The First Dude Set The Mood

Todd Palin instructs Sarah on what to say at VP Debate.

He may not have much of an education. He may not be able to hold onto a job. He may never have been elected to public office. He may not even have his wedding band any longer, but Todd “The First Dude” Palin was personally involved with running the state of Alaska while his wife “what’s her name” was governor. reports “Nearly 3,000 pages of e-mails that Todd Palin exchanged with state officials, which were released to and NBC News by the state of Alaska under its public records law, draw a picture of a Palin administration where the governor’s husband got involved in a judicial appointment, monitored contract negotiations with public employee unions, received background checks on a corporate CEO, added his approval or disapproval to state board appointments and passed financial information marked “confidential” from his oil company employer to a state attorney”.

Ah-ha, so Todd was the brains behind the operation and we use the term “brains” loosely.

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.

The Ballad Of John And Yoko song link:


(Sung to the Beatles song “The Ballad of John and Yoko”)

Standing in the airport at Juneau,
Todd sporting his new campaign-bought pants.
But then SarahPac
Said,“They’ve got to go back”,
“You look just like a homo from France.”

Christ you know it ain’t easy,
You know how hard it can be,
To play second fiddle,
To the Caribou-Barbie.

Finally flew into Indiana
Sarah giving a Pro-Life speech
Her decision rejoiced,
As to her Baby Trig choice.
Because she practiced exactly what she preached.

Christ you know it ain’t easy,
Sarah admitted as much.
She did have a choice, though
She would deny one to us.

Meanwhile in her home-state of Alaska,
Wayne Ross was tapped for an open seat.
The Dem’s had a fear
That he was too anti-queer,
They said, “He’s never going to be the A.G.”

Christ you know they’re so sleazy,
But they’ll keep their wallets fat
By wearing those outfits
That they get from “Arctic Cat”

Keeping every penny of per-diem pay,
Lying about clothes to charity,
Daughter that’s unwed,
Boyfriends in her bed.
Her chances of  election
Pretty low – Think!

Relatives all getting arrested.
Family dignity in free-fall.
Constituents claim,
“Sarah is to blame”
Not much of a role-model at all.

Christ you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be.
You know where she’s going?
Into the Party of Tea.

How did we choose Sarah to begin with?
She is just a political hack.
A dumb “hockey mom”,
That can’t think and chew gum.
Why didn’t we elect “Joe Sixpack?”

Christ she makes us uneasy.
In Yiddish we say, “Oy Vey.”
We’d love to replace her
With our good friend, Tina Fey.
We’d love to replace her
With our good friend, Tina Fey.

  1. Wait until the story about why she had him fly with her to TX for her speech prior to her wild ride to give “birth” to Trig comes out. You know “you can’t have a fish picker born in TX.” She cancelled her state security escort and had her “brains” accompany her instead. There was also an email from someone who talked about her speech and said didn’t realize she was in labor. Probably because she was NOT. Christ, you know it ain’t easy!

    Great work on this post and song.

  2. Ohhhh! So it’s been Tod making the salad, she just adds the words.

  3. Palin’s Cheney

    Never mind that the Mister was secretly “the brains” behind the operation (fiendishly clever of him to settle for just some silk underpants at the RNC election shopping caper); what about all the brazen grifting?

    “Palin and her staff stewed over the refusal of the state Public Safety Department to provide a plane so the children could fly to Todd’s family’s home in Dillingham; after all, they were going to attend a bill signing, so the travel requests could be justified. Sarah Palin called the decision “outrageous,” and an aide said it provides “a great excuse to privatize” the governor’s jet service”.

    Ce que l’hell? Excuses s’il vous plaît!

    • Nothing against the French. In fact I spent many a summer in Quebec honing my hockey skills. I was simply drawing reference to Republicans that seem to always have a beef against France. Remember when they wanted to change the name of “French Fries” to “Freedom Fries”? Or when they always comment about the U.S. saving France’s butt in WWII, but they never mention that France saved our butt in the Revolutionary War. Also too, the Repubs aren’t to fond of gay people either. In short, the lyric was a slam at Republicans and not the French.

      Pardon moi !

  5. It’s all good. I got that it wasn’t you but was exactly something SarahPAC would say and was just funnin’ around. You are right that many ultra-right wing Americans don’t know that one of the most popular Revolutionary War heroes was Marquis de Lafayette, who returned to France and continued to assist Ambassador Benjamin Franklin, and then Thomas Jefferson on behalf of American interests. Their ignorance is amusing to me. Many of our cities are named after Lafayette, including Fayetteville, NC, which happens to be right next to Fort Bragg, “Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces.”
