If the Republican Party truly desires to return to relevence in American politics, it will first need to distance itself from many of the moon-bat sub groups which comprise its base. The most recent example of one of these conservative reich wing fringe groups is “The Birthers.” You know these crackpots. These are the folks that claim that Barack Obama is not the President of the United States because he was born in Kenya. Of course, they choose to ignore the fact that the State of Hawaii has certified his birth; the fact that his birth announcement appeared in two local Hawaii newspapers in 1961; the fact that that the Republican Governor has stated that he was born there and the fact that the most recent Republican nominee for President, John McCain has stated that he was born in Hawaii (which is interesting itself in light of the fact that McCain was born in Panama).
Facts simply do not matter to”The Birthers.” They would rather ignore facts and simply continue spreading baseless inaccuracies in an attempt to thwart the Obama Presidency. Here is a good example of Birthers in action. Hilarious. Turns out the crazy red shirted woman (why do these nuts always wear red shirts?) is known by local radio station callers as “Crazy Eileen” and has been banned from calling shows on WGMD.
Thankfully, the whole “Birther” brouhaha was finally put to rest yesterday. The House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill declaring Hawaii the birth place of President Obama.
Now on deck for the Crazy Republican Right Wing Base…?????
As you know, we here at Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off have a fondness for music. The “Birther” controversy piqued my interest in finding not only the #1 song played on the day of my birth, but also the #1 songs on each of my successive birthdays thereafter. After a bit of research, it was learned that this information can be found here. Try it. It is fun. The following is a list of the #1 songs on my first ten birthdays:
Go Away Little Girl – Steve Lawrence
There! I’ve Said it Again – Bobby Vinton
Come See About Me – The Supremes
We Can work it Out – The Beatles
I’m A Believer – The Monkees
Hello Goodbye – The Beatles
I Heard It Through The Grapevine – Marvin Gaye
Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head – B.J. Thomas
My Sweet Lord/Isn’t It A Pity – George Harrison
American Pie – Don McClean
You’re So Vain – Carley Simon
Staying on topic, today’s song parody will be derived from the first song on the list and will address our favorite right wing nut job. You guessed it, Sarah Palin.

GO AWAY SARAH GIRL
(sung to the Steve Lawrence song “Go Away Little Girl”)
Go away, Sarah girl
Go away, Sarah girl
We’ve had enough of you and the First Dude
You quit because of the heat
On Twitter now you can tweet
We’ve moved on to someone else
We’re all done with you
Oh, go away, Palin girl
Go away, Palin girl
Don’t think for even one minute that you can stay
Please fulfill our biggest wish
“Go with the flow like dead fish”
So, go away, Palin girl, and leave as soon as today
Make our day
That smile now is a pout
There’ll be no more hissy fits
Let’s have one last goodbye kiss
So, go away, Sarah girl
Call it a day, Sarah girl
Oh, please, go away, Sarah girl
And make it a happy day
