Sarah Palin Contributes to G.O.P. Implosion


With only 20% of the national electorate registered as Republicans, can the party withstand a further splintering of its membership? Sarah Palin, the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska apparently believes that it can or that a new more conservative third party can emerge to take its place. Case in point, the congressional race in New York’s 23rd District.

This upstate New York district has been solidly Republican since 1871, but times they are a changin’. The Republican nominee, Dede Scozzafava will face opposition not only from Democratic Party nominee Bill Owens, but also from Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman. Many conservative Republicans believe that Scozzafava is too moderate and consequently they may support the uber-right-wing Owens. Sarah Palin has joined the conservative crew and publicly endorsed the third party Owens. With regard to her decision, Palin posted on her Facebook page last Thursday as follows: “The Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines,” Palin wrote, “and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race.” Palin joins other prominent national Republicans such as Fred Thompson (he, of tv acting fame) and Dick Armey (he, of Tea-Bagging fame) in endorsing the non-Republican.

The end result of this Republican-Conservative in-fighting however, may be that the Democratic Party candidate Bill Owens benefits from the division of Republican votes. If so, for the first time in 139 years, a Democrat may represent New York’s Fightin’ 23rd. Let’s hope that such is the case.

In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the parody.

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds song link:


(sung to the Beatles song “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”)

Picture yourself in a town called Wasilla
With convenience stores and endless strip malls
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A gal who’s fans cheer with cat-calls

Oil covered snowmen and Todd’s snow-machine
My God is that Uncle Jed?
Sarah’s the girl with Monkeys on her feet
Now, she’s gone

Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Ah… Ah…

Follow her down to a Bridge Off To Nowhere,
Where Sarah says, “No”, but then she still buys.
Everyone smile as she kisses Joe Sixpack,
She attracts the wackiest guys.

Newspaper headlines describe what she wore
Ebay jets take her away
SarahPAC funds all the money she’s spent
Now, she’s gone.

Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Ah… Ah…

Picture yourself sitting home on your cell-phone
Pondering all her insufferable lies
Suddenly someone “tweets” you from Ol’ Twitter
It’s Sarah and man is she fried.

Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds

Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds
Sarah in the sky with diamonds

  1. Excellent work on this song. Hope that “Now she’s gone” line comes true soon, complete with handcuffs for any one of the Palingates. Meanwhile, hope the Democrat wins.

  2. Forget me not

    Palin’s career as a wealthy celebrity diva depends on a certain coyness about running for president, but old-school “Wall Street” Republicans (and most everybody else) have shown very little interest.

    How to remain in the spotlight? Why not use the Sarahpac money to appeal to her base, and remind the GOP that she’s not completely irrelevant? The extra attention might even boost book sales.

  3. Mrs. Tarquin Biscuitbarrel

    Another goodie, Lynn! Mr. B always thought the “girl with kaleidoscope eyes” was “the girl with colitis walks by.”

    But yours is better. And so’s Big Pete’s offering.
