    Air force One buzzes New York, this cries out for a parody song. I chose "Jet Airliner" by the Steve Miller band, and here is the first draft of the new lyrics. Please read and add better stuff if you can. These lyrics are from the pilot's perspective:

    Flyin' low, over WTC
    No damn idea what I'm doin
    Ridin along in this big ol jet plane I been
    thinkin bout whats wrong
    These idiots think it's a good idea
    to buzz the folks with air force one
    I coulda tole 'em it's a bad idea
    But ya know they'd fire me if I did

    big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oh big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say

    Photo op for the folks at home
    Cuz Obama is trusted
    But I'm tellin ya this just ain't the way
    I hope to hell its not me that gets busted
    Cuz my son could do this on photoshop
    Instead of usin a real seven-four-seven
    Ridin high I got tears in my eyes
    You know the folks goin thru hell
    as I fly thru the heavens

    big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oh big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say

    Panic scramble in New York Town
    They think this plane's comin down
    nine-eleven's still fresh in their minds
    Ya know their heads just keep on spinnin around
    And I did this with some hesitiation
    Cuz any idiot should surely see
    That you don't just fly around New York with that
    Superliner buzzin the city

    big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oh big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say

    Watchin this later on CNN
    They're tryin not to look disappointed
    They do their best to cheer for Obama
    But crap like this just makes it tougher
    If they'd just be honest with themselves
    They'd say what's really on their minds
    In-stead-they-try-to-blow-it-off-andmakefunof
    People askin what the hell were you thinking

    big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oh big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say

    Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oa big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say
    Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

    big ol jet airliner
    Ya know they're getting carried away-ay
    Woa-oh big ol jet airliner
    Got no words for what to say

    Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
    Carry Obama back home
    Oh, oh big ol jet airliner
    Cause the white house ain't where he belongs

    They should be afraid.... Very afraid. Don't you think the panic was pretty much an indictment of Obama's policy on the "overseas contingency?" These were after all, HIS people, the latte sipping uber-libs in Manhattan don't feel too safe do they?

    And they really shouldn't.

    I think the panic was more of an indictment of a plane flying over Manhattan.

    I don't think anyone was thinking about anyone's "overseas contingency".

    No, they were thinking "here we go again" even though Washington tells them they're "safer" now.

    LOL thanks! I tried to put myself in the pilot's shoes, you just know this is what he was thinking.

    To the tune 'My country 'tis of thee' (or should I say 'God Save the Queen')

    Statue of Liberty
    Got buzzed just yesterday
    By Air Foce One
    How much this Photo Op?
    $500k a pop?
    Cheaper to use Photoshop...
    (but much less fun).
