Ode to Sarah Palin

A message to the Media follows and it is highly satirical.

A recent Time magazine article reported that Gov Palin is tanking in popularity among women because (and I quote) "she's too pretty, she's too confident, and she could embarrass us [women]." They go on to say, "I know, I know. With all this extra baggage a female candidate has to bear, the chances of finding a woman whom other women won't hate seem skinnier than last year's jeans."

You might have been talking about a middle school version of Superstar, twenty years ago; before I could vote. In the future, please make a distinction between your pop-culture, MTV readership and the rest of us women over the legal drinking age.

Liberal press, do you really think we believe your condescending take is really about the messenger? You may sway the election but you cannot change my values.

Just to show that this conservative is not above having a little fun, I wrote a little something to lighten things up. Maybe somehow it will find its way to Ms. Palin.

Ode to Sarah Palin

Oh Sarah, how I'm diggin' thee,
Working class mom of the G-O-P.
Conservative, gun-totin', down-to-earth,
Its only been how long since you gave birth?
Journalist, Jock, Beauty Queen,
The new kid on the national scene.
Love how you sold the Alaskan jet,
Thumbed your nose in the face of the establishment.
The liberal press came at you snarling,
'Cause you threaten the ticket of the media darling.
Went up against Biden with wit and sass,
Kept your composure and displayed your class.
Had a much better showing than they will admit,
As if you alone could save the ticket.
Good luck in your run for VP,
We need more moms running DC!

By the way, I'm not an Obama-hater. On the contrary, I think he is very charismatic and eloquent and would make a great Vice President. (You know, to gain the experience Hillary made it so clear he lacks.) As for experience, he and Sarah Palin are in the same league...but she is not running for President. Alas, I think she has more mass appeal than McCain with the critical "Middle America" sector. Heck, with just about everyone.

And on the subject of Middle Americans, can you candidates please stop talking about us like a child in the room -- meant to be seen and not heard? We do, after all, pay your salary!

if you support SARAH PALIN you should be in a strait jacket. This woman and McCain will destroy the world if you give them the chance.
