Chocolate chip cookie dough in a sugar cone
Drones in the morning, drones in the night
I’m trying to find a pretty drone to take home tonight
This could be taken as being a couple of different analogies. The U.S. government picks their targets (w/ foreign policy & drones) seemingly arbitrarily, like picking a flavor of the month (chocolate chip cookie dough in a sugar cone). Also people pick their political stances in a flippant manner like picking an ice cream flavor (for ex. “Guns are bad” but “Drones are good”).
Heems is both criticizing the American government and satirizing the american media for their handling of drone strikes in the middle east, by comparing it to the way people make unqualified judgments about women based on superficial (if not completely arbitrary) logic.
This hook can also be understood as a critique of electoral politics in the U.S. Heems facetiously distinguishes between “cool” drones and drones he hates. He also reveals that he’d like to get down with a drone, as long as it’s attractive. This describes in broad strokes the way voters overlook fundamental similarities between politicians (for example, the way many agree on tactics such as drone strikes) and focus on the few, often insubstantial differences between them.
