Sarah Palin – Money For Nothing

PalinMissWasilla

Just what exactly will former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin do with her new found riches? First, she has between $ 400,000.00 and $ 600,000.00 in the SarahPac political action committee coffers. The biggest surprise there is that her supporters donated approximately $ 200,000.00 to the PAC after she quit the governorship and without stating that she would seek election to another office. Either her supporters know something that we do not, or they like giving their money away to useless quitters.

Another source of new found income for Caribou Barbie is the autobiography that she plans to release next year. Reportedly, she will earn upwards of seven figures for the book. Like the rest of us however, she must not have much faith in that University of Idaho journalism degree, because she has retained a ghostwriter to pen the tome. Probably a good idea when one considers that she is unintelligible when she speaks.

Additionally, it has been rumored that Sarah Barracuda has been offered numerous lucrative media opportunities in either television or radio. Yikes! It must be assumed that the interested television networks are The Comedy Channel and The Cartoon Network. Alternatively, Palin and her family could star in some sort of reality series like The Osbournes. On second thought, been there, done that. Her wacky tenure as governor and as a candidate for Vice President already was a surrealistic television reality show. Thank the Lord that it has not been renewed for a second season.  The radio station will most probably be some sort of foreign language format.

Today’s song parody was inspired by a frequent comment submitter on the wildly popular Alaska based The Mudflats blog. http://www.themudflats.net/ She is known as crystalwolf aka caligirl and she’s a hoot.

MONEY FOR NOTHING

(sung to the Dire Straits song “Money For Nothing”)

I want my, I want my Fox TV

Now look at that Bozo, that’s the way you do it
Fouling up interviews on the TV
Brain ain’t working, that’s the way she blew it
Money for nothing and her clothes for free

Palin ain’t working, told the voters, “screw it”
While she gobbled up every crumb
Maybe get Todd’s sister a break from the clinker

Baby she’s a grifter, she’s pond scum

She belongs in a secret witch coven
Draped in her gaudy finery
She was exposed much sooner than later
By the pros on M-S-N-B-C

Palin’s a starlet with her beehive and her makeup
Yeah buddy, that’s her own hair
That Sarah Palin shoots wolves from her airplane
She even wants to kill the polar bears

She thinks a guv’nor’s pay ain’t worth nothin’
She can’t write despite her degree
We all know she’s a lousy debater
She’ll live off the SarahPac money

(musical interlude)

She thinks a guv’nor’s pay ain’t worth nothin’
She can’t write despite her degree
We all know she’s a lousy debater
She’ll live off the SarahPac money

She’s a rat. She’s a rat.

Her temperament is strangely bizarre
She gives jobs to her high school chums
Look at that Sarah, she can’t stop winkin’ at the camera
Man, that girl is dumb
She’s a nightmare, that cat. Whining annoys us.
Palin thinks the Congo borders Tennessee
Her brain ain’t workin’, that’s the way she blew it
Gets her money for nothin’, gets her clothes for free

She couldn’t take the pushin’ and shovin’
Another weakling G.O.P.
She’s a pre-marital fornicator
Preaching all about abstinency

Listen here
Her brain ain’t workin’, that’s the way she blew it
Her next employer will be Fox TV
She’ll be tongue tied, she’ll bite her tongue and chew it
Money for nothing just like Hannity
Money for nothing like O’Reilly

Killed a turkey for stuffin’ right on the TV
Huffin’ and puffin’ constantly
Look at that. Look at that.
They’ll pay money for nothing on that Fox TV
(I want my, I want my, I want my Fox TV)
Money for nothing just like Hannity
Sleazy, sleazy

She ain’t working.

Sarah Palin The Birthday-Girl Wants Your Money

It was a day that will live in infamy. On this very same date exactly 47 years ago in the small town of Standpoint, Idaho, a menace was born.  Charles R. “Chuck” Heath and his wife Sally were cursed with a third child who they named Sarah. From day one the Sarah thing brought ridicule upon the Heaths, and the villagers of Standpoint drove them out of Idaho on a potato truck after only a few months. In no uncertain terms the Heaths were told to take the Sarah thing out of the Lower 48 and to never return.

The disgraced family migrated to the town of Skagway, Alaska where they hid the Sarah thing for almost five years before she was discovered by a dung-heap digger and the family was once again banished by the locals. In the dead of night they surreptitiously made their way to the town of Eagle River, Alaska. For three years they deceived the town folk there into believing that the Sarah thing was some sort of exotic family pet but when the local veterinarian refused to neuter her on the grounds that he did not recognize her species, the gig was up. The Heaths were driven from yet another town and wandered aimlessly until they stumbled upon the lazy hamlet of Wasiila. Chuck quickly deduced that Wasilla was the methamphetamine capital of Alaska and that the dazed and confused citizens were unlikely to pay any attention to their hated spawn. He was correct. Nobody noticed the new addle-minded resident until she was mistakenly elected Mayor on April Fools day in 1996 at the age of 32 (that is 224 in dog years).

Nothing of note happened to the Sarah thing after that other than her election as Governor of Alaska and her nomination as the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States. Luckily for all involved, she was clobbered in the national election and shortly thereafter she quit the position of Governor after having served only half a term. The world was saved. The Sarah thing would surely fade into obscurity now that she had officially been deemed a quitting loser.

Not so fast! As it turned out, the reports of the Sarah thing’s demise had been greatly exaggerated as the result of the emergence of the villainous Tea Party. That group of under-educated, spelling-challenged, racist, gun-toting, Bible-thumpers found one of their own of the opposite sex to coronate as queen. She even shared their habit of dressing up in funny clothes from a different era. This was a virtual match made in heaven er, hell.

The Sarah Palin thing was revived just like the Frankenstein monster in so many of those movie sequels. She “refudiated’ her critics and commenced a new career; begging for money and selling stuff to her brain-washed fans. She even started her own political action committee so that her supporters could easily finance her lavish lifestyle on a 24/7 basis.

And this brings us full circle to today. Sarah Palin’s birthday. It is impolite to personally ask for cash as a birthday present, but mere social impropriety is no impediment to Sarah Palin. To achieve her goal of grabbing even more money from her Tea-Bagging supporters she has utilized SarahPAC. Palin’s PAC sent a letter to supporters pleading for cash donations in honor of her birthday. It reads, “help me plan a special surprise for Governor Sarah Palin in honor of her birthday on Friday by giving a gift to SarahPAC today.” In an attempt to once again compare herself to Ronald Reagan, the money solicitation contiues with, “Just like Ronald Reagan before her, Governor Palin is despised by the Left because she freely admits her faith in God, is unabashedly proud of America, and fights to limit the long arm of the federal government when it comes to our freedoms and our families.”

This blatant cash-grab is clearly another one of Sarah Palin’s “WTF” moments.

Sarah Palin: Show Me The Money

As always, third place is for losers. Unfortunately for Sarah Palin, that is exactly the position she is in when compared to other potential G.O.P. presidential contenders in terms of fund raising. The former ex-quitting governor of Alaska raised $2.1 million ($1.4 million in the last 6 months) through her political action committee (SarahPAC) in 2009. A good number but Mitt Romney, the former ex-quitting governor of Massachusetts raised $2.9 million and Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty raised $1.3 million in just three months (a projected 6 month total of over $2.6 million). Pawlenty’s take is particularly startling because he has not even quit his job yet.

In typical non-specific Palin-speak, SarahPAC spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said:

We are thrilled. Common sense Americans know the direction we need to take this country and that Sarah Palin will be instrumental in taking us there this year. We look forward to the journey ahead!

We are thrilled with scamming money from undereducated dolts and we look forward to conning them into giving more this year.
The transparency of Sarah Palin’s self profit motive is astounding. Think about this for a moment. Every time we hear a news story about Palin since she quit on the people of Alaska, it involves the mention of money.The unjustified money she collected from Alaskan taxpayers for her children’s travel and lodging. The money her fictional novel generated. The money she charged her fans for photos at book signings. The money that Fox News will pay her as a guest host. The money she will charge for speaking at the National Tea Bagging Convention. The money she and Bristol are paid for tabloid magazine stories. Honestly, what is next?

Life’s Been Good song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXWvKDSwvls

LIFE’S BEEN GOOD

(sung to the Joe Walsh song “Life’s Been Good”)

She built a mansion, who knows the price?
It clashes with all the snow and the ice
But she loves hotels and room service calls
She has SarahPAC pay for it all

That Palin’s crazy but she has a good time
She has nothing to do but scheme for her next dime
Life’s been good to she so far

Her snow-machine does 125
But if it crashes she won’t survive
We never see her eldest son, Track
She seems to care more for “Joe Sixpack”

She’s signing books and her fans they can’t wait
To read about her politics of hate
So she takes all the money from her fans one and all
Those fools line-up and wait in the hall

Sarah is insane and she has not a clue
She is a fool (a fool)
She has no brains because of safety schools
Life’s been good to she so far

(long but fun musical interlude)

Biden used Palin to mop up the floor
He and Obama showed Sarah the door
Shortly thereafter, she turned on McCain
Claimed that it was his fault though she was to blame

That Palin’s crazy but she has a good time
We say, “Oh, yeah” (oh, yeah)
Sarah’s “death panels’ were the year’s biggest lie
Life’s been good to she so far

Yeah, yeah, yeah

(long musical fade to end)

Sarah Palin Takes The Money And Runs

Palin gives the kiss-off to book buying fans in Indiana.

Remember during the 2008 Presidential campaign when John McCain and Sarah Palin rolled out those commercials wherein they compared Democratic Party nominee Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton in an attempt to characterize the future president as a celebrity lightweight? Well, as Reverend Wright once said, “the chickens have come home to roost.” You see, Sarah Palin has now evolved into just the type of air-headed celebrity diva that she at one time criticized. Exhibit 1; she has no meaningful employment (like Paris Hilton) and is famous in the eyes of her fans for nothing other than her personality and for being famous. Exhibit 2; her personal and family life is a mess (like Britney Spears) filled with a single mother teen daughter, an unemployed husband, a criminal sister-in-law, an estranged brother-in-law and an estranged once and future son-in-law that also happens to be the father of her grandson. Exhibit 3; Sarah Palin is now on a rock star like national book-tour to promote a book that she could not even write on her own.

The book-tour itself has not gone without the type of controversy that so often surrounds celebrity divas. Take for example yesterday’s appearance at Fort Bragg where Palin was ordered by Army command to essentially “sit down and shut up”. Although the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska so often drapes herself in the flag and presents herself as an icon of and the primary supporter of our military forces, the military does not return the favor. The brass at Fort Bragg was not about to allow Palin to publicly attack their Commander in Chief, Barack Obama by means of politically grandstanding before the troops during her book signing. Consequently, she was restricted from giving a speech, taking photos and personalizing notes in the books that she signed. Also too, just thinking aloud here, but why did the patriotic, physically fit basketball player, beauty contestant never demonstrate her unfaltering support for the military by enlisting therein?

Even more entertaining however was the fiasco known as the Noblesville, Indiana Borders Books appearance. Throngs of Palin supporters endured the chillingly cold and wet weather waiting in line for up to 9 hours to buy her book and obtain a wristband which would entitle them to meet Palin and get their book signed in person on November 19th. That of course was of no concern to Sarah Palin who simply up and quit signing (sound familiar?)  in the middle of the event and promptly boarded her luxury coach to depart for places unknown. It was of no consequence to Sarah Palin that these people paid good money for her book (which enriched the former governor), skipped work (which decreased their fortunes) and suffered for hours waiting outside in the elements. Needless to say, many of those people were outraged by Palin’s callous action and vowed to return their books and cease their support for the former vice presidential candidate. Thereafter in a feeble attempt to quell the backlash against her, Palin issued this statement via Facebook,

I’ve been told that yesterday there were supporters in Noblesville who stood in long lines for hours in the cold and rain, and the book signing event ended without a chance to say hello to everyone who showed up. I am so sorry. We are working on a solution for those who were left behind. I apologize.

The best part of the half apology is that, as usual, Palin accepts no personal blame. By saying, “I’ve been told” that the terrible thing happened, Palin implies that she personally knew nothing about it and therefore cannot be held personally responsible. Problem is, before her bus was able to leave the parking lot, it was swarmed by a mass of protesting former fans. Could Palin not see them out the windows of the bus? Could she not hear them? The answer is that she could both see and hear them and that her apology simply adds to her growing list of lies. Please watch the following clip from MSNBC‘s Countdown With Keith Olbermann for an overview of the book signing disaster:

Wait, oh yes wait a minute Mrs. Palin
Wait, wait Mrs. Palin

Mrs. Palin can’t you see?
We camped out overnight here in Indy?
We’ve been waiting such a long time
We froze our asses off in line

You must have something to say
Why did you blow us off today?
Please Sarah Palin honestly,
Why did you treat us so egregiously?
We’ve been standing here waiting Mrs. Palin
So patiently
Why not some word, or even better
Will you just sign this damn book for me?

Please Mrs. Palin can’t you see?
We’ve paid our SarahPAC membership fees
You left us waiting in this line
“Stick your book where the sun don’t shine!”

We won’t forget you passed us by
You can kiss our support bye-bye
You didn’t stop to make us feel better
No, you left us out in the bad weather

Sarah Palin can’t you see?
We’re gonna hang out your dirty laundry
It will hang out there on that line
You stood us up for the very last time!

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Now you will see, you’re our enemy

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute
Mrs. Palin
We all will remember, 19th of November!!!

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute

Top Tea-Bagger Dumps On Sarah Palin

CNN Opinion published an article yesterday afternoon which was authored by a guy named Phillip Dennis. You probably never heard of him but he is the founder of the Dallas Tea Party and is also the Texas state coordinator of Tea Party Patriots and an adviser to the National Tea Party Coalition. The interesting part of the article however is that this primo Tea-Bagger realizes that Sarah Palin uses the movement for personal profit rather than for unity of cause. Dennis writes,

Like anything else that grows into a national phenomenon, the Tea Party has seen some enter the scene with ulterior motives. Generally, the motives center around money. Some have slapped the Tea Party name on their tired political action committees. Others are organizations with political interests and agendas, but foremost are the money-gathering operations.

Others are big-name politicians or media personalities such as Sarah Palin, who charge up to $100,000 a speech before packing up and taking their show to another city. They leave little lasting substance, and their words are quickly forgotten.

Technically, these tea turf groups and personalities are a part of the movement but most likely would not be if big dollars were not involved.

The Tea-Baggers are not as stupid as we initially thought. At least they have caught on to the fact that Sarah Palin, the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska is simply taking advantage of them.

Want More Jobs Outsourced Overseas? Romney’s Your Man!

Mitt Romney Waves Goodbye To American Jobs

Last week The Washington Post published an article about Mitt Romney’s years at Bain Capital. In short, it destroyed Romney’s oft repeated claim that, as the result of his private sector business experience, he knows how to create jobs. Indeed, the article shows that while running Bain Capital, Mitt Romney invested in companies which contributed to a vast outsourcing of American jobs to foreign countries.

The article spotlighted the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing of six companies and reported that Computer Software, Inc. outsourced its call centers to Europe and Japan, Stream International Inc. shipped its call center operations to Asia and Europe, Modus Media Inc. outsourced jobs to Australia, Europe and Asia, GT Bicycle Inc. shifted manufacturing to China, SMTC moved jobs to Ireland and Mexico and McKinsey Global Institute reported that it shifted about $20 billion of its information technology work out of the United States.

This revelation of the extent to which Romney’s Bain Capital contributed to American job losses is very bad news for the campaign which states that his private sector experience proves he knows how to create jobs in America (or as Romney says, “Amercia“). On the contrary, it reinforces the undeniable fact that during his only stint as an elected executive in the public sector (as Governor of Massachusetts) his state was ranked a lowly 47th in the nation in job creation during an economic boom.

The Romney campaign is now in “full damage control” mode. It unsuccessfully attempted to counter the job outsourcing news last weekend. First, spokesperson Andrea Saul said, “This is a fundamentally flawed story that does not differentiate between domestic outsourcing versus offshoring nor versus work done overseas to support U.S. exports.  Mitt Romney spent 25 years in the real world economy so he understands why jobs come and they go.” The campaign also sent spokesperson Ed Gillespie out to the Sunday morning talking head shows. While appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union”, Gillespie referred to The Washington Post articles as “a breathless headline over a baseless story.” Gillespie also unsuccessfully attempted to imply that Bain Capital did not “offshore” jobs overseas, but “outsourced” them to other places within the United States. He said, “I think the reporter confused the notion of outsourcing — which happens all the time when you don’t do all of your services in house, you go outside — to moving jobs offshore.”

Neither Saul nor Gillespie however, explicitly stated that Bain Capital did not control or invest in companies which  sent jobs overseas. Indeed, The Waashington Post article specifically states that the 6 companies which were the subject of the article shipped jobs to China, Australia, Ireland and India.

Looks like the Romney campaign still has a lot of “splainin’ to do!

The Difference Between Democrats And Republicans

As we have said here before, sometimes you simply cannot say something better than somebody else already has. Today is one of those days when we demonstrate what that means. The wonderful folks over at AddictingInfo.org recently posted a column titled, “Fifteen Differences Between Democrats And Republicans”. It is spot, so please enjoy. when you finish, please head on over to the website for more great stuff!

Republicans fear that the government has too much control over corporations. Democrats fear that corporations have too much control over our government.

Democrats believe it benefits all of us to help the weakest and the poorest among us. Republicans believe it benefits all of us to help the wealthiest and most powerful among us.

Republicans believe large corporations will always do what is best for the American people if the government stays out of the way. Democrats believe large corporations would disembowel you and sell your organs to the highest bidder if the government didn’t stop them.

Democrats believe everyone is entitled to health care regardless of their ability to pay. Republicans believe everyone is entitled to jack squat if they can’t pay for health care.

Democrats believe too much of our money goes to crooked corporate executives who take government subsidies and pay themselves $80 million salaries. Republicans believe too much of our money goes to teachers who make $30,000 a year.

Democrats believe anything that helps the American people during a recession or a time of crisis is the true essence of patriotism. Republicans believe anything that helps the American people during a recession or a time of crisis is the true essence of communism.

Democrats believe that we need to set high standards for clean air and drinking water. Republicans believe that standards for clean air and water are burdensome over-regulation.

Democrats believe the President and Congress need to work together to create jobs during a weak economy. Republicans believe that Congress should do nothing to create jobs and then blame the President.

Democrats believe that corporate polluters should be made to pay for the cleanup of their pollution. Republicans believe that making corporations clean up their pollution is burdensome over-regulation.

Democrats believe our health care system exists solely for the purpose of making people healthy. Republicans believe our health care system exists solely for the purpose of making a healthy profit.

Democrats believe Congress should be of the people, by the people and for the people. Republicans believe corporations are the people.

Democrats believe that corporations have too much influence over Congress due to their lobbyists and huge campaign contributions. Republicans believe the middle class has too much influence over Congress due to their voting and paying taxes.

Democrats believe we need to protect victims of corporate negligence by allowing Americans to file lawsuits against corporations. Republicans believe we need to protect large corporations from lawsuits by Americans who’ve been victimized by them.

Democrats believe that the rich should be taxed more than the poor and middle class. Republicans believe that the rich should be allowed to keep all their wealth, except for the millions in campaign contributions they give to politicians.

Democrats believe that too much money in politics produces corruption and destroys the American way of life. Republicans believe that money and corruption in politics are the American way of life.

Mitt(wit) Romney Is One Of The Beautiful People

Think about this for a moment. Could Mitt Romney possibly do any better a job at convincing the American people that he is a filthy rich, privileged, out of touch, heartless and deceiving candidate for President of the United States?

Setting aside for the moment his countless flip-flops on policy issues and the fact that he is now Donald Trump’s BFF, let’s take a close look at some of the facts about this Republican and also at some of the things that he has actually said.

Mitt Romney is one of the richest men in the country. Despite the fact that he has wealth to spare however, as the result of an unfair tax code, he pays less than 14% tax on his earnings. Indeed while earning $ 21.7 million in 2010, Romney paid a lower tax rate than a person earning only $ 50,000 in wages per year. To make matters worse, Romney’s proposed tax overhaul would maintain this preposterously low rate for the wealthy while penalizing people earning $ 40,000 or less per year.

Romney is so out of touch with human emotion that he once strapped the family dog to the roof of his car for a 12 hour drive from Boston to Ontario, Canada. During the trip, The Boston Globe reported, Romney’s oldest son, Tagg, looked around through the rear window and yelled, “Dad — gross!” A brown liquid was dripping down the back window — diarrhea from an animal that just might have been caused by the stress of being inside a cage for 12 hours on top of a car going 60 mph. The Globe described what Romney then did as follows: “As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway. It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management.” How is that for loving treatment of a beloved family pet?

Let’s now take a look at some of the things Mitt Romney has said:

“I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.” (Romney’s campaign later admitted that they didn’t march on the same day, or in the same city;

“I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life.” (Romney’s campaign later said he’d been hunting twice, once when he was 15, and once in 2006 at a Republican fundraiser;

“Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are.”;

“I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.”;

“I should tell my story. I’m also unemployed.” —Mitt Romney, speaking in 2011 to unemployed people in Florida. Romney’s net worth is over $200 million;

“There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip” –Mitt Romney, attempting to identify with the problems of average folk (January 2012);

“I’m running for office for Pete’s sake, we can’t have illegals” –Mitt Romney, recalling his reaction when he learned that there were illegal aliens working the ground on his property, employed by a firm that he subsequently fired (October 2011);

“[Obama’s stimulus program is] one of the biggest peacetime spending binges in American history.” —Mitt Romney in April 2011, while U.S. troops were fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and involved in airstrikes against Libya;

“I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that’s the America millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I love.” –Mitt Romney (January 2012); and most recently

“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.” —Mitt Romney (January 2012).

Face it folks, Mitt Romney is not only a filthy rich, privileged, out of touch, heartless and deceiving candidate for President of the United States, he is also unquestionably unfit to be the President of the United States.

Baby, You’re A Rich Man” song link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8ZnI-ZO8Eo

ROMNEY, YOU’RE A RICH MAN

 (sung to the Beatles song “Baby, You’re A Rich Man”)

How does Mitt feel to be
One of the “beautiful people”?
Now we all know just who you are
Privileged and G.O.P.
And now you are Donald Trump’s star
That’s some stupidity

How does Mitt feel to be
One of the “beautiful people”?
So striking with perfect hair
Rolling in lots of dough
Mitt loves tax codes that are not fair
His tax rate is so low

Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man too

Mitt keeps all your money in an offshore bank, that’s what you do
What a thing to do

Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man too

How does Mitt feel to be
One of the “beautiful people”?
Inheritance from Daddy
Nothing to do with gays
Layoffs with jobs sent overseas
Happy it is that way

Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man too

Mitt keeps all his money in an offshore bank, that’s what you do
What a thing to do

Romney
Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man
Romney, you’re a rich man too…

Tea Party Express Embarks On 5th Tragical Misery Tour

Beware!!!

A busload of crazy may be coming to a town near you in the next few weeks. That’s right folks, the Tea Party Express has kicked-off a nationwide bus tour ala Sarah Palin’s faux family vacation. Its first stop was Napa, California and it will make 29 more stops before concluding on September 10th in Tampa, Florida just in time for the CNN/Tea Party Express GOP presidential debate.

The Tea Party Express likes to bill itself as a grassroots movement of like minded conservatives. That is a fallacy. The organization is not in any way a grassroots movement, unless you prefer your grass to be rooted in the gleaming offices of a well established political consulting firm which also just happens to siphon off most of the Tea Party group’s donations. You see, the Tea Party Express is a tool created by the GOP political consulting firm known as Russo, Marsh and Rogers. According to Federal Election Commission filings, more than 75% of the money spent by the Tea Party Express, about $1 million out of $1.3 million spent, went to Russo, Marsh or King Media Group, which has close ties to Russo. How’s that for capitalism at work? The misinformed Tea Baggers have apparently been duped once again into supporting something that is contrary to their stated intentions.

At their first stop in Napa on Saturday, the wacky Tea Partiers (many dressed-up like George Washington with tea bags hanging from their tri-corner hats and 1 guy appropriately wearing a dunce cap) were met by several dozen protesters. CNN reports that the protesters were loudly chanting “Hey ho, hey ho, the Tea Party has got to go!” and “Tax the rich!”. One protest sign read, “The Tea Party- Trashing America and the Economy.” There was also a giant inflated rat peering over the fence at the Tea Baggers.

The next stop was Elko, Nevada but it was evident that the tour was already losing steam. The Elko Daily Free Press reported that only about 75 supporters cared enough to show up. That was probably the result of Nevadans hoping to avoid another embarrassing singing performance by former losing Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle. Angle, you may recall, was a darling of Sarah Palin who ran for a Nevada U.S. Senate seat and lost last year. She advocated the complete privatization of Medicare and Social Security and her job creation plan was summed up as follows: “As your U.S. Senator, I’m not in the business of creating jobs”. Like most self-interested Tea-Baggers, Angle also attempted to hawk her book on her victims, oops, I meant audience. Watch video of Angle singing as well as the other disturbing clips which the San Francisco Chronicle has posted:  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/nov05election/detail?entry_id=96305

Yikes!

But really, what did we expect from the Tea Baggers? They are the most confused and misinformed group of people since the “birthers”. Oh wait a second, they were the “birthers”. In any event, let’s just take a look at their positions on some of the issues of the day. All through 2010 and prior to the passage of the new health care law, they ran around shouting and carrying misspelled signs with the message “Leave My Medicare Alone” and “Keep Govt. Out Of My Medicare”. Nevermind the fact that the health care law had nothing to do with Medicare or that the program is 100% government run. They then proceeded to support a number of Tea Party candidates in the mid-term elections who, once elected, immediately began trying to pass laws which would eliminate the Medicare program.

The Tea Partiers are also known for protesting higher taxes. The problem is, taxes are at their lowest level in over 60 years. Furthermore, President Obama has not not increased one single tax since being elected. Instead, he has actually cut taxes for 95% of working/ middle class Americans by means of his 2010 payroll tax decrease. They should be on their knees thanking President Obama and opposing the elected Tea Party members who are presently refusing to extend those tax cuts.

Anyway, over the next few weeks we are guaranteed a busload of laughs every time the Tea Party Express bus tour makes a stop.

All Aboard! Next stop, Cheyenne, WY followed by Lincoln and Omaha, NE and then Sioux City and Des Moines, IA.

It’s My Party song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIsnIt1p978

IT’S OUR TEA PARTY

(sung to the Lesley Gore song “It’s My Party”)

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

Nobody knows just what planet we’re from
We have all lost our minds
But we will follow the plan
And misspell all of our signs

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you looked like we do

Playin’ the race card because we’re all white
Swastikas define our style
When Glenn Beck’s eyes get teary
That just makes all of us smile

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

(misspelled sign making break)

Our Sarah Palin behaves just like a whore
She’s a mean ding-a-ling
She tells us nothing but lies
We believe everything

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you looked like we do

Oh, It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

Oh, It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to…

Seccessionist Perry May Soon Replace Philanderer Gingrich

Philanderer and Secessionist

Lynnrockets is fully aware of the Palin email dump recently performed by the state of Alaska, but will refrain from commenting thereon until they have been fully reviewed. Who knows, there may be nothing “new” to review. We must admit however that a few comments like the one which spoke about verifying baby Trig’s birth date and the withheld email having to deal with “child custody” do peak our curiosity.

Until then, we would like to comment a bit more on the topic of the Gingrich campaign’s mass staff resignation and its possible ramifications.

As you know, earlier this week Newt Gingrich’s hopes for the Republican nomination for president suffered a severe and potentially mortal blow. As many as 16 members of his top echelon of campaign staff quit abruptly because they claimed that their vision of the campaign differed significantly from Gingrich’s vision. The aides also claimed that Gingrich’s present (and 3rd) wife contributed to their decision by injecting herself too forcefully in the campaign. Indeed, the “final straw” was said to be his wife’s insistence that Gingrich take a Mediterranean cruise last week rather than to focus on the campaign.

The most devastating defections were campaign manager Rob Johnson and Dave Carney. You see, Johnson and Carney formally worked for Texas Governor Rick Perry. Many now speculate that Perry may enter the GOP presidential race and his two buddies will now be available to commandeer his campaign. Consequently, Rick Perry may become a viable candidate just as Gingrich fades away like Donald Trump. Republicans however, should not get too excited, as there are many reasons why Perry will face serious scrutiny from mainstream voters.

ThinkProgress.org has provided a list of the top 10 things that Rick Perry does not want voters to know. They are:

(1) PERRY ALLOWED THE EXECUTION OF A LIKELY INNOCENT MAN, THEN IMPEDED AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE MATTER;

(2) PERRY WANTS TO REPEAL THE 16th AND 17th AMENDMENTS, ENDING DIRECT ELECTION OF U.S. SENATORS AND THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX;

(3) PERRY PROPOSED LETTING STATES DROP OUT OF SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICAID;

(4) TEXAS IS THE COUNTRY’S BIGGEST POLLUTER, BUT PERRY SUED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR DISAPPROVING OF THE STATE’S AIR QUALITY STANDARDS;

(5) PERRY DESIGNATED AS “EMERGENCY LEGISLATION” A BILL REQUIRING ALL WOMEN SEEKING ABORTIONS TO HAVE SONOGRAMS FIRST;

(6) PERRY GUTTED CHILDCARE SERVICES EVEN AS TEXAS CHILDHOOD POVERTY HIT 25 PERCENT;

(7) PERRY WAS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF TEXAS’S ANTI-SODOMY LAWS;

(8) PERRY IS A STIMULUS HYPOCRITE WHO LOUDLY CRITICIZED FEDERAL RECOVERY MONEY BUT USED IT TO BALANCE HIS STATE’S BUDGET;

(9) PERRY SAID THAT TEXAS MIGHT HAVE TO SECEDE FROM THE UNITED STATES; and

(10) DESPITE HAVING THE WORST UNINSURED RATE IN THE COUNTRY, PERRY CLAIMS THAT TEXAS HAS “THE BEST HEALTH CARE IN THE COUNTRY”.

All their shirts are brown

Scandal is their norm

And politics of hate

Members of John Birch
Some won’t admit they’re gay
But when they get down on their knees
(Get down on their knees)
That’s when they like to play
(When they like to play)
These slimy creatures should be told
(Creatures should be told)
Membership’s gone away
(Members gone away)
Conservative dreamin’
(Conservative dreamin’)
Has led them all astray

(hypocrisy break)

Trump he was a clown
(Trump he was a clown)
Gingrich had his day
(Gingrich had his day)
Palin cannot talk

She’s no Tina Fey

Somebody should tell her

To just go away
(To just go away)
Conservative dreamin’

Has lost all its cache´
(Conservative dreamin’)
Drives voters all away
