The Power of Palin: What a Horrible Sight!

September 18, 2008

The Power of Palin

Newsweek: The Power of Palin


The Newsweek cover reads “What Women Want”
It’s in cursive in lipstick so red.
I flip through the pages to find “What I Want”
But I find something scary instead.

I see photos of women with smiles so broad
Holding signs – “Lipstick Wearers Unite!”
On “The Power of Palin” page to my despair
There are charts! What a horrible sight!

The Election Chart now: A dead heat – No surprise
But wait, what’s this one over here?
If you vote only for VP, whom would you choose?
What?? Palin beats Biden! Oh dear!!!

And another stat that has got me to thinking
Our country is drifting away.
With Palin as VP – “Strongly Support” has gone up
Another 32 points by today !

But nothing, oh nothing, beats this one oh gosh
“Is she qualified to be President if needed?”
An unconceivable 45 percent
Said “Yes” – all logic unheeded!

Just who are these people, I need to find out
Who blindly endorse without care
This wilderness woman with hardly a record
Whom McCain plucked down from thin air.

I looked up for a moment and saw my son watching
With a peculiar look on his face.
He wanted to know why I seemed so upset –
I told him all about the electoral race.

I explained all the charts to my 10-year old son
His eyes wandered, then turned to a stare.
He looked at me with his bright blue eyes
And asked, “Mom, how come people don’t care?”

The Sarah Palin Convention Speech – Oh What a Night!

September 5, 2008
Sarah Palin convention speech

Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!

Those Republicans
Were thrilled last night!
Their smiles so wide
Their teeth so white!

When their VP pick
Walked on the stage,
She was ready for battle!
She was fully engaged!

There’s usually a film
Before the “Big Talk”
But for some reason,
Tonight they balked.

Now what was the reason
I began to wonder.
Was it lack of substance?
Or just a blunder?

Well Never-the-less
It doesn’t matter.
It was time for the speech,
But there was so much chatter!

People were cheering!
People were shouting!
Enthusiastically chanting
for their Palin outing.

“Thank You. Thank You”
“Thank You. Thank You”
“Thank You. Whew!”
“Are You through?”

She proclaimed: “I’m not a member
of the Washington Elite”
As the Republicans
Jumped up from their seats!

And then she ridiculed
that “Community Organizer
Having been a mayor,
She was so much wiser!

We met her children!
Her snowmobiling spouse!
Her Parents! Her future son-in-law!
It was quite the full house !

Hail to Sarah!
Our Conservative Wonder!
Deliver us from evil
And Democratic Blunder!

My Wailin’ About Palin: Did He Vet Her? He Had Better!

September 5, 2008

What is more important
Than the person that you pick
To take over as the President
Should your own heart fail to tick?

You are choosing for a nation
Full of people with no choice
Who should be the next Vice President?
We the People have no voice!

Whom you choose reveals your inner thoughts,
Your fears, your hopes, your goals.
Whom you choose should come from serious thought
Not a reflection of the polls.

When Obama picked Joe Biden
Did the pollsters start to call
On all Hillary supporters;
“Did Obama drop the ball?”

Did the pollsters say that Hillary’s votes
Were based upon her gender?
That it didn’t matter who you picked
So long she’s handy with a blender?

Did McCain believe that Hillary’s votes
Were based only on her sex?
Can you give us some more credit
For being more complex?

A governor for two years
With five kids up in Alaska?
OK what was he thinking?
I really have to ask ya.

What does this say about McCain?
That his judgement’s not that good?
Did he vet her? He had better!
Did he pick the best he could?

Just Because He Picked Joe Biden, Hillary Fans Don’t Go Into Hiding!

September 5, 2008

I’m here to tell you about a change of heart
I was a Hillary fan from the start.
Yes, a Hillary fan true and steady
With my 100 dollar contribution all ready

I stood in line two hours at the caucus
The crowd outside; it made quite a raucous.
I took my pencil and I made my mark
By Hillary’s name that night at the park.

But as time went by and her chances went slim
I started thinking more about him.
Just who is this guy who grew up in Hawaii
If he were the president, what would that buy me ?

If she couldn’t be the president, I’d settle for vice
And if he didn’t pick her, he’d pay the price.
But as time went by and I saw the poll
It was clear she wasn’t going to get that role.

As a woman for Hillary, what do I do
Do I stand my ground, do I say I’m through?
Some will vote for Obama
Some will vote for McCain
While others of us will just abstain.

Not vote this year ? My God, my dear
What would Susan B. Anthony do if she were here?
A lack of action is not a plan
A lack of voting will elect the wrong man.

Just because he picked Joe Biden
Hillary Fans don’t go into hiding !

If you check out now, this is serious
What happens next ain’t that mysterious.
Do you really want McCain as the President ?
Another Bush as a White House resident ?

You must decide!

Do you need a push?

Remember when a vote for Nader

Was a vote for Bush?

 

When people say that Obama ain’t American
It’s time for us to start to care again.
This patriotic question is just hocus pocus
It’s important that we don’t lose our focus.

What matters to me
What matters to all
Are the policies promoted
In the debates this Fall.

And just because he picked Joe Biden
Hillary Fans don’t go into hiding !
