We Did It! Lynnrockets Wins!

We are happy to announce that Lynnrockets has won the WRKO “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Thanks to all of you supporters there will now be a liberal voice on Boston’s biggest conservative talk radio station starting in January. In light of the conservative host lineup and audience, I am expecting to be the target of much vitriol but I believe I am tough enough to be up to the task. After all, I can just keep reminding myself that they are the minority in this bluest city in the bluest state.

Lynnrockets’ Blast -Off is not going anywhere, however. It will still be my priority to put the same effort into this blog. The only difference will be that my voice will now be heard in more than one venue. If any of you are interested in seeing how things are going in radio-land, the AM 680 WRKO website is here.

Once again, I thank all of you for your votes and support. Now let’s get back to the blog.

I WRITE THE SONGS

(sung to the Barry Manilow song “I Write The Songs”)

I sling the jive whenever,
I sit down and scribble a song
I put the words and Republicans together
I love music,
And I love these songs

I write the songs that I hope you folks sing
I write the songs to dethrone G.O.P. kings
I write the songs that expose all their lies
I write the songs, I write the songs

I’m from a state that’s deep blue,
And we make a damned good lobster roll
No, there aren’t many right wing guys
There’s some but then, all of them are very old

I write the songs that attack the right wing
I write the songs that I hope linger and sting
I write the songs that prompt Glenn Beck to cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh, I’ll take a hostile stance
When Limbaugh begins to rave and rant
And I’ll lead you to a poll, he can’t disprove
Palin has no heart,
So, I will tear her life apart
Hannity, Coulter too,
Also, too, O’Reilly
None of them can hide from me !!!

I write the songs about Mark Sanford’s flings
I write the songs about Larry Craig’s stings
I write the songs about Mark Foley’s guys
I write the songs, I write the songs

I write the songs about Joe Wilson’s slings
I write the songs of Vitter’s diapery things
I write the songs about all of those guys
I write the songs, I write the songs

I love music, so I write these songs

Palin To Receive “Just Desserts” For Attacks Against First Lady?

One is smart and one's a tart!

As was revealed last week, three national polls indicate that in a head-to-head match-up against Barack Obama for the 2012 Presidency, Palin would be shellacked. Each of those polls showed Obama winning by double digits with one poll giving him a whopping 22 point advantage. Palin admitted on Friday’s episode of Good Morning America that the poll results were “lousy”.

So what does the “Queen of Quit” do in an attempt to rehabilitate her blemished image? Does she “reload not retreat” and continue with her attacks against the President? Of course not. She now realizes that that tactic is failing. Consequently, the ex-former, quitting, half-term Governor of Alaska has set her sights on a different target. She can’t hurt the President personally, so she has now initiated a cat-fight and turned on his wife, the First Lady. Meow!

Is Palin unaware that Michelle Obama enjoys the highest positive ratings of just about anybody in the public eye? That means that it would be even more difficult to tarnish her public image than that of the President’s. Moreover, Palin has elected to criticize Michelle Obama’s signature public policy mission which is to educate families and children about the negative effects of obesity and help them to choose a more healthy diet. A sane rational person might deduce that the First Lady’s mission is both beneficial to the general health of our nation and wildly popular with parents who must compete on a daily basis with massive corporations touting sugar and fat laden foods that are tantamount to a heart attack in a box. A sane rational person might understand that obesity is pervasive as is evidenced by reality television shows such as “The Biggest Loser”. A sane rational person would also connect the dots and understand that a healthier population would help bring down the skyrocketing costs of medical treatment which are handcuffing our nation. A sane rational person, at the very least, would realize that promoting a healthy diet is not a bad thing. Sarah Palin however, is not a sane rational person.

In a blatant swipe at Ms. Obama in Sunday’s episode of her un-reality television show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”, Palin was shown making s’mores and she proclaims the marshmallow and chocolate treat is “in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert.” Of course that is not in any way what the First Lady actually said. Sarah Palin of course, misconstrues the words of others as much as she butchers the English language. Michelle Obama actually said this,

“In the afternoon, there was no way we’d be allowed to lie around the house watching TV. Our parents made us get up and play outside. As I tell my kids, dessert is not a right.”

Once again, a sane rational person would understand that Michelle Obama was simply explaining that tasty desserts should be earned by physical activities which reduce the ill effects of the sugary treats. Once again however, Sarah Palin has demonstrated that she is not a sane rational person.

CNN informs us that this was not not the first time Palin has taken a job at Mrs. Obama over her campaign to discourage fattening foods, especially from public schools. The former vice presidential nominee told conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham last month that “the first lady cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat.” Palin also hand-delivered cookies to a Pennsylvania school last month before delivering a speech there, saying: “Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.”

Sarah Palin is a buffoon. After all, what sane rational parent would object to healthy food being fed to their children at public school rather than unhealthy fat-laden foods? Would Palin also object to those school crossing guards on the grounds that, “Who should be deciding when my child crosses the street? Should it be government or should it be parents?” Probably.

In addition to the futility of her attacks against promoting a healthy diet for children, Palin has also been exposed as a hypocrite. Whatever happened to her edict that family members should be “off limits” in the world of political debate? Palin has violated her very own golden rule by attacking the President’s wife. After all, he is the elected official, not Michelle. What would her response be if Barack Obama criticized daughter Bristol’s teen abstinence campaign as “closing the door after the horse has fled the barn”? Would she play the victim card yet again? You betcha!

SARAH PALIN’S COMING TO TOWN

(sung to the Patti Page version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”)

Get your wallet out
Wink and blink your eyes
Holler and shout
At protesting guys
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Your town’s on her list
So you must play nice
And listen to Sarah P.’s advice
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

She’ll fleece you while your sleeping
Your money she will take
She’ll force you to purchase her book
Although the story’s fake

Oh, get your money out
So that you can buy
Can’t be without
Her book full of lies
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Sarah Palin’s coming to town

The crap she serves is heaping
The truth she does forsake
The writing is so bad it’s good
For a laugh you should partake

Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Oh, don’t make Sarah pout
Don’t make Sarah cry
Don’t go without
Her book full of lies
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Your town’s on her list
So you must play nice
And listen to Sarah P.’s advice
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

The crap she serves is heaping
The truth she does forsake
The writing is so bad it’s good
For a laugh you should partake

Oh, don’t make Sarah pout
Don’t make Sarah cry
Don’t go without
Her book full of lies
Sarah Palin’s coming to town

Sunday Mid-Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 63

BREAKING NEWS: The controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) military policy law which discriminated against gays was overwhelmingly repealed by the U.S. Senate yesterday. Eight Republicans joined the Democrats in the repeal effort. John McCain, not surprisingly, was not one of them. His words? “Today is a very sad day”. John McCaine has now officially become the Republican dinosaur that was the last man to defend sexual preference discrimination. Not an admirable title.

THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Biting The Hand That Feeds You” features the entire Republican Senate caucus that has filibustered the bill to fund health care for 9/11 first responders. The Republicans, you might remember, attempted to use 9/11 to their advantage whenever they could. For example, they justified the initiation of two wars on the event. They justified the civil rights limiting Patriot Attack on the event and they even justified the illegal use of torture on the event. Indeed, as Vice President Joe Biden said in 2008 of Rudy Giuliani, “There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence — a noun, a verb, and 9/11. There’s nothing else! There’s nothing else!” It is perplexing to all that the G.O.P. has now turned its back on the 9/11 responders after having been carried by them for years.

BREAKING NEWS: Remember way back in 2009 when PolitiFact.com deemed Sarah Palin’s “death panels” as the biggest lie of the year? Well, the entity has deemed the entire G.O.P.’s use of the term “a government takeover of health care” as 2010’s biggest lie of the year. Said Jonathan Oberlander, a professor of health policy at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill:  “The label ‘government takeover” has no basis in reality, but instead reflects a political dynamic where conservatives label any increase in government authority in health care as a ‘takeover.’ ” Those lying Republicans and their continued lying has been rewarded once again.

THIS JUST IN: In an act that Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said “brought shame to Capitol Hill” on Thursday, the House Republican leadership banded together at the last minute, and on purely specious grounds, to defeat a piece of legislation six years in the making aimed at preventing child marriage worldwide. Yes, you read that correctly, the “family values” G.O.P. refused to pass a bill to introduce the International Protecting Girls by Preventing Child Marriage Act, requiring the U.S. government to develop an integrated, strategic approach to combating child marriage by ensuring more effective us of existing resources. The bill also seeks to promote the educational, health, economic, social, and legal empowerment of women and girls. There you have it, another example of Republicans just saying, “NO!”.

BREAKING NEWS: ThinkProgress reported Thursday on a study conducted by World Public Opinion — a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland — which found that “greater exposure” to Fox News during the run-up to the mid-term elections this year “increased” daily viewers’ misinformation about specific issues. It is now official, the network really should be called “Faux News”.

THIS JUST IN: Paradox of the week? Minnesota’s Republican, moonbat-crazy House Rep. Michele Bachmann to serve on the …wait…wait…Intelligence Committee. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

BREAKING NEWS: Can you believe it? Yet another poll was released yesterday with more devastating news for Sarah Palin. Lynnrockets has already commented on three previous polls from this week which show Palin trailing Barack Obama in a head-to-head match-up for the presidency by as much as 22 points. Now, an ABC News/Washington Post poll released yesterday indicates that nearly six in ten Americans say they wouldn’t even consider voting for Palin if she runs. As the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours”.

THIS JUST IN: Only Five Shopping Days Left Until Christmas. We just had to say that because it seems everyone else does.

Joy To The World song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91brmsKeqcQ&feature=related

JOY TO THE WORLD (THE BOOK TOUR’S DONE)

(sung to the Anne Murray version of “Joy To The World”)

Joy to the world, the book tour’s done!
Palin has earned her bling;
Now she can fly off
On her new broom
And resume her nature thing,
And resume her nature thing,
And search Lake Lucille for her wedding ring

Joy to the world, no more jet planes
The snow-machine’s her toy
“Arctic Cat” duds,
And reindeer games
Palin is unemployed
Palin is unemployed
Sarah Palin is unemployed

Sarah’s a girl who is two-faced
She is our nation’s fool
No brains above
For her highness
Preaching hate, not love
Preaching hate, not love
She best beware the Lord above

Rush “To Judgment” Limbaugh Gets Tripped-Up By Caller

This is an excellent article from Examiner.com which illustrates how out of touch the racist, uneducated, drug-addicted Rush Limbaugh is.

On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh told one of his unemployed listeners why his jobless benefits are destroying the economy.  In the audio segment on the left, Limbaugh takes a call from “Jerome.”  Jerome states that he actually agrees with much of Limbaugh’s words, but that he has grown more sympathetic about the need for government assistance since becoming unemployed.  Even in the face of Jerome’s personal testimony, Limbaugh stands by his assertion that jobless benefits should not be extended.  Limbaugh argues that the jobless benefits actually retard economic growth and hurt people like Jerome by making them dependent.

The discussion between Jerome and Limbaugh represent a microcosm of the larger debate surrounding jobless benefits.  Conservatives like Limbaugh argue that jobless benefits keep people from actively pursuing a job.  Limbaugh also tries to say that businesses are taxed more because of an extension of jobless benefits, but any extension does not add any extra unemployment tax beyond that which would exist without an extension.  Jerome, even though he is Limbaugh fan, makes the liberal argument that jobs simply do not exist for people like him to find a job.  Labor Department studies seem to support Jerome’s argument as there are currently only one job for every five unemployed Americans.  Liberals also argue that jobless benefits do create jobs by creating demand in the free market.  People who receive jobless benefits generally spend the money, as opposed to the rich who often save money they may receive in the form of tax cuts.

What separates this interview from all the other jobless benefits debates is the personal nature of Jerome’s appeal.  Even assuming Limbaugh is right about the economic effects of jobless benefits, the millions of unemployed people, like Jerome, would have to wait years for the free market to help them.  Without jobless benefits, Jerome is left without any way to provide for the basic necessities of food and shelter while the free market slowly works to create a job for him.  Limbaugh’s argument may make logical sense to the Adam Smith philosophers of the world, but it ultimately falls on deaf ears to people like Jerome who are more concerned with the practicality of eating and staying warm at night.

Hark The Herald Angels Sing song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbdvo019mgM

HARK, THE DITTOHEADS DO SING

(sung to the Amy Grant version of “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”)

Hark, the ditto-heads do sing
“Glory to Limbaugh our King!”
On the left he is reviled
Cuz he behaves like a child
On those islands where he flies
With Viagra he does rise
His tired old act is just a game
Intended to bring him fame
Hark, the ditto-heads do sing
“Glory to Limbaugh our King!”

When Rush speaks he only lies
Unlike Beck he does not cry
Rush has an expansive girth
He is shaped like planet earth
Former wives have numbered three
He prefers his Oxy-C
Right-wing drivel he does sell
From his brainless empty shell
Hark, the ditto-heads do sing
“Glory to Limbaugh our King!”

(musical interlude)

He calls his show the E.I.B.
It’s all about me, me, me
Of his fame, he often sings
While taking credit for all things
Yet, by most he is ignored
Like a little mouse that roared
With nothing beneath his dome
He emits a rabid foam
Hark, the ditto-heads do sing
“Glory to Limbaugh our King!”

The People Have Spoken: Palin Should Sit Down And Shut Up!

Sarah Palin constantly reprimands President Obama and the Democratic Party for not “listening to the people”. She claims to have her finger on the pulse of our population’s political leanings. She claims to be in tune with everyday average Americans. Truth be told, Sarah Palin could not be more wrong.

In the last week, three separate polls have revealed that the American people do not want to be lead by Sarah Palin. Each one of these surveys indicates that in a hypothetical matchup for the Presidency, Barack Obama leads the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska by double digits. In fact, the most recent NBC-Wall Street Journal poll has Obama crushing Palin by 22 points (55% to 33%).

The lessons to be learned by Palin from these polls are that she obviously does not understand what the American people want in a President. Secondly, if she were to heed her own advice and listen to the American people, she would sit down, shut-up and remove herself from the political spectrum. The simple fact which is revealed time and time again by these polls is that Sarah Palin is persona non grata when it comes to leading our nation. The only question which remains unanswered, is when will the Queen of Quit wake-up and smell the coffee?

Palin Deemed “Unqualified” By “D.C. Elites” (And By Everybody Else Also, Too!)

With all of the non-stop media coverage of her every breath, you might get the impression that Sarah Palin is a legitimate contender for the office of the Presidency. Palin reinforces that perception with every political comment she utters on her un-reality television show and with every Facebook post and Twitter tweet she makes in response to every word or action of the Obama administration. Additionally, it is absolutely clear that Palin’s book-signing stop in Iowa and photo-op in Haiti were nothing but the political public relations stunts of an aspiring candidate. Problem is, virtually nobody feels that the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska is fit for the job.

The most recent Politico poll reveals some expected and quite unexpected facts. For instance, we learned that Palin’s dislike of Washington D.C. “elites” is mutual. CBS News reports that the poll indicates that well-to-do “Washingtonians are far less likely than the general American public to believe Sarah Palin is qualified to be president – and an overwhelming majority of them believe the former Alaska governor is actually a negative influence on U.S. politics as a whole.” Politico conducted its poll between December 3rd and 8th and defined “D.C. elites” as people who live in the D.C. metropolitan area, earn more than $ 75,000.00 per year, are involved somehow in politics or policy making and have one or more college degrees. (By the way, it is interesting to note that, but for living in D.C., Palin herself would qualify as an elite. Ouch, that’s gonna leave a mark on the Queen of Quit). Not surprisingly, only 11% of D.C. elites believe Palin is qualified to be President. Indeed, a whopping 86% of those folks thought Palin specifically unqualified to be President. Additionally, 79% of D.C. elites believe Sarah Palin is a “a negative influence in national politics”. These results were predictable in light of Palin’s much-ballyhooed “War on Elites”.

What was quite unexpected however, and quite damaging to Palin, was that the poll revealed that only 23% of “non-D.C. elites” believe she is qualified to be President. More damaging yet, is the revelation that 64% of “non-D.C. elites” think that Palin is specifically unqualified for that office. Furthermore, 50% of “non-D.C. elites” believe Palin is “a negative influence in national politics”.

So, what have we learned? The lesson is that “elites” believe that Sarah Palin is unqualified to be President and so doesn’t virtually everybody else also, too. Accordingly, the next time you watch Fox News and hear how everybody loves Palin, simply remind yourself that time and again, unbiased polls reveal exactly the opposite. Nobody really wants Sarah Palin in higher office. Do not let the Fox News echo-chamber lead you to believe otherwise.

SARAH THE RED STATE BIMBO

(sung to the theme of “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer”)

You know Paris and Lindsay and Charo and Britney
Nicole, Ivana and Jessica Simpson
But do you recall the most famous bimbo of all?

Sarah the Red State bimbo
Had a very strange hairstyle
And she had a way of speaking
That reminded one of Gomer Pyle

All of the other guv’nors
Used to laugh and call her names
Because her stupid glasses
Were all lens but had no frames

Then one balmy summer day
John McCain enquired
Sarah, you’re so “mavericky”
Won’t you please be my V.P.?

Then all the dumb red staters
Wondered who the hell was she
They never heard of Palin
The Alaskan hillbilly

Sarah the red state bimbo
Dressed like a flight attendant ‘ho
And she told lies so often
We could all watch her nose grow

All of the other bimbos
Used to laugh and call her names
They all knew Sarah Palin
Was a gal that had no brains

Then one balmy July day
They heard Sarah say,
“I won’t give up without a fight”,
“Unless I quit my job tonight”

Then how right-wingers loved her
As they shouted out with glee
“Sarah, the red state bimbo”
“you’ll go down in history”

Sarah Palin Agrees To Interview With Lamestream Media (sort of)

Day by day it becomes more evident that Sarah Palin will run for President of the United States in 2012. She has admitted that she is considering such a campaign but sometimes actions speak louder than words. This is especially true in reference to Palin who lies so frequently that her words have no credibility. She is however, acting like someone poised to run. Consider that she made sure that early caucus state Iowa was on her recent book signing for profit tour. How about her recent trip to Haiti in an attempt to enhance her foreign policy bona fides? And now we learn that she will give an interview to the hated “lamestream media”.

Yes, you read that correctly. Sarah Palin will be interviewed on “Good Morning America” this Friday by Robin Roberts. You knew that Palin would never agree to be questioned by co-anchor George Stephanopoulos. You might be wondering if this is the first such interview by Palin with a traditional television network since her disastrous and hilarious encounters with Charles Gibson and Katie Couric back in 2008. The answer is a resounding, “Yes”. Truth be told, Palin did appear with Barbara Walters on her “Most Fascinating” special and she also sat with Oprah, but those were mere fluff pieces with no hard-hitting questions. Now, “Good Morning America” is certainly no “Meet The Press” or “Face The Nation”, but it at least has the potential to stump Palin with a few unexpected questions unlike her staged Fox News appearances.

On its website, ABC says that, “Roberts will spend a day-in-the-life with the former governor and mother of five at her home in Wasilla”.  The network also says, “In a wide-ranging interview, Roberts will talk to Palin about her new book “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag,” plus all the major political news of the day, from taxes to health care to foreign policy.” Let’s see just how in depth the questions on taxes, health care and foreign policy will be and whether there will be any serious follow-up questions to Palin’s sure-to-be unintelligible answers.

RUDOLPH’S BEEN GUNNED DOWN BY SARAH PALIN

(sung to the Christmas song “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”)

Rudolph’s been gunned down by Sarah Palin
For her TV show on TLC
She took aim as she was dressed like Santa
She did it for the ratings, I believe

She was drunk on brandy-eggnogs
Like Rudolph’s nose, she did glow
Mixing booze with her medication
So like a dead fish “she went with the flow”

She went out that chilly morning
With her gun strapped to her back
Bullets as lethal as warheads
All the best equipment bought by SarahPAC

Rudolph’s been gunned down by Sarah Palin
For her TV show on TLC
She took aim as she was dressed like Santa
She did it for the ratings, I believe

Tea-Baggers are so proud of Sarah
Santa Claus can go to hell
With her they are having a ball
Making signs and shouting words that they can’t spell

Palin is one bad-ass grandma
A big fence surrounds her shack
And with Todd the dumb Boy-Wonder
They will fight-off “lamestram media” attacks

Rudolph’s been gunned down by Sarah Palin
For her TV show on TLC
She took aim as she was dressed like Santa
She did it for the ratings, I believe

On her show which airs on cable
Also on her Fox News gig
Sarah sports those trashy sandals
Just like putting bright red “lipstick on a pig”

Sarah lacks both friends and neighbors
She scares them with bullet shells
And she hunts without a license
Sarah Palin will do anything that sells

Rudolph’s been gunned down by Sarah Palin
For her TV show on TLC
She took aim as she was dressed like Santa
She did it for the ratings, I believe

(sing it Sarah!)

Rudolph’s been gunned down by Sarah Palin
For her TV show on TLC
She took aim as she was dressed like Santa
She did it for the ratings, I believe

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

Whitman Questions Palin’s Motives

The Hill reports that “New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R) said Sunday that Sarah Palin can’t win a nationwide run for the White House, and pointed to the fact that the former Alaska governor left mid-term as an impediment to her support.” Whitman appeared on CNN‘s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” and also said that although Palin could energize the base of the  Republican Party, “the base isn’t big enough. I don’t think she’ll win nationwide. You’ve got to start competing for the center. And so far, I haven’t seen a lot of outreach on the part of Sarah Palin for that.” Whitman is now the umpteenth Republican that apparently believes Palin is unqualified for the presidency.

To add insult to injury, the former two term Governor of New Jersey critically questioned the motivation of the ex-quitting, former half-term Governor of Alaska. Whitman broadsided Palin by saying,

“If she were the Republican candidate she’d have to show me a lot more than I’ve seen thus far as far as an understanding of the depth and the complexity of the issues that we face. I mean, she was a governor, but the fact that she left office before even completing her first term is — that’s just not an attitude that I think is necessarily in the best interest of your constituents — rather what’s in your best interests.”

Finally, someone has come out and called it like it is. In short Whitman said that Palin is selfish and more concerned with her own self-interests than those of her constituents. That seems perfectly obvious in light of Palin’s pursuits since quitting on the people of Alaska, but Whitman may be the first member of the GOP who has dared to say it publicly. The countdown now begins. How long will it be before Sarah Palin lashes back at Whitman via either Facebook or Twitter?

HERE COMES SARAH P.

(sung to the Christmas song “Here Comes Santa Claus”)

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
Basking in her fame
No education, a fool without peer
Could she be more lame?
Sarah’s singing words so stinging
You can tell she’s not bright
She keeps squawking that she’s the player
That dominates the far right

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
A “Calamity Jane”
A big windbag that’s filled with noise
Describes the Palin name
Simple language she does mangle
She never gets it quite right
So jump in bed and cover your head
Cuz Sarah P. comes tonight!

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
She’s an unemployed dame
She doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor
She’ll fleece you just the same
Sarah P. never tends her children
And she thinks that’s alright
As long as her kids are not queer
Who cares where they sleep tonight!

Here comes Sarah P., Here comes Sarah P.
Playing Sarah P. games
When she misspeaks and then gets called out
It’s the media she blames
Sean Hannity she will call
She thinks he can make it right
But let’s give thanks to the Lord above
She’s not on Fox News tonight!
