Howard Dean To Bring Christmas Cheer To Troops — Satire By Scott Ott

Democrat National Committee (DNC) Chairman Howard Dean will join the USO Christmas tour this month, bringing holiday cheer to troops in Iraq with an inspiring musical message of hope entitled “We’ll Retreat ‘fore Christmas.”

“Like all Democrats, I support our troops,” said Mr. Dean, who yesterday told WOAI radio[1] in San Antonio, Texas, that Iraq is another Vietnam and that President George Bush lied to Congress. “I look forward to hearing the cheers of the troops as I sing of the futility of their mission.”

Mr. Dean treated reporters to a few verses of the title song from his show, sung to the tune of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” with the following lyrics:

We’ll retreat ‘fore Christmas
far from Ramadi
Bombs will blow, but we’ll just go
and leave it to Zarqawi

Christmas eve will find you
in the land o’ the free
We’ll retreat ‘fore Christmas
glad we’re not I-ra-qi
