From The Archives – Monica Lewinsky Parody – [AUDIO]

I had a request for a song I did right in the midst of the famous Monica Lewinsky/ Bill Clinton scandal of 1998.  Being that she's been in the news again, I thought it might be a good time to dig it out of mothballs.

How Come Andy Is Never Home? A Song For Governor Cuomo [VIDEO]

This has been a question for many of us in Albany - Is  Governor Andrew Cuomo content to stay in the area, or does he have bigger plans? I decided to take this issue on musically, with apologies to Blake Shelton and Michael Buble.

Is There A Politician You Would Like To Throw In The Garbage? This Angry Mob In Ukraine Did It

I suppose there are a lot of us who would like to throw a politician in a dumpster. Heck, lots of times I'd like to throw them all away and start over. But we never actually do it. I guess that is not the way it works in Ukraine.

An Open Letter To Governor Andrew Cuomo – (Conservatives Please Read Before You Leave The State)

Earlier I wrote "An open letter to Richard Sherman" of the Seattle Seahawks in regard to his post game antics last night, and the many other occurrences of bad sportsmanship that he has shown. I wrote it with love and tried very hard to understand where he comes from and tried to help him to learn some things that life has taught me the hard way. In the end though, that is football, one man and in the end will not really effect me or you.

Our politicians however, effect all of us tremendously. That is why it is with a little bit less "understanding" that I write this "Open Letter  To Governor Andrew Cuomo". I should also note that this letter could and should be directed at all of these so called leaders we have running our towns, states and country.

President Obama Will Fight for Health Care Law

Yesterday President Obama tried to remind Americans why they wanted health care to begin with.  It seems like ever since the disgraceful launch of the Affordable Care Act's website, Americans, led by social media and traditional forms of media, have forgotten why we ever thought we needed it!

At a health care event at the White House yesterday, Obama said, "We're not repealing it as long as I'm president
