Sarah Palin And Her Devil Dogs (Update)

Lynnrockets will continue with some Halloween song parodies this spooky week. Have fun. Now, let’s get to it…

Sometimes we bloggers have to leave it to the professionals to sum things up in a truly enlightening way. Such is the case today for Lynnrockets. Please enjoy some excerpts from an article by Diane Roberts of the UK Guardian which “tells it like it is” regarding Sarah Palin, the “Mama Grizzlies” and the Tea Party. When you are finished, please read the whole article here.

“Former governor Sarah Palin says she’s a feminist, “Mama Grizzly”. She supports female candidates such as Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell, endorsing them, stumping for them, helping them to raise money. Along with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Fox News regulars Liz Cheney and Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin gathers Tea Party women under the big bearskin tent of “conservative feminism”.

Precisely what “conservative feminism” embraces is not clear – it sounds like an oxymoron in the vein of ”jumbo shrimp” or “creation science”. Clearly, “conservative feminism” doesn’t mean support for working mothers: Bachmann voted against a bill that would allow up to four weeks’ maternity leave for federal employees. It doesn’t mean equal pay for equal work: Palin opposed the Lilly Ledbetter Act on the grounds it would be “a boon for trial lawyers”.

Equal opportunity doesn’t seem to matter much to them: Christine O’Donnell has said that she thinks women impede the combat readiness of the American military. For all that conservatives such as Tammy Bruce insist the right is more “tolerant” than the left, the likes of Palin, O’Donnell and Angle regularly slam “the gay agenda”. Though they snarl about protecting their “cubs”, they want to repeal the healthcare act, which protects children with pre-existing conditions from being denied insurance. And it sure doesn’t mean safeguarding a woman’s right to control her own body – they are so anti-abortion that they believe that a victim of rape should be forced to carry the child to term.

The reactionary end of the Republican party seems to be as dumb as a bag of hammers and proud of it. Jim DeMint, the senator from South Carolina and Tea Party godfather, wondered out loud if maybe gay men and single women who dare to have sex shouldn’t be barred from teaching in public schools. At a recent Delaware senate candidates’ debate, Christine O’Donnell was incredulous that the doctrine of separation of church and state was to be found in first amendment to the US constitution.

Most Tea Partiers don’t hold with evolution and don’t ”believe” in climate change, either. A recent New York Times story quoted various rightwingers calling it a “lie” and a “hoax”. One man said he “based his view on the preaching of Rush Limbaugh and the teaching of scripture”.

You’d have thought we had enough of arrogant stupidity in the Bush years. These people are not pro-woman. They say they want to take the country back; evidently, they mean back to when abortion was illegal, to when contraception was hard to get hold of, to a world of rigid gender roles and women being judged on how they look, back to when men were men and women were ladies.

The she-bears and their fellow travellers don’t do sisterhood. ”Conservative feminism” has nothing to do with empowering women in general, and everything to do with empowering these women in particular. They’ve ripped language away from meaning: they say they are pro-woman, but their policies are decidedly anti. As George Orwell taught us, war is not peace, and ignorance is not strength.”

Great article wouldn’t you say? Lynnrockets believes Ms. Roberts put it best when she says, “The Tea Party brand of ‘conservative feminism’ is a fraud. These people are not pro-women but reactionary – and really dumb.”

So, now that we have shown that even those “across the pond” believe that Sarah Palin and her ilk have the devil in their hearts, let’s have a song.

UPDATE

Fox News‘ Joe Scarborough seems to echo the UK Guardian. On his program “Morning Joe” this morning, Scarborough intoned that if only Sarah Palin hadn’t promoted the likes of Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell, Republicans would be on the verge of winning the Senate majority.  That was Joe Scarborough’s thesis on Morning Joe today, culminating in Scarborough saying that he hopes Sarah Palin “is proud of herself” for having killed the GOP’s chances. He also tried to ward off those oh-so-predictable Palinbot attacks by saying, “right-wing freaks, don’t email me going “you’re a RINO.”

Wow, is their one semi-sane voice on Fox?

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.

DEVIL IN HER HEART

(sung to the Beatles song “Devil In Her Heart”)

She’s got the devil in her heart
But the rednecks fantasize
That Palin is a sleazy tart
But her politics just chill me

Her smirking glances
Vocal dances
She’s a lipstick wearing pig
She’s just so flirty
Politics dirty
She’s a wicked entity

She’s got the devil in her heart
And some tricks are up her sleeve
Palin’s a dime store work of art
A web of lies she will weave

I’ll bet she leaves that Alaskan winter snow
She’ll board a bus to be with Plumber Joe
Palin is quirky
Her future’s murky
Like the G.O.P.’s

She’s got the devil in her heart
I know, know, know Palin will deceive
Next she’ll be working at K-Mart
Cuz today she is naïve

Sarah’s stance is to raise finances
From her writing debut
She’s just as perky
As fresh killed turkey
As we witnessed on TV

She’s got the devil in her heart
I know, know, know  and I do believe
She fell right off the donkey cart
Sarah should be on sick leave

She’s got the devil in her heart
And she’s no angel we can see
She’s got the devil in her heart
No, she’s no angel we can see

  1. Is Joe Scarborough on Fox? I thought he was host of a morning show on MSNBC called morning joe.

  2. Eh. He looks semi-sane at first. http://townhall.com/columnists/JoeScarborough/2010/02/18/am_i_not_conservative_enough/page/2 Is he too dense to see Fixed News is the t-party channel? He aims the criticism far too narrow, you see. If he were serious about being respectable, he wouldn’t admit here to defending the some of the lowest, craziest scumbags.

  3. Those lines right there create my thesis that he’s completely deluded.

  4. The ones he types about being a defended of the same things he rails against, I guess?

  5. Oh! Oh! Don’t forget how Ann Coulter doesn’t think women should be allowed to vote.
