For Nancy Pelosi, and for a number of other politicians also pushing 80- who might consider following her lead and ALSO retiring like both Trump and Biden...here it is.

The traditional song you play at every retirement party for the boss. Made famous by Sinatra, but...other folks have also done interesting versions of it.

That one too! :D
In the UK theyre gonna hafta get used to hearing "God Save the King" now.

But for a metaphorical monarch like Pelosi the song makes sense.

Pelosi could lip sync to this record.

I actually remember playing this song when Trump lost the 2020 election. I was filled with so much joy thinking the 4 years of turmoil would be over and things would get back to normal.


...such misguided hope I had.. :(

Ursula's song "Poor Unfortunate Souls" is how i picture any country or company doing business with the CCP. Which is metaphorically like selling their souls to the devil. :twisted:

A song to describe Vladmir Putin. The Psychopath trying to burn the entire world ground.

Kim Yo Jong. sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un, most powerful woman in North Korea and second most powerful political figure in her country next to her brother. Not to mention totally psychotic murderous whackjob and possibly her brother's successor.

There's strong suspicion she's a meth head.

Don't know what else to do but throw gabber at that.

All Politicians






Songfacts

Quote:
This song is about R. Budd Dwyer, who was the Pennsylvania state treasurer. He was tried and found guilty of racketeering, bribery, fraud, and conspiracy. On January 22, 1987, he called a press conference where he pulled out a gun, put it in his mouth, and pulled the trigger. He died instantly as cameras rolled and people in the room screamed. At least one TV station ran the footage on their local news.

Filter frontman Richard Patrick, who wrote the song, explained in a 2013 Songfacts interview: "Everyone says that at some point for something. They may throw a piece of paper into a garbage can from 10 feet and they're like, 'Hey, man, nice shot.' It's a strange way to talk about R. Budd Dwyer and suicides and stuff. It's almost like a little callous and almost sarcastic."

Filter took a lot of heat from people who felt this song was glorifying suicide. In response, the band released this statement: "The song 'Hey Man Nice Shot' is a reaction to a well-documented public suicide. It is not a celebration or glorification of taking one's own life. The phrase 'hey man, nice shot' is a reference to the final act itself, an expression of guts and determination of a person standing up for what they believe is right. We are extremely sensitive and respectful to the family and friends of Mr. Dwyer. We have both lost friends to suicide and felt nothing but sympathy and loss for the victims, and those involved in such a tragedy."





This has evolved to be about a number of conservative and right-wing politicians as the years have gone by

The suspicion that Putin has some kinda terminal illness is getting stronger based upon his increasingly visible physical decrepitude at public events, and the like.

So... cant help but have a fantasy of him on his deathbed seeking last moment redemption. And imploring Mama to put his 'guns [war machine] into the ground'.

You hear that ...thats the secret of her slender good looks. Genetically she would be a fatty like her brother. But the meth keeps her weight down. But gives her yellow eyes (if you look closely they say).

So ... a meth head with her finger on the nuclear button?

Who is also a dark haired evil beauty?

This song is custom made for her.
