Sarah Palin's Big Speech
Not yet scheduled, but as I have long predicted, Sarah will one day give the big speech announcing she will not seek the Republican nomination. I thought I would get my draft out there in case she wants to use it.
(With many, many apologies to Sirs Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd-Webber)
A hush falls on the crowd as figures are seen on the balcony of the Casa Ice-ada. The the cry goes up from the crowd! "PALIN, PALIN, PALIN!" The voices of women and children rise to take over the chant, "Sarita, Sarita, SARITAAAAAAA!"
A pause. The music swells:
It won't be easy
You'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love
After all I been through
You won't believe me
All you will see
Is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up in what’s mine
By Republican donors like you.
I had to let it happen
I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life, fish in keel
Looking out of my window
With no winter sun
So I chose freedom
Running around trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to.
Don't cry for me Tea Partina
The truth is I’ve never left you
All through my wild days
My FOX existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance.
And as for fortune and John McCain
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world
They were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions
They promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me.
I want to tell the people of Tea Partina
I've decided I should decline
All the honors and titles you've pressed me to take
For I'm contented . . . Let me simply go on as the woman who brings real people To the heart ($$) of her own.
Don't cry for me Tea Partina.
The truth is I shall not leave you.
Though they make it harder for you to see me,
I'm Tea Partina, and always will be.
Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do
Is buy my books to know
That every word is true!
