Barracuda Blindsided By Ballot Box Backlash

" We lost by just this much"

The Month of August has not been kind to Sarah Palin. The former half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska has gone 0 for 5 this month with regard to candidates that she has endorsed for election. This week both of the candidates Palin backed in Tuesday’s primaries lost their bids. In Washington State, Palin had backed Tea Party activist Clint Didier in his bid for the Senate over businessman Dino Rossi, the favorite of national Republicans. Didier lost. In Wyoming, Palin endorsed Rita Meyer, whom she christened as one of her “Mama grizzlies” for governor. Meyer also lost.

Of Didier, Palin said the Tea Party favorite “inspired” her and that he is a “patriot running for U.S. Senate to serve his state & our country for all the right reasons”. As for Meyer, she said, “voters know that Rita has a unique blend of steel magnolia and mama grizzly”. In each case however, the voters made it clear that they disagree with Sarah Barracuda.

In addition to Tuesday’s losses, there was the even bigger disappointment last Tuesday, when Palin’s hand-picked gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Karen Handel, lost to fellow Republican Nathan Deal. Palin had exerted all of her efforts in that race even appearing with Handel at a campaign rally just hours before the vote. All to no avail however, as Handel was handily defeated. Also in August, Palin-backed candidates Rep. Todd Tiahrt, who was vying for Senate in Kansas – and Tennessee congressional candidate CeCe Heil lost their elections.

The bloom is now officially off of Sarah Palin’s rose. The majority of voters in all five of those conservative states rejected candidates that share a political ideology with Palin. Those rejections follow on the heels of the recently released poll which was conducted from July 25th through July 28th. It revealed that Palin is ranked a lowly fourth by Iowa Republicans regarding who they would like as the Republican presidential candidate in 2012. She was favored by only 11% of those polled. Hence, Palin and her political philosophy have been rejected in six conservative states just this month.

Will the trend continue? Let’s hope so. Palin’s next tests come Tuesday when Alaska, Arizona and Florida hold their primary votes. In Alaska, Palin has backed Joe Miller in his long shot bid to defeat Republican Senate incumbent Lisa Murkowski. In Arizona, Palin went with Sen. John McCain in his Senate primary bid against former Rep. J.D. Hayworth. And in Florida, Palin has picked Republican candidate Marco Rubio in that state’s Senate race.

(sung to the Bobby Hebb song “Sunny”)

Sarah, you sunk the knife into ol’ John McCain
Sarah, since then you’ve been riding the crazy train
Now your sane days are gone, and your Fox days are here
You’re number one at spreading fear
Sarah, why do you have no clue?

Sarah, selling that Tea Party Kool-Aid
Funny, how they bought your “death panel” charade
Signed for a fee, books at the mall
“Such a steal” you told them all
Money just for you, girl that’s true

Sarah, we’ve seen your untruths on the TV
Sarah, misconstruing facts from A to Z
Crib-note hand universally panned
You’re as misinformed as Michele Bachmann
Sarah, why do you have no clue?

Sarah, soon we’ll wipe that smile right off your face
Sarah, thank you, thank you for lacking all style and grace
You’re a dark bad natured liar
Preaching to a brain-dead choir
Funny but its true, yes, you are screwed

Sarah, you’re an unloved wife that’s filled with rage
Sarah, the G.O.P. should really, really keep you caged
Cuz you might shoot your gun as your brain slips a gear
And blast someone that you hold dear
Sarah, yes it’s true, you’re unglued
You’re unglued
You’re unglued
You’re unglued

Palin’s “Mama Grizzlies” On Endangered Species List

As the rock group Queen once said, “another one bites the dust”. As of yesterday, another one of the Sarah Palin endorsed “Mama Grizzlies” was shot dead by the voting public. Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel conceded the Republican gubernatorial primary runoff Wednesday to the Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich endorsed Nathan Dean. Prior thereto, both CeCe Heil (House, Tennessee) and Cecile Bledsoe (House, Arkansas) were each  defeated in their elections despite the Sarah Palin mark of approval. And as of today, the following Palin endorsed conservative female candidates are trailing in the polls: Star Parker (House, California) and Ann Marie Buerkle (House, New York). Sarah Palin’s star making power is now officially on life support.

Palin seems to believe that the majority of the American public agrees with her uber-conservative ideology. For instance, just last week during her cojones speech, she misinterpreted the results of the Missouri “Proposition C” referendum vote. In that vote, Missouri Republican Party primary voters passed a purely symbolic referendum allowing state residents to opt out of mandatory health insurance as imposed by the recently enacted Health Care Reform Law. Palin said, “The Show Me State showed Obamacare the door yesterday”, but she failed to mention that virtually only Republicans voted that day or that the Missouri vote was meaningless because federal law trumps state measures on issues of commerce.  She fails to understand that it is only the fringe group Tea-Baggers and far far right of the Republican Party that endorse her views. Moreover, those two groups together only constitute a minority of the voting population.

As her hand chosen candidates continue to lose elections, Sarah Palin might finally get the clue that mainstream American voters do not agree with her on the issues. Let’s hope that this reality eludes her however. After all, we do not want Sarah Palin to realize that she is unelectable and therefore choose not to seek the Presidency in 2012. If that were to happen, who would we laugh at during debates?

Another Day song link:


(sung to the Paul McCartney song “Another Day”)

Ev’ry day she wakes up yawning and with messy hair
Reads the morning papers just to see if she is mentioned there
It’s just a Palin day
Listen to her squawking, right there on Fox News
Crib notes in the pocket of her raincoat
It’s just a Palin day
At the compound where the Palins live out by the lake
Sarah wonders if the fence she built was just a big mistake
It’s just a Palin day

Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day
Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day

So sad, so sad
Sarah Palin is mad
All she speaks of is heaven and hell
And the “death panel” lies that she always tells
Oy vey, she’s all tanned up
She’s so dumb, by the way, where are her kids today?
So sad
Sarah Palin’s so sad

She’s incensed that her poll numbers are in a nose-dive
She needs Glenn Beck at Fox to keep her election hopes alive
It’s just a Palin day

Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day
Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day

So sad, so sad
Sarah Palin is sad
All alone her life must be like hell
Till those Tea-Bagger freaks come and break the spell
Oy vey, they ham it up
They all come and they stay but they leave the next day
They’re mad
They and Sarah are mad

Ev’ry day she exits like a bat from out her lair
Takes a swipe at liberals with lies manufactured from thin air
A Sarah Palin day
She just keeps on talking, hasn’t got a clue
Wanting everyone to know her name though
A Sarah Palin day

Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day
Du du du du du du, It’s just a Palin day
