Sarah Palin Haiku

Sarah’s running against the Democrat’s highfalutin eloquence by speakin’ in homespun haikus.
Maureen Dowd, "Sarah's Pompom Palaver"
The New York Times, October 5, 2008

So nice ta meetcha.
I heard a lot aboutcha.
Can I call ya “Joe”?

Are things bad or good?
I went to a soccer game
to find out from moms.

You know what I heard?
Fear about their investments.
“Goshdarnit,” I said.

Did I mention yet:
John McCain is a mav’rick.
I’m a mav’rick, too.

I’m from Wasilla,
in middle America!
It's right near Russia.

Some of my best friends
Are homos or Democrats.
Don’t let ‘em marry.

Global warming’s bad,
but don’t blame Americans.
It's Roe v. Wade's fault.

Corruption, darn it.
I saw that in the paper.
Don’t ask me which one.

Our third-grade students
are the strongest in the world.
Too bad they can’t vote.

Two years ago, there,
John McCain sounded a bell.
What a mav’rick, hey?

He carries that bell,
ringin’ it real loud for change
wherever he goes.

May I say something
more about bells and taxes?
Is that all right, Gwen?

If I had a bell,
I would never ring it for
Ahmadinejad!

And we must make sure
Eye-ran doesn't get a bell,
'cause they're not mav'ricks.

As for Israel?
I won’t second-guess my friends.
Jesus will do that.

Gen'ral Petraeus.
Have you ever heard of him?
Well, I have also.

I’ll say it again:
We are a team of mav’ricks.
I’m from Wasilla!

Just remember that.
Youbetcha, America.
Say it ain’t so, Joe.

Sometimes my eye hurts
from all this winkin’ I do.
Mav’rickin’ is hard.

Damn! Now she wants to outlaw marriages between Democrats? Won't that lead to an awful lot more people "living in sin?"

You should do all your political posts in haiku.

Lynet said...

Hilarious.

Everyone:
You're all true mav'ricks
if you enjoyed my haiku;
most think they're drivel.

She loves Joe 6-pack
'cause beer goggles are needed
to think she can lead

Great combo of Ex and Dowd. Good readin'. You betcha

Chappie: She wants Democrats to have the same respect for marriage vows as Republicans.

Susanna:
If you use "haiku"
to shill for your own Web site,
make sure they're haiku.

PhillyChief said...

YouMadeMeSayIt
dot blogspot dot com is what
you should surf to now

There's no haiku there
but plenty of other stuff
that you may well like

Philly:
Nice haiku from you,
and quite effective shilling.
But why no image?

PhillyChief said...

You are right of course,
I should have had an image
so I'll fix that now

Now go to my blog
or else you will make me cry
like in that image
