The joke about politics and politicians is that the promises that are made on the campaign trail doesn’t always translate into action when the winner takes office. But I would hope that at the very least, he or she tries to turn those promises into reality.
Randy Rainbow released his new video earlier today.
Titled TED and LINDSEY! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, Rainbow uses the song Kansas City from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! as the basis for the video. If I were to judge some Republican members of Congress on a scale of 1-10, (1 being somewhat decent and 10 being the worst of the worst), both Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham would score an 11. They are hypocritical bullshitters who are more concerned with saving their own skins and kissing you know who’s ass rather than doing the job the voters hired them to do.
I can only hope, that at some point in the future, their constituents replace them with someone who puts their constituents first.
A political scandal is nothing new. It is as old as humanity itself. The question is, when does it get to the point in which the politician is unable to do his or her job?
Last year, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo became a symbol of how to deal with Covid-19. For months on end, he gave a daily televised press conference going over the most recent numbers of NYers who were hospitalized and/or killed by the virus.
If I am to be perfectly honest, I would have him step down. Though he gets major points for being open and honest about the Covid stats, that cannot wash away the both the fudging of the nursing home facts and these new allegations.
The fact is that sexual assault and sexual harassment (especially in the workplace) is still far too common. The only way we can stop it once and for all is to make examples of those who have been found guilty of committing such acts. If it becomes clear that the punishment is not worth the brief pleasure the harasser gets, then maybe we finally put it in the rear view mirror.
Tomorrow is a momentous day in American history. It is the day that we finally say good riddance to you know who.
Randy Rainbow released what maybe his last you know who related video today. Entitled SEASONS OF TRUMP – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, the song is based on Seasons of Love from the musical Rent.
If there was ever a perfect song to say goodbye to you know who and the chaos he has created, this is it. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am more than ready to see Joe Biden take the Oath of Office and lead us back to some version of normal.
The accusation of sedition is a serious one. It is not to be taken lightly or without being unaware of the consequences of what is being said.
Back in 1918, the Sedition act of 1918 was enshrined as law. In a nutshell, it is described as follows:
“Willfully utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of the Government of the United States”
I think most Americans would say that the so-called “protest” (aka riot) that happened on Wednesday afternoon is more than enough to strongly consider the allegation of sedition. Not just for you know who, but for his enablers, and those who stormed into the Capitol building hoping to overturn the results of the election.
Randy Rainbow release his new video this afternoon. Entitled “SEDITION! – A Randy Rainbow Parody“, it is a take-off on the song “Tradition” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.
I have said many times that Rainbow is a genius. This time, I have no choice but to get on my figurative knees and bow down to this man. After the chaos and destruction, it is clear that changes must be made. It is also clear that we cannot just sweep what has happened under the rug. We need to face it head-on, take a good look in the mirror, and learn from our mistakes.
P.S. If there is one bright spot, it is that you know who has been permanently banned from Twitter.
From the outside looking in, the law profession is a noble one. But then I see the commercials for law firms on television and I have to wonder if they are as legit as they promise to be.
One could say the same for former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Once upon a time, he was respected lawyer and politician. These days, the man is a punchline waiting to be written.
Randy Rainbow released his latest video today. Entitled RUDOLPH THE LEAKY LAWYER – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, the song is based on the beloved Christmas song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
He could have gone down in history as the NYC Mayor who cleaned up Times Square and led us through the darkness of 9/11. But instead, he will be remembered as a bloviated fool who nearly destroyed the American democracy to protect the fragile ego of you know who.
Learning to lose graciously is part of growing up. Most of us accept that by a certain age, we will have to admit that not everything in life is winnable.
We are several weeks out from the Presidential election. At this point, the results should be old news. The focus should be the peaceful transition from the current administration to the new administration. But, thanks the antics and false claims of voter fraud by you know who, the nation and the world is unable to move forward.
Enter Randy Rainbow’s new video, Don’t Tell Donald He’s NOT RE-ELECTED TODAY! – Randy Rainbow Parody. Using the song Getting Married Today from the musical Company, the video mocks the futile attempts to ignore the voice of the voting public.
What I love about this video is that in addition to the usual delicious satire, there is a feeling of rejoicing. We all know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election. It’s time to let them do their job and show you know who the door.
In only a short few days, Americans will know who will be leading the country for the next four years. While millions have already made the choice known, others will be going to the polls on Election Day.
Randy Rainbow released his newest video on Friday.Entitled HOW WILL YOU VOTE? – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, the song is based “That’s How You Know” from the 2007 movie Enchanted.
I loved this video. Over the last week or so, the reminders to vote have come at us in all directions. Though we are told every year that that year’s election is the important, this year’s election is critical. If we do not vote you know who out, the United States as it exists today may not be there tomorrow.
I don’t know about anyone else, but at a certain point in the presidential election process, I feel like I am ready to vote and get on with my life. This year, that feeling is magnified by one hundred.
Randy Rainbow released his new video today. It is entitled IF DONALD GOT FIRED – Randy Rainbow Parody (featuring Patti LuPone!). Based on the song If Momma was Marriedfrom the musical Gypsy, the addition of Patti LuPone is the cherry on top.
The fact is, is that you know who has to go. For the sake of our country, for the sake of our democracy, and for everything we hold dear.
Every four years, we are told that that year’s election is the most important. Though it was certainly true of past elections, this statement is I think a testament to how crucial it is that we vote in November.
There is nothing like the energy of a Presidential election season. Regardless of who is running, there is a feeling in the air that only comes every four years.
As a life long Democrat, the last 3 1/2 years have been nothing but pure political torture. It felt like this country was on a downward spiral that would never end. Then Joe Biden announced last week that Kamala Harris would be his running mate. It finally felt like the sun was starting to peak out from behind the clouds.
The Senator and hopefully future Vice President is the subject of Randy Rainbow’s latest video. Entitled KAMALA! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, Rainbow uses the title song from the musical Camelot to express his joy (and our joy by extension) that she is in the race.
The thing about politics and the political game is that it is incredibly easy to become cynical and hopeless. But when there is a candidate like Harris who is able to remind us the possibilities, then we are reminded that there will always be a sliver of light in the darkness.
