Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Wag The White House Dog

Stan Freberg here. So Buddy, the White House's "first dog," doesn't get along with Socks, the "first cat." Well, hey! Socks is a Democrat, and Clinton obviously got a Republican dog. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. There were a lot of names suggested for Clinton's dog. One of my favorites was the name "Shoes," to go with Socks, the cat.

I also liked "Arkanpaws," but considering the President's recent troubles, the name "Subpoena" might have been funny: "Here, Subpoena, come on, boy!"

After all his problems with fundraising, some Republicans have suggested "101 Donations." Harry Truman once said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog," so, that's what Clinton did.

A cartoon by Kevin Sires shows Buddy the dog in jail. He's saying to his cellmate, "Same old story. One minute I'm Bill Clinton's best friend, the next minute I'm indicted."
