The Lyrics

Hearing all the MSM columnists weeping and gnashing their teeth brought an old National Lampoon Joni Mitchell parody to mind, so I thought I'd dust it off and update it a little.
"And now, ladies and gentlemen, Linda Rondstat!"

[Canned wild cheering]

I'm gonna tell the whole world
that you put us through hell,
'Cause the better I sing it,
the better it'll sell!
How you said "Mission accomplished!"
and you reinstated the draft!
Then I'm gonna go
and I'm going tell the world
everything else you never said.

You old junkie!
You scum monkey!
You Hitler flunky!
I love you...

[Guitar slap and more canned cheering.]

I'm gonna tell everybody
that your favorite color's red,
that you really like Republicans,
and your wife still shares your bed!
And if you don't know why that's bad,
then you're a bigger son of a [blanked-out spot]--tch
than I thought you were in the first place
And I always thought you were Satanic to begin with.

You voters told me you liked the way I sing,
but when I pitched for Michael Moore
you know you slammed the door behind me with a bang!
Well you can still come and listen as I fulminate anytime,
but if you won't admit that you're stupid
then you know you're longsheet redneck swine!

You red-staters!
You Ralph Naders!
You mother-f--[truncated blanked-out spot]--mn traitors!
I love you-ooh!
Starling!* I love you!
I love you!
I love you!
I love you-ooh!
*Possibly a reference to Jodie Foster, hinting both at the singer's hitherto unrevealed lesbianism and psychotic intents toward the President.

Well-paced and topical, made some valid points--but Bush-bashing has been done a bit too often. 5-3-4...
Offender - November 10, 2004 - Report this comment
What can I say? Bush-bashing harpies are easy targets.
Dangling Chad - February 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Ingeborg gave you a 5-3-4. No one else but you has commented. And yet you have twenty-nine 5-5-5's. What's your secret?
Dangling Chad - February 16, 2005 - Report this comment
Wow. No more new comments but now you're magically up to thirty-seven 5-5-5's. And all of your other parodies have fared equally well. How do you do it?
ChuckyG - February 17, 2005 - Report this comment
vote inflation is pretty silly... I removed all the duplicate votes...
Dangling Chad - February 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, Chucky. With fake votes removed, this is at:
Pacing: One 1, Zero 2's, One 3, Zero 4's, One 5.
How Funny: One 1, Zero 2's, Two 3's, Zero 4's, Zero 5's.
Overall: One 1, Zero 2's, One 3, One 4, Zero 5's.
It is worth noting that, since this will probably receive another flood of fake votes soon--like all of Offender's other parodies.

I've got some more plans to mess with you two soon.
Dangling Chad - February 21, 2005 - Report this comment
I see that this has already picked up six anonymous 555's in the four days since Chucky removed the fake votes. Gosh, this time they must all be legit.

Here's a suggestion: Why not try writing a parody worthy of good scores instead of padding the votes on lame ones?
Offender - February 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Dearest Chad, I already write worthy parodies. My jokes on the system have nothing to do with "worthiness" at all, just like the system itself, and just like you.
Dangling Chad - February 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Now you're suffering delusions of adequacy. Ah well, enjoy the fake 555's since they're the only kind you get.

You're apparently suffering from the delusion that the ratings mean anything. No, Chad, the only things worth having around here are comments. As for the system, screw that; and that's exactly what I'm going to do.
