Parody Song Takes Aim at Cheney
The Bob Rivers Show, takes aim at the recent mishaps of Vice President Dick Cheney with their latest release. The gold record-holding Seattle morning radio show host (KZOK 102.5 FM) has produced "Dick Cheney's Got a Gun," a hilarious rendition of Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun," skewering the Vice President's ineptitude. The new song feature's co-host Spike O'Neill on vocals and is available as a free downloadable mp3.
Fresh from the production of three parody songs for Super Bowl XL, The Bob Rivers Show ( www.bobrivers.com) has quickly turned their attention to the White House and the bungling in Texas. "We don't make the news," show host Bob Rivers said. "We just take shots at it. If I were Vice President Cheney, I would have immediately called (SNL executive producer) Lorne Michaels and asked to do the sketch myself. This could be all pre-planned. I picture Cheney asking his good friend Harry Whittington to take one for the team, upstaging stories of prisoner abuse at Guantanamo Bay, Domestic Spying, and coke smuggling Air Marshals."
