Mitt(wit) Romney Is The Great Pretender

Today is a big day for New Hampshire Republicans as they cast the very first votes in the nation in the Republican primary election. The heavy favorite to win is former Massachusetts Governor. But do Granite Staters enthusiastically support Romney?

The answer is “not so much” in Dixville Notch. The tiny hamlet has already closed its polls after all 7 votes were cast. The result? Mitt Romney and former Utah Gov. and former ambassador to China Jon Huntsman tied for the lead with two votes each. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas had one vote apiece. President Barack Obama received all three votes in the Democratic primary. That’s right, Barack Obama received more votes than all the Republican candidates.

The Dixville Notch tally is not likely to be indicative of the statewide vote. Most pundits agree that Romney (who owns a massive home in New Hampshire) should win the primary by a solid margin. But will such a victory coalesce nationwide support for Romney? Probably not. CNN reports that its recent New Hampshire Insiders Survey reveals that top Republican New Hampshirites believe that Romney has some very large obstacle to becoming the eventual Republican nominee for President.

The survey reveals that Romney biggest negatives are problematic perceptions:

- that he has changed views on issues for political gain (i.e. the flip-flop factor) – 52%;

- that he is not a true conservative (i.e. the secret liberal factor) – 40%;

- that his vision is not bold enough (i.e. the milquetoast factor) – 6% and

- None of the above – 2%.

CNN reports “The branding of Romney as a flip-flopper is his greatest liability nationally,” said one New Hampshire GOP Insider. “Why it didn’t hurt him here is because it was never pushed hard in this campaign by other candidates or the editorial pages [of local newspapers].” Another GOP Insider noted that the perception that Romney’s not a true conservative was “because he’s changed his views on key issues for political gain.” And a third said simply that Romney has “a trust deficit.” In short, nobody really likes the Mitt(wit).

If, as expected, Romney leaves New Hampshire as the victor, that does not necessarily bode well for him. He will have won both the Iowa Caucuses and the first primary election but history tells us that such an early sweep does not predict future success. consider the fact that the last Republican to win both of those contests was Gerald Ford in 1976. Ford of course, was the incumbent President who went on to get trounced by Democrat Jimmy Carter in the general election. It is also interesting to note that the Republican Party has not nominated a candidate from the Northeast since Thomas E. Dewey in 1948 and that did not go very well either.

Here’s hoping the same thing happens to Mitt Romney.

MITT IS THE GREAT PRETENDER

(sung to The Platters song “The Great Pretender”)

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Pretending that he is so swell
His needs are such; he pretends too much
The truth he simply cannot tell

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Romney’s true beliefs are unknown
Mitt plays the game; flip-flops without shame
With no firm beliefs of his own

He was pro-choice he had us all believe
But when he faced strife, he switched up to pro-life

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
His opinion changes by town
Mitt claims to be what he’s not; you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown

In Mass., health reform was what he achieved
He now says he feels health reform needs repeal

Yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Just switching positions around
Ol’ Mitt Romney is not what you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown

Romney Flip-Flops Into New Hampshire Primary

It would appear that Mitt Romney, the once and future GOP candidate for President, is content to allow his moniker as a flip-flopper to continue throughout his campaign. New Hampshire voters should consider his penchant for changing position on most every issue before voting for this contortionist tomorrow in the nation’s first primary election of 2012.

Mitt Romney of course, is the former Republican Massachusetts Governor and failed GOP candidate for President in 2008. He is seeking his party’s presidential nomination once again in 2012. He will however, face a lot of obstacles in attempting to win-over Republican support. The reason? Absolutely nobody understands what he stands for. He is, without doubt, the single biggest flip-flopper that we have ever scene. While Governor of Massachusetts he was in support of safe and legal abortions. He now claims to be staunchly pro-life. While campaigning in Massachusetts, he was a steadfast supporter of gun control regulations. Since then, he has joined the NRA and now claims to support essentially no firearm regulation. While in Massachusetts he favored carbon emission regulations. He now opposes them in any form.

Want more examples? In a 1994 letter to the Log Cabin Republicans, who advocate gay rights, Romney said he was in favor of “gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly” in the military. He now says it would be a mistake to interfere with the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. In 1994, he advocated a spending limit on congressional elections and the abolition of political action committees. In 2002, he supported public financing of campaigns from a 10 percent tax on private fundraising. Later, Romney said the McCain-Feingold law limiting campaign contributions is an attack on free speech. In a November 2005 interview with the Boston Globe, he described an immigration overhaul advanced by John McCain as “reasonable.” He has since denounced it as an “amnesty plan.”

Of course, the most damaging of all the Mitt Romney flip-flops is his 360 degree reversal on health care reform policy. It is now common knowledge that although Romney is bending over backwards to join in on the Republican mantra of opposing everything about the Democrats’ 2010 health care reform law, he actually enacted a virtually identical plan in Massachusetts when he was governor… and supported or voted for similar federal plans in 1994, 2006, 2008 and 2009. In fact, Mitt Romney was the pioneer of the dreaded “personal mandate” which compels individuals to purchase health insurance and which is so universally hated by conservatives. In support of his personal mandate, Romney once said,

I think there are a number of features in the Massachusetts plan that could inform Washington on ways to improve health care for all Americans. The fact that we were able to get people insured without a government option is a model I think they can learn from.”

Ouch! That is surely going to leave a mark!

Certainly, those examples alone prove that Mitt Romney has the ability to flip-flop on issues more than any other candidate in memory, but he is not finished. This past year Romney has been crisscrossing the nation campaigning and fundraising. At most every speaking appearance, he has criticized President Obama by saying,

“When he took office, the economy was in recession. He made it worse. And he made it last longer.”

Romney has also repeatedly said,

“Today’s unemployment numbers show that we are going backwards, and that is the wrong direction for America. President Obama’s policies made the recession worse and as a result more people are out of work. These unemployment numbers should not be viewed as just statistics — these are real families facing significant economic peril because President Obama has failed to pull us out of this economic downturn. Americans deserve a president who will make job creation his number one priority.”

As reported in The Washington Post, the Associated Press (AP) performed a fact-check on those statements and proved them both to be false. The economy is now growing (and not shrinking like it was in 2009), the Dow is climbing (and no longer in a free-fall like it was in 2009), and the unemployment rate is down almost two full percentage points from where it was in October 2009.

When confronted with the reality that the economy has improved since Obama has been in office, Romney flip-flopped and claimed that he never said otherwise. He matter of factly told NBC producer Sue Kroll,

“I didn’t say that things are worse.”

That was Mitt Romney’s first flip-flop of July 2011, but he wasn’t finished. Back on May 16th, with great fanfare, Mitt Romney announced that he “raised $10.25 million” at a one-day phone-a-thon in Las Vegas. There is no denying that $10 million is a lot of money to raise in only a single day. Problem is, it never happened. When the Romney campaign unofficially released its numbers for fundraising in the 2nd Quarter on July 1st it revealed that the campaign only raised less than $20 million for the entire quarter. That begged the question; if the campaign allegedly raised over $10 million in a single day, how could it raise less than that amount during the entire 90 other days in that quarter? ThinkProgress.org reports, as it turns out, the campaign wasn’t telling the truth. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times revealed Romney’s “sleight of hand“:

“The former Massachusetts governor’s campaign told reporters in May that he had raised $10 million in a one-day phone-a-thon in Las Vegas. But the amount actually represented pledges gathered earlier and tallied that day, not just funds actually taken in by the campaign.”

ThinkProgress.org said, “So the campaign not only didn’t raise $10 million in one day, they didn’t even collect $10 million dollars in pledges in one day. Instead, they ‘tallied’ pledges they received ‘earlier’. The Romney campaign purposely misled the press and the public for their own political advantage.”

Mitt(wit) Romney is more fond of flip=flops than a teenage girl.

Stick A Fork In Rick Perry Cuz He’s Done!

Rick Perry's New Hampshire speech.

Anybody who follows politics will tell you that Republican Rick Perry’s Presidential campaign is floundering. The one-time consensus favorite of the GOP base now performs poorly in polls and cannot seem to attract much financial support. His debate performances have been so disastrous that just last week he stated that he may not participate in any others. In short, Rick Perry is in trouble and he knows it.

This gives us all the more reason to question his bizarre stump speech antics last Friday in New Hampshire. His speech was slurred. He made crazy faces. He made odd references. Often times he made no sense at all. It appeared that he was either drunk or overly medicated. It was sad to see a potential Presidential nominee in this condition. It was even more tragic to think that a person such as this could aspire to occupy the highest office in the United States. After watching this performance, every Republican primary voter must ask him/herself if he/she would be willing to give a person such as this the most powerful position in the world.

As we have said so many times in the past, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video-clip is worth a million words.

The new Hampshire speech was probably Rick Perry’s Howard dean moment. Ah Rick Perry, we hardly knew ye!

Come Monday song link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_lL046m1Is

DUMB PERRY

 (sung to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday”)

Heading out from ol’ El Paso
For campaignin’ and making dough
Rick’s got his ten-gallon on
He’s got his Colt 45, now he can lock and load

And Romney, he didn’t know
That he’d be trailing his foe
Dumb Perry, he’s not too bright
Dumb Perry, way out there on the right
He spends day after day in a tongue-twisted haze
And his “Ponzi Scheme” charge was a lie

Yes, Rick Perry is a bummer
Simple talk and lack of brains
And he wants to lead our nation
Some things are hard to explain

His state’s unemployment rolls grow
Its graduation rates are so low
Dumb Perry, he’s not too bright
Dumb Perry, way out there on the right
An academic haze back in his college days
His degree should have just been denied

Trouble raisin’ money
A hay-chewin’ dumb redneck cow
He’ll get the white vote in Montana
Cuz cowboys love him without a doubt

Rick craves Pennsylvania Ave. scenery
Those gals have nice smellin’ hair
He’ll love bowling on Tuesdays
Not to mention his gubmint health care

San Antonio has worn Rick quite thin
He’ll take care of his oil-drillin’ friends
Dumb Perry, he’s not too bright
Dumb Perry, way out there on the right
He spends day after day in a tongue-twisted haze
And his “Ponzi Scheme” charge was a lie
He spends day after day in a tongue-twisted haze
And his “Ponzi Scheme” charge was a lie

Mitt(wit) Romney Makes It Official: The Flip-Flop Campaign Begins!

Mitt Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts and the failed 2008 Republican Presidential candidate will announce that he is seeking the Presidency once again today. His announcement will be made in New Hampshire, which holds the nation’s first primary election.

Romney however, will face a lot of obstacles in attempting to win-over Republican support. The reason? Absolutely nobody understands what he stands for. He is, without doubt, the single biggest flip-flopper that we have ever scene. While Governor of Massachusetts he was in support of safe and legal abortions. He now claims to be staunchly pro-life. While campaigning in Massachusetts, he was a steadfast supporter of gun control regulations. Since then, he has joined the NRA and now claims to support essentially no firearm regulation. While in Massachusetts he favored carbon emission regulations. He now opposes them in any form.

Want more examples? In a 1994 letter to the Log Cabin Republicans, who advocate gay rights, Romney said he was in favor of “gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly” in the military. He now says it would be a mistake to interfere with the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. In 1994, he advocated a spending limit on congressional elections and the abolition of political action committees. In 2002, he supported public financing of campaigns from a 10 percent tax on private fundraising.

Ouch! That is surely going to leave a mark!

Even if Republican voters decide not to hold Mitt Romney accountable for his multiple policy flip-flops because they believe that he has the business acumen to help the economy create jobs, he still has a problem. You might recall that while running for Governor of Massachusetts, Romney promised Bay State voters that he would use his business savvy to create many new jobs. Did he fulfill his promise? Not exactly. During his full term in office, Massachusetts ranked 47th in the nation in terms of job creation according to the U.S. Labor Department. The only states that created fewer jobs were Ohio, Michigan and Louisiana. Also, when you examine Romney’s job creation ranking during the first two years of his administration (the period that Obama has now been in office), you will discover that Massachusetts ranked 50th. What makes those figures even worse is the fact that Romney governed during a time of national economic prosperity.

As Ricky Ricardo once said, “Mitt(wit), you got some splainin’ to do!”

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 74

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: The Washington Post reported this week that Wisconsin Democrats have already collected over 45% of the signatures required to hold recall elections for eight GOP state senators who voted in favor of the bill to roll back union collective bargaining rights. It is quite evident that Governor Walker and the state republicans have awakened the sleeping bear. Word is, it is really hungry.

THIS JUST IN: Speaking of Wisconsin, Think Progress reports Police estimated up to 100,000 people turned out in Madison, WI last Saturday to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) assault on unions, making it bigger than any protests the city has ever witnessed. More noteworthy however, is that at 85,000-100,000, it was bigger than the biggest Tea Party protest, the September 12, 2009 rally in Washington, D.C., which turned out only an estimated 60,000-70,000. So, the next time some Tea Bagger tells you that the Tea Party is representative of the American people, enlighten him/her with that statistic.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s interesting factoid is that an estimated 2,405 Americans have been shot and killed since the January 8, 2011 Tucson massacre, adding to the grim toll of 400,000 felled by guns since Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated in 1968. (The estimate of gun murders and accidental deaths is based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.). By the way, none of the 18 mass shootings since May 2007 was stopped by a legal-handgun carrier. How is that for sane gun regulation policy in the United States?

THIS JUST IN: New Hampshire‘s state motto is “Live Free or Die”. Unfortunately, the Republican majority in the state to my immediate north has chosen to truly activate the second half of the state motto. ThinkProgress. com reports “the New Hampshire House approved a tax cut on cigarettes even while cutting funding for education, and health care. The ten cent tax cut bucks a national trend of raising taxes on tobacco since “forever” and, according to multiple studies, could lead to a 6.6 percent increase in respiratory cancer deaths.”

BREAKING NEWS: Speaking of crazy states. This week Utah named the John M. Browning-designed M1911 pistol as a state symbol, becoming the first state in the nation to have a gun as an official symbol. How’s that for toning down violent rhetoric? The confused state already had 24 other “symbols”? This begs the question, what’s next? Perhaps the polygamous compound?

THIS JUST IN: Since we are on the topic of guns, you might be interested in this list of 4 year colleges that allow students to carry guns on campus: Colorado State University, Dixie State College of Utah, Southern Utah University, University of Utah, Utah State University, Utah Valley University, Weber State University (Utah), College of Eastern Utah and Snow College (Utah). The students of Utah sure love patriotically displaying the state symbol!

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “This Sure Sounds A Little Creepy” features former White House correspondent Helen Thomas who will be appearing in the pages of next month’s Playboy Magazine. Actually, the magazine will only feature an interview with Ms. Thomas and not a centerfold. Nevertheless, it is always a bit creepy whenever Helen Thomas and Playboy Magazine are mentioned in the same sentence.

THIS JUST IN: Remember Sarah Palin’s “Mama Grizzly” Nikki Haley who was elected as governor of South Carolina last November? Well, NetworkedBlogs.com informs us that she is having a difficult time governing her state. She unveiled a plan to personally grade state legislators. Her misguided effort was criticized as an arrogant attempt to pressure elected leaders, who work for their constituents and are not accountable to anyone else including the Governor. Haley then faced some personal embarrassment of a financial nature when it was revealed that while she was still a state representative, she allegedly lied on a job application in order to get a larger pay-check from Lexington Medical Center. She stated she made over $100,000 in 2007, when her federal tax form showed her income at only $22,000.  Haley claims someone else must have filled out the form.  The mysterious someone just happened to know her social security number, computer password and sign-in, job history, past supervisors, education, and other personal details. Sarah Palin’s “Mama Grizzlies” all seem to have the same sketchy backgrounds as does Palin.

Rikki, Don’t Lose That Number song link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbIIwH9VsjM

NIKKI, JUST CHOOSE TO BLUNDER

(sung to the Steely Dan song “Nikki, Don’t Lose That Number”)

There’s no believin’ what you say
Looks like your little wild time has just begun
I guess you kind of snared yourself, yet you still run
But your campaign now falls apart

Nikki, just choose to blunder
Though you wanna blame somebody else
We saw those email letters, screwed yourself
Nikki, just choose to blunder
Your election is now blown
Exposed by all those email letters
You’ve wrecked your home

You and that Palin clown, are just the same
You both go out trolling down Tea Bag Row
Attempting to hide your sick games, they should know
That you both have a blackened hearts

Nikki, just choose to blunder
So they will elect somebody else
You know those email letters, screwed yourself
Nikki, just choose to blunder
Your mistakes are all your own
Exposed by all those email letters
Election’s blown

(instrumental)

South Carolinians must be blind
Keep electing the cheating kind
That state is just a world apart

Nikki, it is no wonder
That they should elect somebody else
They deserve someone better than yourself
Nikki, you must be dumber
Than a Sarah Palin clone
We will all be a whole lot better
When you’re sent home.

Nikki, just choose to blunder (Nikki, just chose to blunder)
Nikki, just choose to blunder

Conservative Boston Rag Exposes Palin Gaffes and Ignorance (UPDATED)

Wow, now even the conservative newspapers are pointing out Sarah Palin’s multiple recent gaffes. On Tuesday, the Boston Herald (Enquirer) revealed to its conservative readership that the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska knows not what she is talking about when it comes to geography, court decisions or  New Hampshire legislation. Mind you, this particular newspaper is merely the barely read conservative rag of a tabloid that plays a distant second fiddle to the city’s newspaper of record, The Boston Globe. Nonetheless, it is a good sign when a conservative arm of the media not only recognizes Sarah Palin’s ignorance but exposes it to the public. Kudos to the Boston Herald.

Alaska’s former Quitter-in-Chief waded into the waters of New Hampshire politics (the first presidential primary state) last week when she endorsed Republican Senate hopeful Kelly Ayotte. Predictably, Palin utilized the sophomoric means of communication known as Facebook to publish her ignorance. The Herald (Enquirer), which is usually a trusted ally of anything conservative, reported that Palin, in reference to Alaska’s Kodiac Island, said,

As we work and sightsee on America’s largest island, we’ll get to view more majestic bears, so now is a good time to draw attention to the political equivalent of the species.

Apparently, Palin does not realize that Kodiac is not “America’s largest island”. In fact, America’s largest island is Hawaii. To add insult to injury, the newspaper revealed that Palin should know a little something about Hawaii inasmuch as one of her many sub-par college stints took place there. By that measure, she should also know a little bit about Alaska and Idaho also too.

But that was not Palin’s only mistake. The conservative newspaper reported that Palin “also overlooked some key facts in saying Ayotte ‘battled all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to protect the rights of New Hampshire parents — and won!’”  The Herald pointed out that Palin mentioned the case three times in seven paragraphs, concluding that Ayotte will fight for New Hampshire voters “just as passionately and fearlessly as she fought for you in the highest court of the land.”

Truth be told however, Ayotte (New Hampshire’s Attorney General at the time) never won the case in question. The case was never decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, and the law which she was defending (i.e. a requirement that there be 48 hour parental notification prior to a minor’s abortion) was repealed by the state’s own legislature prior to its enactment. Hence, Sarah Palin once again demonstrated a thorough lack of knowledge of Supreme Court decisions just as she did when she was famously quizzed by Katie Couric. Just for giggles, let’s take a look at that one once again, shall we?

Sarah Palin is a Moran (as that great Tea-Bagger sign once said) and it is nice to see that at least one conservative newspaper in the “lamestream media” is finally revealing that fact to its readers.

UPDATE

CNN now reports that in a blistering Op-Ed on the front page of the ultra-conservative New Hampshire Union-Leader‘s Wednesday edition, publisher Joseph McQuaid writes the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee knows little about the Granite State and even less about its residents.

Former Gov. Palin isn’t making these endorsements because, as she claims, she has spent time in New Hampshire and thus knows that the people here are a lot like Alaskans. She spent a few hours here on one day during the 2008 Presidential election. That’s still more time than she spent getting to know Ayotte, but it takes quite a bit longer to know New Hampshire. Don’t fret over what a “Mama Grizzly” from Alaska does, right now, Granite Staters have more to worry about in keeping bears away from bird feeders.

THE BALLAD OF SARAH PALIN

(sung to the television theme song “Ballad Of Davey Crockett”)

Lives in a compound up in Wassilly,
Behind a big fence so Joe can’t see
She got a taste of being “Mavericky”,
So she quit her job as Alaska’s G
Sarah, Sarah Palin, the lipsticked mama bear!

Tea-Baggers follow her where she goes,
Starin’ at their tv’s when she’s on Fox shows
A Palin sighting sets them all aglow,
As she shakes their hands and then takes all their dough
Sarah, Sarah Palin, spreading her hate and fear!

Through Red State woods she’s a marchin’ along,
Makin’ up yarns like her “death panel” song
Her looks are frightenin’ and she smells quite strong,
She’s really just a liar with facts all wrong
Sarah, Sarah Palin, the brain-dead buccaneer!

Letterman said that she dresses like a whore,
Then she screamed so much that her throat got sore
She had money but she needed some more,
Got herself a Greyhound for her book tour
Sarah, Sarah Palin, profiteering pioneer!

She says the Lord is her guiding hand,
And dinosaurs co-existed with man
All those books that disagree should be banned,
That sciencey stuff she don’t understand
Sarah, Sarah Palin, logic she will not hear!

She believes that Congress should go to Hell,
She will send them there by castin’ a witch spell
Palin wants Washington to listen well,
To all those fabrications that she does tell
Sarah, Sarah Palin, the moonbat of the year!

When she goes home her politickin’ done,
Alaskans all will up and run
But Sarah will pick up her trusty gun,
And shoot up all her neighbors just for fun
Sarah, Sarah Palin, her rifle sight is clear!

She moved to Houston an’ Austin so,
To the southern states she just had to go
Tea-Baggers were fightin’ another foe,
And Sarah hates the immigrant Joe
Sarah, Sarah Palin, nativist without peer!

She’s not the smartest but she is dumbest,
Despite six schools could not pass a test
When it comes to being dumb she’s the best,
She should make her home in a cuckoo’s nest
Sarah, Sarah Palin, the lipsticked mama bear!


Sarah “Failin’” Palin Loses to Mitt”Wit” Romney

Sarah Palin and her Tea-Bagger supporters just received a stern spanking from the citizens of New Hampshire. The good people of the Granite State have not allowed themselves to be brainwashed by the brain-dead Palin and Co. A firm known as Public Policy Polling recently polled New Hampshire residents on the question of who they would vote for as the 2012 Republican candidate for president. Palin was not pleased with the results.

New Hampshire residents chose Mitt Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts with 39% of those polled. Sarah Palin finished second but trailed Romney by a whopping 26 points. To put it bluntly, Palin was not even in the race. Trailing even Palin were Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

Rumor has it the New Hampshire residents turned against Palin when Romney released this video:

Palin was publicly dissed by the New Hampshirites. Now we must wait for the expected return volley from the upset Tea-Baggers. Will they send racist emails and voicemails to the state capital ala California state senator Leland Lee? Will they declare war on New Hampshire or demand that it secede from the union? Will they somehow blame Romney for his own popularity? Stay tuned.

In honor of the troops, please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s song parody.

PALIN IS STRANGE

(sung to the Doors song “People Are Strange”)

Palin is strange, no one is stranger
Race baiting ugly, if it be known
Woman that’s wicked, children unwanted
Soon she’ll be leavin’ Wasilla town

Palin’s strange
Stranger than ol’ John McCain
Yes, she’s strange
She can’t remember her name
Palin’s strange
She’s deranged
Palin’s strange

Bear’s in her range, so it’s in danger
She’s lookin’ hungry, it’s all alone
Woman that’s wicked, mind that is haunted
She’ll shoot it even when it’s down

Palin’s strange
Too dumb to come out of the rain
Yes, she’s strange
Just go and ask John McCain
Palin’s strange
She’s deranged
Palin’s strange

Uptight, yeah!

Palin’s strange
Cheating supporters for gain
She’ll not change
They go on chanting her name
They’re deranged
Palin’s strange
Palin’s strange
