Ding! Dong!

Oh, how we’ve waited.

This marks my last blog entry of the Bush Administration. I struggled to find the right words to describe my emotions — then realized that others, including Yip Harburg, have already said all that needs to be said. Join me, please, in a chorus of “Ding! Dong! The Witch Is Dead!”

This is a day of independence,
For all the Munchkins and their descendants!

Which old witch? The wicked witch!

Sing it high! Sing it low! Let them know...

Be off, before someone drops a White House on you!
