The Lyrics

I know. Many big city mayors have affairs. Maybe it is part of the job description. But it’s still a good story when the pending divorce of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his wife (Corina Raigosa) is reported by a TV news anchor (Mirthala Salinas) – and she’s the other woman.
Who can resist sex? Not Villaraigosa!
He fell in love with a Mexican girl.
When he was interviewed by Miss Salinas,
His mind would stray and his pants would unfurl.

He once pledged his love to his wife Corina,
They linked their names and endured twenty years.
Now there is hurt in his rejected maiden.
Is it heartache or a pain in the rear?

Once side by side, that was how they ran,
Tight as the Huxtable clan.
Dear and devoted, this myth they promoted
‘Til one day Corina learned she was unloved.

For no stranger should
Know what was known by that beautiful anchor
Who did the Spanish-language TV news.
She vividly described LA’s current mayor
And gave the locations of all his tattoos.

Mirthala’s reporting was legendary;
For obtaining answers, she had a knack.
When she posed probing questions to the mayor,
He gave her answers, then he probed her back.

She wanted to ask about certain rumors,
And the unfaithfulness rumor arose.
But Villaraigosa denied the rumor;
Then he got angry and put on his clothes.

Antonio knew he needed a woman,
Someone in whom to confide.
He found a bold one, more fun than the old one,
He saddled up and away he did ride.

Now Antonio
Has many critics who blame this fiasco
On the home wrecker from Telemundo.

He wanted to try some damage control
So he met once with the press.
Though his explanation seemed very awkward,
He wouldn’t say more and he couldn’t say less.

So now that voters
Are able to assess Villaraigosa
And his feeble answers, is he OK?
He has gone public and he can go forward
After he hears what the pundits all say.

Off to the right, he hears five scolding talk shows.
Off to the left, they’re a little more fair.
Shouting and feuding, there is no disputing:
Only one person defends the poor mayor.

On Telemundo, one beautiful anchor
Issues a favorable press release:
“Though the mayor might have groped crudely for words,
Groping’s his area of expertise!”

So his love for
Corina is gone but that does not disturb her;
In the mayor’s mansion is where she will stay.
As he lives elsewhere, the mayor will soon learn
How much it costs to get screwed in LA.

From out of nowhere, a lawyer has found him;
He says the cost of divorce will be high.
Antonio must pay for his indiscretions;
He can now kiss all his assets good-bye.

On the one hand, California doesn't need any more reckless, stupid politicians, and L.A. still hasn't had a good Mayor since at least the Fifties. I told someone yesterday the last virtuous man to come out of L.A.'s City Hall was Superman, as the building was the stand-in for the Daily Planet in the 1950s TV show. On the other hand... have you SEEN Mirthala? Ay yi yi yi, canta y no llores! She ain't no Monica... or Camilla, for that matter! Still, you gotta have pretty big, uh, ovaries to report the Mayor's breakup, and not say you're the reason why. (On a slightly related subject: They both deny she is now pregnant; Nicole Richie couldn't be reached for comment.) And this guy thought he was gonna replace Arnold as Governor? (Then again, Arnold's indiscretions didn't stop him!) Anyway, I give you a five for the parody, four points for making it really good, and the fifth for not suggesting, in this week of David Vitter, that such behavior is endemic, or limited, to Democrats. (L.A.'s elections are supposedly non-partisan, anyway.)

She kissed and told and they blew it. Your security code - minus the i -kinda describes what I think of them.

Interesting current event yarn, and very well spun

Thanks you, Michael, 2Eagle, and AFW. Yes, Michael, saying that Mirthala is no Monica or Camilla is an understatement. Her photo is linked above. I'm not sure whether this will affect Villaraigosa's electability as Arnold's replacement, but he is the national co-chairman for the 2008 presidential campaign of you-know; and she is now somewhat annoyed to be linked to another man who can't his trousers buckled.

Do Roger Mahoney next!

A valid suggestion, Ooh! Ooh! But John Barry did him effectively today in a parody that said most of what I would say (and a little bit more).
