Sarah Palin And Ron Paul In Tea Party Tempest?

It is a very distinct possibility that the Tea Party could devolve into a disgustingly messy food fight. You see, long before anybody in the “Lower 48” (BTW, why don’t they call it the “Lower 49”?) ever heard of Sarah Palin, there was a man who advocated all the crazy things that the Tea Party holds so dear. You know, like abolishing the Federal Reserve and essentially shrinking the federal government into nothingness. Indeed, this man actually ran for the presidency in 2008 and not the vice presidency. Furthermore, this guy garnered a very respectable 10% and 14% of the vote respectively in Iowa and Nevada. Last and certainly not least, this guy has a rabid cultish-like group of devoted supporters. Ron Paul you see, may pose a formidable problem for Sarah Palin should they both seek the presidency in 2012.

Last Sunday the New York Times published a story about Ron Paul in which the original Tea-Bagger said that “it’s at least 50-50″ that he will run for president in 2012. He is generally viewed as better schooled and much more worldly in the realm of politics than is Sarah Palin. He does not match Palin’s star-powered celebrity status but he is viewed by many far-right conservatives as more pure in his libertarianism and therefore more closely aligned with core Tea Party values. A Ron Paul candidacy consequently, is bad news for any other candidate seeking to run on Tea Party support. Paul has virtually no chance of winning the nomination, but he would surely steal a significant number of Tea-Bagger votes from any other candidate relying on that base. Such a vote-split would diminish the chances of Sarah Palin while simultaneously escalating the chances of someone more moderate and business minded like for instance, Mitt”wit” Romney. In essence, a battle of Tea-Baggers would probably lead to the Tea Party’s loss.

SARAH THE SNOWGAL

(sung to the Christmas song “Frosty the Snowman”)

Sarah the Snowgal was a lipsticked hockey mom
With a beehive ‘do and a “wink, wink” too
U. of Idaho alum

Sarah the Snowgal was enticed by Johnny Mack
To be his V.P., she was “mavericky”
And was liked by “Joe Sixpack”

The first mistake she made was to agree to interviews
For when she tried to speak aloud
She was just so damn confused

Oh, Sarah the Snowgal couldn’t be any dumber
She’s a babbling brook, couldn’t name a book
And she loves “Joe the Plumber”

Yakity yak yak,
Yakity yak yak,
Look at her glazed stare
Yakity yak yak,
Yakity yak yak,
Her head’s full of air

Sarah the Snowgal was almost a pageant queen
But her parenting skill was darn near nil
So, an unwed pregnant teen

Things spiraled downward right up to election day
“Politics of Hate” and then “Troopergate”
Not to mention Tina Fey

The election did not go well, it ended in defeat
Levi’s mom was busted too
She was dealing Oxy-C

Poor Sarah the Snowgal now has no-one to wink at
She will run again, but until then
Ol’ Fox News is where she’s at

Yakity yak yak,
Yakity yak yak.
All she does is gripe
Yakity yak yak,
Yakity yak yak,
It’s media hype
