I like Mike Weinstein and I don’t care who knows it

Font Size:

I don’t know what he’s running for, and I don’t care. But for the last few days I haven’t been able to get this out of my head, and that’s alright with me:

Yes, it’s corny. Yes, Kenny Loggins should sue. I don’t care. It makes me happy and cringey and happy at being cringey all at the same time.

Our own Caroline May takes a closer look at Weinstein and his campaign ad for whichever office it is he wants. And she answers my main question: Yes, that kid is related to Weinstein. His son, specifically. I know what you’re saying: “Well, of course. Who else could get that pumped up about Mike Weinstein?” You know who else? Me, that’s who else. Me.

Mike! Mike! Mike! Weinstein! Workin’ hard for you and me! Yeah!! I would jump up and dance right now, if such a thing were still possible.

P.S. Here are some of the other lyrics I’ve been singing after “Mike! Mike! Mike! Weinstein!”

  • “Deeper than a submarine!”
  • “Doesn’t look like Martin Sheen!”
  • “If honor’s doo-doo, he’s the latrine!”
  • “The words he knows are all obscene!”
  • “I swear, I thought she was eighteen!”

What are some of yours?
