Sen. John McCain: I’ve been in politics for over 20 years. And for over 20 years, I’ve had Barbera Streisand trying to do my job. So I decided to try my hand at her job. Check out this classic:

“Memories, light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories, of the way we were.”

Do I know how to sing? About as well as she knows how to govern America! Here’s another gem for ya:

“Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you see-ee-ee me-ee?”

Pretty annoying, huh? Now you know how I feel! My new CD is a must for all of Barbra Streisand’s fans, as well as log-cabin Republicans. And a special added bonus, just for Babs – a portion of all sales will be used to damage Alaskan wildlife preserves. So, order today!

“Nobody, but nobody’s gonna rain on myyyyyy parade!”
