Let’s jump right into this simple ditty. Sung to the tune of “Tush” by ZZ Top (just for Good Old Joe): Polls were up, now they’re down.By tomorrow, in the ground.I ain’t askin’ for much.I said, I’m not a pervert,I just want a girl to touch. More

That’s right. The googly-eyed, shark-toothed, New York political phenom has been replaced as the media’s darling by the Bobby Kennedy-esque (not) Beto O’Rourke! I’m sure Beto’s wife Amy is a nice person, but no doubt she’s thrilled by his announcement. Here she is singing to the tune of The Banana Boat Song (with zero regrets […]

I discovered both the left and the right have written their own versions of Jesus Christ Superstar (Is nothing sacred?). This post will contain the right’s version, and the left’s version will be in a separate post. Here is a song from Donald Trump Superstar. It’s Stormy Daniels, singing about The Donald (sung to “I […]

Flight 94: The Presidential Race Film Franchise

 

Michael Anton’s essay, wherein he claimed the 2016 election was the Flight 93 scenario has slipped into the general consciousness as being either a prophetic doomsday scenario of Hillary’s potential presidency and a last chance to save the nation from disaster, or a now-risible bit of demagoguery aimed to scare voters into voting against their interests, depending on one’s point of view and political leanings. What is undeniable, of course, is that the phrase has stuck and become something of a metaphor or touchstone for how one views the Trump years.

What is also undeniable is that as successful as the phrase has become, it has real franchise potential too. I will go so far as to say that the 2020 election is shaping up to be the Flight 94 election, and like all too many Hollywood superhero/disaster/car-racing underworld second films, it looks to be far worse than the origin story of the first movie.

Inspired by Richard Easton’s brilliant AOC song parody (https://ricochet.com/595256/one-side-now-the-green-raw-deal/), I figured I should try one. Sung to the tune of “I’m Coming Out”, with apologies to Diana Ross: [Extremely long musical intro] More

My Decision

 

Not many people know this, but I have been quietly contemplating a run for a seat in the United States Senate. Recent events have convinced me that the time for contemplation is over. I have made my decision, and the time has come to announce it.

After a great deal of discussion with my wife and children, after many hours of deep thought, meditation, and prayer to several deities from a list I found on the internet (to cover all the bases), I have decided, at last, not to seek office at this time.

Hello, everyone. I’ll forgo the usual formalities and get right down to the point. The American people have once again gone to the polls and made their wishes known. I’d like to thank all those citizens who contributed to my forty-five state landslide. And for those of you who didn’t vote for me? Sppppuuuu! Now, […]

Each day, I begin my morning by silencing my phone’s alarm and scrolling through BBC headlines — arguably an act of supreme masochism. Each day, then, I’m treated to a panoramic view of mankind’s ever-shrinking intuition. Each day, I witness yet more proof of the slow death of common sense. Such articles often remind me […]
