There have been problems between President George Bush and several members of congress and the senate recently.
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, explained "The President was discussing funding for the Iraq war last week when he just stopped and asked me if I knew the words to that song 'Blinded by the Light'. He asked if I thought they were 'Dressed up like a deuce.' or 'Wrapped up like a deuce.' It was strange."
Senator Chris Dodd echoed the sentiments. "He keeps talking about what a 'bitchin song' it is, and asks me what version I like better. I didn't even know there were a few versions. I think he does it because he knows I like Led Zeppelin, and wants to bug me. The last time he brought it up, I started humming 'Stairway to Heaven' kind of quietly. I hope he got the message. I'm not going to let him get to me."
Joe Lieberman, an often supporter of the president, also had his issues. "The president said something the other day about how someone should 'ask me if I needed a ride' then he smiled, like it was a joke of some kind. I guess it's a line from that song. It's getting kind of annoying."
Republican senators were less critical, calling the whole thing "just a democratic ploy", although Senator Robert Bennett of Utah offered a less party line type response. "Last year the President kept talking about that Thin Lizzy song, 'The Boys are Back in Town' and just wouldn't let it go. He kept saying things like 'If the boys wanna' fight you better let em' in reference to congress. He gets into these tracks when he just won't give up on something, like he did with Donald Rumsfeld."
For his part, the President said "The song just rules! I like the guitar work too." although he said he would try to choose songs that would be more bipartisan. He added "How about that Boomtown Rats song 'I Don't Like Mondays?' Wicked piano solo. Who's with me on this one?"
