Janet Reno Moves Into Clive Davis’ Turf

janetreno.jpgAfter spending eight years as the U.S. Attorney General, Janet Reno is finally going to be among the country’s most despicable, disreputable criminals: She’s getting into the record biz!

According to a press release, Reno is overseeing Song Of America, a three-disc, fifty-track collection of Bali funk-rap historically minded tunes. According to a statement:

Janet Reno explains, “I thought that music would be a great way to engage listeners, especially young listeners, and spark their interest so they could gain a greater understanding and appreciation for our history. I am very proud to be associated with this collection of inspired performances.

Songs include Take 6′s version of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Danielson’s “Happy Days Are Here Again” and Devendra Banhart’s “Little Boxes.” Clearly, Reno wants you to let your freak-flag fly! But not really, as that’s against federal flag laws.

  1. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    Is this in association with her highly rated “Janet Reno’s Dance Party?” Because these don’t sound like tunes to get the crowd moving.

    “WE DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THAT CRAP! PLAY MY SONG!!!

    I can’t wait for some of the other choice tracks on the album, namely:

    “This Land Is [My] Land[, Bitch]” by 50 Cent
    “The Star Spangled Banner (O, Say, Can You See? Because I Can’t)” by Stevie Wonder
    “Born In The U.S.A.” by Arnold Schwarzenegger
    “You And I [Can Fly Canadian Airlines]” by Celine and Hill
    and, who can forget?:
    “Allahu Ahkbar (The Iraq/Afghan/Qaeda National Anthem)” as performed by Barry Hussein.

    @goodreverend: Woah, woah, woah! I’m having a Comedy Gold overload! Save those gems for when Fox News ramps up “The 1/2 Hour News Hour” again!

    I’m the reason it went off the air. :(

    Janet Reno? You’re pulling our collective legs. This is the young assistant to Craig T. Nelson in “Coach.”
