If there is one word to define 2020 so far, it is social distancing. As annoying as it is, its the only way to stop the coronavirus.
Randy Rainbow released his newest video this morning, entitled SOCIAL DISTANCE – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody. It is based on the song Go The Distance from the 1997 Disney movie Hercules (1997).
As much as we all know how important social distancing is, it is frustrating. Human beings by nature are social creatures. Staying indoors all day with only limited periods of going outside for only the basics can become emotionally and physically frustrating. We need fresh air, we need exercise and we need to see other people in person, not just on the various screens that we have.
To everyone reading this post, I hope that you are healthy, staying home and keeping busy. We will get through this, but to do so, we need patience and understanding.
It has been said that in challenging times, how one responds to that challenge speaks volumes.
Last night, Randy Rainbow released his newest video, The CORONAVIRUS Lament – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody.
Based on the song Adelaide’s Lament from the 1950’s musical, Guys and Dolls, Rainbow paints a picture as only he can of a President and a Presidential administration whose head is in the literal sand.
I read somewhere (though I don’t recall where and I cannot find a link) that the comparisons between for President Jimmy Carter and his handling of the Iranian hostage crisis and the way you know who is not reacting as he should to this crisis. The writer predicted that like Jimmy Carter, you know who will be a one term President.
From this person’s mouth to G-d and the voter’s ears.
There is nothing like laughter to relieve stress. There is nothing like satire to make one feel better when it feels like the world is crumbling around you.
Depending on where one lands on the political spectrum, it would be understandable to feel that the political system that ensures America’s survival is disintegrating before our very eyes. That is where elections come in. Elections, whether on the local, state or national level, give the voters a sense of control.
Randy Rainbow released his newest video earlier today. It is titled “ANY DEM WILL DO! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody”
Back in January, I wrote a post questioning if “Vote Blue, No Matter Who” was the best way to go in this election. As of now, my mind has started to slightly change. We need a Democrat in the White House, but we also need to be smart about who we vote for.
But if nothing else, we have Randy Rainbow to keep us laughing and thinking at the same time.
The job of the United States Attorney General is to be the country’s lead attorney. Though he or she is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, they are not the personal attorney of the President.
Try telling that to you know who.
Randy Rainbow’s newest video is entitled “NO RULES FOR DONALD – Randy Rainbow Song Parody“.
Set to the Dua Lipa song, New Rules, the song lays out why Attorney General William Barr is as corrupt as his boss. He should be doing what is right for the country. But he is doing what is good for his boss and his bosses’s ability to keep his job.
Just another reason to vote him out out of office in the fall.
The term “quid pro quo” has been bandied about the press and the voting public since the impeachment proceedings against you know who started last week. In laymen’s terms, it means that one person will do something for another person, but the first person expects something in return.
Randy Rainbow’s latest video is entitled “He’s Just a GURL Who’ll QUID PRO QUO! – Randy Rainbow Song Parody“.
Based on the song “I Cain’t Say No” from the Rogers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma!. The original song is a euphemism describing the sexual blooming of the character of Ado Annie, a young lady with more male attention than she knows what to do with. This is a perfect song to parody how whorish (for lack of a better term) you know who is to stay in office.
I wish I could say that the circus that is the current state of politics will soon be going away. But with a Presidential election less than a year away and a President with autocratic tendencies, this circus will be our political normal for quite some time.
Those of us who are above a certain age remember the dark days just after 9/11. It was nothing but chaos and grief. Back then, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) was a light in that darkness. He was one of a handful of officials who helped to get New York City and the country back on it’s feet.
These days, he’s a joke. Known more for being you know who’s personal legal lackey, he is not the man the public thought he was 18 years ago.
Enter Randy Rainbow’s new video, entitled “GIULIANI! (Here He Goes Again) – Randy Rainbow Song Parody”. Using ABBA‘s classic song “Mamma Mia” as a cornerstone, this song perfectly explains that this former NYC mayor is not what he used to be. He is not only talking out of his behind, he is one of the idiots who is putting America on the road to Hades in a hand basket.
Just another reason to get you know who out of office.
Politics can be perceived as a game of favorites. The question that I often ask, is even though we agree with a particular politician, are we bold enough to stand up when we disagree with them?
We all know that you know is if nothing else, a slick salesman who knows what to say and how to say it to seal the deal. There is a certain similarity between sales and politics. The difference, however, is that politics has real world and possibly long term consequences while a bad sale is normally just that.
Randy Rainbow’s latest video is entitled SUCKERS – Randy Rainbow Song Parody. Spoofing the Jonas Brothers song, Sucker, this video perfectly illustrates how blinded you know who’s followers are.
In watching this video, it makes me question if this experiment that is the American democracy will exist in the future. A country in which one person rules without question is not a democracy. My fear that there are too many people who for whatever reason are blinded by pretty sales pitch instead of seeing him for the huckster salesman that he is.
Impeaching a President or any politician is serious business. It requires unassailable proof that the accused has committed a crime. The problem in the US these days is that the answer to the question of if we should impeach you know who depends on who asks the question.
This morning, Randy Rainbow released his new video, “JUST IMPEACH HIM – Randy Rainbow Song Parody“.
I have to admit that I cannot identify the original song or the artist. That being said, this is the first Randy Rainbow song that I do not unilaterally agree with. Though I laughed (as I do with his previous songs), I have to admit that this song made me think.
While I agree that the actions of you know who are morally and politically questionable, impeachment should only occur when the evidence cannot be questioned or denied. The problem from my perspective is that this evidence either does not exist or is only known to certain people who are keeping it from the voting public.
Either way, until this evidence is made public, I cannot and will stand behind impeaching you know who.
