Palin’s Runny, Run-On Sentences Finally Explained

When I first saw these hilarious photos and video of Sarah Palin’s palm-written Tea Party crib notes, all I could think was:

Notes on your hand,
Notes on your hand,
Lookin’ like a fool
With your notes on your hand.

Sorry, I watch way too much American Idol.

But relying on a cheat-sheet on your left hand during a friendly Q & A session is rich, coming from a woman who disparages President Obama’s (fictitious) inability to speak without a teleprompter.

This brings me to my latest limerick:

Palin’s Runny, Run-On Sentences Finally Explained
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Sarah Palin comes armed when she speaks
With crib notes on “hand” for sneak peeks.
Guess she’d better not wash
Before speeches. Oh gosh,
I sure hope that those scrawls ain’t antiques.

    It would be funny if it were not so serious. There are people out there who actually believe that Sarah would be a better President than anyone. She is dangerous because she appeals to the worst part of the radical element in our country. They actually like the fact that she is so dumb because it proves she is not one of the “eastern educated elite” that they love to hate. She foments hate and negativity.

  2. madkane says:

    I agree with you Carol. But I have to laugh and mock her — otherwise I’d cry.

  3. Dondura Miller says:

    I think Sarah should run for president next time, it would guarantee that anyone the dems offer will be elected. Only fools and aluminum hat people think she is all that and Swiss cheese too…

  4. Linkmeister says:

    To mix metaphors, Dondura, she’d get her aluminum hat handed to her!

  5. Realist says:

    Oh sure! You say Sarah speaks funny?
    What else can you ‘spect from FOX’ honey?
    She’s not gonna shelve
    Her plans for oh-twelve
    You KNOW she’s just there for the money!

    It matters not then what she says
    ‘Cause she thinks she’s gonna be Prez
    She’ll try ev’ry spin
    In trying to win
    And for fun she might take up the fez!

    You just don’t bring up Mister Rush
    She will loudly remind you to shush!
    Those she hammered hard
    For saying “Retard”
    Can’t cause her career to be flushed!

    And once she’s elected she’ll rule
    Until she starts looking the fool
    She’ll pack up and dash
    And look for the cash
    That makes her brain tremble and drool!

    So cut Missus Palin some slack
    While she works on making comeback
    Her Tea Bagger horde
    All pray to the Lord
    That she’s not another dumb hack!

  6. madkane says:

    Wow, Realist, a quintuple limerick. Great fun!

  7. PianoMan says:

    This is all very funny – but this song by Tom Chapin pretty much says it all:

  8. madkane says:

    Thanks, PianoMan. Enjoyed the Chapin song.

    previously mentioned- and yes this worries me. but let’s truly face facts. despite any sort of stupidity high-water-mark being reached in the previous 8 year run, I don’t think there are near enough idiots out there to elect her. likewise, after ousting McCain, I wonder if the GOP would even allow her to run. votes are votes is the call I hear, but I don’t think they are dumb enough to truly allow it. with her in office- she’d be puppet to anything. even non-party politics. not a good idea for a failing GOP.

  10. If it weren’t so scary, it would simply be ridiculous!! This is one time the saying, “Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid” is worth heeding.

  11. Funny poem, but what does it have to do with run-on sentences?

  12. Mad Kane says:

    Thanks Common Sense. I didn’t mean the title to be literal. I was just having a bit of fun with the thought of notes on her hand getting damp and smudgy and running, and what effect that might have on Palin.

    Harriet, scary indeed.

    And Sleepy, I don’t think the Republicans would select her because she’s so hard to control. People like Palin make bad puppets.

  13. If you think the Democrats are in trouble now, just wait until their ubber liberal leadership force feeds Obamacare to the people via an unprecedented end run around a filibuster in the US Senate via “reconciliation”! These dolts have one chance and that is if their “blue dogs” save them, and themselves (if that is possible at this point), and refuse support to Pelosi, killing this abomination of special interest legislation. Then, if these same “blue dogs” will revolt completely and end run Madam Pelosi, putting forth common sense, easily understood BIPARTISAN healthcare REFORM that will radically arrest costs increases, Nov could be competitive.
