I apologize to all of you for the long delay in posting, but I am sure that you can understand that when you lose a loved one it takes a while to get your wits back and to fall back into the daily groove. I would also like to thank all of you that sent supportive messages during my absence. They were very comforting during this most difficult time.
That being said, now it is time to get back to business. Thankfully, once again Sarah Palin has leapt to the front of the daily news queue. She seems to have a knack for injecting herself into the news cycle whenever the Democrats have a positive development. This time she chose the day of President Obama’s National Health Care Reform Summit to announce that she will be the headline speaker at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on May 14th. The forum is undoubtedly a step up from her already scheduled speaking gigs at the National Bowling Convention and The Liquor Wholesalers Convention. Just the same, it fits in neatly with the allegedly gun-toting mama bear’s manufactured persona as a sexy, tough “Joanne Sixpack”. Rumor has it however, that the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska was actually only the second choice of the NRA. The first choice of the riflemen was the former Face-Shooter in Chief, Dick Cheney but his fifth heart attack will sideline him for awhile.

IT’S STILL LOCK AND LOAD FOR SHE
(sung to the Billy Joel song “It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me ”)
What’s the matter with the clothes she’s wearing?
I believe they’re made from wolf hide
Maybe she should buy a new pair of glasses
She’s lookin’ just a bit pie-eyed
Just when you think Sarah’s sounding kinda murky,
She gives an interview while someone kills a turkey
Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout polar bears
Funny, but it’s still lock and load for she
What’s the matter with the plane that she’s flying?
It’s not the one she sold on Ebay
She likes to leave the State of Alaska
With her family every single day
First she gave a speech in Minneapolis
Next she was headed right out to Indianapolis
Next day, Green Bay, then it’s off to LA
It’s still lock and load for she
Oh, it doesn’t matter what they say in the papers
‘Cause it’s always been the same damn scene.
She has to leave the state,
‘Cause the politics of hate dictate a nasty travel routine…
Spending the taxpayers’ green.
How about those ethics violations?
And Sarah Baby’s song and dance
She would really love to jail the complainants
If she only had half a chance.
And then there’s Levi and his TV interviews,
If he isn’t careful, he’ll be sporting cement shoes
Defense funds, end runs, new guns for everyone
It’s still lock and load for she
What’s the matter with the company she’s keepin’?
Don’t she know that they’re out of touch?
Like Sarah, they lack a strong education
Can’t accuse them of knowin’ much
That seems to be OK with the G.O.P.
Who needs college when you have a G.E.D.
It’s the new cool, no school, milky eyes and mouth drool
And Sarah is the big Queen bee
Everybody’s talkin’ bout the new party
Funny, but it’s still the same G.O.P.
