“Take A Look At Palin: What’s Not To Hate?”

We just want to share the following letter to the editor which was posted on Gazettetimes.com, the online version of the Corvallis Gazette-Times this morning.

Letter: Take a look at Palin: What’s not to hate? (Jan. 4)



I’m answering Joe Rariden’s question: Why do Democrats hate Sarah Palin so much? (Letter, Dec. 31)

It’s easy to answer, Joe. She’s scary, mean, apparently dislikes wolves (sure, hunt ’em from planes – why not?!) and polar bears, and she is the living, breathing incarnation of what the Republicans have given this country over the last two presidential terms. They have fostered and nurtured feelings of fear, hatred, paranoia and ignorance. Sarah Palin stands for all of those things, Joe, and she, I’m sure, joins other Republicans in wishing the current president all the bad will they can muster.

I’m for the recovery, security and well-being of our country. Can we trust Sarah Palin (and the Republican Party) to feel the same?

How can we not dislike a person who won’t say what magazines she reads, who throws her pregnant, unmarried daughter at us like a challenge, and whose shrill call to arms is unproductive, at best, and harmful, at the worst?

And, Joe – yes, she could make more of a mess than we are in now, just by continuing the policies the last Republican president has brought upon us.

Well said, Rebecca. It is always refreshing to see that there are a great number of people out there who may not simply contribute to all the Anti-Palin blogs, but are  willing to put their names and ideas out there in the “mainstream media”. Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off would like to see much more of this.

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

(sung to the Beatles song “Sexy Sadie”)

Sexy Sarah what have you done
You’re now a fool to everyone
You’re now a fool to everyone
Sexy Sarah, ooh your day is done

Sexy Sarah with your own rules
You only speak if there’s a fee
You only speak if there’s a fee
Sexy Sarah, oooh your fans are fools

There was a day when you were just a lousy mother
Then John McCain came looking for someone
Sexy Sarah the lamest of them all

Sexy Sarah became the show
Although she didn’t have a clue
Although she didn’t have a clue
Sexy Sarah, oooh “went with the flow’

Sexy Sarah you’ll get yours yet
However big you think you are
However big you think you are
Sexy Sarah, oooh you’ll get yours yet

They gave her everything they owned just to sit at her table
Maybe she would let them kiss her ring
Sexy Sarah was the latest and the greatest of them all

She’s now a fool to everyone
Sexy Sarah,

However big you think you are
Sexy Sarah.
