Sarah Palin Contributes to G.O.P. Implosion

palin-winner-quits

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.

SARAH IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS

(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

Belcourt Castle, Newport, Rhode Island

Belcourt Castle, Newport, Rhode Island

Apologies to all for the lack of newsworthy posts this weekend. The Lynnrockets were busy attending a lavish Halloween party at the Belcourt Castle in Newport, Rhode Island. New Englanders take their Halloween rituals very seriously in light of the Salem Witch Trials and the large Irish population (Halloween is actually an Irish Pagan ritual). The castle itself is the third largest mansion in Newport and is a private residence with only one occupant remaining and is presently for sale. Perhaps this is the Rhode Island property that Sarah Palin was rumored to be interested in. The photos above are from this weekend’s party.

Now for the music byte…

The first incarnation of The Moody Blues formed on 4 May 1964, in Erdington, Birmingham, England. Ray Thomas, John Lodge, and Michael Pinder had been members of El Riot & the Rebels, a regionally-popular band. They disbanded when Lodge, the youngest member, went to technical college and Pinder joined the army. Pinder then rejoined Thomas to form the Krew Cats and enjoyed moderate success. The pair recruited guitarist/vocalist Denny Laine, band manager-turned drummer Graeme Edge, and bassist Clint Warwick. The five appeared as the Moody Blues for the first time in Birmingham in 1964. The name developed from a planned sponsorship from the M&B Brewery and was also a subtle reference to the Duke Ellington song, “Mood Indigo”.

Soon, the band obtained a London-based management company, ‘Ridgepride’, formed by ex-Decca A&R man Alex Murray (Alex Wharton), who helped them land a recording contract with Decca Records in the spring of 1964. They released a single, “Steal Your Heart Away” that year which made it onto the charts. But it was their second single, “Go Now” (released later that year), which really launched their career, being promoted on TV with one of the first purpose-made promotional films in the pop era, produced and directed by Wharton. The single became a hit in the United Kingdom (where it remains their only Number 1 single to date) and in the United States where it reached #10.

Denny Laine left The Moody Blues in 1966, well prior to hitting stardom. He then formed and toiled with a number of obscure bands through 1970. In 1971, Denny joined Paul McCartney to found the group known as Wings, and would stay with them for a full ten years until they officially disbanded in 1981; Denny provided lead & rhythm guitars, backing vocals, keyboards, bass, writing and co-writing skills, as well as being a solid solo performer. Together with Paul and his wife, Linda, they formed the nucleus of the band, being called that “strange, 3-winged beast”. It was with Wings that Denny enjoyed the biggest commercial and critical successes of his career, including co-writing the smash hit “Mull of Kintyre”.

Here are the early Moody Blues featuring Denny Laine as lead singer performing, Go Now.

Palins: A Family In Decline

political-pictures-sarah-palin-family-media-hell

The Palin family circus is a sight to behold. Is a single one of them presently employed? Perhaps Track is still employed by the U.S. Government if his term of military service has not yet been completed. Even that however, says something about the uber-right-wing family that promotes the private sector so much when the only family income comes from the federal government. In typical Palin fashion, husband Todd recently quit his job with British Petroleum. Sarah, the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska has recently posted her resume on LinkedIn. Bristol, we assume, is a single stay at home mom living off of who knows what. Jeesh!!!

Arlen is SPECT(er)ACULAR !!!

Arlen Specter sports a new hat.

Arlen Specter sports a new hat.

Regarding Democratic Senator Arlen Specter, perhaps those old Benson & Hedges cigarette ads said it best, “You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby.” It was not too long ago that Specter was a thorn in the side of the Democratic party. He steadfastly held the Republican line on most financial issues and he even vociferously defended the selection of Clarence Thomas as a Supreme Court Justice in the face of the Anita Hill sexual misconduct allegations. In short, Arlen Specter was a powerful senior voice in the opposing camp.

Then last year things began to change in Specter’s ideology. He began to side with Democrats more frequently on both fiscal and social matters. His popularity within the Republican party began to wane and then he surprised the political world by switching parties and helping to achieve the daunted sixty seat filibuster-proof Democratic Senate majority. Even so, some Democrats doubted that he would be a reliable vote on certain issues. After all, he had been a fiscal conservative for so many years. Would he vote with the Democrats on the more progressive issues that catapulted the party to majorities in both houses of congress and the presidency?

This week Specter answered that question resoundingly in the affirmative. UPI.com reports that Specter now fully supports the creation of a robust public option in the health care reform legislation that is presently being debated in both houses. Specter said on Fox News Sunday that Republicans are a “party of obstructionism” on healthcare reform, and, “On the Republican side, it is, ‘no, no, no,’ a party of obstructionism.” He went on to say,  a proposed public option to provide a government-run alternative to private health plans is “gaining momentum” despite opposition from Republicans, and “We had a very forceful speech by President Obama yesterday on his Saturday talk show emphasizing the importance of the robust public option to hold down the profits and bonuses, and I’m not going to step back a bit” .

It is now fair to say that at least with regard to health care reform, Specter is now one of the good guys.

Thursday Night Music Byte

The Pretty Things are an English rock and roll band from London. They pioneered a raw approach to rhythm and blues that influenced a number of key bands of the 1960s British invasion, including The Rolling Stones. David Bowie covered two of their songs on his album Pin Ups.

The Pretty Things were preceded by Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys, which consisted of Dick Taylor, fellow Sidcup Art College student Keith Richards, and Mick Jagger. When Brian Jones joined the band on guitar, Taylor was pushed from guitar to bass and the band changed its name to the Rollin’ Stones.Taylor (born Richard Clifford Taylor, 28 January 1943, in Dartford, Kent) quit the Stones several months later when he was accepted at the London Central School of Art, where he met Phil May (born Phillip Arthur Dennis Wadey, on 9 November 1944, in Dartford, Kent) and they formed The Pretty Things.Taylor was once again playing guitar, with May singing and playing harmonica. They recruited Brian Pendleton (born 13 April 1944 in Wolverhampton – died 16 May 2001 in Maidstone, Kent) on rhythm guitar; John Stax (born John Edward Lee Fullegar, 6 April 1944 in Crayford, Kent) on bass; and Pete Kitley, replaced by Viv Broughton (on drums) and then by Viv Prince (born Vivian St John Prince, 9 August 1941, in Loughborough, Leicestershire) on drums. Viv Prince made his first set of drums himself while a student at Loughborough Grammar School.

The Pretty Things caused a sensation in England, and their first three singles — “Rosalyn” #41, “Don’t Bring Me Down” #10, and the self-penned “Honey I Need” at #13 — appeared in the UK singles chart in 1964-1965. They never had a hit in the United States, but had considerable success in their native United Kingdom and in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, and the Netherlands in the middle of the decade. However, in the U.S. they, along with The Yardbirds and Van Morrison’s Them, were a huge influence on hundreds of garage bands, including the MC5 and The Seeds.

Their early material consisted of hard-edged blues-rock influenced by Bo Diddley (they took their name from Diddley’s 1955 song “Pretty Thing”) and Jimmy Reed. They were known for wild stage behaviour and edgy lyrical content; their song “Midnight to Six Man” defined the mod lifestyle. Around this time, the first of what would be many personnel changes over the years also began, with Prince the first to go late in 1965. He was replaced by Skip Alan (born 11 June 1948 in London). Brian Pendleton left late in 1966, and was not initially replaced. Stax quit early in 1967. Jon Povey and Wally Waller (both former Fenmen from Bern Elliott and the Fenmen) joined to make the band a five piece once again.

After a flirtation with mainstream pop on the Emotions album in 1967, they embraced psychedelia, producing the concept album S.F. Sorrow during 1967-68. This album, released in late 1968, is one of the first rock operas, preceding the release of The Who’s Tommy in April 1969 by a few months. It was recorded over several months during 1967 at EMI’s famous Abbey Road Studios in London, during the same period when The Beatles and Pink Floyd were recording Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn respectively. These albums share a similar late-1960s psychedelic sound, and the Floyd and Pretty Things albums were both produced by the late Norman Smith, who had engineered most of the Beatles’ recordings until 1966.

Original rhythm guitarist Brian Pendleton died of lung cancer on 16 May 2001. The following year ex-keyboard player Gordon Edwards died of a drug overdose.

Here is a video of The Pretty Things performing their 1966 song, LSD. Please enjoy.

Glenn Beck Is Nucking Futs !!!

beck-Dementia

Please do yourself a favor and tune into the Glenn Beck show if you enjoy watching a person quickly sink into the bottomless abyss of insanity. This nutjob is making Sarah Palin sound like the proverbial voice of reason. His crazed and distorted rant on October 19, 2009 may rank as his most confused anti-Obama diatribe yet. Let’s dissect and analyze Beck’s incoherent argument against volunteering for the public good.

We have all heard the most recent public service announcement by President Obama which has been broadcast repeatedly on both television and radio. You know, the one where he asks Americans to volunteer their services in the hope of helping fellow Americans in need. The President has also applauded the Corporation For National And Community Service’s recent ability to convince most of the television networks to include in their shows, plot lines which encourage volunteerism in the local community. To the average person this sounds like a commendable non-political plea to help our neighbors and communities. But it does not sound that way to Glenn Beck. Surprised?

On his Fox Network television show last Monday, Beck explained to the world why volunteerism and community service are un-American and worthy of disdain. Beck said this:

When you’re watching TV this week, you might notice a common theme on some of your favorite TV shows: service and volunteerism. Not just public service announcements, but service and volunteerism will be worked into the plots…Your favorite character might volunteer at the dog shelter or at the park. I just have one pesky question. Are we running out of volunteers in this country?… Are we trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist? Are we creating a problem that doesn’t exist? To have an emergency that doesn’t yet exist? Or is it just a coincidence that all of this falls into line with President Obama’s Corporation for National and Community Service. President Obama has called for a new era of responsibility… recognition on the part of every American that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and world to serve others. It is the price and promise of citizenship. In response, our television community with the Entertainment Industry Foundation will launch a multi-year campaign to inspire action and promote a new way of thinking about service. Well this is fantastic, we’re living in Mao’s China right now.

Yeah, OK Glenn. So, in your world, promoting the benefits of volunteerism and community service is akin to living in Mao’s China. How so? Please do tell. Oh, what’s that, you were silent on your program as to just how this analogy makes any sense? Not surprising in that nothing that this moron says makes any sense. If Glenn Beck ever decides to write a memoir, he best have Sarah Palin do the ghostwriting. Her word salad is a lot more appetizing than his smorgasbord of reason.

HE’S CRAZY

(sung to the Patsy Cline song “Crazy”)

Crazy
Glenn Beck is a demented phony
He’s crazy
Marbles? He’s missing a few

We knew
He was one of Bellevue’s “Most Wanted”
And that someday
He’d make an asylum debut

Sorry
Beck’s on a mental safari
Wondrin’
How did he go so koo-koo

Oh, crazy
Glenn’s crazy and back on the home brew
There’s no use denyin’
Beck can’t stop cryin’
Glenn Beck’s crazy
And stupid too

Crazy
We’re not sure that Beck’s not sniffing glue
It seems like he’s flyin’
We’re not just implyin’
Glenn Beck’s crazy
We know it’s true

Sarah Palin: The Book Tour Bore

Oprah and Palin to team-up for some comedy.

Oprah and Palin to team-up for some comedy.

Sarah Palin, the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska is the epitome of “the gift that keeps on giving.” Just this week we learned that not only is she job hunting by means of posting her resume on LinkedIn, the Facebook for grown-ups, but now it has been revealed that she will appear for an interview with Oprah on the eve of the release of her ghostwritten pop-up memoir. Wow, where to begin?

Palin is either in such dire financial straits that she will do anything to get a new job and stir up some book sales, or she is a dim-witted glutton for punishment. Then again, those choices are not mutually exclusive. Inasmuch as yesterday’s post dealt with her new means of job search, today we will focus on the Oprah appearance.

First of all, does Palin think that Oprah Winfrey’s audience has any use for her feminist-belittling brand of politics? Her stance against equal pay for equal work in the workplace and her penchant for charging rape victims for rape kits is not likely to sit well with those women who adore the female empowering posture of Oprah. Then there is Oprah Winfrey herself. It was Winfrey’s fierce opposition to the McCain/Palin ticket that triggered her first ever public endorsement for the Presidency, and it was not for the duo of Old and Dumb. We can only hope that prior to the interview Oprah gets an English translation of Palin’s book so that she can do some fact checking in advance. When one considers how hilariously poor Palin performed in her interviews with Gibson and Couric last Fall, we can only hope that the Oprah interview produces more of the same. How familiar can Palin be with the content of a book about herself that she did not author. It will not be Frost/Nixon, but this could be one interview for the ages if Winfrey plays it tough. Keep your fingers crossed.

In the meantime, let’s have some fun with a song parody directed at the Oprah/Palin interview.

Copacabana song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMHp9a5FwrI

OPRAH’S-CABANA

(sung to the Barry Manilow song “Copacabana”)

Her name was Sarah,
In search of dough girl
She had a beehive in her hair and stinging rhetoric to spare
She hated questions which she coined “Gotcha”
But she wanted to be a star,
On TeeVee while with Oprah
She feared becoming poor
So she had a book tour
She’d do this show and then another
And so many more

She’s on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
She would be a star just like Vanna
While on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
She lacked compassion but had stewardess fashion
And with Oprah…she’d find some love
(Oprah Oprah’s-Cabana)

Her name was Oprah,
She shined like diamonds
While in that interviewer’s chair, she would give Palin a scare
And when she skewered that Holy Roller
It would be Palin’s au revoir
That interview will leave a scar
Then Sarah you know who,
Will blame Oprah’s stage crew
Her winking eyes will be all bloodshot
She will cry, “Boo-Hoo”

While on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
She looked like a chimp with banana
While on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
She had a passion for air hostess fashion
But with Oprah…she got no love
(Oprah Oprah’s-Cabana)

(Oprah  Oprah-Cabana) (Oprah-Cabana, ahh ahh ahh ahh)
(Ahh ahh ahh ahh Oprah Oprah-Cabana)
(Sarah P.,  rhymes with Hannity)
(Dumbness and fashion… were always her passion)

Her name is Palin,
She was a Guv’nor
But that was several months ago before she “went with the flow”
Now she’s a bimbo and she is failin’
A lip-sticked pig beyond compare
And with enemies to spare
She was a star that shined
But only with her kind
She was uncouth and she was a phony
Before she resigned

While on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
A fading starlet just like Vanna
While on Oprah, Oprah’s-Cabana
She took a thrashin’ while her teeth were gnashin’
And with Oprah…she got no love

(Oprah) That’s our failed Guv
Oprah’s-Cabana
Oprah’s-Cabana
(Fade to end)

Sarah Palin: “Will Work For Food”

palin-quits-again

The fame and fortune that she expected after quitting her job as Governor of Alaska have thus far eluded Sarah Palin. The prolific speaking engagements have been few and far between primarily because only the one in Hong Kong was a paying gig. All of the others were non-paying engagements most of which, not unexpectedly, Palin did not attend. Todd “The First Dude” Palin also recently quit his job with oil producer British Petroleum. Quitting seems to be a Palin family trait. Additionally, the release date of Sarah Palin’s ghostwritten memoir has been moved up from Spring 2010 to November 2009. Could it be that she needs the money now and wants to cash in on Christmas gift sales?

Sarah Palin’s most recent cry for pay has come in the form of a newly created LinkedIn posting. CNN reports that Palin has placed her resume on the “Facebook for professionals”, a social media site that displays people’s resumes and allows for business networking for members to find a job. Along with her posted resume that includes the jobs that she has quit, Palin also states on the site that she is interested in…

“Job inquiries, expertise requests, business deals, reference requests, and getting back in touch.”

Apparently Palin did not receive the job nibbles she expected from her postings on Monster.com, Facebook and Twitter, so now she is shopping her resume on this more upscale site. It is interesting to contemplate just exactly what type of “expertise requests” she is qualified to fulfill and what “business deals” she is interested in. Most fascinating of all however, is Palin’s interest in “getting back in touch.” That is particularly humorous coming from the woman who told Katie Couric during a nationally televised interview, “I’ll try to find ya some and I’ll bring them to ya” when she was asked to provide specific examples of John McCain seeking tighter regulations on the financial industry. As we all know, Palin never did “get back in touch” with Couric on that matter. Let’s watch her stammering response just for laughs.

What is the next tactic to be used by Sarah Palin in her search for employment, sandwich boards?

DRUMMING UP SOME BUSINESS

(sung to the Bachman, Turner Overdrive song, “Taking Care of Business”)

She gets up every morning
To hell with global warming
As she hums the new Lynnrockets’ dittie
She’s a nervous wreck because
Ol’ Michael Wooten’s still a fuzz
She’s a joke in Wasilla City

And if her brain’s online
She might feature in prime time
The exposure just might get her some pay
Sarah Palin is annoyed
That she is now unemployed
Public speaking was not her pay day

So she’ll be…
Drumming up some business, every day
Drumming up some business, every way
Sarah’s been drumming up some business, for a dime
Drumming up some business, and hoping for face time
Look out

If it were as easy as fishin’
She could be a beautician
And color your hair brown or yellow
She could work down at the bar
No need to wear a bra
She’d be loved by all those drunk red-neck fellows
The election was not won
Sarah Palin has no fun
Never should have happened that way
Republicans now avoid
This gal that’s unemployed
They keep pushing her further away

So she’ll be…
Drumming up some business, every day
Drumming up some business, every way
Sarah’s been drumming up some business, for a dime
Drumming up some business, and hoping for face time
Look out

(musical interlude)

Taking care of her business
She needs pay
Any ol’ way

She wakes up every morning
Her prospects are not warming
She won’t get too far on being pretty
Maybe the Lord up above
Will give Sarah Palin a shove
Right now she is someone to pity

And if she trains her mind
Joe The Plumber might be kind
And give her a position someday
Palin would be overjoyed
If she was not unemployed
She’d be snaking toilets everyday

So she’ll be…
Drumming up some business, every day
Drumming up some business, every way
Sarah’s been drumming up some business, for a dime
Drumming up some business, and hoping for face time

Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business, every day
Drumming up some business, every way
Sarah’s been drumming up some business, for a dime
Drumming up some business, and hoping for face time, Wooh

Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Sarah’s drumming up some business
She’ll be drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
Drumming up some business
