Lighthearted Labor Day Laughs (at the Palins’ Expense, of Course)
Sarah Palin’s favorite holiday is Labor Day. After all, her husband Todd has been a card-carrying labor union member in the oil industry (although neither he nor she ever bring that subject up). Also too, Sarah has been in labor either four, five or six times depending on who you believe. That being said, we can be sure that the grills were be serving up plenty of moose meat at Chez Palin today. Will neighbor/author Joe McGinniss be invited to share in the warm-hearted Palin frivolity which includes such things as expletive laden shouting tirades between Sarah and Todd, the “four letter word maximum” Scrabble tournament, or the three legged mukluk races? Let’s hope the entire Palin clan has a little light-hearted fun as the summer ends and Sarah begins to prepare for her her big September 11th surprise with Glenn Beck.
In the meantime, Lynnrockets would like to take all you faithful Rocketeers on a little stroll down memory lane. Here is wishing you all a wonderful day!

THE WRECK OF THE SARAH L. PALIN
(sung to the Gordon Lightfoot song “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald ”)
The legend lives on from the North Slope on down
To the town they call Sandpoint, Idaho
The Heath’s one would say, had a daughter that day
Why they kept her, I must say, “I don’t know”
They loaded up the truck and they tested their luck
When they moved to Wasilla, Alaska
Sarah enrolled in school and was nobody’s fool
On the court they called her “Barracuda”.
In 1982 she left for Honolulu
Off to Hawaii Pacific College
She did not last long there nor at anywhere
In her quest for some meaningful knowledge.
She finally did see a journalism degree
After stints at 5 or 6 safety schools
Sometime in between she was a pageant queen
Then she worked in TV for KTUU.
She met up with her fate sometime in ’88
When her TV career was a failin’
And everyone knew, as her parents did too
She would soon be the Bride of Todd Palin.
Long before she did wed, she conceived in his bed
That was the end of her abstinency
While laid out on her back, she gave birth to Lil’ Track
The result of an unwed pregnancy.
She was now in a lurch cuz of her right wing church
But she carried on without a care
She had a beehive hairdo, but had nothing to do
That all changed when she became the Mayor.
She appointed some crooks then she banned some good books
No one lasted if they weren’t on her team
Wasilla’s deficit grew, kids fired-up on homebrew
Not to mention the methamphetamine.
She became the next Guv and to show the state love
She proposed to unite remote shore banks
But once in a bind she politely declined
To the bridge she said,”Thanks but no thanks”.
John McCain now you see had to choose a VP
His campaign was certainly failin’
He wanted a she that was trés “mavericky”
So he chose Alaska’s Sarah Palin.
But poor press reviews of her live interviews
With Couric and Gibson oft replayed
Showed she could not spar with the nightly news stars
Let alone outperform Tina Fey
The election was lost and poor Sarah was tossed
From her seat on “The Straight Talk Express”
She went home and did pose in her new store-bought clothes
But Alaskans were not now impressed
She’s no longer a saint due to ethics complaints
She has nobody left now to wink at
Her appointees ignored and her actions abhorred
She’s reduced to shilling for “Arctic Cat”
She gave Levi some lip about visiting Tripp
And Todd’s sister is facing some jailin’
But paternity laws might be the final straw
For the wreck known as Sarah L. Palin
