Just enjoying the holidays and had a "what if" moment...what if a new version of The Wizard of Oz could be filmed using only cast members from politics in Washington, D.C. My thoughts:
Dorothy - Hillary Clinton...concern here would be when she has to click the heels of the ruby slippers 3 times and say "there's no place like home"...where would that really be?
Scarecrow - John Boehner...no brains and always using a "straw man" to cut his deals
Tin Man - Harry Reid...old, rusty, and heartless plus 'ole Harry would look cute blowing smoke out of his funnel cap
Cowardly Lion - Barrack Obama...should be the "King of the Forest", but would rather be an ostrich and bury his head in the sand
Toto - Marco Rubio - rubber stamp lapdog for the time being
Wicked Witch of the West - Nancy Pelosi....'nuff said
Professor Marvel - Mitch McConnell - just a phoney old fortune teller
Good Witch of the North - "good"...morally excellent; virtuous; righteous; honorable or worthy....? no one fits this profile ?
The Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz - "wizard"...a person of amazing skill or accomplishment...again, not one individual fits casting criteria
Mayor of Munchkinland - Barney Frank - retiring from Washington and can now reform Munchkinland with the Dodd-Frank Bill
Probably doesn't have a chance of making it to the big screen, as we all are going over "the cliff" on Monday anyway, but as the well-known idiom in theater goes..."break a leg" Happy New Year to all!!
