Strange Bedfellows (a 100% Weiner-free story)

a href=”http://planetwashington.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/1375271902000-AP-Obama-McCain-1307310850_4_3.jpg”>

At a time when GOP presidential hopefuls attack each other publicly, House Dems wait and see as mid-term elections approach, and Senators filibuster changes to the filibuster, in the New Republic great praise is lavished upon President Obama by none other than Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), the GOP nominee who battled Obama in his first presidential campaign in 2008. The old saw “politics makes strange bed fellows” is truer now than ever – and it has nothing to do with DOMA, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, or candidates for office in New York State.

Barack in the Saddle Again: 4 More Jeers!!!

Inauguration Weekend PLANET WASHINGTON will be doing its part to ring out the old, and ring in … the old, as the Obama Administration begins a second term and ‘FORWARD Again’ resounds throughout the nation’s Capital City. Private parties will keep us busy comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable in our own little contribution to our great democracy.

Our NEXT PUBLIC SHOW will be FEBRUARY 16 at THE WESTIN. 1400 M Street NW DC at 7:30 pm. when we commmemorate Luv Guv Eliot Spitzer’s Valentine’s Day visit to the Mayflower Hotel and celebrate other infamous Washington lovers who aspire to the title The Great Philanderer!

Appearances

Election Special: Planet Washington Show!


“BELIEVE” – THE BOOK OF ROMNEY!

“FORWARD” – BARACK OBAMA SUPERSTAR!

“JUST GO AWAY” – AMERICA

 

Planet Washington will present a special show of wicked funny and musical spoofs of the elections, the candidates, and all the fun, fudge, and gridlock that is Washington – in the weekend between the two presidential debates:

Our Triumphant Return to DC: At our old haunt The Westin, formerly the Vista International, made infamous in 1990 when DC Mayor Marion Barry was videotaped smoking a small pipe in Room 727 (apparently a non-smoking room) and was escorted out by FBI agents who just happened to be next door (There’s always a cop around when you DON’T need one. ) (“At the Vista with the Sista” is Stop #12 on The Planet Washington Irreverent Tour )

Last time we performed at The Westin our friend and mentor Mark Russell, Dean of DC political satirists, dropped in to share a few of his arrows which were as always right on target!
Mark just turned 80 in August and is still the Jedi Master of musical political parody!

WalMart Opens in DC? Shop There. Work There. What Next?

BREAKING NEWS: (Washington, DC) — With much fanfare it was announced that Wal Mart will donate $3 Million to train DC residents to fill 2,000 JOBS in its yet-to-be-built stores in the District of Columbia.  Mom & Pop  local merchants are not that impressed  BUT this will make Wal Mart, already the nation’s largest private employer, the largest employer in DC (non-government, non-lobbyist, non-bartender employer in DC) !!!

So don a smily face and grab a cart!!!

Welcome WalMart !  We shop there!  We work there!  What next?

‘United States of Wal Mart’

Parody of Under the Boardwalk

By Ken Rynne   © 2005-2011 Brighton Productions

When I need a shovel or a brand new suit of clothes,

There is one-stop shopping in a place that everybody knows.

I shop at Wal Mart, to buy my teddys, tools, or tires.

At the snack bar with my baby that’s where I’ll be.

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for shoes and socks,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for watches and clocks,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for crackers and cheese,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for my BVDs,

I go to Wal Mart, Wal Mart.

When the plant shut down, they moved production overseas,

I got a job in sales, I sell imported clothes and cheap TVs.

Now I work at Wal Mart, where I sell cameras and VCRs,

If it ain’t made in China well that’s news to me.


[All: I go to Wal Mart] to buy a phone,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for a sub prime loan,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for a new backpack,

[All: I go to Wal Mart] for my Prozac,

I go to Wal Mart, Wal Mart.

When I fell behind they took my credit cards and house away,

I searched in vain for a decent place for me, my dog, my kids, and wife to stay.

Now I live at Wal Mart, between the housewares and the sporting goods,

Cookin breakfast on the Coleman, that’s  where I’ll be.


[All: I live at Wal Mart] seven / twenty-four,

[All: I live at Wal Mart] park right by the door,

[All: I live at Wal Mart] got a photo place,

[All: I live at Wal Mart] I wear a smiley face,

I live at Wal Mart, Wal Mart!

Hexagon Foundation, Planet Washington’s Ken Rynne To Roast Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)

The Friends of Hexagon Foundation’s Darrell Capwell announces that Planet Washington’s Ken Rynne will join in The Foundation’s “Roast & Toast” of DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton on October 22, 2010 at the US Navy Memorial in DC.

For the occasion, Ken will reprise his role as “Bud Noir, Member of Congress,” Washington, DC’s answer to Garrison Keillor & Minnesota Public Radio’s Guy Noir, Private Eye. In the past, “Bud” has sparred on stage with New York Times Columnist “Maureen Dowd” and former Governor “Sarah Palin.”

We look forward to Ken’s “tribute” to DC’s legendary delegate, Ms. Norton, a staunch Hexagon supporter, a frequent “Newsbreak” guest, who is painfully shy so Ken will ask her to open up for once to see if she has an opinion about the issue of “DC Statehood.”
