The Same Old Song

Hey kids, I’m still feeling lousy, but I wanted to post something. I dusted this off, because it stars three senators i detest–Captain Underpants, Lindseypoo, and Joe McLiebercain (now a/k/a Joe Liebermouse). It was originally posted over at Amercian Street on April 9. 2008. Make sure to wash your hands after reading it so you don’t catch the cooties!

The Same Old Song

Hiya, kids! Did you watch the Petraeus/Crocker hearings yesterday? Me, too. Well, I watched part of it. How long do you have to listen to realize that they were saying nothing new? Well, I don’t know about you, kids, but when I get fed up with the world, I listen to music. A confession here–I am not a music aficionado. I couldn’t tell you who sang what song when, with one exception–I played my CD of the Singing Senators until it wore out. I am broken-hearted that they disbanded so abruptly. Without my Singing Senators CD, I had to look for something else to listen to. Well, guess what! There are some brand new singing senators, and they sing in so many different genres! Follow me, kids, and I will show you my new musical collection…..

If you thought The Kingston Trio was good, wait ’til you hear these guys!

‘Roid Rage

Hey kids! Remember the Singing Senators? They broke up after Trent Lott pulled a Sarah Palin resigned, and Larry Craig tapped his Buster Browns in the wrong men’s room. Well, according to me my anonymous sources, a few of the musical Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee have formed a new group! They’re called Pink ‘Roids. No, not these kinds of roids, the kind you need this stuff for. I’m guessing they picked that name, because they’re always so red and irritated and angry. Anyway, they have a new video out! They really rock!

To the tune of Another Brick in the Wall (Pink Floyd)”:

We don’t need no legislation
Break Obama: that’s our goal
We love each campaign donation
Listen as we bitch and moan
Hey! Congress! Leave Cigna alone!
All in all, we’re gonna just continue to stall.
Overall it’s just another game of beanball.

But He’s Still Not Gay…

Here we go again, kids!
From the Idaho Statesman (Hey, kids! They have audio interviews over there!):

David Phillips. Mike Jones. Greg Ruth. Tom Russell.

Four gay men, willing to put their names in print and whose allegations can’t be disproved, have come forward since news of U.S. Sen. Larry Craig’s guilty plea. They say they had sex with Craig or that he made a sexual advance or that he paid them unusual attention.

They are telling their stories now because they are offended by Craig’s denials, including his famous statement, “I am not gay, I never have been gay.” Those words, spoken on live national TV on Aug. 28, are now memorialized on a just-released-for-Christmas Talking Senator Larry Craig Action Figure.

Whole Lott-a Leavin’ Goin’ On

From The New York Times:

PASCAGOULA, Miss., Nov. 26 — Senator Trent Lott’s announcement on Monday that he would resign in a few weeks added to the growing Republican exodus from Congress, but may have strengthened Mr. Lott’s post-Senate job prospects.

By retiring before the end of the year, Mr. Lott, the 66-year-old minority whip and Mississippi dealmaker who fell from power with a remark touching on segregation but then bounced back, avoids new rules forcing senators to wait two years before lobbying former colleagues.
