Palin Jumps The Shark (or Happy Daze)

PalinAirhead

For those of you that are not familiar with the term, “jump the shark” it is generally defined as the point in time when a once popular person or thing begins to lose popularity and, in an attempt to regain its former status, veers off course and into the absurd never to recover again. The term originated during a 1977 episode of the once famously popular television sitcom, Happy Days. In that episode, the oh, so cool Fonzie, while waterskiing (clad in leather motorcycle jacket and swim trunks) in California, performed a daredevil jump over a confined shark. Critics now refer to that moment as the single point in time when Happy Days hit rock bottom and never recovered. In other words, that was the moment in time when the show “jumped the shark.” Get it?

OK then. Now we would like to have a little poll. We would like all readers to identify the point in time when they believe Sarah Palin jumped the shark. For example, was it when she was nominated as VP, or maybe when she began to idolize Joe Sixpack or Joe the Plumber, or perhaps when she told her pitbull joke? Please submit your contributions on the comment section of this post. Now let’s have some fun.

To capture the spirit of this thing, here is a video link to the actual Happy Days jumping the shark moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDthMGtZKa4

We also have a song parody of the Happy Days theme.

Palin Days

(sung to the TV theme of “Happy Days”)

Sunday, Monday, Palin days.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Palin days.
Thursday, Friday, Palin days.
The weekend’s here, that “Bridge to Nowhere”,
“Thanks But Not Thanks” to you.

She prays for hours. To be V.P.
She prays for hours. With the A.I.P.

Hello, “Joe Sixpack” I love you, “Joe the Plumber” is my type too.
I did it with Todd, I did it with John. I feel like a “pig with lipstick” on!

Sunday, Monday, Palin days.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Palin days.
Thursday, Friday, Palin days.
Saturday, Oh, Tina Fey,
I’ve been dreamin’ all week of you.


She prays for hours. “Caribou Barbie”.
She prays for hours. Who’ll tea-bag me?.

These Palin days, will she resign?
These Palin days, she’s a punch-line, Palin days.

Breaking News (or, This Just In) – 2

MalkinUnhingedl

Gotta love the news ticker at the bottom.

Breaking News:  While commenting on the David Letterman apology, Sarah Palin says that she is glad men can “evolve.” As a christian fundamentalist, is she allowed to believe in evolution?

This Just In:  Right wing pundit Ann Coulter says that his favorite food is Adam’s Apple Pie.

Breaking News:  Four innocent Chinese nationals are released from Guantanamo Bay and relocated to Bermuda. Right wing pundits go nuts. Why?

This Just In:  Fox News pundit Glenn Beck solves water shortage problem in south-west United States. He cried them a river on his show last night.

Breaking News:  Former Idaho Senator, Larry “Wide Stance” Craig enrolls in adult recreational football league. He said that he is willing to be either a wide receiver or a tight end.

This Just In:  So as not to offend anyone, David Letterman explains that Bristol Palin is so ugly because Janet Reno is her father. He gave credit for the joke to Arizona Senator, John McCain.

And here is today’s song parody…

Remember to click on the song link below because it makes singing along a lot more fun.

YELLOW SARAH P.

(Sung to the Beatles song “Yellow Submarine”)

In the state where she was born,
The A.I.P. wants to secede,
Todd, “the First Dude’s” bossy wife,
Yes, her name is Sarah P.

Once the mayor of Wasilla,
And a one-time beauty queen,
Now she shills for “Arctic Cat”
Cheering for Todd’s snow-machine.

Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.
Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.

And her friends just love their boss,
Meg Stapleton and old Wayne Ross,
Now their band begins to play…

(Trumpets play)
DaDaDaDumpDeDumpDeDump
DaDaDaDumpDeDumpDeDump

Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.
Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.

(Full speed ahead, Ms. Palin, full speed!
Russia’s over here, Mam!
Putin! Putin!
Aye, aye, Mam, fire!
Guv’nor! Guv’nor!)

Now she lives a life of ease,
But can’t recite her A-B-C’s, (her A-B-C’s)
“Hockey Mom” (hockey mom), with “lipstick on”, (lipstick on)
Savior of (savior of) the G.O.P. (G.O.P.) (Hahaha!)

Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.
Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.

(fading)

Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.
Alaska must get rid of Sarah P.,
Rid of Sarah P., Rid of Sarah P.
