Funny Stuff Parody Think Piece

There’s Snow Business Like Slow Business!

A 2″ snowfall paralyzes the nation’s capital city : For some, it’s another reason to just say “slow.”

Let it Snow

Oh the Democrats’ time is dwindling,
And their bills we’ll use as kindling,
Legislation we’ll take real slow,
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

Bush Tax Breaks They’ve Failed at Stopping,
And their START vote will be flopping.
Filibuster Don’t Ask, I know,
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.

When we finally do adjourn,
For a two-week Christmas at home,
Harry Reid says he might call us back,
But he’ll find out I’ve turned off my phone!

The Democratic fire’s slowly dying,
And it’s time for their good-bying,
But as long as we just say “no!”
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

[If Senate Democrats learn to say “no”
Oh no, Oh no, Oh no!]

President, Republican Congressional Leaders Meet At Last and Plan to: Meet Again!

The long-awaited meeting between The President and Congressional Republicans was finally held with agreement all around that the parties should…meet again!  Taxes? GOP united and uniformly against them.  Unemployment Insurance?  Not yet.  Jobs?  None discussed, except for meeting planners apparently.

Oh Oh Elena Kagan!

(August 5) – Elena Kagan, once a solicitous general, has been confirmed as the 112th Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (or, “SCOTUS” in DC parlance).

While other nominees have ben pilloried for their judicial activism and views as divined from years of published judicial opinions, Ms. Kagan was pilloried for just the opposite. The quietest nominee since Silent Cal Coolidge.

Well, we did learn that she is a policy wonk, Justice Marshall nicknamed her “shortie,” she plays softball, and we know where to find her on Christmas Day —  like any nice Jewish girl, “in a Chinese restaurant.” My girl has a sense of humor! And brains. Forget Julia Roberts, too 80s. Today’s hot woman has smarts – has laughter – has – a great slow inside pitch!

ELENA KAGAN
Parody of “Oh, Pretty Woman”
by Ken Rynne
See, Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, 510 U.S. 569 (1994) (the “Pretty Woman/Ugly Woman” case) established that a commercial parody can qualify as fair use of copyright material.

Elena Kagan, walking down the street
ELENA KAGAN, DOWN THERE BY MY FEET
ELENA KAGAN
I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could BE AS…wicked SMART — as you!
(Mercy!)

ELENA KAGAN, won’t you pardon me
ELENA KAGAN, I could not help see
ELENA KAGAN
That your IQ is high as can be
Are you NERDY just like me
(HEH-HEH-HEH)

ELENA KAGAN, stop a while
ELANA KAGAN, talk a while
ELENA, share POLICY INSIGHTS with me
ELENA KAGAN , yeah yeah yeah
ELENA KAGAN, look my way
ELENA KAGAN, pitch slow, inside to me
‘Cause I need you, I’ll treat you right
Come with me baby, read briefs tonight

Elena Kagan, don’t walk on by
Elena Kagan, don’t make me cry
Elena Kagan, don’t walk away, hey…okay
If that’s the way it must be, okay
I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
There’ll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see?
Is she walking back to me?
Confirmed & walking back to me!
Oh, oh, Elena Kagan!
