Stuck in Iraq For You, Here I Am

Stuck In The Middle With You --original lyrics

Well, I don't know why I came here tonight

I got a feelin' that something ain't right

I'm so scared in case I fail in my lines of punch
And I'm wonderin' how I'll get rid o' this ketchup stain from lunch
Clowns to left of me, Republicans to the right
Here am I stuck in Iraq with you


Yes, I'm stuck in the middle of Iraq with you
And I'm wonderin' what it is I should do
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face
Losin' control, I'm all over the place
Clowns to left of me, Republi-jokers to the right
Here am I stuck in Iraq with you

Well, we started off with nothing
And we're proud we're self-made men
And our enemies they all come a crawling
Slap knife in our backs and say
Please, please

Well, I'm stuck in the middle of Iraq with you
And I'm wonderin' what it is we should do
Is it cool to go piss on the floor?
Cut and run doesn't seem to work anymore
Clowns to left of me, Republicans to the right
Here am I stuck in the middle of Iraq with you

Well, we started off with nothing
And we're proud that we're self-made heroes
And our friends they all come on like squirrels
Slap us on the back and say
Please, mister please (vote for me)

Well, I don't know why I came here tonight
I got a feelin' that something ain't right
I'm so scared in case I fall off this podium
And I'm wonderin' how I'll get away with my bombastic tea-todiums
Clowns to left of me, Publicators to the right
Here am I stuck in the middle with you
Here I am stuck in Iraq with you
Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you
Stuck in Iraq with you

(Yes I apologize and know we're all "Plenty Smart".)

(We were "Plenty Smart" before we got "Good 'n Dumb".)

(We voted for Fear before we cut and ran away from it.)

(Remember me in 2008)

(I'll be runnin for head of state)

(And for sure we'll still be stuck on that date)

(Stuck in Iraq with you, stuck in the middle of nothing new)

Apologizing for the Truth
This editorial explains that "Kerry, who just issued a needless apology, would never admit this-- because he'd inevitably be called "anti-troop" again-- (mostly by people who have never served, and the mainstream media would lend credence to these idiots)-- but there actually was truth in his misstatement."

Saskboy,
No problem.
You were one of the few out there who seemed to understand that "plateau" means "no peak".

Are you a language major?

Kerry's Botched Joke keeps going and going

Kerry's quip just before the November 7 [2006] midterm elections that those who don't study hard "get stuck in Iraq" not only forced him into isolation in the campaign's final days, it rekindled criticism about his failure to beat a war-plagued president two years ago. It also highlighted a shallowness to what he and his aides still considered to be widespread public support.
