These days there isn't much else. Thankfully, Alex Ross has neatly brought them together. I love the sound of Phil Kline's Rumsfeld Songs:

By some arcane alchemy, Kline draws clean melodic lines from such unpromising material as Rumsfeld’s analysis of the looting of Baghdad: "It's the same picture of some person walking out of some building with a vase." I caught myself singing this the other day, to my alarm.
