Sarah Palin, The Idiot Idahoan Endorses Vaughn Ward, The Idiot Idahoan

Sarah Palin and Vaugn Ward

You might recall that Sarah Palin was born in Idaho and eventually graduated from the University of Idaho. That makes sense inasmuch as the former ex-quitting Governor of Alaska is as dumb as a potato. We all still chuckle at the fact that the “Queen of Quit” was incapable of naming a newspaper that she reads; naming a Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade; and realizing that Africa is a continent. Well, the brain-dead spud was back in Idaho Friday where she aligned herself with yet another geographically challenged imbecile.

Palin has endorsed Republican Vaughn Ward for Idaho’s 1st District Congressional seat currently held by Democrat Walt Minnick. Palin and Ward are a match made in heaven because they are both stupid. During a Wednesday night debate with his primary opponent, Raul Labrador, Ward made a Palinesque sized embarrassing flub. The Washington Post reports that, “The candidates got a question on whether they supported statehood for Puerto Rico. Labrador, who is from Puerto Rico, said he didn’t. And then Ward unleashed this:

The problem with extending statehood to some, to any other country, is that then, the infrastructure requirements — everything that we have under our laws, regulations, then applies to them. The infrastructure needs, I have read, cost an enormous amount of money. It is not time to grow the United States. Not today, not tomorrow. I don’t see a time when we would. We’re 50 states, I want to see us stay at that. When you can show me we’ve balanced the budget, we’ve got things under control, we’ve got immigration under control, we’ve got jobs in America, we can start maybe then looking. But I don’t see that happening in my lifetime. Let’s focus on America first. Let’s focus on what’s important here. And it’s about putting Americans back to work. It’s about putting this country right again. And I don’t see that — I don’t care what state it is, or what country that wants to become part of America. It’s not time, it’s not going to be time. Let’s focus on us, first.

Labrador then said, “I just need to correct. Puerto Rico’s not a country. Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. It’s about time that we take some civics lesson and we learned what Puerto Rico is.”

Vaughn Ward’s brilliant response? “I really don’t care what it is. It doesn’t matter.”

Let’s go to the video…

Just like Sarah Palin, this guy simply will not let facts get in the way. Remember Palin’s “death panels”? They were proven to be a lie and yet she still harps on about their fictitious existence. Her endorsement of Vaugn Ward could be the inspiration for a seqal to the film Dumb and Dumber!

And that brings us to today’s parody. 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 the parody.

(sung to the 1910 Fruitgum Company song “Simon Says”)

She likes to play a game,
That is so much fun,
And it’s something even she can do,
The name of the game is “Simple Sarah Says”,
And she would like for you to play it too

Put style gel in your hair,
Simple Sarah says,
Lipstick on your mouth,
Simple Sarah says,
Do it when Palin says,
Simple Sarah says,
And they will vote you right out

Simple Sarah says,
Put glasses on your head,
Don some pants that stretch,
Sarah says,

Simple Sarah says,
Get Bristol out of bed,
That Levi is stiff,
Sarah says,

A beehive on your head,
Simple Sarah says,
The First Dude by your side,
Simple Sarah says,
Hate speech for the left,
Simple Sarah says,
Kind words for the right

(musical interlude)

F-me pumps that are red,
Simple Sarah says,
A gun strapped to your side,
Simple Sarah says,
Diversity left,
Simple Sarah says,
Only whites on the right

Now that we have learned,
To play this game with she,
Sarah Palin has something to do,
Let’s try it once again,
We’ll mimic Sarah P.,
But let’s do it while we’re drinking too

Go kill a polar bear,
Simple Sarah says,
Give your shoes a shine,
Simple Sarah says,
Dress yourself like a whore,
Simple Sarah says,
Ah, you’re looking fine,
Simple Sarah says,
Now, interview if you dare,
Simple Sarah says,
Mingle with the slime,
Simple Sarah says,
Get your ass out the door,
Simple Sarah says,
Make it double time

Arizona Gets Becked By Boycotters

Just as Glenn Beck’s racist comments resulted in a massive advertiser boycott of his Fox News program to the extent that the show has virtually no sponsors, The State of Arizona is now facing a boycott of its own. In addition to the five pending lawsuits against the state’s recently enacted racial profiling law which may, on their own, prevent the law from ever being utilized, many municipalities have officially enacted boycotts against Arizona. This ever growing list of cities has each passed ordinances which prohibit city employees from traveling to Arizona and the municipalities have also prohibited any city contracts with Arizona businesses. Here is the list of boycotting cities to date:

-Seattle, Washington
-El Paso, Texas
-Austin, Texas
-Boston, Massachusetts
-St. Paul, Minnesota
-Boulder, Colorado
-San Diego, California
-West Hollywood, California
-San Francisco, California
-Los Angeles, California
-Oakland, California

Keep up the good work, fair cities!

Arizona song link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhdiSqt6sXE


(sung to the Mark Lindsay song “Arizona”)

I sure do long for San Francisco
This Arizona day
They just pulled over ol’ Pedro and Cisco
Racism has its way
Police don’t believe in brotherhood or neighborhood
If your skin is brown, you’re prey
And Jan Brewer we all laugh at her
As she initiates the neo-Nazi ways

Arizona – take off your racist shades
Arizona – have another look at the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – hey, put down that Kool-Aid

Mmmm try as you might, you’ll never solve your problems by deporting a child
Coat them in red paint as you place them in shackled restraints
Arizona – you’ve made the evening news
Arizona – You’ll have pure white highways

Lock them both up, Pedro and Cisco
Make them sit there and wait
As the wheels of justice turn so slow
Just stare at them with hate
And you can tell them that brotherhood and neighborhood
Is the Arizonan way
But you and they know it’s an untrue fable
To justify locking them away

Arizona – now you resemble Hades
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Hey, Arizona – discard your racist views
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – next will it be the Jews?
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Come on, hey, Arizona – cast off your racist ways.

The Talking Heads

Allmusic tells us, at the start of their career, Talking Heads were all nervous energy, detached emotion, and subdued minimalism. When they released their last album about 12 years later, the band had recorded everything from art-funk to polyrhythmic worldbeat explorations and simple, melodic guitar pop. Between their first album in 1977 and their last in 1988, Talking Heads became one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the ’80s, while managing to earn several pop hits. While some of their music can seem too self-consciously experimental, clever, and intellectual for its own good, at their best Talking Heads represent everything good about art-school punks.

And they were literally art-school punks. Guitarist/vocalist David Byrne, drummer Chris Frantz, and bassist Tina Weymouth met at the Rhode Island School of Design in the early ’70s; they decided to move to New York in 1974 to concentrate on making music. The next year, the band won a spot opening for the Ramones at the seminal New York punk club CBGB. In 1976, keyboardist Jerry Harrison, a former member of Jonathan Richman’s Modern Lovers (who, by the way, were featured on a Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off Music Byte a few weeks ago), was added to the lineup. By 1977, the band had signed to Sire Records and released its first album, Talking Heads: 77. It received a considerable amount of acclaim for its stripped-down rock & roll, particularly Byrne’s geeky, overly intellectual lyrics and uncomfortable, jerky vocals.

Talking Heads embarked on an extensive tour in 1984, which would turn out to be their last; it’s captured on the Jonathan Demme-directed concert film Stop Making Sense. This video clip of Life During Wartime is from that movie. Take note that the band’s dance-like performing seems to be as impressive as the music. The band is now dissolved and frontman, David Byrne has vowed to never reunite with his former bandmates.

Please enjoy this video clip of the Talking Heads performing their haunting song “Heaven” from the Stop Making Sense film.
