Ted Kennedy hosting own TV talk show

By United Press International

Friday, January 21, 2005

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., one of the best-known figures in American politics, is hosting his own community-access cable TV show.

"It's been a kick," Kennedy told the Boston Globe.

His weekly half hour show, "Capitol Perspective," which the Globe says is equal parts C-SPAN and Rosie O'Donnell and vaguely reminiscent of "Wayne's World," is seen in 158 Massachusetts communities.

He said he started the show to better communicate with the people of Massachusetts.

"What's that, Mary Jo? You can't breathe? The water's coming up over your head? Huh? I don't understand. What are you trying to say?"

Funny you should mention that. This is going to be one of the cuts on the new Uncleshag/DFU Parody CD ---

MIDI - SURREY WITH THE FRINGE ON TOP (scroll to "From Oklahoma")

Mary Jo, come for a drive with me
With the wind in our hair we'll feel free
I have all the power of two hundred horses
We will have a fun time, you will see

Fords and Cads and Jags better scurry
'Cause I'll really be in a hurry
'Cause I'll really be in a hurry in my Oldsmobile

You are making my dingy quiver
I am hoping you will deliver
I know a nice place by a river where I'll cop a feel

It's automatic and the engine sure purrs
It has air for summer weather
And if I am naked while I fool around
My butt sometimes sticks to the leather

Mary Jo, you're cute as a model
Will you pass one more Chevas bottle
You'll see when I step on the throttle it will be surreal
It is always an adventure in my hot Oldsmobile

I've a technique I haven't varied
Let us just pretend I'm not married
Let us just pretend I'm not married in this Oldsmobile

I know sometimes I am conniving
My friend just took my test for diving
But I swear that I'm fit for driving so it's no big deal

It's automatic and the engine sure purrs
It has air for summer weather
And if I am naked while I fool around
My butt sometimes sticks to the leather

Mary Jo, you're cute as a model
Will you pass one more Chevas bottle
You'll see when I step on the throttle it will be surreal
It is always an adventure in my hot Oldsmobile

When we hit the road, if it's raining
There will be no need for complaining
My brakes I've always been maintaining in my Oldsmobile

It's well known that I hold my liquor
Most officials get drunk much quicker
There's a barf bag if I get sicker after that big meal

It's automatic and the engine sure purrs
It has air for summer weather
And if I am naked while I fool around
My butt sometimes sticks to the leather

Mary Jo, you're cute as a model
Will you pass one more Chevas bottle
You'll see when I step on the throttle it will be surreal
It is always an adventure in my hot Oldsmobile

Ted baby, will have a skit based on his exceptional abilities as Kommander of "Olds-Crimson-Quidick" tour guide expeditions. Better yet, how to commit murder and get away free. It will be based on something like dial 1-800-OJ-B-Free. I believe he will have his cousin skakel firmed up as his first mate on board since they have so much in common. The (kennedy's) aren't they such a great (POS) or work? NSNR
