Uncle Jay Explains: Apr. 19, 2010

SPECIAL SINGING EPISODE!  Iceland’s volcano?   That’s nothing like the coming eruption over a new Supreme Court nominee.    Uncle Jay prepares you for the left’s/the right’s strong support/strong condemnation for him/her by liberals/conservatives with a song/song!

    Wow! That was neat UJ! Kinda says it all – had to be fun to create and edit.

  2. Miltiades Says:

    Uncle Jay – you’re terrific this week; the singing episodes are the best and you punctured the sacred cows left and right.

  3. Grandpa Gene Says:

    After all the other news commentators have departed, only Uncle Jay is left.


    NO! HE’S LEFT!


    He’s just correct… (sigh…)

  4. Kathy Says:

    Award winning!!!

  9. Ried Says:

    Grandpa Gene,
    Uncle Jay is NOT Politically Correct! (That’s why we all like him!)

    Appropriate hugs and kisses,

  10. Jen Singer Says:

    One of your best, Uncle Jay. This one gets shared with all my classmates.

  12. Chris Garner Says:

    Great, great, great! I loved it. Excellent job, UJ. Perfect musical accompaniment, too.

  13. Cheesed Off 17 Says:

    So true UJ. Thanks for the laugh.

  14. Paula Reynolds Says:

    Uncle Jay, you are freaking terrific!!! Fair and balanced…and hilarious – doesn’t get much better than that! Touche!

  15. Laura M Says:

    Uncle Jay,

    That was great. Who knew that the justices could sing? See you next week.

  16. Darren Marlar Says:

    This is one of your best posts yet, Uncle Jay! As a stand-up comedian I’m thinking I might just transcribe all of your posts and use them in my comedy shows! (Plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery, isn’t it?) Keep up the great work!

  17. Steve C Says:

    Bravo! Fantastically well done!

  18. Gerald A Says:

    Absolutely superb Jay! You nailed it dead on, as you do in most cases, but this one is tour de force!

  19. John P Says:

    Uncle Jay -

    Never in a million years would I expect someone to write lyrics to Dueling Banjos. That was incredible! Bravo Mr. Show Man! – eh, sorry – Mr. News Man!

  20. Tami Says:

    “Tour de force” sums it up well. Well done, Uncle Jay!

  21. Fred Says:


  22. Sara Pitbull Says:

    I love your musical episodes. They’re so in tune with today’s society and all them ADD folk.

    BTW, who plays the fiddle or banjo?

  23. Bill Warren Says:

    You just keep getting better and better. This week’s effort is outstanding, keep up the good work.

  24. Goldie Says:

    Great one Uncle Jay.
    I nominate to the Supreme Court:
    Microsoft Corporation.
    Just think of what an great job they can do now that they are considered to be just like a ‘Person’!
    And they meet the minimum requirement age. They already own the world, what’s one more piece?

  25. postalinVT Says:

    Oh..WOW. That was pure genius Uncle Jay.

  26. Ol James Says:

    Bravo, BRAVO!!!, Uncle Jay. can’t wait for an encore.

  27. Dr Mikey Says:

    Long time watcher, first time poster, but I can’t resist: that was freakin’ BRILLIANT!

    Uncle Jay Explains is about the best 3 minutes of political/social commentary I’ve yet seen on the web or anywhere else. According to Wikipedia WCPO-TV had him and let him go??!!!

    Uncle Jay should be doing the tagline on ’60 Minutes’ (well, it would be hard to get rid of Andy). This Week on ABC closes with their ‘Sunday Funnies’ (clips from Leno, Letterman et al); Meet the Press or Face the Nation should close with Uncle Jay!

    Is a letter-writing campaign in order?

  28. Lynne Lefebvre Says:

    Jay, you are so much funnier than David Letterman!
    This week was great. I’ve shared with all my friends
    who are upset over my varied stands. Let’s see,
    I support gay rights, I attended the Tea Party Rally with
    my Republican husband, I joined an Atheist group and
    I attend a “church” where ALL are welcome. I love it when
    folks are thoroughly confused.
    Glad to see Mary Gilbert and Rabbi Barr are contributing.
    More brilliant minds at work.
    Lynne Lefebvre.

  29. margie Says:

    This is my first time here. Wow that was GREAT. May I say, God Bless America? Is was said so shall it be !!!

  30. Sherri Says:

    This is the BEST Uncle Jay Explains EVER!!!!

    Have you ever considered running for president?

  31. Ethel Wainer Says:

    Spectacular!! Fantastic!! Movh-i-liss!!! xoxoxoxoxo

  32. peggy Says:

    I have to say, this is one of your best! You have the next debate nailed down right! I put a link to it on my facebook page to share with others.

  33. Jeremy Says:

    Wonderful Uncle Jay. I couldn’t resist adding another verse:

    Conservatives are all the same:
    “Respect the Constitution”
    Liberals have a different view:
    “New interpretation”
    Both sides strongly feel they’re right.
    Both sides blame the other.
    Neither party helps the fight
    And we’re the ones that suffer.

    (Fits pretty well with the dueling banjos music)

  35. Brian Dorfman Says:

    YAYZZ!!! uncle jay <3

  36. Sheik Yerbouti Says:

    Wow. Well done, Musical Uncle Jay.

    Goldie: You know, that might not be such a bad idea. If Microsoft were on the Supreme Court, maybe the government would mysteriously shut down and nobody would know how to get it started back up again without a system wipe.

  37. Phil Says:

    Good job on this one! Was I the only one who noticed your clever use of panning the vocal tracks? I thought it was pretty clever, though a much stronger effect with headphones on, of course :)

    Creativity Abounds! Great job
    Uncle Jay! Nicely Done and well stated.

  40. Shtanto Says:

    Uncle Jay, you have surpassed yourself. There aren’t enough stars in the sky to give this.

  41. Les Says:


  42. Bill Says:

    Those justices are an odd lot, aren’t they.
