From the “Axis of Evil” to the “Age of Nefarious”

Different tune, new lyrics, but the same old song?

(Remember the 60s rock-musical Hair?  Here’s a 21st century parody of its hit song The Age of Aquarius.)


The health care bill has finally passed.

Rays of hope for the economy.

“Too big too fail” may be too big to fight.

So let’s turn to foreign policy!

This is the dawning of the Age of Nefarious.

The Age of Nefarious.

Ne-fa-rious!

Ne-fa-rious!

Obama  and Medvedev  just signed

The “new START” nuclear treaty.

Will the Senate really let it pass

And keep up our end of the NPT?

This is the dawning of the Age of Nefarious.

It’s so precarious.

Ne-fa-rious!

Ne-fa-rious!

“Axis of evil”  David Frum

Has been drummed from AEI, we see.

Has he joined the State Department team

Writing briefs for PJ Crowley?

This is the dawning of the Age of Nefarious.

It’s so precarious.

Ne-fa-rious!

Ne-fa-rious!

Let’s go back to those great Cold War days

Of US strength and security!

Can Iran restore our golden age

Of true and certain “know thine enemy”?

This is the dawning of the Age of Nefarious.

It’s so precarious.

Ne-fa-rious!

Ne-fa-rious!

  1. Hard to know how to respond to the Obama-bashers.
    Ignoring them doesn’t feel quite right. But this
    hits the mark with humor. Thanks for sharing.
