The Lyrics

Did you expect I'd let Hannah Alaska get away with waving the white flag of surrender without smacking her with a parody?
(instrumental opening)

Sarah Palin, she can't take the heat.
Quit as Governor, term ain't complete.
Well, another crazy day.
She threw her job away.
'Cause she can't handle anything.

She's in Alaska, where it's oh so cold.
She's got lots of fanboys but she's got no soul.
Is because of a crime?
Bristol knocked up second time?
We've been guessing most everything.

Well, you know she's gonna keep talking.
You know she's never gonna stop squawking.
And she's lying, she's lying now.

Another year, she would've been losin'
or maybe she would then be in prison
but she's lying, she's lying now.

(instrumental break)

The lights are on but no one's in her place.
She opens her mouth, she's got that look on her face.
And you ask her how she's been.
"You betcha," she's been seen
all around doin' everything.

She's got this dream about runnin' our land.
Gonna drill for the oil and be the chief-of-command.
And then she'll settle down
in her redneck-hicky town
and forget about everything.

But you know she hasn't been thinkin'.
You know she's never gonna start thinkin'.
'Cause she's got a, got a head of stone.

And when you wake up, it's a new morning.
Obama's President, a nice morning.
But in Alaska, Palin ain't been home.

(long, long instrumental fadeout)
Look at the bright side: No way THIS ever happens now: http://www.palinaspresident.us/

A great OS and nice use of it. Very well done parody in every sense. Have to go 5s no matter what party you support. You betcha, indeed.

A very fitting tribute to a true political flash in the pan

Didn't you yourself make a rule that
"Now that I'm back, all Pale-in-comparison tributes get triple ones. That's the rule."
http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/traditional1584.shtml
OK, it's your rule. No problem.

TT, if you think this is a tribute to her, then you're not appreciably smarter than she is.
Tommy Turtle - October 03, 2009 - Report this comment
Perhaps not, but that still leaves me appreciably smarter than you.

Why? Because you saw only the tree, not the forest -- sorry, that's called a "meatphor". My mistake; I'll be more literal.

Because you looked at the "little picture" -- Palin tributes specifically. But implicit in your "rule" was the general principle that any parody with whose content you disagree should be 111'd, regardless of its perfect pacing, technical excellence, or even if it's funny, perhaps at the expense of someone of whom you're a fanboy.

Having established that principle yourself, there is no inconsistency in my applying it to any of your parodies, regardless of whether about Palin, baseball, or anything else.

Game, set, and match, Turtle.
Doesn't type very well, either - October 03, 2009 - Report this comment
... and freely admit it. Should have been "metaphor".

But under the circumstances, "meatphor" is surprisingly apropos as well: Your rule was fine meatphor devouring your parody.

What's "meatphor?"

It's for grillin' and eatin'
