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 July 16

House Republicans won't have Paul Ryan to kick around anymore once he steps down in January, nor will Donald Trump. Or the Democrats. Or even the woodchucks who ate his car! Join us for this send-off sing-along.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of July 9

Why did former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt want his wife to open a Chick-fil-A? Why did Sarah Huckabee Sanders get kicked out of the Red Hen Restaurant? What is it with this administration and poultry?!? To find out, Rachel Maddow invited KFC's Colonel Sanders to debate the question, but he declined. So she turned to #2 and #3 on her list.

Week of July 2

Justice Kennedy's retirement from the Supreme Court is expected to set off a political battle, but it would be hard to match the battles that preceded his own nomination. Kennedy was President Reagan's third choice. After Robert Bork was rejected for his views and Douglas Ginsburg dropped out for having smoked marijuana, the president decided to go with a consensus candidate. Those were the days! Here are two songs hoisted from the 1987 archives.

From the album Workin' 9 to 10 (1987).

Week of June 25

Paul Ryan's legacy as speaker won't include some of his biggest ambitions, like Obamacare repeal or entitlement reform. And the way things are going lately, it's not likely to include immigration reform either. At least he'll be remembered for championing the GOP tax cuts.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).

Week of June 18

Immigration politics is heating up on both sides of the southern border. At the recent G-7 summit, President Trump offered to send 25 million Mexicans to Japan. Which could be a problem, because he doesn't even have that many! Unless he changes his mind, yet again, and lets more in.

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

Week of June 11

Justin Trudeau is diplomatic, but no match for his late father. When President Nixon insulted Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau — using much stronger language than "dishonest & weak" — the elder Trudeau replied, "I've been called worse things by better people." Canada now plans to retaliate by imposing its own trade barriers on imports from the U.S. of steel, aluminum, and liberals trying to move north. So the next time Trump says Americans should leave the country, they might have one less place to go.

Week of June 4

Rudy Giuliani latest gem: Trump could have shot James Comey to end the Russia investigation, and he couldn't be indicted for it. That would have been a lot faster — and cheaper! — than firing him. Trump plans to add one more legal point he learned from former President Nixon: "when the president does it, that means it is not illegal."

Week of May 28

Obamacare premiums are set to jump 15 percent next year, according to a new CBO report. That could lead to a "death spiral" that pushes up the number of uninsured Americans. If you're among them, don't worry! There are cheaper ways to get health care.
