Very good vent guys! Nice singing too..

The irony of the peace prize winner wanting to kill Bush…you couldn’t make it up…

happyhead on July 26, 2006 at 9:54 AM

Let me get this straight…

If someone hates you so badly that they want to kill you and wipe out your way of life; money, land and saying please will not help?

Great vent and a perfect song for your satire.

brtex on July 26, 2006 at 10:05 AM

Well Done Hotair!
Now we can say let us round them all up and GITMO they will go.
Lock them up play music very loud and the song should be :
Or { I’M PROUD TO AN AMERICAN }But no food given to them just hell and maybe they can talk their way out of it…HA HA

alyce on July 26, 2006 at 10:05 AM

Hey Michelle,
Give your kids their toys back – don’tcha know that’s how wars start?

Wander on July 26, 2006 at 10:18 AM

Oh if Hitler were alive today… we would see pictures and video of Jimmuh all cozy up in the Eagle’s Nest sipping Schnaps and thanking Adolph for the nice set of Human Skin Lamp Shades he just received as a Gift.

Is there one terrorist, dictator, or just an overall dirt-bag that Jimmuh isn’t smiling with in a photo-op these days??

“All we can sayyyyyyyy… is give the Final Solution a chanceeeeeeeeee” —Jimmy hand in hand singing with Adolph and Mussilini.

I am itching with excited curiosity as to how Ventless BoB will warp this.

allie on July 26, 2006 at 10:32 AM

And so begins the tumultuous career of The Plastic HotAir Band.


speed647 on July 26, 2006 at 10:32 AM

That was brave guys. And I’m not talking about confronting the terrorism with satire!

What do you call your band the Ventilators?

Ventilator def. A device that circulates fresh air and expels stale or foul air.

Drtuddle on July 26, 2006 at 10:34 AM

I like the ventilators!

Great name!!!1

EricPWJohnson on July 26, 2006 at 10:48 AM

Great definition, too, Drtuddle.

Melba Toast on July 26, 2006 at 10:51 AM

A photo of Hillary kissing Suha Arafat would have been a nice addition to the montage of terrorist appeasers. Evil kissing evil. Well done, as usual.

roninacreage on July 26, 2006 at 10:51 AM

LOL, loved it!!

StephC on July 26, 2006 at 11:04 AM

Great, as usual. Excellent choice of appease prize fools to feature.

wcarr on July 26, 2006 at 11:14 AM

Durka Durka.

BelchSpeak on July 26, 2006 at 11:19 AM

Funny, clever, and absolutely right.

Plus, Michelle sang kinda well, didn’t she?

Fatrap on July 26, 2006 at 11:22 AM

Let’s see if that turned off the bold.

Great vent! That ‘tunk’ ‘tunk’ ‘tunk’ sounded almost like thumping the hollow head of a moonbat.

Tricky lyrics to sing too – how many takes did it take to get it so good?

KCSteve on July 26, 2006 at 11:23 AM

Ok, when are you guys going to make the .mp3 of this available for download? Hadji Girl was the first song downloaded to my new iPod I received for my birthday last month, but I need more conservative hits.

Great work though … in another lifetime, you two could have been great hippies, had you been willing to eschew certain things (e.g., bathing, grooming, and so forth).

thirteen28 on July 26, 2006 at 11:23 AM

OH MY!!!!! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! The best Vent EVER! ya’ll ROCK!

pullingmyhairout on July 26, 2006 at 11:24 AM

why is everything in bold?

pullingmyhairout on July 26, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Yeah, she did. Go Team Ventilators! \/

Savage on July 26, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Those that accuse Islam of being violent should be beheaded on videotape?

Reality Check on July 26, 2006 at 11:33 AM

please pardon my ignorance (you should be used to that by now), but who is Michelle’s band-mate?

..and I whole-heartedly agree with thirteen28, the .mp3 needs to be distributed everywhere ..

-Fat Old Guy- capitalist PIG

Fogpig on July 26, 2006 at 11:46 AM

Wonderful vent, very funny and enjoyable

I give it five durkas and a jihad

Defector01 on July 26, 2006 at 11:59 AM

That’s rock star Bryan Preston.

And come on, people. Don’t say we sang “well.” We were mocking John and Yoko on the fly. It’s supposed to be bad! Er, I hope Bryan agrees. :)

Here’s the lyrics, fyi:

Give jihad a chance

One two a one two three four

[Peace laureate Betty Williams]
Ev’rybody’s talking about
terrorism Islamism patriotism hateriotism fascism bushism
This-ism, That-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m
All she is saying is give murder a chance,
All she is saying is give murder a chance,

[Peace laureate Arafat]
Eveybody’s talking about martyrdom dirty bomb car bomb
Fatah bomb Hamas bomb Al Aqsa bomb
Bomb bomb child bomb
All he was saying was give terror a chance
All he was saying was give terror a chance

[Peace laureate Carter]
Let me tell you now
Negotiation hesitation mediation contemplation
Flagellation United Nations Machinations Flatulations
All he is saying is give appeasement a chance
All he is saying is give appeasement a chance

[“Peaceful” warriors for Islam]
Everybody’s talking ‘bout
Katyusha Hezbollah Syria Dawa Ahmedinijad Allah
Allah Allah Allah
All they are saying is give jihad a chance
All they are saying is give jihad a chance

All they are saying is give jihad a chance
All they are saying is give jihad a chance

Michelle on July 26, 2006 at 12:00 PM

Wonderful song…it had me in tears…

noodlehead on July 26, 2006 at 12:12 PM

Yes, Michelle, I agree. If we had sought to be good, er, someone else would have played guitar.

Bryan on July 26, 2006 at 12:30 PM

Mocking my heroes John and Yoko? Just like you Malkinites to denigrate the top progressive thinkers of the 60s! Yoko is the best singer ever!!!! I’m going to cry now, sniff….


ScottG on July 26, 2006 at 12:38 PM

How come the video isn’t showing up for me?

Patrap on July 26, 2006 at 1:06 PM


Patrap on July 26, 2006 at 1:11 PM

Wow….Michelle… You sound pretty good…:)
Look so cute playing a hippie chick…:)
You both did a good job…
Great video, as usual….

dec5 on July 26, 2006 at 1:16 PM

Loved this vent, and it’s a perfect satire on the old Anti-war protest songs. The points you make throughout with the lyrics and pictures are fantastic. Never let up, Michelle, AllahP., and Bryan. Can I make a request? Parody the Mammas & the Pappas?

DakRoland on July 26, 2006 at 1:19 PM

can’t wait to get home and watch it.
Maybe we all should start sending our own parody versions of songs to the Ventilators for recording. I have this parody of “masters of war” running through my head…

Wyrd on July 26, 2006 at 1:24 PM

Maybe we all should start sending our own parody versions of songs to the Ventilators for recording. I have this parody of “masters of war” running through my head…

I like the idea, although I doubt a G-rated girl like Michelle would record any of the R-rated (or NC17) parodies I would inevitably come up with. I’m pretty sure that one of my father’s ancestor’s was the first person to create a dirty limerick ;)

thirteen28 on July 26, 2006 at 1:51 PM

To paraphrase Sir Charles Napier:

“You say it is your custom and religious duty to kill jews and infadels? We have a custom too. When people plot to kill us, destroy our buildings and cut our people’s heads off we locate where they are and drop 500lb bombs on that location followed by the most effective army in the history of the world.” Go ahead and prepare for your customs and we will prepare for ours.

Or perhaps ambassador James W. Gerard who said the following:

Everyone had a right to sympathize with any warring nation. But now that we are in the war there are only two sides, and the time has come when every citizen must declare himself American — or traitor!

We must disappoint the Germans who have always believed that the German-Americans here would risk their property, their children’s future, and their own neck, and take up arms for the Kaiser. The Foreign Minister of Germany once said to me “your country does not dare do anything against Germany, because we have in your country 500,000 German reservists who will rise in arms against your government if you dare to make a move against Germany.” Well, I told him that that might be so, but that we had 500,001 lamp posts in this country, and that that was where the reservists would be hanging the day after they tried to rise. And if there are any German-Americans here who are so ungrateful for all the benefits they have received that they are still for the Kaiser, there is only one thing to do with them. And that is to hog-tie them, give them back the wooden shoes and the rags they landed in, and ship them back to the Fatherland.

This concept seems to have disappeared. We can debate a war, disagree with a war, we can even loudly protest it. But the day those Hezbollah sleeper cells choose to rise, I suspect those lamp posts will come into use.

petertheslow on July 26, 2006 at 1:57 PM

You guys move to the head of the class.

Bic on July 26, 2006 at 2:00 PM

I have to say that the message is very clear and well put, but the singing…those of you who said it was good….well….I heard dogs barking and howling as I was playing it. :)

stacyharp on July 26, 2006 at 2:29 PM

arggh .. turn off the link tag .. did I fix it?

Fogpig on July 26, 2006 at 2:30 PM


That’s why it was so good – it’s a perfect match (in style) for the original and its brethren.

KCSteve on July 26, 2006 at 3:13 PM

sorry KC but while the message was outstanding the singing was not….I have to agree with Michelle….

I am going to send this to some of my John and Yoko friends…..great job guys….

robo on July 26, 2006 at 3:21 PM

.. but now I’m hungry .. I keep thinking of the original song which was about pizza, right?

Fogpig on July 26, 2006 at 3:24 PM

Even if the singing was considered bad it is in the Folk vein.It’s all about message and feel. It wasn’t better than John but don’t tell me it was worse than Yoko.

Ventilators rule!

Drtuddle on July 26, 2006 at 3:34 PM

Werent John and Yoko naked when they sang this? *LOL*
Great job! Made a hot as hades day full of meetings end on a “high” note *haha*

labwrs on July 26, 2006 at 3:41 PM

If you truely wanted to do the folk thing… grow your hair out, don’t shower for 6 months, get dreadlocks, smoke about 4 joints and add a line that blames Bush…

Oh yeah, that was EVERYONE at YearlyKos. Sorry!

dallas94 on July 26, 2006 at 4:08 PM

That was a thing of beauty. Well done!

techno_barbarian on July 26, 2006 at 4:33 PM


Michelle, once again you have shown that you are poetry in motion.

The song tells it all. And, Michelle, despite what you think, you DID sound very good!

Michelle, you should hold an alternative Woodstock perhaps. In this conservative version of Woodstock, people show up at the camp grounds high and naked, then as the concert progesses, they clear their heads and get dressed.

Or, at least, clear their heads. Must have SOME fun outdoors, you know.

The False Dervish on July 26, 2006 at 4:45 PM

Wow! Great Vent Michelle! (And Bryan!) These Vents are so diverse in format, each one is like a unique fingerprint.

Fingerprints are like snowflakes…………they’re so friggin’ cold!

Coronagold on July 26, 2006 at 6:54 PM

I like that glass factory plume. It looks like – Freedom!


woodcdi on July 26, 2006 at 7:20 PM

I am speechless. Kitschy, but soooo effective. The lyrics are funny, engaging, but the video just nails you right between the eyes. The dissonance of the two just pulls you right in. You get a piece of that clip on a cable show, people will rave from one side or another for weeks. I enjoy every vent, especially the laugh out loud ones..but this one…I was rapt. Really, a damn good job. Thanks again guys.

austinnelly on July 26, 2006 at 9:03 PM

Excellent Vent!! Loved the singing! By the end of the video, I had stopped laughing, though, and sat in awe of the people who firmly believe there is moral equality on the part of those who embrace jihad. Such as that foolish college student from CA who wrote the poem about Hezbollah being too much man for her. Her position, and the position of others like her, gives me a headache. My brow furrows and my eyes squint as I try to register why someone cannot connect the dots.
Anyway, thanks again for being brave.

Leiren on July 26, 2006 at 9:18 PM

I nominate Michelle and Bryan for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Wouldn’t Cindy be jealous? It should have been her prize to have.

The Hez-blinded college student, and a certain CA Congressman could do well to read this recap of noble Hez achievements. It takes a lot of testosterone to beat a young American diver to such pulp he has to be identified from prints. Didn’t stop Tom Ridge and Paul O’Neil from hanging out with another Hez lover at the too familiar notorous Dearborn eatery with recently charged owner.

Can’t we all just get along. Burka Burka. Everything happy like in Dearbornistan, Michigan

entagor on July 26, 2006 at 10:48 PM

I nominate Michelle and Bryan for the Nobel Peace Prize.

No way. I would NEVER nominate either one of them to share space with the terrorists and appeasers of terrorists that currently hold that title. Michelle and Bryan are on the same side as I am, not on the side of Iran, Syria, Lezballa, (oops, did I spell that wrong? Shame on me), Hamas, Al qiada, Al Newyork Times, Al Reuters, Al BBC, Al ABC, Al NBC, Al CBS, ectera. The list goes on and on. Someday, I hope America will wake up to who it’s enemies really are. Sadly, I find that mostly a slim hope.

In any case, GREAT VENT!

MalkinFan on July 26, 2006 at 11:17 PM

That was about a thousand times better than anything Yoko ever did.

mesablue on July 26, 2006 at 11:18 PM

I nominate the Hotair crew for the American Peace Prize. The statue will be Ron Reagan, ala this picture.

This prize is given only to patriotic men and women who are willing to look to the future, and to do what is neccasary to preserve America.

Now all I need is to find a sculpter and a few pounds of gold for the statue…

Wyrd on July 26, 2006 at 11:46 PM

Awesome Vent… love the satire and the singing.. great job Michelle & Bryan. Entertaining Vents are the best.. they are the easiest to get my less politically inclined friends and associates to find interest in…

RobertCSampson on July 27, 2006 at 12:29 AM

Killing is wrong, unless it’s against a Republican I guess.

hadsil on July 27, 2006 at 1:50 AM

Love it, you both did great!

Wild Thing on July 27, 2006 at 2:00 AM

Stars are born!!! Thanks for the laughs guys. We all need to VENT over this stuff,don’t we?

BradH on July 27, 2006 at 3:31 AM

Hey, did you hear the one about a wacky al-Qaeda operative (No. 2) declaring: “It is a jihad (holy war) for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails … from Spain to Iraq”? At least for starters.

No joke. Read about it in today’s news…

California Conservative on July 27, 2006 at 9:57 AM

Michelle – I liked the little film clip and I think you are the greatest – but, but, but don’t give up your day job just yet!!
