We Did It! Lynnrockets Wins!

We are happy to announce that Lynnrockets has won the WRKO “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Thanks to all of you supporters there will now be a liberal voice on Boston’s biggest conservative talk radio station starting in January. In light of the conservative host lineup and audience, I am expecting to be the target of much vitriol but I believe I am tough enough to be up to the task. After all, I can just keep reminding myself that they are the minority in this bluest city in the bluest state.

Lynnrockets’ Blast -Off is not going anywhere, however. It will still be my priority to put the same effort into this blog. The only difference will be that my voice will now be heard in more than one venue. If any of you are interested in seeing how things are going in radio-land, the AM 680 WRKO website is here.

Once again, I thank all of you for your votes and support. Now let’s get back to the blog.

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s rather personal song parody.

I WRITE THE SONGS

(sung to the Barry Manilow song “I Write The Songs”)

I sling the jive whenever,
I sit down and scribble a song
I put the words and Republicans together
I love music,
And I love these songs

I write the songs that I hope you folks sing
I write the songs to dethrone G.O.P. kings
I write the songs that expose all their lies
I write the songs, I write the songs

I’m from a state that’s deep blue,
And we make a damned good lobster roll
No, there aren’t many right wing guys
There’s some but then, all of them are very old

I write the songs that attack the right wing
I write the songs that I hope linger and sting
I write the songs that prompt Glenn Beck to cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh, I’ll take a hostile stance
When Limbaugh begins to rave and rant
And I’ll lead you to a poll, he can’t disprove
Palin has no heart,
So, I will tear her life apart
Hannity, Coulter too,
Also, too, O’Reilly
None of them can hide from me !!!

I write the songs about Mark Sanford’s flings
I write the songs about Larry Craig’s stings
I write the songs about Mark Foley’s guys
I write the songs, I write the songs

I write the songs about Joe Wilson’s slings
I write the songs of Vitter’s diapery things
I write the songs about all of those guys
I write the songs, I write the songs

I love music, so I write these songs
