The “Oz” connection

image

imageRemember what Mike Zullo said in a text message revealed in the Melendres case as part of the Deposition of Travis Anglin?

Hell, I would wear a dress and ruby slippers all year if we can prove this.

Yesterday testimony in the Melendres case revealed that the MCSO code name for Dennis Montgomery was “OZ.”

Somewhere over the rainbow … the certificate’s a fake.
Birds fly over the rainbow … why can’t I win my case?

    Wonder what Zullo’s code name was? Arpaio’s? You could have a name the conspirators contest.

    Repeat after me: “There’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…”

    So who gets to be the Wicked Witch of the West and who gets to be the all great and powerful Wizard?

    Is Arpaio’s Command Staff collectively the Munchkins?

    So they’re all Friends of Dorothy?
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    “So who gets to be the Wicked Witch of the West…”

    That would be MCSO PIO Lisa Allen.

    Orly Taitz, had she been allowed to intervene, was to be the “Scarecrow.”

    Not much of a secret code if you ask me.

    Munchkins were with the good guys, the Flying Monkeys were the WWotW’s shock troops.

    Or am I missing something with this analogy stream here?

    Given the reports of how they snoozed through malfeasance by their subordinates, I suggest that they represent the Lullabye League.

    Birdboy and the other keyboard warriors would be the Lollipop Guild.

    I’d forgotten some of the lyrics in the half-century or so since I saw the movie. The last verse of their song contains some wonderful irony about A/Z’s current predicament, if you (mis)interpret it the right way:

    From now on you’ll be history.
    You’ll be his-, you’ll be his-, you’ll be history.
    And we will glorify your name.
    You will be a bust, be a bust, be a bust
    In the Hall of Fame!

    Trump makes a good fit for the Cowardly Lion, both in matters hair-y and in the avoidance of hairy issues.

    I thought of suggesting Corsi for Tin Man, but, strictly speaking, he’s never shown any sign of wanting to have a heart.

    Makes you wonder what A/Z were doing during all their downtime? If Z was dressing up as Dorothy, who was A dressing up as? Bette Davis in Mommy Dearest?
