It hasn’t been that long since Jake Tapper made to leap from ABC News into his own well-received show on CNN — does he really want to risk his professional credibility now by suggesting government look to the lyrics of “Ice Ice Baby” for guidance?

Once you think about it, there’s more to the suggestion than there might seem at first.

Does anyone remember any more lyrics than that, and is willing to admit it? George H.W. Bush was president when “Ice Ice Baby” was on the charts.

    Vanilla Ice has far more intelligence in his pinky finger than the collective whole of CNN.

    That is how dumb CNN is.

      Years ago I would have been ashamed to admit this but Vanilla Ice is a pretty good role model. He invested his earnings wisely and has a thriving real estate/construction business and even his own show. So yeah, he is a LOT more intelligent than Congress.

    Got no problem with Ice.

    Vanilla Ice is old hat. Get with the times, yo! Justin Beiber’s where it’s at! Oh. Wait…

    • NRPax

      Sadly, I have more respect for Vanilla Ice than Justin Beiber.

    Actually, I remember when MTV did its retirement show of “Ice, Ice Baby” with Vanilla Ice and Vanilla went berserk, bashing the crap out of the video cassette and having a total mental breakdown. I’m thinking DC is already past this point…

    • TheOriginalDonald

      If memory serves me correctly, Janeane Garofalo was on that show.

    Ice Ice Baby might seem like it has good advice for politicians, but what they really need is to be Under Pressure.

      Frank Herbert?

    • NRPax

      OK, that remark was well done. I’m impressed.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I’m not Under Pressure, I’m Ice Ice Baby! It’s all about that ITTY BITTY CHANGE!-BRock

  • NRPax

    Jake Tapper wants Washington to learn from Vanilla Ice.

    Fade away into the private sector and not bother anybody? I could get behind that.

    Robert VanWinkie a.k.a. “Vanilla Ice” was a one-hit wonder, who at one time, thought the world revolved around him, and that was his downfall #MusicTriviaTime I didn’t really like his song that much… Jawamax 8<{D}

    • dtom_molonlabe

      His downfall? The dude is set for life and is doing one of his true loves which is home construction/design (and is on DIY i think)… I think he’s doing quite well for himself for such a downfall you claim.

      Vanilla Ice is a good guy who invested wisely and owns a successful business along with a TV show. Also, he isn’t a one hit wonder to me……www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx7dt0Wscpc

    Steal from Bowie?

  • Ed

    I like Jake. Leave him alone. Vanilla Ice is actually a pretty sharp guy.

  • Douglas Williford

    It’s backward. They should listen, collaborate, and stop.

  • gekkobear

    I bet he ends up “Under Pressure” over that comment.
