Tuesday Night Music Byte

Maybe Sarah Palin and the Tea-Baggers should listen to this…

Scott Brown Declines Sarah Palin Tea-Bagging Offer

Whenever Lynnrockets gets to use the names Scott Brown and Sarah Palin in the same headline, it is a good day for the Democrats.

That having been said, the most newly elected US Senator from the “Party of No” has just said “No” to  Sarah Palin. The former ex-quitting Governor of Alaska will be in Boston, Massachusetts tomorrow as one of the featured speakers at a Tea Party rally, but Scott Brown has refused her invitation to be tea-bagged. He dares not attend the event. Indeed, the headline in yesterday’s Boston Herald (the conservative tabloid rag which plays a distant second fiddle to Boston’s newspaper of record, The Boston Globe) blared, “Scott Brown Snubs Sarah Palin, Bags Tea Party Rally”.

Despite the fact that out of state money and support from the Tea Party played a significant role in the surprise election of the clothing challenged Brown in last January’s special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, the group and Palin are now too toxic to Brown’s 2012 bid for re-election in Blue Massachusetts. The Boston Herald quotes political analyst Lou DiNatale as saying,

You’re worried at a rally that there’s a sign, a statement, an incident that’s certifiably cuckoo occurs. To win re-election, Scott Brown floating to the right is a serious problem. And showing up at a Sarah Palin, Tea Party event is not the way to the middle.

No truer words have been spoken. The educationally challenged Palin continues to parade around the country inciting Tea-Baggers to “reload” in a clear reference to a call to arms. She has placed rifle-sight targets over the districts of Democratic Party politicians on a website and she has taken up the John Boehner (pronounced, Boner) mantra of referring to the Republican Party as the “Party of Hell No”. Her “fightin’ words” are clearly driving away the moderates and that is a constituency that Scott Brown needs in Massachusetts. The last thing Brown wants is a photo of him and Palin together. After-all, he has enough problems with that nude centerfold spread (see above and below).

The Herald report also reminded us however, that this is not the first time that Scott brown has snubbed Sarah Palin,

Shortly after his triumph, Brown denied receiving a congratulatory call from Palin, only to remember the exchange when pressed.

Now we must wonder how Palin and the Tea-Baggers will react. Sarah Palin never takes kindly to any kind of criticism and she is the de-facto leader of the Tea-Baggers. However, Scott Brown is the rising star of the Republican Party. Do Palin and the Tea-Baggers dare to work against Brown and thereby impair his chances of advancement within the party? Let’s hope so! Stay tuned for the Battle of the Celebrity Stars.

Joining Scott Brown in boycotting the Tea-Bagger event will be other prominent (If one can use the words prominent and Republican in the same sentence in MA) Massachusetts Republicans. Gubernatorial candidate Charles D. Baker and conservative congressional candidate, Jeffrey D. Perry will also find other things to do on Wednesday. Apparently, they also find Palin to be unpalatable.

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 topical song parody.

(sung to the Dave Loggins song “Please Come To Boston”)

Please come to Boston late this spring time
Bring all your Tea-Bagger friends
To spread your doom and gloom
Holding misspelled banners on the sidewalk
Sarah Palin will fly in on her witch’s broom
Please come to Boston
For the show
It’s a Tea Party

And we’ll say, “Hey, Tea-Baggers,
Why don’t you settle down?
Boston ain’t your kind of town.
You’re being told that
We all despise Sarah P.
She won’t find many fans
Where we held the first Tea Party

Please come to Boston for a big brawl
Your heads shoved up in your asses so far
That they can’t be found.
Sarah Palin will bring the flames for fannin’
But Beantowners will bury her and not in hallowed ground.
Please come to Boston
Face your foes
In the city by the sea

And we’ll say, “Tea-Bagging boys,
Put your tea kettles down
Boston ain’t your kind of town.
You’re being told that
We all despise Sarah P.
She won’t find many fans
Where we held the real Tea Party

Now, Palin’s voice is a piercing sound
And no doubt, it’s never gonna stop
But ol’ Boston is a college town
With brains that she ain’t got
That goes for Van Flein too,
Her lawyer that she clings to.

Please come to Boston but not forever
Palin will provide a nice comedic fill
When her speech is finished we’ll throw her in the ocean
She’ll “go with the flow” like last July
She’ll look like an oil spill
Please come to Boston
Bring Plumber Joe
You can stay with Mitt Romney

And she said, Hey, Romney boy,
Why don’t you settle down?
Boston sure ain’t my kind of town
They don’t like fools so
They won’t like no-one like me.
No, no I am sure to be banned
In that city by the sea.
I am sure to be banned
In that city by the sea.”
