    Other than their praise for the Sandanistas, I thought it was pretty good.

    Of course, it has been said before:

    When I sally forth to seek my prey
    I help myself in a royal way.
    I sink a few more ships, it’s true,
    Than a well-bred monarch ought to do;
    But many a king on a first-class throne,
    If he wants to call his crown his own,
    Must manage somehow to get through
    More dirty work than ever I do, the Pirate King – Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance
