Hang Down Your Head, Ms. Palin

palin-pouting-crying

It appears that the bloom has truly come off the rose that once was Sarah Palin. Only one week after she realized that her one-half term as Alaska’s Governor was a failure and she gave-up and quit, she must now realize that the rest of the nation has lost faith in her, also too. A CBS News poll released Monday reveals that only 33% of Republicans believe that Caribou Barbie has the ability to serve effectively as President. Let me repeat, only 33% of Republicans believe that she has the ability to serve effectively as President. http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/07/13/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry5156705.shtml Inasmuch as Republicans presently comprise less than 22% of registered voters, Palin’s favorability rating amongst all voters is consequently much less than 33%. It may even be lower than G.W. Bush’s favorability rating upon leaving office. As they say in the Limbo dance song, “how low can you go?”

Despite this drastically low level of national popular support, however, donations to Palin’s political action committee known as SarahPac have increased since she quit elected office. Since that time, her supporters have donated nearly $ 200,000.00. Are these supporters as punchdrunk as she is? Are they blind to the fact that her political experience has now been capped at serving as the mayor of a tiny city, losing a bid to be Vice President and quitting after serving only one-half of one term as Governor of a state with a population of only 680,000. To put this in perspective, the population of metropolitan Boston is 4.5 million. As they say, “a fool and his money are soon parted.”

MS. PALIN

(sung to the Kingston Trio song “Tom Dooley”)

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

Alarm bells should be soundin’
For the First Dude’s wife
There’ll be no vote countin’
Short was her shelf life

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

This time tomorrow
Wonder where she’ll be?
Poll numbers are a fallin’
There’ll be no Presidency

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

Words ringin’ hollow
A useless degree
Member of the G.O.P.
That’s Little Miss Mavericky

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Ms. Palin
Kiss your career bye-bye

Kiss your career bye-bye
Kiss your career bye-bye
Kiss your career bye-bye
