Obama Wines & Dines GOP Senators (But will he get lucky?) Vietnam POW McCain Defends Jane Fonda! Can You Feel The LOvE ?

(Planet Washington) – When News Breaks, We Fix It. The President has launched a charm offensive with the help of McCain Amigo Lindsay Graham taking no fewer than 11 GOP Senators to dinner at DC’s posh Jefferson Hotel. Will POTUS score? On the first date – unlikely.

Meanwhile, as Rand Paul did his best Jimmy Stewart imitation filibustering the CIA Director’s nomination on the Senate floor for over 10 hours, he invoked the image of Vietnam war protestor and bete noir of Vietnam vets Jane Fonda — which brought none other than uber vet and POW John McCain to the floor TO DEFEND FONDA! It’s Madness! March Madness!

Will All This LOvE Change Gotham, er, Washington?

Saturday night, Planet Washington celebrates this madness with a special parody of — Can You Feel The LOvE Tonight?  The song from the Lyin’ King.

Did Beyonce Lip Sync Planet Washington Parody?

Ken Rynne (& Beyonce) have done it again! Our tribute to the 44th President of these somewhat United States unveiled at our Inauguration Eve Show.
Ken sang ‘Barack in the Saddle Again’ live! Beyonce did not lip sync nor did she perform live at the New Hampshire Avenue venue. We hope this will stop the rumors and many press inquiries. We can only hope.

Barack in the Saddle Again
Parody of Gene Autrey & Ray Whitley’s Back in the Saddle Again (1939). Parody by Ken Rynne. As not sung by Beyonce

Barack in the Saddle Again
Here where your dog is your friend
Where the bottom-feeders breed
And the Westerners smoke weed (inhale!!!)
Barack in the saddle again

Ridin’ the range once more
Totin’ my old .44
(If your background check is done
And you’re over 21)
Barack in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh
Eric Canter’s got to go
Back in the saddle again
Whoopi-ty-aye-yay
Joe Biden’s here to stay (It’s a Big F@ckin Deal!)
Barack in the saddle again

Our next live pubic show: Feb 16, The Westin Hotel,
1400 M Street, NW, Washington, DC.

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!

OBAMA 2012 Proposes Campaign Donations In Lieu of Wedding Gifts! Change We Can Live Without!


For a campaign known for innovation and a candidate known for popularity with women, the OBAMA 2012 Campaign sounded an odd note this week by proposing as one fundraising idea, that brides and grooms-to-be suggest that wedding guests offer campaign contributions in lieu of gifts. What a great way to start wedded bliss! Our first fight!

We will gladly publish reactions of brides and grooms in this space – if printable!

We can only assume this idea was suggested by Divorce Lawyers for Obama/Biden. Or Mitt Romney.

when news breaks, we fix it!

President To Congress: Stop Acting French! Do Something!

Breaking News – President Barack Obama is delivering a statement on the economy, including the European crisis, at 10:15 a.m. ET.

According to the White House, Obama will call on Congress to “pass the bipartisan, paid-for ideas that the President proposed last year to put construction workers back to work upgrading our roads and bridges, teachers back in the classroom educating our kids and police and firefighters back on the job keeping our communities safe.”

We Fix It…

The Good News: Today Americans are paying for More Home Building, More Bridge and Transportation Repair, and More Jobs Than Ever!

The Bad News: It’s in Iraq & Afghanistan.

Inspirational/Motivational/Sensational Think Piece

DC Public School’s Own – Warren Buffett!

While his dad served in Congress (4 terms) Warren attended Deal Junior High (now, Deal Middle School) and graduated from Wilson High in DC – Class of ’47. Yearbook: “Likes Math, Future stock broker.” Who knew?

Buffett was back at Deal Junior High today with a CNBC crew reliving old memories and sheepishly asking if they still had his conduct records which by his account would show him to be a baaad boy! Imagine! A late bloomer! There’s hope for us all!

More later. See our olde Fabulous Baker Boyz song dedicated to Warren and Jimmy (Wasted Away in W’s Hooverville).
