Sarah Palin – A Retrospective

Sarah Palin announced her exit from Alaska politics only two short weeks ago and already we are waxing nostalgic for her days as leader of the Land of the Midnight Sun. We understand that she plans to audition upon the larger stage of national politics, yet nonetheless we will miss the days of book burnings, witch masses, secessionist political parties, nepotism, bridges to nowhere, Troopergate, baby birthin’s and First Dudes. We can only hope that in the near future she musters the courage to appear on serious television programs such as Meet The Press and Face The Nation. Only then will we once again have the opportunity to piss our pants laughing like in the good old days of Gibson and Couric. And Tina Fey, please remember, “a lonely nation turns her eyes to you.”

Today’s song parody takes a wistful look back to Sarah Palin’s Wasilla days. Please enjoy.

WASILLA HIGHWAY

(sung to the Gordon Lightfoot song “Carefree Highway”)

Pickin’ up the pieces of my sweet Alaskan dream
I wonder how “Joe Sixpack” is tonight
Her name was Sarah, she wore rimless glasses on her face
She was Guv and she was quite uptight
Wasilla Highway, let her slip away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The Sarah Palin blues from her beehive to her shoes

Wasilla Highway, please take her away
Her away on you.

Turnin’ back the pages to the good Ol’ Palinfest
I wonder if she’ll ever be the same
During interviews she only stumbled and then lied
Now all she has is Levi left to blame
Wasilla Highway, poor old Sarah was so lame
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The Sarah Palin blues induced by mainstream nightly news
Wasilla Highway, just take her away

Her away on you

Searchin’ through the fragments of a career that once was
I wonder if “Joe the Plumber” is still kind
Was it Ross, Levi, Wooten or Diana Palin’s bust
Or some other secret she wants left behind
Wasilla Highway, did she sneak away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The mornin’ after blues will she turn to cheap-ass booze?
Wasilla Highway, did she sneak away

Sneak away on you

Did she sneak away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s got no-one left to blame
Wasilla Highway, left without delay
No more nightly news for the Gov with fancy shoes
Wasilla Highway, let her sneak away
Sneak away on you
