How do you free Obama from Maria?

A special surprise for our own Charles Henrickson who frequently guest hosts the DUmmie FUnnies in addition to pastoring wayward Lutherans in the St. Louis area. His song parody, How Do You Free Obama From Maria? has now been produced into a VIDEO by Henry Gomez of the BABALU BLOG. In addition to being one of the top biblical scholars around including being fluent in several dead languages (Aramaic, ancient Greek, etc.) and some live ones (Swedish, German, etc.), Charles is easily the BEST song parodyist out there. In fact, his Palm Beach Pokey PARODY became the theme song of the Florida 2000 election fiasco and was played on by many radio stations around the country at that time. Unfortunately Charles was NOT credited by name as the author of that 2000 post-election theme song.

However, we shall now attempt to rectify that situation with the first of what I hope will be many of the Charles Henrickson parody songs to be featured on YouTube (and hopefully radio stations). And featured here today from YouTube is Charles' most recent song parody, How Do You Free Obama From Maria? based on the song, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria.? Read the Henrickson parody lyrics as you hear the song in this video. Both the video and the lyrics are based on the controversy caused by Obama volunteer, Maria Isabel, who had a Che Guevara flag displayed in her office as you can see discussed in the previous DUmmie FUnnies EDITION.

The next step will be to produce a video with a singer performing the Henrickson parody lyrics of not only this song but many of the SCORES of parody songs that Charles has written over the past few years. In particular I would love to see I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOVE HIM from the musical Barack Obama Superstar produced as a YouTube musical video. Of course, such a video would have to feature scenes of Chris Matthews cooing over his Obamassiah as bolts of thrill run up his leg.

In the meantime, enjoy this video. Hopefully there will be MORE to come. This being an election year means there will be a BIG demand for such parody songs which can be played on radio stations with attribution (and hopefully remuneration) to Charles.

Oh Henry! I happen to know of a professional singer here in Broward County named Barbara Ford and...

Thanx. However, check the video again. It has been updated so it is MUCH EASIER to read the parody lyrics.

This NEEDS to be performed!

Humor is the most effective way to point up a foible, a looney, a loser.

Hence dummiefunnies.

End Brit Hume's show with this, and Obama is a wounded deer.

I hear ya! Hopefully we will produce these videos in the future with the lyrics sung by professional singers. In particular by Barbara Ford whom I mentioned in this DUFU edition. BTW, we already have the best parody lyrics ever written (also by Charles Henrickson) based on the song "I Don't Know How To Love Him" from Jesus Christ Superstar called "I Don't Know Why I Love Him" from Barack Obama Superstar. You can see those parody lyrics HERE.

Yes. It. Is.

This is why Stewart and Colbert are so popular. Can you point to a right-wing-funny-thing other than this esteemed site that's as funny? I can't think of one. Not one. Can you? And don't give me Dennis Miller.

Maybe it's because there's more foibles, loonies and losers inhabiting the east wing of the forest. No. That can't be right.

Who?

Maybe in La-La Land.
I understand that some lefties actually think Stewart is a NEWS show.

Shambhala,

Absolutely... When the DUmmies consistently lose, they need something to grasp onto. Colbert and Stewart are their "Oh yeah? Nyah nyah!" guys.

They need someone "popular" to nod their lemming heads in agreement with... It's why Obama's so popular - they can't say WHY they like Obama, just that it's not evil Republicans, so it MUST be good.

It's all they have, really.

It's comforting to know that you'll always post things twice...just so we really get it. Thanks.

However, your depiction of Colbert and Stewart as "all they have left", though ironic, is pretty stupid. But what else is new?

Ummm...70% of the country wants out of Iraq. W's approval numbers are...you know. And Colbert and Stewart are all the Dems has left?

Keep it up, Son.

Thanks, anonymous!

I think you get your "70% of the country" statistics from the same place your poop comes from, but thanks for the compliment!

Prove it. Current stats. Understanding your denial is the first step.
