Slow News Day Musing

Question: What of interest is going on in the world of political news today? Answer: Nothing!

We never thought it would happen, but as of noon EST, nothing truly noteworthy or parody-worthy is happening. Could it be that everyone is simply waiting to hear what President Barack Obama will say in his State of the Union Address this evening? Are all of the members of Congress simply too nervous about which member of the opposing party they might be seated next to at the speech? Has every newsworthy person suddenly fallen into hibernation? As legendary Green Bay Packer coach Vince Lombardi once famously shouted from the sideline, “What the hell is going on out here!” What you don’t remember that? Well, today is a slow day, so here it is:

OK then, now that we have our obligatory Green Bay Packer reference out of the way for another day, we can move on. Speaking of move-on, even MoveOn.org is quiet today. The progressive group’s only interest today is if the President will mention Social Security in his SOTUA. Heck, even Media Matters and Newshounds were forced to comment on the same non-story. You know, the one where Fox News hosts state emphatically that their network never compares those on the left to Nazi’s, and then the progressive blogosphere provides about one hundred examples of Fox hosts and guests doing exactly that. This lack of news makes one wonder if even Sarah Palin has elected to assist the “lamestream” media with their vow of a Palin-free February by starting to do nothing noteworthy as early as late January. The only thing the usually controversial Queen of Quit has done in the last 48 hours was to appear at a fundraiser for a christian school in Lubbock, Texas which was, of course, closed to the press. Speaking of Lubbock, Texas, did you folks know that that is where Buddy Holly was from? Just who was Buddy Holly you might ask?

Alright then, now we have our obligatory Buddy Holly reference also out of the way. Do any of you folks have any buddies that might be of interest? If so, please let us know because we are bored. Does it show? Speaking of shows, does anybody else out there other than NSWFM like the HBO show “MadMen”? We do. Here is a clip:

A lot like a law firm I formerly worked with. Oh well, here is a Sarah Palin song parody to take us through to tonight’s big speech.

FOUR EYED GIRL

(sung to the Van Morrison song “Brown Eyed Girl”)

Hey where did she go,
Days when the snow came
Way down in Juneau,
Playin’ the blame game,
Winkin’ and a blinkin’, hey, hey
Oil should be a pumpin’
With those rimless glasses on and
Sarah campaign stumpin’, oh,
My four eyed girl,
You, my four eyed girl.

Whatever happened
To Wooten and Stambaugh
Did they not toe the line
Forcing Sarah to let them go
Standing in her office laughing,
Hiring her old friends from school
Fibbin’ and a lying
Playin’ citizens as fools, were you
My four eyed girl
You, my four eyed girl

Do you remember when she used to sing…
Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya
Just like that
Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya
La Ti Da

She has lots of legal bills
And they make her whine and moan
She’ll be turnin’ to booze and pills
Unless she gets a loan
Someone’s gotta help her, Lord
Could it be the good Ol’ SarahPac
Defense fund could save her ass
And fill her wallet too, oh you
My four eyed girl
You, my four eyed girl

Do you remember when she used to sing…
Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya
Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya Betcha, Ya
Sha la la la la la la la la la…
