"A New Gilbert and Sullivan Song About George W. Bush as a Take-Charge Guy

Calvin Trillin

I keep my slicker by my bed, and, sure, my bullmike's handy too.
With these, it looks as if I've got the slightest notion what to do.

On Air Force One my staff and I will fly to every storm we're fighting.
My staff's prepared. They've studied film. They've got technique. They know backlighting.

You'll soon forget the FEMA hacks appointed, one and all, by me.
A leader is a man who finds a photo opportunity.

CHORUS

No matter what, there'll always be a photo opportunity.
And otherwise, I'm always free for loafing with impunity.
Because, you see, we all agree: With Karl there to fine tune it, he
Can find a way to picture me at one with the community.
No matter what, there'll always be a photo opportunity. "
