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 February 8

Jeb! is getting desperate. His donors are nervous, his supporters are dazed, and his outlook in the New Hampshire primary is poor. And Donald Trump isn't letting up, either. (His latest taunt: "Mommy can't fix your campaign!") So the family is fighting back, and Jeb's super PAC is underwriting new ads featuring a very presidential endorsement.

From our newest album, Mock the Vote (2015).


Week of February 1

Bernie Sanders flip-flops just ahead of the Iowa caucuses. First he was sick and tired of hearing about Hillary's "damn e-mails." Now that some of them turn out to have been top secret (and now that his campaign is under more pressure), he says it's "a very serious issue." Finally, an issue where Bernie and all Republicans agree!


Week of January 25

Heading into the nineteenth GOP debate, frontrunner Donald Trump objected to Megyn Kelly returning as a moderator. Instead he wants Fox News, the debate sponsor, to find some terrific women who would be very, very, very classy and not ask too many hard questions.

See a live performance on YouTube.


Week of January 18

The amazing Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican campaign, thanks to the huge appeal of his New York values and a really, really smart campaign message.


Week of January 11

Less than a month to go until the voting begins! This presidential election cycle has had more candidates (and crazier ones) than ever before, so it's time to review the choices before we pick a new leader for the next four years.


Week of January 4

Bill Clinton's past is "fair game," according to Donald Trump, since Hillary is constantly "playing the woman card." It's a risky strategy. The idea seems to be that if she can't control her husband, how can she run the country? But Trump overlooks the fact that Hillary actually does know exactly what it takes to keep him in line.

From the album First Lady and the Tramp (1999)


Week of December 28

Hillary Clinton's Kwanzaa outreach on Twitter this weekend was another campaign fail, appreciated on the Internet just as much as her recent hispandering. Luckily for her, polls show Americans are becoming less concerned about the "War on Christmas."

From the exclusive online holiday album Weiner Wonderland (2011)
