Just Say No To Palin! It’s Your Duty

palin2012Hat

In light of Little Miss Sunshine’s recent luck in having 13 separate ethics complaints dismissed, she may once again believe that she will be a viable candidate in 2012. It is our duty to dissuade her of that notion at all costs. If that means singing a Village People song, then so be it…

Remember to click the song link below as it makes singing along much more fun!

2-0-1-2

(sung to the Village People song “Y-M-C-A”)

Sarah, there’s no need to feel down
I said, Sarah, just because you’re a clown
I said, Sarah, a smile isn’t a frown
There’s no need to be unhappy.

Sarah, you lost a race with McCain
I said, Sarah, you flushed him right down the drain
And you messed up all of your interviews
But you’re still on the nightly news

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

We’ll have such a good time when you fall on your face,
And we’ll revel in your disgrace…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You will have SarahPac, and a new running mate
To help spread Politics of Hate…

Sarah, are you listening to me?
I said, Sarah, you’ll have to go on TV
I said, Sarah, I’m sure we’ll laugh till we pee
And you’ve got to know this one thing!

You make a big ass of yourself
Every time that you open your mouth
You give ammo, to our friend Tina Fey
She just repeats the things you say…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You’ll get all of the votes from the states that are red
But, the G.O.P. is now dead…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, you’ll need a fork cuz you’re done…

Sarah, you’ll have a case of the blues
I said, Sarah, has no grasp of world views
But that’s OK, cuz she amuses us,
As we throw her under the bus…

That’s when she will realize that,
Her future, is modeling for “Arctic Cat”
Maybe she’ll host a reality show
If they pay her with enough dough.

We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2

She can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, she’ll need a fork cuz she’s done…

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll wear a big frown
Sarah, Sarah to us you are a clown

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll have a case of the blues
Sarah, Sarah I said, why don’t you just go vamoos.

Hog-Ridin’ Palin

Palin Chopper

The weekend and the Spring season seem to have arrived simultaneously. It is too nice a day to dive into the deep dark recesses of the reich-wing mind. Instead, let’s have a little lighthearted Saturday afternoon fun. Since the arrival of Spring also unleashes motorcycle enthusiasts across this “great nation of ours” (gratuitous Sarah Palin reference intended), we thought it would be a nice gesture to commemorate Ms. Palin’s appearence on the television show American Chopper with a song parody. Please sing along…

Born To Be Wild song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UWRypqz5-o

BORN TO BE REVILED

(sung to the Steppenwolf song “Born To Be Wild”)

Get your chopper runnin’
Head up to Alaska
Lookin’ for Wasilla
And the house where Sarah lives

Yeah Barbie go make a snowman
Tell the First Dude I want a race
Fire all of your guns at once
Don’t shoot someone’s face

She likes snowmachines though
Is it any wonder
Wearin’ “Arctic Cat”
And who knows what else under

Yeah Sarah take that Bridge to Nowhere
And that jet you sold on Ebay
Blast wolves from out of the sky
And then blast into space

Like a true selfish child
You were born
To be reviled
When you speak, you lie
Why Sarah Palin, Why?

Born to be reviled
Born to be reviled

You seem to think you’re stunnin’
You might impress that bike guy
Enough for a hog ride
It’s a thrill that you can’t buy

Hey Sarah you might get your own show
That they film in a warmer place
Do you have any tan lines,
Like the lines on your face?

Like a true selfish child
You were born
To be reviled
When you speak, you lie
Why Sarah Palin, Why?

Born to be reviled
Born to be reviled

Jay, (We Wish We Could Say) We Hardly Knew Ye (Talk Jock Jay Severin Update)

WKKK's Jay Severin

WKKK's Jay Severin

Tick, tick, tick… (waiting for the bomb to explode), or thud… (waiting for the other shoe to drop). The anticipation was overwhelming. Would Boston radio’s most racist, hate infused, name changing (his birth name is James Severino), pedigree embellishing (he falsely boasted on air to taking a master’s degree at Boston University and to having been awarded a Pulitzer prize), and obnoxious shock jock finally be fired by his employer station?

For those of you that have not read the May 19th and May 25th articles on this site (and by the way, why haven’t you?), Jay Severin is a reich-wing conservative talk show host who’s program aired on a Boston, MA radio station, known to us progressives as WKKK. Severin’s show however, was suspended by the station on April 30th as the result of the overwhelmingly negative response from both listeners and advertisers to his recent racist and hateful diatribe against Mexicans. That was certainly not the first time that Severin has “crossed the line” on air, but when coupled with his recent decline in ratings from 3rd place to 15th place in the coveted age 25 to 54 age bracket, it could have sounded his death knell.

It has now been more than a month since the inception of his suspension and we hoped that it would become permanent by means of his termination from the station (and hopefully from all of the Boston air waves). It should be noted however, that some ill-informed critics of the suspension continue to decry the suspension as a violation of Severin’s First Amendment right to free speech. Much like the amateur Constitutional Law experts that found fault with the criticisms recently levied against Ms. California, they fail to understand the protections granted by said amendment.

The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America protects citizens from governmental prohibition of free speech (except in rare circumstances that are not relevant to this article). Despite Severin’s suspension  by his radio station employer, he has, in no way, been prevented by the government from expressing himself. The First Amendment guarantees that Severin could go right on spewing his hate filled invectives whenever he pleases to do so. For instance, he could set up a soap box on the Boston Common and talk all he wants, or he could continue to publish his blog on the internets tubes, and he even has the right to establish his own radio station should he choose to do so.

The First Amendment does not however, entitle Severin to employment and compensation for his views from an unwilling private employer.  It is humorous when one considers that it is the right wing radio nuts that pretend to fear the re-institution of the broadcast “Fairness Doctrine”, yet they are the ones that protest the loudest when one of their own is silenced, not at the behest of the government, but rather, by the capitalist, private sector, profit driven, radio station owners. Some folks simply cannot be pleased when the non-regulated profit driven media works its magic.

For those of you that would like a little taste of what Jay Severin serves up on air on a daily basis, please listen to this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh3dR5QxB5U&feature=fvsr

But alas, our hopes have been dashed. Today’s Boston Globe and Boston Herald Republican report that WKKK has ended the suspension and Severino will return to the air on Tuesday,  June 2, 2009. His return, however, is contingent upon his toning down the on-air intolerant rhetoric. We can only hope that such a condition will be too difficult for Severino to live up to.

Also, too (ha ha ha, funny Sarah Palin reference), if any readers could provide us with some insight about their local right wing radio air-heads, please do so in the Comment section to this post.

And for those that like a good song parody, here you go…


That’s Amore song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69O4PXzAQ5Y

YOU’RE SO BORING (THE ODE TO RADIO’S JAY SEVERIN)

(sung to the Dean Martin song “That’s Amoré”)

In Old Beantown on the air-waves
When ratings fall here’s what they say

When the shit hits the fan and they give you the can
You’re so boring
When you become racist and then cease to exist
You’re so boring
Phones don’t ring ding-a-ling-a-ling, ding-a-ling-a-ling
And you’re no happy fella
Listeners cheer have another beer, have another beer
Like a gay acappella

When you are such a fool that your words incite drool
That’s abhorring
When the “Best and the Brightest” are the dumb and the whitest
You’re alone
When you’re name’s Severino but you drop the letter “O”
That’s deceiving
Scuzza me, but you see, you’ve no masters degree
That’s abhorring

(When the shit hits the fan and they give you the can
That’s abhorring) That’s abhorring
(When you become racist and then cease to exist
That’s abhorring) That’s abhorring
(Phones don’t ring ding-a-ling-a-ling, ding-a-ling-a-ling
And you’re no happy fella) Happy fel Happy fella
(Listeners cheer have another beer, have another beer
Like a gay acappella) Sorry fella

When your mouth’s spouting lies of a Pulitzer Prize
That’s abhorring (That’s abhorring)
When you no longer play on W-K-K-K
That’s real love
When you’re talking the talk but have nowhere to walk
Cuz you’re boring
Scuzza me, racist pig, but we hardly knew ye
You’re so boring, (So boring)
You’re so boring

Sarah Palin Show Tunes – 2

Evita Palin

Evita Palin

Need we say more?

Evita song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4oPWINVVEw&feature=related

DON’T CRY FOR ME GOOD ALASKANS

(sung to the Evita song “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”)

I might be sleazy, I might be strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your votes after all that I’ve done

You won’t believe me
All you will see is a Guv you once knew
Best known for her cries and her whines
And rimless glasses, also too

I had to leave Alaska, I needed fame
Couldn’t stay all my life in the snow
Looking out of my window, staring right at Russia

So I chose D.C.
Heading down south, with Naughty Monkey shoes
I hoped to impress with my drawl
And my sixties beehive hairdo

Don’t cry for me good Alaskans
The truth is I’m glad I left you
My Wasilla days
My pay a pittance
And Michael Wooten
So long, good riddance

And as for ethics and as for blame
I never invited them in
And it seemed Alaska thought I should be fired

I have delusions
Ya betcha I wink and I blink so constantly
And I lived off of the state dime
I had my house built for near free

Don’t cry for me good Alaskans

(Musical Interlude)

Don’t cry for me good Alaskans
The truth is I’m glad I left you
My Wasilla days
My pay a pittance
And Michael Wooten
So long, good riddance

Have I said too much?
I’m sure you know I gave Alaska a good screw
But that is all that Alaskans will ever know
Cuz no more interviews.

But that is all that Alaskans will ever know
Cuz no more interviews.

Good Alaskans

Sarah Palin Boob Tube Themes – 9

Sarah_television2

Does anybody remember the 1960’s television sitcom, Mr. Ed, which starred Mr. Ed the talking horse? The more we think about it, Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin reminds us of a talking horse’s ass. Here are some examples:

1.  “Well, let’s see. There’s ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ―” –Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008;

2.  “They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan.” –Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2008;

3.  “If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.” –Sarah Palin, getting First Amendment rights backwards while suggesting that criticism of her is unconstitutional, radio interview with WMAL-AM, Oct. 31, 2008; and of course, this gem…

4. “As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border.” –Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS’s Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008

If any of you readers have any other television theme songs that you would like to see parodied, please leave suggestions in the Comment section.

Mr. Ed TV theme link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2AlIhBFtLo

SARAH P.

(Sung to the TV theme of “Mr. Ed”)

Hello, I’m Sarah P.

An ass is an ass, alas, alas,
And we all know the eyeglassed lass.
She is the ass with the balls of brass, the clueless Sarah P.

Go to her witch mass and ask this ass
but her answer is timed with an hourglass.
You’ll feel like you’re in a morass.
Talk to Sarah P.

She will yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day.
Her incoherent ramblings reveal she has nothing to
say.

An ass is an ass, alas, alas,
And this one is queen of her own subclass.
You’ve never talked to a big jackass?

Well listen to this.

I AM SARAH P.

The Ghostly Lynn Vincent

Casper Ghost1

Sarah Palin’s official memoirs will be released next year. She will finally have the opportunity to put that marvelous University of Idaho Journalism Degree to good use also, too. Wait a minute, what’s that, she won’t actually be writing the book herself? She will utilize a ghost writer? Who might it be?

Oh, but of course. It is Lynn Vincent, the contributing author to the conservative Christian publication, World magazine. What’s that, she is also the author of Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime and Corruption in the Democratic Party? As the Church Lady from Saturday Night Live used to say, “Well, isn’t that special.”

You guessed it. Here’s the song…

Casper The Friendly Ghost theme link: http://www.televisiontunes.com/Casper_-_The_Friendly_Ghost.html

VINCENT THE FRIENDLY GHOST

(Sung to the theme of “Casper the Friendly Ghost”)

Vincent the friendly ghost
She’ll try to make Palin glow
With her pen she writes
For the Christian right
And now its Sarah’s bio

She hopes to make some dough (some dough)
And appeal to all the preachers
But this time she’ll eat crow
Spouting lies about this mindless creature

She is a parasite
And Palin is now her host
But we all know
That the book will blow
Vincent the friendly ghost

Anchor Babies Aweigh!

Michelle-MalkinatorFire

The hypocrisy of right-wing pundits never ceases to amaze. Case in point, Michelle Malkin. This conservative commentator and blogger typically spews forth the boiler-plate conservative Republican diatribe against certain children referred to as “anchor babies.” An anchor baby is generally defined by these pundits as a child born in the United States to immigrants or other non-citizens regardless of the immigration status of the parents (including, but not limited to those on student or work visas). The term is derogatory because it refers to the role of the child (a U.S. citizen by birth) as facilitating immigration by family reunification pursuant to the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1985.

On June 13, 2004, Ms. Malkin posted an article on her website enitled, “No More Drive-By Citizenshiphttp://michellemalkin.com/2004/06/13/no-more-drive-by-citizenship/ . In it she states,

Interesting development this weekend in Ireland, which overwhelmingly passed a referendum to stop granting automatic citizenship to anybody born on the island. The vote, supported by 80 percent of the electorate, brings the country in line with the rest of the EU nations, which offer citizenship based either on the nationality of parents or on a sufficient length of (legal) residence.

During my book tour across the country for Invasion, this issue came up time and again. In the Southwest, everyone has a story of heavily pregnant women crossing the Mexican border to deliver their “anchor babies.” At East Coast hospitals, tales of South Korean “obstetric tourists” abound. (An estimated 5,000 South Korean anchor babies are born in the US every year). And, of course, there’s a terrorism angle.

Now, here comes the hypocrisy. Michelle Malkin was born on October 20, 1970 in Philadelphia, PA to Filipino parents while they were in the United States on student visas. (See  http://www.nndb.com/people/761/000027680/ and http://www.booknotes.org/Transcript/?ProgramID=1705). Consequently, she is an “anchor baby.” Is it any wonder that she has little to no credibility and cannot be taken seriously, or that her blog is entitled, “Hot Air”?

It is also lots of fun to watch reich-wing pundits eating their young. Think Progress today has an article which exposes the simmering feud between Malkin and Bill O’Reilly. http://thinkprogress.org/2009/05/28/oreilly-targets-commenters/

You guessed it. Here comes the song parody…

Michelle song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBwGmOexmNo

MICHELLE

(Sung to the Beatles song “Michelle”)

Michelle, from Hell
These are words that go together well,
Weird Michelle.

Michelle, do tell,
Do you even possess one brain cell
One tiny cell?

Just shut up, just shut up, just shut up
You have nothing to say
Would you just go away
And crawl back under that rock from whence you
Ca-ame yesterday.

Michelle, Oh well,
You’ve been put under a right-wing spell
A sure death knell

On Fox News, on Fox News, on Fox News
That’s where you’ll always be
Republican TV

With Hannity and O’Reilly
And Coulter, the queen

We mock you…

We want you, we want you, we want you,
To leave the air-waves now
And lose your job somehow
Until you do we’re telling you so
You’ll understand.

Michelle, farewell
Take with you that foul sulfuric smell
Sulfuric smell.

We will say the only words we know that
You’ll understand, “Go to Hell.”

Fox On The Run

fox-newsBullshit

How anybody in “This Great Nation of Ours” (gratuitous Sarah Palin reference intended) could believe that Fox News is, in any way, an objective and dare we say, fair and balanced network is astonishing. Night after night it broadcasts only negative commentary about Democrats and only glowing commentary about ultra reich-wing conservative Republicans. Of recent interest was the network sponsored and promoted “Tea-Bagging” Parties that drew neary a scintilla of interest from the mainstream news networks. Fox however, covered the event as if it were man’s first steps on the moon (assuming that man actually landed on the moon, that is).

So let’s get to it and have a Fox News song parody…

Let ‘Em In song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe990JYsbNo&feature=related

LET FOX IN

(sung to the Paul McCartney and Wings song “Let ‘Em In”)

Someone’s sniveling on the tube
Somebody’s startin’ to yell
Someone’s sportin’ new boobs
Somebody reeks of hair gel

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Ooh yeah

Someone’s not “fair and balanced”
Somebody’s missing brain cells
Someone’s psyche is imbalanced
Somebody’s wearing pastels

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Yeah ,yeah, yeah, let Fox in

Neil Cavuto, O’Reilly
Glenn Beck and Hannity
Huckabee and Van Susteren
Change the channel and let Fox in
Yeah

(musical interlude)

Neil Cavuto, O’Reilly
Glenn Beck and Hannity
Huckabee and Van Susteren
Change the channel and let Fox in
Oh,yeah

Someone’s talking to Newt Gingrich
Somebody’s starting to shout
Someone called Hillary a bitch
Somebody’s starting to pout

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Ooh yeah ,yeah, let Fox in, let ‘em in now

Doo doo doo doo da doo doo
Doo doo doo da doo da

Neil Cavuto, O’Reilly
Glenn Beck and Hannity
Huckabee and Van Susteren
Change the channel and let Fox in
Oh,yeah

Someone’s sniveling on the tube
Somebody’s startin’ to yell
Someone’s sportin’ new boobs
Somebody reeks of hair gel

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Ooh yeah , yeah , yeah ,yeah ,yeah

Role Model or Hypocrite?

Bristol Palin

On its website today, MSNBC posts an article which explores recent celebrities and whether they are actual “role models” to younger Americans.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30874508/ In other words, are young people savvy enough to distinguish between true role models and hypocrytes?

MSNBC utilizes Bristol Palin as in example:

Recently, Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska governor and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, set out on a campaign to urge young people to practice abstinence. “If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex,” she told People Magazine. “Trust me. Nobody.” She became pregnant by former boyfriend Levi Johnston and gave birth to a son in late December.

Strangely however, the MSNBC article omits any mention of the young Palin’s previous on-air declaration on the Fox network, to wit:

I think abstinence is … I don’t know how to put it … everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all. (emphasis added)

Inasmuch as Ms. Palin is now a spokesperson for the Candies (shoe company) Foundation and its program to prevent teen pregnancy, we thought a song parody was in order…

I Want Candy song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMICD3aMZpw

SHE WEARS CANDIES

(sung to the Bow Wow Wow song “I Want Candy”)

I know a girl who’ll take some heat
Candies pays this gal to speak
She’s got a mother that is a liar
Sarah sucks like a vampire

She wears Candies
She wears Candies

Bristol is preachin’ in Gotham Town
She should shut-up and sit down
She don’t know squat about abstinence
She’s got a big case of arrogance

She wears Candies
She wears Candies
Yeah

(musical interlude)

Bristol is a gal that should know better
She should be sporting a scarlet letter
She left school cuz she was failin’
Just like almost every Palin

She wears Candies
She wears Candies
She wears Candies
She wears Candies

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

Tales From Cheney’s Darkside

Cheney Gun

Everybody remembers when Dick Cheney justified the torture of prisoners by claiming that sometimes it is necessary to venture over to the dark side. Well, this is the first in an ongoing series of articles about Dick Cheney’s “Dark Side”.

It seems like only yesterday, when on February 11, 2006, then Vice President Dick Cheney shot his 78 year old longtime friend and attorney, Harry Whittington in the face while hunting. We all remember that it seemed as if a full blown cover-up was in effect when we learned that the incident was not reported to the local authorities for hours and that even the dimwit George W. Bush was not notified immediately by Cheney’s cronies. The story got even better when the public began to hear stories that Cheney was drinking shortly before the hunt. Best of all, however, was when the victim, Whittingham, ended up apologizing to Cheney for ruining his (i.e. Cheney’s) day or something to that effect.

Boy, we really do miss those good old days.

If any readers would like to suggest another episode from Cheney’s “Dark Side”, please post same on the comment board. Please, oh pretty please?

Janie’s Got A Gun song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv1N6TVCnLs
