Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
In light of the announcement that Sarah Palin is starting her own “internet channel,” I thought I’d trot out an oldie but goodie from ’08. In certain, tragic ways, it’s still relevant…
The Belle of the Brawl
Most running for Prez will want in their veep
A figure who’s clearly prepared for that leap
To the Oval, in case his commander-in-chief goes to sleep
And never wakes up. It’s a heap
Of a load, yet Mac tapped Palin: Americans weep.
Sure she has plusses, no Little Bo Peep,
But Wasilla’s accessible only by Jeep;
It ain’t no metropolis where crime’s on the creep,
So a person might wonder, Why Palin for veep?
I reckon McCain hoped to wrangle some “sheep.”
In any event, the tactic was cheap,
Resulting in Mac going down in a sweep,
And possibly hurting his party down deep
On the ballot. The losses were steep.
As for Palin? I hear she’ll be played in the film by Streep.
