Say it Ain't So!

Rita Jenrette Our name was taken from a racy Washington scandal of the time we began, in 1981. Just recently, former congressional wife Rita Jenrette spoke out and denied the legend, 30 years later! We're sticking with her original story.

We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of January 22

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has a tough job to do: explaining the president's "tough language", proving that he's not a racist, and generally making sure that information is accurate — just the way the president likes it. And during the government shutdown (by "obstructionist losers") she'll have to keep doing her job for free.

Week of January 15

The federal government is heading for another shutdown this week, unless Congress heeds the call of bipartisan statesmen like Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell for the other side. That's part of the reason the approval rating for Congress is even lower than Donald Trump's.

Week of January 8

Alabama voters didn't mind when Roy Moore was twice thrown out of office for failing to uphold the Constitution, which was after all a job qualification for being Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court. But a slim majority drew the line when it came to allegations of "dating" teenagers. Out of Washington and out of a job, Roy is heading back to the mall.

Week of January 1

New Year's Eve in Washington? Bah, humbug! Not for President Trump, especially if it means spending yet another weekend in that dump called the White House. (Which he never called it.) That's why he's starting the new year with another "working vacation" at one of his own classy properties.

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017).
New! See live performance video on YouTube!.

Week of December 25

President Trump says the GOP tax bill is "an incredible Christmas gift" for "hard-working Americans." Thanks, Santa! But until the changes kick in next year (and after they expire), you'll have to manage on your own.

From the album O Christmas Bush (2006).

Week of December 18

Donald Trump Jr. has been ducking Congressional questions about his Russian contacts that could implicate his father. Don Jr. has so much in common with his father, and even more at stake to defend.

Week of December 11

With so many cases of sexual misconduct in the news, one man took on the job of finding the truth.

Week of December 4

When the going gets tough, Trump gets tweeting. He might have finally gone too far for his own good by admitting to obstruction of justice. No, wait, it wasn't him, it was his lawyer who sent that one out. And if Trump didn't write it, then it's just more fake news!

From the album Orange Is the New Barack (2017).

Week of November 27

Mike Pence has a tough job keeping up with his boss. He opposed Roy Moore before it was cool, then supported him when Trump changed sides, then he flipped sides again when new allegations came out — and yet he's still one flip-flop behind the boss. Pence did follow orders when he walked out of the Colts-49ers football game before it started. Was that about the anthem protests or maybe about something else?

Week of November 20

Apple is once again the target of stumped law enforcement officials who can't gain access to a criminal's phone. This time, it's the Sutherland Springs shooter's iPhone (even though TouchID works on dead people's fingerprints). The F.B.I. has battled before with Apple over its encryption, demanding that the company devise a back door for agents who couldn't hack in on their own. The company resisted, and the F.B.I. finally resorted to paying professional hackers more than $1 million. Now we know, thanks to WikiLeaks, that their colleagues over at the C.I.A. had the tools they wanted all along. And thanks to the N.S.A.'s own screwups, pretty much anyone except the F.B.I. would have any easy time at it.

See live performance video on YouTube! From the album What to Expect When You're Electing (2016).

Week of November 13

The GOP has a history of investigating its own sex scandals that could come in handy if Roy Moore gets elected. Back when former Oregon Senator Bob Packwood was accused of sexually harassing his staff, the chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee — none other than Mitch McConnell — documented his "gross and persistent misconduct," forcing Packwood to resign. The lesson learned? It's a really bad idea to keep detailed diaries.

From the album Return to Center (1996).
