The Lyrics

The media demanded that President Biden hold a press conference. He did. He talked about what the nation wanted to hear: Progress against COVID. The media didn't want to talk about that. Well, Biden doesn't work for them.
(instrumental opening)

Some girls
like to run their mouths
and ask stupid questions in D.C.
But I know
what folks are about
and I know they'd rather be with me.

Me oh my.
(Me oh my.)
Lucky guy is what I am.
Media don't understand:
I don't lie, although I can.

Some boys
(Some boys)
run for President.
They don't think about the things they do.
But this boy
(this boy)
got the vaccines sent
'cause he wants to see you get them, too!

Me oh my.
(Me oh my.)
Lucky guy is what I am.
Media don't understand:
I don't brag, although I can.

(instrumental break)

Some folks
(Some folks)
wish they still had Trump
for the ratings that they know they'd see.
But I am
(I am)
the one who got him dumped
and I know you'd rather be with
yeah, you'd rather be with
you know you'd rather be with me.

(La-pa-pa-pa, la-pa-pa!)
And you know you'd rather be with me!
(repeat 'til fade)

52 votes out of 46 views. Do I see an analogy here?

I am going to assume that Jeff In Richmond will read this. Jeff, iff you're not seeking comments, why do you bother posting here? Two of my favorite right wing sites, "American Thinker" and "Survival Blog" recently suspended public comments. Everyone is afraid of free speech. I'd hate to see AIR go that way. Since I don't vote on the 555 system, comments are the only way I can gauge reaction to my parodies. By the way, it was a very good "American Pie" rendition. A tough song, requiring a lot of imagination. I won't use Michael's site to comment, though I trust he would be in agreement with most of what you wrote.

Too many people have tried to invert the quote attributed to Voltaire and, perhaps, others, about how he would defend to the death the right of someone to express their opinion/s even if there was disagreement. I don't agree with any number of parody author viewpoints but I agree they have the right to post what they please, so long as they are in accordance with AIR's standards/guidelines, etc. In the same way, they are free to review or ignore anything I've added to this site (admittedly, with less than 40 "Malcolms", I don't have very much on this site). As I write this, there are 53 views and 53 votes (likely more by the time I finish) and i for one appreciate the effort you put into making this. We may agree or disagree but we can all agree that we are living in difficult times ("perilous times", as the King James Version of the Bible calls it) and a little humor helps out a lot.

So now we have a suspect: Jeff in Richmond. Well, Jeff, Richmond was the Confederate capital, and Ulysses S. Grant taught it a lesson. All I can do is call you a fool.

Michael, Jeff's "American Pie" knock off was a scathing indictment of Donald Trump, his supporters and the Republican Party. It was very similar to a youtube video you once linked me to on Facebook. It expresses the same sentiments concerning Trump that you have often written here and on Facebook. What I found amusing or interesting was that at the time I read your entry, there were already 52 555 votes, while there were only 46 views. Meaning someone voted more than once. An accusation frequently levelled at Democrats. I did not accuse Jeff, or anyone, of voting more than once, if at all. This happened to one of my entries not that long ago. Seemed strange that that many people would vote without leaving a comment. Richmond today is not the same place as in 1861. A recent internet "slide show" listed the "40 Most Miserable Cities in the USA". Nine of them were in New Jersey. A friend recently told me that New Jersey was the most beautiful state she had ever been to. She spent most of her life in Kansas City, however that might have influenced her views. I've been to Chicago and to Springfield. Two great contrasts in the same state. Of course that was over 30 years ago, so things have changed, as the weekly body counts in our local media indicate. Kansas City has some showcase neighborhoods, and places you'd only drive through on a Sunday morning when the locals are in bed. You just have to know which are which. And not learn the hard way.

Hey Guys! Just saw the posting and saw my name. I feel like Pontius Pilate in JC Superstar "Pilate's Dream" (".....and then I heard them mentioning my name, and leaving me the blame....") I didn't want any comments on American Pie for reasons explained in the posting. I didn't want to hear a bunch of crap from Trumpies. Obviously 54+ 1's is compliment enough that I rattled their snowflaky cages. Just wait until "Rainy Night in Georgia" gets finished. That parody is going RIGHT TO Brian Kemp's Facebook page!

Patrick, I don't know what reality you inhabit, but there is only one group on Amiright who repeatedly commits voter fraud, and it most evidently ain't Democrats. The Trump-supporting contingent here *always* do, and a bit like Trump himself are always accusing others of doing things they themselves do.

So far the only real life voting fraud proven in court that I'm aware of was someone who voted twice for Trump. So although the accusation may be frequently levelled at Democrats, only by people who want it to be the case, not by anyone who actually knows it has happened. So kindly stop lying.

Since I don't use the 555 voting system, I don't know how anyone could vote more 111 or 555 ratings than there are views. I know I can't post two comments at the same time. Comments are the only way I can know if my post has been read and has affected someone enough to inspire him or her to leave a reply. The whole thing reminded me of the vote controversy in November. I once knew a guy who voted five times in the 2008 election. Four times in Kansas and once in Missouri. It was quite simple, especially the way voter registration works around here. Oddly, he voted for the Libertarian candidate. You practically have to have top level security clearance to ride a bus, but no verification is allowed for voting. It's not the Republicans who are pushing to let people print their own ballots on a home computer. Chicago is, and always has been infamous for the "dead man ballot". Which party has run that city since time immoral? I have a belief that if people fight over something, there is probably something wrong or tainted about that something. It's been a long time since there was anything "holy" about the "Holy Land". Politics in this country is inherently evil. The proof is the fighting that it encourages.

While I kind of agree that politics over there is insane, read your own comments: you repeat lies about Democrats, and ignore (or excuse) appalling behaviour by anything Republican. It's dead easy to vote multiple times from the same browser session (obviously, otherwise the sort of idiot who thinks it's so clever wouldn't have worked it out).. but there's only one (very small, possibly n=1 for one incredibly pathetic soul) group of people who abuse the voting here on Amiright, giving unfeasible numbers of 5s to right wing crap, and 1s to anyone who has posted or commented something they don't like. I'm afraid you can't try and be the reasonable one while ignoring the elephant in the room. I am not trying to argue that the Democrat party is clean as the driven snow, but take the beam out of your own eye before picking at the mote in the other guy's.

I once had something like 46 votes on one of my postings, while there were fewer than 46 views. No comments at all. Someone just likes to play, I guess. I'm not here for numbers and don't really look at them. Look for a movie "The Free State of Jones". Couple years ago. I'm surprised it was ever shown in theaters. The KKK was the armed wing of the Democratic Party. Much the same as the SA and the NSDAP. The movie shows newly enfranchised former slaves casting Republican votes. The ballots were placed in a clear glass jug (transparency). When the votes were counted and reported, there were no Republican votes in that county. Every incident of voter fraud of this nature I've ever heard about was perpetrated by Democrats. All the Republicans are accused of is trying to verify that a voter is registered at his address and is eligible to vote. I guess that's what Democrats mean by "obstruction". More examples can be found in Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle". Same party ran Chicago in 1903 as today. Until the 1960's most Black citizens voted Republican (party of Lincoln and Emancipation) rather than Democrat (party of secession and Jim Crow). I recall hearing a quote from Lyndon Johnson about the results he was able to achieve from some civil righs and welfare legislation. Look it up.

Patrick, votes > views just means someone's clearing their cookies and re-voting. And it's blatantly obvious who does this.

The KKK was never "the armed wing of the Democratic Party" - about 100 years ago, at its most influential, it had a few million members and was trying to influence Republican and Democrat parties alike: tell me, what in this article would you say is inaccurate? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/made-by-history/wp/2018/03/15/how-social-media-spread-a-historical-lie/

I'm afraid saying "go see this movie" *never* counts as evidence for anything.. well, maybe evidence for propaganda existing. Compared to, say, that WP article which links to the various historical & current claims being made.

"Until the 1960s" similarly does not mean jack about what the state of the parties today are: *everybody* you're talking about being in the party heirarchies then are dead today. If you want to claim Democrats are dirty, find some relevant, timely evidence: you're surely not saying that they've got so good at it that they regularly poll millions more votes yet don't have power? (You do realize just how many more votes Democrats got for senate seats than Republicans did, right?)

Now, is it a group of people who is doing this, or is it just one individual who over votes to an insane degree? And as for the Trump faction, had any one of us ever left a comment to the effect of "Atta Boy; way to keep those leftards off balance; keep up the good work." In actuality, I keep saying "Knock it off, this doesnt help anything." ....... And now I'll say it again, "Hey Mega F-bomber Guy, you compromise our credibility when you do this .. so pretty please, with sugar on top, knock it the f-bomb off."
