Palin Laments, “Say It Ain’t So, Joe”!

"Damn You, Joe Scarborough!"

Who says that nobody listens to Sarah Palin? For months now the cliché-loving, former ex-quitting, half-term Governor of Alaska has been whining about anonymous sources who have chastised her in the “lamestream media”. She has challenged them to “man-up” and put their names to their denunciations. She has implored her unknown assailants to strip themselves of their veils of secrecy and face her “mano-a-mano”. Well Sarah, as the Good Book says, “ask and you shall receive”. Remember however, to “be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it”. Yesterday, MSNBC‘s Joe Scarborough accepted your challenge and “told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”.

The television talk show host and former conservative Republican congressman from Florida publicly aired his thoughts about Sarah Palin. It was not pretty. In a blistering rebuke of the potential 2012 GOP candidate for President of the United States, Joe Scarborough left nothing on the table. In an interview with he said,

“What man or mouse with a fully functioning human brain and a résumé as thin as Palin’s would flirt with a presidential run? It makes the political biography of Barack Obama look more like Winston Churchill’s.”

Scarborough then addressed Palin’s recent characterization of former President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush as out-of-touch “blue bloods”. He said,

“Perhaps her anger was understandable. After all, these disconnected “blue bloods” had nothing in their backgrounds that could ever make them understand “real America” like a former governor from Alaska who quit in the middle of her first term and then got rich. I suppose Palin’s harsh dismissal of this great man is more understandable after one reads her biography and realizes that, like Bush, she accomplished a great deal in her early 20s. Who wouldn’t agree that finishing third in the Miss Alaska beauty contest is every bit as treacherous as risking your life in military combat?”

Scarborough also described Sarah Palin’s potential quest for the Presidency as a “dopey dream”.

How will Palin react? The Vegas bookmakers have it at even odds that her first retort will be via either Facebook or Twitter. Perhaps she will dust-off her old one-liner from her disastrous 2008 Vice Presidential Debate wherein she so cleverly said to Biden, “Say it ain’t so, Joe”!

Like Bristol, I lack talent but with all of you voting for me, I may be able to pull-off an upset win. I offer my eternal gratitude if you loyal Rocketeers will visit the WRKO website (Here) and vote for wait…wait…here comes the spoiler…”Kevin McCarthy”. Looks like I’ve now been officially outed.

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.

“Scarborough Fair” song link:


(sung to the Simon and Garfunkel song “Scarborough Fair”)

Now we’re talkin’, Joe Scarborough’s fair.
He was sage and thoughtful this time.
Of Sarah P., he laid the facts bare.
Electing her should be deemed a crime.

Scarborough dragged Palin right through the dirt.
(She is shallow and shrill bordering on obscene)
Sarah’s rage will explode this time.
(World –view is narrow, ignorance unbound)
She twits and tweets like a dumb jerk.
(Empress sans clothes just sneerin’ and poutin’)
Joe Scarborough nailed her this time.
(Sarah Palin will give him a call)

Joe says that Palin’s a mouse, not a man.
(A thin résumé, a failed beauty queen)
On the stage, she thinks she’s just fine.
(Watch her wave to all of her peers)
Truth be told, her script’s on her hands.
(Palin dreams and prays she’s “The Next One”)
Joe Scarborough thinks she is slime.

Her Twitter tweets are a fickle bellwether.
(Her anger blazing like rabid wild stallions)
Facebook rage will come in due time.
(Sarah will order her soldiers to kill)
But the seething mol can’t keep it together.
(Few will fight for a cause long forgotten)
Joe Scarborough beat her this time.

Now we’re talkin’, Joe Scarborough’s fair.
He was sage and thoughtful this time.
Of Sarah P., he laid the facts bare.
Electing her should be deemed a crime.

  1. Like Bristol, I lack talent…
    LOL worthy, but not true. You have an awesome blog. I’ll be voting “early and often”!
    As to Joe’s comments, he is a reasonable guy, not a partisan hack, so his words have more weight than those of the Fox News mouthpieces.

  2. Nice work on the new song.

    I hope others take his lead and speak out.

    Along those “ask and ye shall receive” lines, could she just be frog marched to jail already?

  3. loved Joe’s zingers – what man ‘or mouse with a fully functional human brain’ and the beauty contest reference LOL!!

    I’m sure you are correct – facebook rage will come in due time…

    • The v on my phone is dying, but I left Prada up because I thought it was funny in her grifting context. I’m not sure if she knows that design house OR that paper.

      • Capitalism still alive and well. No, not Pravda!

        “On the plus side for Caribou Barbie apparently her PAC managed to squeeze nearly $500,000 from the low hanging fruit that still supports her in a little over a month, and used some of those funds to turn around and buy $64,0000 worth of her OWN book. Because nothing says “rill Amerikun” like being stupid enough to send your hard earned money to a reality star so that she can buy copies of a book written for her by ghostwriters to give as gifts to people in order to encourage them to give her even MORE money.”

      • haha, I’m SURE she knows what Prada is, but Pravda? No way, and that’s the truth 😉

    • OMG, great article!! Especially liked these descriptors

      ….Sarah Palin a pith-headed bimbo from the back of beyond… she shows the tact of a boorish drunkard bawling obscenities at a funeral…

      • The authors had many gems for us blood thirsty shut ins. Both the Pravda author and Gryphen. Letting out their inner smart ass, for a wide audience.

  4. Showgirls

    Scarborough works hard every day to assume the best of Americans who engage in public service. Really? If he’s referring to Republican “public servants” obsessed with tax cuts for the Koch Brothers, one wonders how hard he has to work, exactly.

    In any case, it was very thoughtful of Joe to “man up” and defend GHW Bush’s courage, because it was pretty lame of ol’ Herbert to leave the slagging of Palin to his wife, Barbara. OK, that Barbara is pretty scary!

  5. i think the problem is too many people try to take shortcuts when writing a resume and they dont really reflect on their personal goals and achievements
