Sarah Who???

Sarah Palin For Veep? I knew John McCain and his Rovian puppet masters were cynical, but this takes the cake.

But hey, I’m a female.  So I guess I have to vote for whats-her-name, right?  After all, the only reason I was backing Hillary is cuz we’re both female. So naturally, now that Obama’s chosen Biden as his running mate, I must vote for a woman who STANDS FOR EVERYTHING I DESPISE:

Sarah Who???
By Madeleine  Begun Kane

Dear Johnny, I can not conceive
What could possibly make you believe
That your anti-choice pick
Could possibly click
With us Hillary-gals.  How naive!

You must think that we women are sheep,
Who would swoon at a female for Veep.
But a right-wingnut gal
Who’d control our canal?
Oh, that hole that you’re digging is deep.

Yes, your pick has a beautiful face
And she’ll help you to shore up your base.
But she’s wrong to the core
And (like you) she’s just more
Of Bush/Cheney … with feminine grace.

UPDATE: I’m very pleased that my Robert Benchley Society Humor Award has generated a fair amount of publicity. This article in Gannett’s Journal News is probably the best of the stories.  And it has a fun companion video of me reading one of my humor columns.[tags]Sarah Palin, John McCain Humor, Palin Humor, Campaign Satire, Election Humor, Hillary Clinton Verse, Biden Nomination, Obama Poem, Feminist Humor, Gender Satire[/tags]

  1. So who are you voting for? I am Writing-In Hillary and joining the New Democrat PUMA party.

    Let’s try that again, with a link that works…

    Well-done, Mad! Much better than my one paltry limerick on the same subject.

  3. L. Ivey says:

    Amen, sister!

  4. madkane says:

    Clever limerick, Steve, and thanks!

    And Greenconsciousness, as much as I’d prefer Hillary to Obama, I’m not writing her in. To do so would be a gift to McCain.

  5. JO says:

    Well done! Just shows the right is always games/phony instead of substance.

  6. Elayne Riggs says:

    Lovely as always, Mad! And great news about the award PR.

    Dear Mad,
    Nice to meet you. Would appreciate your considering the following request–Saw an item says Palin belongs to group called Feminist Forever or some such. Question–what is her definition of Feminist?
    Can you find out and publish her answer?

    Mine is, “A Feminist is anyone, male or female, who believes men and women should have the same legal, economic, and political rights”. This comes from the Oxford English Dictionary and has served me for 40 years as a fighting feminist. I am 72.

  8. Jude (Iddy) says:

    Congrats on receiving the Benchley Award, Mad. You certainly deserve it!

  9. madkane says:

    Thanks, JD, Elayne and Jude!

    Edith, your definition sure sounds good to me.

  10. Amen! That was fantastic.

    Madeleine offered “Sarah Who???”… In addition, I have tnkered with her genius “Hillary Clinton Derangement Syndrome” Haiku …

    Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome
    Smearing Sarah,
    Ignoring Barack’s foibles.
    Must stop laughing.
