Of course, the more you think about it, the more you realise how archetypical Andrew Lloyd-Webber's musical is, and how closely every single one of our puppet governments have followed Lloyd-Webber's script. Here comes the saviour! Here come the promises! Here comes hope and change! Believe! Believe! Believe! It's creepy how eerily similar certain songs work in today's West Wing, and with that in mind, let us listen to Rahm Emanuel, the Dick Cheney of Democrats....

[Rahm Emanuel:]
But on the other hand, he's all they have
He's a diamond in their dull gray lives
And that's the hardest kind of stone
It usually survives
And when you think about it, can you recall
The last time they loved anyone at all?

He's not a bauble you can brush aside
He's been out doing what we just talked about, example
Gave us back our reputation, got the Europeans quiet
And when you think about it, well why not do
One or two of the things we promised to?

But on the other hand, he's slowing down
He's lost a little of that magic drive
But I would not advise those critics present to derive
Any satisfaction from his fading star
He's the one who's kept us where we are

He's the one who's kept you where you are
