Mitt(wit) Romney Outpaces Failin’ Palin

The Shark and his Prey

Sarah Palin has recently benefited from a lot of speculation, rumors and self promoting innuendo regarding a potential run for President in 2012. She has been making appearances and injecting herself (in the form of endorsements and campaign contributions) in the local politics of early primary states. She is staying active on the conservative word-salad loving speaking speaking tour. She even added fuel to the fire about a possible run with BFF, Sean Hannity of Faux News recently when she said,

I don’t want to hurt the cause. I don’t want to divide the nation. There’s going to be a lot of contemplation and prayer that goes into a decision like that between now and ’12.

Problem is, despite all the buzz, Palin (the former half-term Governor of Alaska) is being demonstratively outpaced in fundraising by Mitt Romney (the former full-term Governor of Massachusetts and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate). While Ms. Quittypants has been busy courting the Tea-Baggers, endorsing radical candidates and making controversial and abrasive remarks via Facebook and Twitter, Mitt(wit) has been quietly going about the business of coordinating an effective campaign by amassing the most important tool in a candidate’s arsenal – money.

CNN reports that Mitt Romney raised $1.8 million during the second fundraising quarter of this year, far outpacing the other Republicans he may face in the next presidential race. He has also  devoted considerable money to building an extensive national political network, doling out more than $400,000 to various 2010 candidates through his Free and Strong America political action committee and its state-level affiliates. All told, Romney has collected $3.4 million since the beginning of the year – more than double the roughly $1.3 million that each of his next closest rivals in the money chase, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, raised during the same period. Also, with less  than four months until the midterm elections, Romney has nearly $2.2 million left in the bank, giving him the financial muscle necessary to be a power player in Republican politics as November nears.

Conversely, in the second quarter, Palin raised $865,000, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission. She spent $87,500 contributing to Republican candidates and has roughly $1 million on hand. Bottom line? Palin is a sprinter that lacks the endurance of marathoner Romney. Palin is a plebian and Romney is a power-broker. Palin is a fad and Romney is a presence.

Despite the fact that Mitt(wit) Romney is a far more credible Presidential candidate (along with many others) than the hollow Palin, don’t you just hope that she throws her hat into the ring for 2012? Imagine all the side-splitting laughs we will have when she is publicly eviscerated (ala Katie Couric) by the serious candidates in the Republican primary debates. Won’t it be a hoot to see her trying to answer a question by means of surreptitiously peeking at her palm-printed crib notes? We can all stare in dumbfounded disbelief as she tries to substitute a flurry of winks, blinks and “Ya Betchas” for coherent responses. Oh, please Run Sarah, Run!

2-0-1-2

(sung to the Village People song “Y-M-C-A”)

Sarah, there’s no need to feel down
I said, Sarah, just because you’re a clown
I said, Sarah, a smile isn’t a frown
There’s no need to be unhappy.

Sarah, you lost a race with McCain
I said, Sarah, you flushed him right down the drain
And you messed up all of your interviews
But you’re still on the nightly news

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

We’ll have such a good time when you fall on your face,
And we’ll revel in your disgrace…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You will have SarahPac, and a new running mate
To help spread Politics of Hate…

Sarah, are you listening to me?
I said, Sarah, you’ll have to go on TV
I said, Sarah, I’m sure we’ll laugh till we pee
And you’ve got to know this one thing!

You make a big ass of yourself
Every time that you open your mouth
You give ammo, to our friend Tina Fey
She just repeats the things you say…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You’ll get all of the votes from the states that are red
But, the G.O.P. is now dead…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, you’ll need a fork cuz you’re done…

Sarah, you’ll have a case of the blues
I said, Sarah, has no grasp of world views
But that’s OK, cuz she amuses us,
As we throw her under the bus…

That’s when she will realize that,
Her future, is modeling for “Arctic Cat”
Maybe she’ll host a reality show
If they pay her with enough dough.

We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2

She can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, she’ll need a fork cuz she’s done…

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll wear a big frown
Sarah, Sarah to us you are a clown

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll have a case of the blues
Sarah, Sarah I said, why don’t you just go vamoos.

  2. Alien vs. Predator

    It would be fun! But not for Palin. She’s way too lazy, and venal. Besides, God already left the door wide open for her to get rich ministering to her base! God knows, bowling center operators wouldn’t be interested if she were to be trounced, once and for all, in the Republican primaries.

    The “Mama Bear” persona would be a wonderful cover for not running so as to protect “the cubs” from incessant prying from Us and People magazines!
