Sarah Palin and Republican Party Divorce Is Final (Updated)


The first important election day since President Obama won the White House is here today. This is also the day that might mark the official demise of Republicans as a viable political party. Regardless of whether New York’s 23rd District Congressional special election is won by the Democratic Party candidate or the third party Conservative Party candidate one thing is certain, the Republican Party will lose another seat in Congress. Despite the fact that the seat has been held by Republicans since the 1870’s and that the seat was most recently vacated by a popular Republican Congressman, the party now has no horse in this race. Republicans can thank Sarah Palin, Dick Armey and Glenn Beck for that.

In the eyes of Palin, Armey and Beck, the Republican party must be purged of all moderates so that only the wacky conservative wing will dictate policy. You are familiar with the wacky conservative wing aren’t you? You know, the Tea-Baggers, the Minutemen Militia, the Ku Klux Klan, Michele “Bat-Shit Crazy” Bachmann and the three aforementioned loonies. The problem is however, that only approximately 20% of the national electorate are registered as Republicans inclusive of the combined numbers of moderates and conservatives. The Palin clan’s plan of forcing Republican candidates to drop out of races by means of endorsing more conservative candidates from a bevy of third parties only ensures that membership in the Republican Party will continue to decrease. Only Palin and company could see any logic in this type of addition by subtraction. Then again, virtually all polling shows that conservatives do not fare well in education comparisons with liberals, so we cannot really blame them for not comprehending this funny math.

Hence, the future of the Republican Party appears to be doomed. Worse yet however, is that this new breed of ultra-conservative third party candidates appears to be as crazy and misguided as their supporters. The most vivid recent example of this is the aforementioned Conservative Party candidate in New York,  Doug Hoffman who recently said, “I pledge my sacred honor” to uphold Glenn Beck’s political principles. He also appeared on Beck’s radio show this week and referred to Beck as “his mentor.” If 23rd District voters send this guy to Washington they might then consider checking into the nervous hospital for a little electro-shock therapy. Let’s hope they see the light and elect Democrat, Bill Owens.

UPDATE: Palin and company have successfully wounded the Republican Party. Democrat, Bill Owens wins New York’s 23rd Congressional District. Republicans lose control of the seat that they held since the 1870’s. Good work, Sarah. Everything she touches turns foul.

(sung to the Mamas & The Papas song “California Dreamin’”)

All their shirts are brown
(All their shirts are brown)
And their hair is grey
(And their hair is grey)
Listen to them talk
(Listen to them talk)
As they loudly pray
(As they loudly pray)
Scandal is their norm
(Scandal is their norm)
They have one every day
(They have one every day)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
And politics of hate

Members of John Birch
Some won’t admit they’re gay
But when they get down on their knees
(Get down on their knees)
That’s when they like to play
(When they like to play)
These slimy creatures should be told
(Creatures should be told)
Membership’s gone away
(Members gone away)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has led them all astray

(musical interlude)

Glenn Beck is a clown
(Glenn Beck is a clown)
What does Limbaugh weigh?
(What does Limbaugh weigh?)
Palin cannot talk
(Palin cannot talk)
She’s no Tina Fey
(She’s no Tina Fey)
Somebody should tell her
(Somebody should tell her)
To just go away
(To just go away)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has become so cliché
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has lost all its cache´
(Conservative dreamin’)
Drives voters all away
