The Poetry of Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin is a truly remarkable woman. Notwithstanding her many accomplishments, however, some small-minded critics have suggested that she is an unsophisticated rube and an anti-intellectual. But nothing could be further from the truth as evidenced by the Governor’s recent attempts at modern abstract poetry:

Blink - September 13, 2008
I ------- I answered him yes,
because I have the confidence in that readiness.
And knowing that you can’t blink,
you have to be wired in a way of being so committed,
to the mission, to the mission that we’re on.
Reform of this country and victory in the war.
You can’t blink. So I didn’t blink then,
even when asked to run.

The Be All, End All - October 3, 2008
Nuclear weaponry, of course,
would be the be all, end all
of just too many people
in too many parts of our planet,
so those dangerous regimes, again,
cannot be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons,

My Alaska - September 25, 2008
That Alaska has
a very narrow maritime border
between a foreign country, Russia,
and, on our other side, the land-boundary
that we have with Canada.
It's funny that a comment like that
was kinda made to …… I don't know,
you know …… reporters.

Putin’s Head - September 25, 2008
It’s very important when you consider
even national security issues
with Russia
as Putin rears his head
and comes into the air space of the United States of America,
where ------- where do they go?
It’s Alaska.
It’s just right over the border.

Never Again - October 3, 2008
One thing that Americans do
at this time, also, though,
is let's commit ourselves
just everyday American people,
Joe Six-pack, hockey moms across the nation,
I think we need to band together and say never again.

The Middle Class of America - October 3, 2008
Now you said recently
that higher taxes
or asking for higher taxes
or paying higher taxes is patriotic.
In the middle class of America
which is where Todd and I have been
all of our lives,
that's not patriotic.
Patriotic is saying, government, you know,
you're not always the solution.
In fact, too often you're the problem.

Hey, Joe - October 3, 2008
Hey, can I call you Joe?
Say it ain't so, Joe,
there you go again
pointing backwards again
Now doggone it, let's look ahead

The Maverick - October 3, 2008
He has been the maverick.
He has ruffled feathers.
I think that's why we need
to send the maverick from the Senate
and put him in the White House.
