(AFP) Bush says Iran attacks reports ‘wild speculation’

(AP) Rumsfeld Won’t Speculate on Iran Plans

(NewYorker) The Iran Plans (Seymour Hersh)

Bush says he’s committed to diplomacy, but when has it been easier to believe he’s telling the truth instead of assuming right off the bat he’s lying through his tentacles? I got the idea for this last summer when the saber-rattling started, and I’d LOVE to do it as a video, but then I’d have to get permission from the Beach Boys and I don’t even know how to contact them. And yes, I do remember that there was a gung-ho rock version from the 70s, but I think it’s time for a remix, don’t you?

WOW, where do other cartoonists get this kind of energy? LOL they hire inkers and colorists! OK folks, Fred’n’Bert are safe in an undisclosed location and my GOOD FRIDAY cartoon is done. I’ll be taking Monday off since Sunday will be spent with family and friends, so I won’t be publishing until Wednesday. Have a happy Easter and gorge on mucho chocolate!

It’s been suggested I’ll get a better placement on Google if I include the words to this in my post so here goes:

Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
Let’s Bomb Iran, oh, that’s the plan. We’ll be lockin’ ‘n’ a-loadin’, things’ll be explodin’, Let’s Bomb Iran!
Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
Went to Iraq to find weapons of attack, couldn’t find a thing so we thought we’d take a swing and bomb Iran
Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
Oh we’ll be lockin’ ‘n’ a-loadin’, lots of stuff explodin’, Bomb IRAN
Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.

Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.
