Romney Quietly Outraising Palin

Look Who's Smiling Now

Not a day goes by when we do not hear something about the amazing Sarah Palin and her unstoppable technicolor quest for the presidency. The former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska is a shameless self-promoter who utilizes every form of the “lamestream media” (which she so frequently criticizes) to ceaselessly keep herself in the spotlight. She has a paid position with Fox News and appears thereon whenever she pleases. She has a reality television series in which she has the opportunity to espouse her political beliefs on a weekly basis. She releases ghost-written books and goes on a cross-country book signing tour every year. She appears regularly as a guest on conservative talk radio programs and she sends out an endless barrage of Facebook posts and Twitter tweets over the internets tubes. In short, Sarah Palin appears more often in the print media, television media, radio media and internet media than any person in America other than perhaps Justin Bieber. A curious fact when you consider that only two short years ago she criticized then candidate Barack Obama for being a celebrity.

One thing that the American public will not learn about Sarah Palin from all of her media over-exposure however, is that in the all important money raising race, she is losing. Palin sent waves through the political world earlier this week when Time reported that she raised $469,000 from October 13th through November 22nd. Problem is, during that same period, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has quietly hauled in more than $558,000. Romney has always been a strong fundraiser but has remained under the radar during that time period compared to Palin with her TV show and her daughter’s run on “Dancing With The Stars.” Nevertheless, despite his low profile, Romney has proven that he can out-raise Palin even when she is at her highest profile. To add insult to injury, Romney appeared on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Wednesday and took a jab at Palin by saying that he could not imagine quitting as governor. Needless to say, none of this bodes well for the “Queen of Quit”.

How long before her retort on Facebook or Twitter?

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Lynnrockets needs your help. Boston’s largest talk radio station (WRKO AM) has chosen Lynnrockets as a finalist in its “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Yours truly has been selected  by the station’s staff (from over 200 entries) to be one of 10 finalists for a position with the station as a “liberal” blogger.

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.

LIVIN’ LA VIDA LOCO

(sung to the Ricky Martin song “Livin’ La Vida Loca”)

She’s into superstitions, witch mass and voodoo dolls
I feel a premonition Sarah wants to break some balls
She’s into impregnations, no “safe sex” for the far right
She needs an intervention most every day and night

She’ll take you wolf hunting while you are shooting from a plane
She’ll try to live her crazy life as it goes right down the drain
Like she did to John McCain

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco

Woke up in New York City in a funky chic hotel
She got her start with SarahPAC money
Her mantra still is  “Drill Baby Drill”
Had a pregnant teen daughter, condemns safe-sex just the same
If you’re related to her, you’ll want to change your name
Yeah, she has gone quite insane

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco

She’ll take you wolf hunting while you are shooting from a plane
She’ll try to live her crazy life as it goes right down the drain
Like she did to John McCain

Upside, inside out she’s livin’ la vida loco
She’ll wink and blink you down, livin’ la vida loco
Her lips are devil red and her hair’s the color cocoa
She will wear you out livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
Livin’ la vida loco. Come on!
She’s livin’ la vida loco

  1. That Vida Loco quitter needs a padded cell already. Glad to see others commenting and voting.

  2. Elephant’s Memory

    Mama Grifter has hinted that she won’t run if she finds a suitably worthy contender anxious for her endorsement, and, in an emergency, Huckabee could vie for the fundamentalist vote.

    So why did Romney insult the Twitter Quitter for no good reason? As the Establishment “blue blood” candidate he would have no trouble beating Huckabee (or Palin) in the primaries- why incur the grifter’s wrath and fury? Leave that to Scarborough!

  3. Christine O’Donnell not going on “Dancing with the Stars” after all

    “The 2010 midterm elections were just the beginning—the first rumblings of a revolution that has not fully erupted. I plan on making my book one of the revolution’s catalysts.”
