Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

These three stanzas supplement the four in O Tan Obama. I matched the sound of the title line only in O Tannenbaum. The first two lines of each stanza usually are repeated.
A tan Obama cannot warm
Or cool the planet's fever.
His carbon footprint even beats
The record of Al Gore's retreats.
A tan Obama cannot warm
Or cool the planet's fever.

A tan Obama cannot bend
The health-care cost curve downward.
Crones will not share their Medicare
With men whose hair is still all there.
A tan Obama cannot bend
The health-care cost curve downward.

A tan Obama has no balm
For Middle Eastern conflicts.
The Jews and Arabs won't agree
To treat each other equally.
A tan Obama has no balm
For Middle Eastern conflicts.

A tan Obama cannot glom
The hearts and minds of Muslims.
For surely they suspect that he
Jumped ship to Christianity.
A tan Obama cannot glom
The hearts and minds of Muslims.

He can't fool all of the world's peoples all of the time in this age of instant ubiquitous media.

We elect the worst among us and expect them to work miracles. Killing Taliban is the only way to lasting peace in Afghanistan, but I doubt that's what the Nobel committee had in mind when they awarded him the prize.

Patrick: "You can never kill an enemy. You can kill a man, but then his son becomes your new enemy." from the miniseries Roots. "Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you." --Jesus of Nazareth BTW, not a bad parody!

OMR: Nicht, dis ist eine lieder bomb. TJC: Thanks (if you contracted lexicographically excellent). Patrick: Remember when he said he'd negotiate? Fg: I'll do my best for you. ML: Ah, if only the Taliban followed JC's advice....

Melanie, you are right. People in that part of the world have long memories. Americans, especially politicians, are short-term thinkers, if what politicians do can be called thinking. It took 50 years to outspend the Russians into giving up (for the moment anyway). But there was no way our politicians were going to let us have the peace dividend. Islam was waiting in the wings to take the communists' place.
