McChrystal just misses being on the Cover of the Rolling Stone

Isn't it just common knowledge that if you bad mouth your bosses, and they hear about it, you might get in a bit of trouble?

Well, it must not be common knowledge to Gen. Stanley McChrystal because boy did he do a lot of talking -- to the Rolling Stone, no less. And what purpose did it serve? Well, he got into the Rolling Stone, but other than that, nothing.

Oh yes, he got fired.

Now that his military career is winding down, I wouldn't be surprised if McChrystal showed up this time on the:

Cover of the Rolling Stone
Based on the song Cover of the Rolling Stone written by Shel Silverstein and sung by Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show (sing along with the video at the bottom)

I'm a big right-winger, I've got tanks and stingers
And I march everywhere I go
I talk about Biden, and Eikenberry too,
For anyone who cares to know
I run all kinds of drills to give me all kinds of thrills
But the thrill I've never known
Is the thrill that'll get you when you get your picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my picture on the cover
Rolling Stone
     Wanna buy five copies for Obama
Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

There was a freaky old lady name o' Cocaine Katy
Who wrote down the things I said.
I saw my chance to make the cover
Before the war made me dead
Now it's all designed to blow their minds
But their minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll get 'em when they see my picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my picture on the cover
Rolling Stone
     Wanna buy five copies for Obama
Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

I got a lot of nasty looks from that Mr. Obama
Who heard every word I said
We had a genuine Indian pow-wow
"You're fired" is sort of what he said,
But I got all the friends that money can buy
So I never have to be alone
And they keep getting richer, but I still got my picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my picture on the cover
Rolling Stone
     Wanna buy five copies for Obama
Rolling Stone
     Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone
