Robert Gates, maverick former head pastry chef of the Central Intelligence Agency and Iran-Contra skater, desperately wants to continue to devote time and energy to his one overwhelming passion in life - the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University. However, former president George H.W. Bush won't allow that to happen as it might further expose his son's stupidity and ineptitude to the unwelcome attention of his superior, the masked Queen Yllana! So, until Gates can solve this invidious dilemma, he must continue to do the dirty work of his old boss, this time as secretary of defense while a chorus sings:
You will eat, bye and bye,
In that glorious land above the sky;
Work and pray, live on hay,
You'll get pie in the sky when you die.
When Gates returns to Washington, he finds that some of his old friends and co-workers are impostors - there's even an anti-war faction led by an attractive, miniskirted scientist from Venus, named Talleah. He decides that something odd has happened, and is determined to find out what.
