so darling of the far right, John “Hundred Year War” McCain. Easy to guess, eh?
