“When you come to a fork in the road, take it”
When Sarah Palin resigned as Alaska’s governor, you’d have thought she confessed to having Muslim roots in three Islamic states while apologizing to the world for the atrocities committed by America.
OOPS — I’m getting my stories mixed up with our president — silly me.
My psychiatrist diagnosed me with multiple personalities. I was beside myself ... and so was I.
Unlike Sarah, the liberal press and a few conservatives could have been diagnosed with multiple personalities. The Sybil wannabes were filled with hubris as they spewed against the Palins. The newsies looked down their noses at the spectacle of this independent leader with conservative family values, doing what’s right for her husband, children, grandchild, state and in the long run, her country.
As the American people are turning aghast and against our smooth talking Hypocrite-in-Chief (a new poll came out just today in Ohio with a 49 percent approval rating, down 13 points from just a month ago), Sarah Palin angst has drawn most of the oxygen from the media and pundits alike. If it weren’t for Michael Jackson’s passing, Palin would have drawn even more fire. The press hasn’t yet figured out that we have a president who by stealth or inability is playing opposite policies with his job and our future.
The lead dog must face the blizzard first
There hasn’t been a VP in our history who has been savaged like this after losing.
Let me take a stab at an explanation:
Most people have seen Mel Brooks’ 1974 comedic classic Young Frankenstein. Cloris Leachman plays Frau Blucher, the evil looking though benign castle-keeper. Every time her name is mentioned thunder explodes, lightning crackles while horses rear and whinny, horrified by the mere mention of her name.
It was rumored falsely that “Blucher” closely resembled the German word for glue.
I have it on good authority from my relative in Nome, Nanuck Weinbaum, that the words “Sarah Palin” means “Dems must pay taxes” in Eskimo.
Now I understand the outrageous revulsion to her name. It’s the only plausible explanation.
Go up to a lib and say, “I want you to help get Sarah Palin elected president in 2012.” Then let me know what his reaction is. However, you may want an EMT team standing by.
The little ditty below came to mind:
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SARAH...
...that makes liberals nuts.
They hear her name and rant and rave, like a serial putz.
Braying snorts at her failure to abort.
Her large family an anomaly to their secular port.
It seems unfair to play 40 million against one,
But that’s never bothered liberals,
To them it’s ultimate fun.
Sarah won’t cooperate with their fatal trap,
refusing to take their daily scorn,
She fired under deep attack.
Libs they cannot take it.
A conservative fighting back?
What happened to that Caribou Barbie we nailed as a hack?
What a run we had with the infraction of the day.
Palin was on the ropes. She could not afford to pay.
She upped and quit in a speech of fate.
“Sorry boys, I’ve moved the game to the lower forty eight.”
So Sarah passed the ball to a man of her liking,
Now she can travel like a conquering Viking.
Giving speeches making friends, writing books-
Tying up financial ends.
There’s talk about her running for the prez in two thousand-twelve.
After all how much time can she sit upon the shelves?
The libs will froth venom and some right-wingers too.
They know plans to keep her down now have them sad and blue.
‘Cause Sarah is unburdened with belt philosophy.
She learned her common sense on her daddy’s knee.
Her mind’s not cluttered with the mentality of DC
For she’ll have the final say,
come her judgment day.
The moral? Visit friends on your turf, enemies theirs.
