Here’s The Story Of A Gal Named Palin

Palin Bunch TV

Another day, another Sarah Palin blunder. The Federal Elections Commission has charged the ex-governor’s political action committee, known as SarahPAC, with violating federal election laws. The violations stem from two illegal political campaign contributions (to John McCain and Lisa Murkowski) and numerous errors in the pac’s mid-year federal filing. Sarah Palin and her team truly are reminiscent of “The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.”

In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to not only familiarize yourselves with the tune, but to have more fun singing along to the song parody also, too.

THE PALIN BUNCH

(sung to the theme of “The Brady Bunch”)

Here’s the story of a gal named Sarah
Who was the Governor of State number 49.
Then John McCain came lookin’ for a V.P.
And that sounded just fine.

Here’s the story of Todd the First Dude
He had a D.U.I. and drove a snow machine.
He couldn’t count to ten on his fingers
With just his G.E.D.

The election didn’t go the way they planned it
Our girl Sarah couldn’t handle interviews.
The media exposed her dearth of knowledge
Except for Fox News and that blonde chick from The View.

The Palin Bunch, the Palin Bunch
That’s the way they became the Palin Bunch.

Glenn Beck Hits The Deck

beck-logos

The Glenn Beck advertiser boycott continues to build in momentum as advertisers flee his nightly program which airs on the Fox News Network. It has been all down hill for Beck since he said on air that President Barack Obama “is a racist” and has “a deep seeded hatred of white people.” The negative public outcry was tremendous and a number of organizations, most notably, Colorofchange.org, have initiated a consumer boycott of those companies that advertise on his program.

Since last week, an additional thirteen companies have pulled advertising from Glenn Beck. The most notable of these recent defections have been Clorox, Sprint and UPS Stores. This brings the approximate total of defectors to thirty-three (Oops, what’s that? Three more have pulled ads since yesterday? OK, then make that a total of thirty-six defectors). The fleeing advertisers have obviously caught the attention of Fox News executives as rumor has it that the station imposed an unplanned and unexpected forced vacation upon Beck last week in an attempt to provide a “cooling down” period for sponsors. Beck returned to his show on Monday, August 24th. He did not however, offer the obligatory mea culpa , a la radio host Don Imus.

Glenn Beck defenders have decried the boycott on the grounds that such loss of advertising revenue may force Fox News to neuter, if not silence, the television host in violation of his 1st Amendment right to free speech. Like Sarah Palin however, these scholars fail to understand the protections granted by the 1st Amendment. The 1st Amendment prohibits the “government” from restricting free speech (with certain exceptions), but it does not prohibit a “private entity” such as a television network from restricting the speech of its employees if it determines said speech to be counter-productive to its business interests. Then again, we must realize that study after study has determined that the Fox News audience is far less educated than the audiences of most every other network. So, what can you expect from them?

Today’s song parody addresses the Glenn Beck advertiser boycott. Please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune of the original song and to have more fun singing along.

GET BECK

(sung to The Beatles song “Get Back”)

Glenn Beck is a man who’s soon to be a loner
Advertisers fleeing, fast

Soon he’ll be out on his ass

Racism will get him canned
All his advertisers say he’s got it comin’
So, he’ll go back to the Klan

Get Beck!, Get Beck!
