DECISION NOT A METAPHOR FOR ANYTHING, THOUGH

FITSNews – March 24, 2007 – More than two years after it was originally released, the song “Over My Head (Cable Car)” by Colorado-based alt rockers The Fray has finally fallen out of favor with Katie Banks, aide to U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis. Banks says her decision to cut back on listening to the hugely-popular song (which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 last year) should not be seen as a metaphor for her boss’s position on the War in Iraq, however.

“Absolutely not,” Banks told FITSNews Saturday. “We are talking about two totally different Frays here. And just for the record, I’m not the one listening to Don Henley’s Boys of Summer like fifty gazillion times a day, twenty-three years after it came out.”

Ouch … guilty as charged. Anyway, speaking of that other “Fray,” Rep. Inglis decided yesterday to tow the party line on a key Iraq War vote in Congress, the latest in a full-scale damage control effort that has been ongoing ever since he initially opposed President Bush’s troop surge in the region.

You know, we felt Rep. Inglis’ initial vote against the troop surge was pretty courageous – if not indicative of his true feelings on the subject. That’s why it’s sad to watch him kowtowing to the usual nimrods in his district, people like Spartanburg GOP Chairman Rick Beltram and those of his ilk who breathe exclusively through their mouths and drag their knuckles on the ground when they walk. Not to mention can’t count.

Anyway, we think if you’re going to war you should “go to the mattresses.” You know, like the mob does. But America has lost its stomach for conventional wars, and couldn’t handle the P.C. fallout of going nuclear. And yes, that was two bad puns in the same sentence.
