Trumpenfreude!

 It may not be nice to gloat as the GOP's nominee falls apart, but boy is it fun! Donald Trump is the culmination of the past 30 years of a litany of lies and faux outrage. Now they reap what they have sown.

GOP, You Do Know Women Can Vote, Right?

Last week's vote on Paycheck Fairness was just the latest example of right-wing misogyny (along with GOP leaders insisting women don't want equal pay because we little ladies prefer flexible hours so we can be soccer moms, and a Fox analyst insisting that lower pay for women helps us stay employed when the economy isn't so good). Not to mention the Ryan budget which shreds programs needed by women and kids. Do they think we're stupid, or did they forget we actually are allowed to vote?

Time for some well-earned gloating!

Despite the right's obstruction, lies, misleading ads, and 50+ pointless repeal votes, the ACA more than met its initial enrollment goal and is already helping millions of Americans. News this good deserves a song!

Jewish Mothers For Marriage Equality

Like all good Jewish mothers, I secretly hope for a gay son - so he'll never replace me with another woman and I'll have a shopping buddy! (cue rim shot) Plus I love playing Yenta; same-sex marriage just gives me even more potential couples to fix up.

Vacant Models, Viral Videos, and the Tea Party

Harry Reid has launched a new attack on the billionaire underwriters of the far right, using a phrase associated with a certain iconic '80s music video. So I couldn't resist turning myself into a vacant, glassy-eyed bimbo who doesn't really play her instrument (just like the glassy-eyed Tea Partyers aren't really pulling their own strings . . . )

It’s Not Easy Being Rich

Oh, those poor persecuted billionaires! Just because 95% of the economic recovery went to the top 1%, and 85 people control as much global wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion, their feelings are hurt when the rest of us complain.

Uncle Sugar, I Can’t Control My Libido!

Mike Huckabee has revealed my secret - Democrats have turned me into a beggar for cheap government birth control because I'm a helpless victim of my gender and I need pills to control my libido! Meanwhile the GOP proves how much it respects me by giving me mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds and freeing me from the burdens of making decisions about my body and earning equal pay - what 'war on women'?

How Not To Talk To Women 101

So far the GOP isn't doing so well in its effort to 'rebrand' itself and attract women voters. Maybe that's because all the suggestions about 'sensitivity' in the world don't matter if your policies haven't changed! So here's a musical reminder - contrary to the House Judiciary Committee chairman's ludicrous claims, Banning abortions is NOT a jobs bill!

Chris Christie is Shocked, Shocked Bullying Was Going On

There are so many holes in Governor Christie's story (if he's truly eager to get to the bottom of something he just learned about, wouldn't he ask a few questions of his staffers?, how could he lose 2 nights sleep the day after he just found out, etc.), it's way too easy to refute it. So I'm taking the low road, making musical fun of the whole thing. It's just too tempting!

No, Rand Paul, 2 + 2 Doesn’t Equal 6!

I know it's tempting to turn facts inside out to make ourselves feel better. But the facts are clear - extending unemployment benefits helps the economy, which means it would cost even less than that stupid government shutdown last year!

2013: A Year In Review

Oh what a year! The highs, lows, and moments of comic relief were truly operatic, so here's an opera-inspired musical recap.

Schmuck Dynasty: I Do Not Think Free Speech Means What You Say It Does

According to Faux Nooz, Godless, liberal anti-Americans have taken time off from the War On Christmas to attack Christians, namely Phil Robertson of A&E's "Duck Dynasty" for his recent comments about civil rights, homosexuality, and anatomy. When civil rights groups criticized Phil's remarks, the Faux Nooz crowd jumped to his defense, moaning about his right to free speech. To paraphrase the immortal words of Inigo Montoya: "I Do Not Think Free Speech Means What You Say It Does"

Guerilla Boycotts

“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1-3.

And the beast called itself GOP and written upon its seven heads are: Avarice, Cowardice, Entitlement, Homophobia, Ignorance, Misogyny, and Racism. And the meek shall cry out in agony. And the beast shall be slain by the Lamb, in their name. And the beast's name shall be erased from the minds of men forever.

Amen
