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

Minimal Carbon Footprint Transportation Carol

Sleigh Ride! A Holiday Parody by Ken Rynne
for fellow energy wonks

Dashing through the snow, In a one-horse open sleigh;
O’er the fields we go, Laughing all the way.
Bells on bobtail ring, Making spirits bright;
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Oh! jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way;
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way;
We can’t afford to fuel our car, so we’re freezing in this sleigh.
We can’t afford to fuel our car, so we’re freezing in this sleigh. Hey!
(fueled by hay!)

We’ll Have Sequestration for Christmas this Year


SEQUESTRATION? It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like……Congress! (a Holiday Parody by Ken Rynne)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress / Ev’rywhere you go.
Take a look at the budget tiff / approaching the fiscal cliff /
With revenue & tax cuts all aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress /Domestic cuts in store
But the prettiest sight to see /is the tax cut that will be /
On your own front door.

A pair of hop-along boots /& a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Generals and friends /
Dolls that won’t talk but will go for a walk /
Is the hope of Petraes’ men /
And Grover Norquist pledges not to start that pledge again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress / Ev’rywhere you go; /
The White House has got a tree / The Capitol now has three /
for Democrats Republicans, and Tea (party)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress/ a deal will soon be near
But the thing that will make us sing / is the silliness they’ll bring /
as they do each year!

But the thing that will make us sing / is the silliness they’ll bring /
as they do each year!

Merry Congress & Happy Sequestration Everyone from Planet Washington!
