(instrumental intro)

Shrub's sitting on a bad situation.
People picket the way he runs the nation...
His speech - no one understands.
He knows nothing 'bout foreign lands.
His photo-ops are neatly planned
He is not the one who's in command...
Crawford bound...
Wishes he was
Crawford bound...
Home... on his ranch escaping.
Home... where the crowds aren't braying.
Home... where the Shrub's creating
Silence - lots of Z's (zzzzz)...

Everything Bush does just seems
To be a "threat" hatched by his team...
Imaginary enemies helped shut down our democracy
Through pre-arranged rogue agencies
To prop up Bush, who longs to be...

Crawford bound...
Wishes he was
Crawford bound...
Home... on his ranch escaping.
Home... where the crowds aren't braying.
Home... where the Shrub's creating
Silence - lots of Z's (zzzzz)...

The right wing chants for war again.
Saddam is blamed, and condemned...
Shrub's tough words on Iraq must be
A shield for mediocrity.
His emptiness in policy
Just means he's inept as can be...

Crawford bound...
Wishes he was
Crawford bound...
Home... on his ranch escaping.
Home... where the crowds aren't braying.
Home... where the Shrub's creating
Silence - lots of Z's (zzzzz)...
Silence - lots of Z's (zzzzz)...

After the Democratic landslide, the Republicans are the butt of jokes

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah
(Sung to the tune of "Que Sera Sera" by Doris Day)

Dedicated to failed, utterly unqualified Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, who, after losing in a landslide, publicly persists in retaining her delusion that she may someday win the presidency of the United States for the moribund Republican Party

(instrumental intro)

Wanted our trust to run the world;
This hockey mother ran for V.P.
Thought she was witty;
"Folksy," her pitch.
Her side lost miserably.

Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...
You never will be V.P.
The voters did not agree.
Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...

Though she messed up, she is still loved;
Her base's sweetheart - she'll be their head.
Losses were painful Election Day.
Most of the voters said:

Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...
You'll never be our V.P.
The voters did not agree.
Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...

Now she just rambles on her own.
Public, she bothers: "Please look at me!"
"President Palin," her fans now pitch.
End of the G.O.P.

Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...
You never will be V.P.
The voters did not agree.
Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...

Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah...
Nay, Sa-rah, Sa-rah!

Yes, the GOP is finished

... and so is the Reagan Revolution
Gov. Palin retreats to Alaska
Gov. Palin prank called, thinking it is President Sarkozy of France

Click HERE to listen to the recorded 7-minute phone call from The Masked Avengers, comedians from Montreal.


A transcript of a prank phone call between Quebec comedy duo "The Masked Avengers" and Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin:

SARAH PALIN: This is Sarah.

MASKED AVENGERS: Ah, yeah, Gov. Palin.

PALIN: Hello.

AVENGERS: Just hold on for President Sarkozy, one moment.

PALIN: Oh, it's not him yet, they're saying. I always do that.

AVENGERS: Yes, hello, Gov. Palin.

PALIN: Hello, this is Sarah, how are you?

AVENGERS: Fine, and you? This is Nicolas Sarkozy speaking, how are you?

PALIN: Oh, it's so good to hear you. Thank you for calling us.

AVENGERS: Oh, it's a pleasure.

PALIN: Thank you sir, we have such great respect for you, John McCain and I. We love you and thank you for taking a few minutes to talk to me.

AVENGERS: I follow your campaigns closely with my special American adviser Johnny Hallyday, you know?

PALIN: Yes, good.

AVENGERS: Excellent. Are you confident?

PALIN: Very confident and we're thankful that polls are showing that the race is tightening and...

AVENGERS: Well I know very well that the campaign can be exhausting. How do you feel right now, my dear?

PALIN: I feel so good. I feel like we're in a marathon and at the very end of the marathon you get your second wind and you plow to the finish.

AVENGERS: You see, I got elected in France because I'm real and you seem to be someone who's real, as well.

PALIN: Yes, yeah. Nico, we so appreciate this opportunity.

AVENGERS: You know I see you as a president one day, too.

PALIN: Maybe in eight years.

AVENGERS: Well, I hope for you. You know, we have a lot in common because personally one of my favourite activities is to hunt, too.

PALIN: Oh, very good. We should go hunting together.

AVENGERS: Exactly, we could try go hunting by helicopter like you did. I never did that. Like we say in French, on pourrait tuer des bebe phoque s, aussi [translation: we can kill baby seals also].

PALIN: Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We can kill two birds with one stone that way.

AVENGERS: I just love killing those animals. Mmm, mmm, take away life, that is so fun. I'd really love to go, so long as we don't bring along Vice-President Cheney.

PALIN: No, I'll be a careful shot, yes.

AVENGERS: Yes, you know we have a lot in common also, because except from my house, I can see Belgium. That's kind of less interesting than you.

PALIN: Well, see, we're right next door to different countries that we all need to be working with, yes.

AVENGERS: Some people said in the last days and I thought that was mean that you weren't experienced enough in foreign relations and you know that's completely false. That's the thing that I said to my great friend, the prime minister of Canada, Stef Carse. [Palin doesn't seem to know that the Prime Minister of Canada is Stephen Harper]

PALIN: Well, he's doing fine, too, and yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundits and the critics wrong. You work that much harder.

AVENGERS: I was wondering because you are so next to him, one of my good friends, the prime minister of Quebec, Mr. Richard Z. Sirois, have you met him recently? Did he come to one of your rallies?

PALIN: I haven't seen him at one of the rallies, but it's been great working with the Canadian officials. I know as governor we have a great co-operative effort there as we work on all of our resource-development projects. You know, I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally and your beautiful wife. Oh my goodness, you've added a lot of energy to your country with that beautiful family of yours.

AVENGERS: Thank you very much. You know my wife Carla would love to meet you, even though you know she was a bit jealous that I was supposed to speak to you today.

PALIN: Well, give her a big hug for me.

AVENGERS: You know my wife is a popular singer and a former top model and she's so hot in bed. She even wrote a song for you.

PALIN: Oh my goodness, I didn't know that.

AVENGERS: Yes, in French it's called De Rouge a levre sur un cochon [translation: lipstick on a pig], or if you prefer in English, Joe the's his life, Joe the Plumber.

PALIN: Maybe she understands some of the unfair criticism, but I bet you she is such a hard worker, too, and she realizes you just plow through that criticism.

AVENGERS: I just want to be sure. That phenomenon Joe the Plumber. That's not your husband, right?

PALIN: That's not my husband but he's a normal American who just works hard and doesn't want government to take his money.

AVENGERS: Yes, yes, I understand we have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit.

PALIN: Right, that's what it's all about, the middle class and government needing to work for them. You're a very good example for us here.

AVENGERS: I see a bit about NBC, even Fox News wasn't an ally as much as usual.

PALIN: Yeah, that's what we're up against.

AVENGERS: Gov. Palin, I love the documentary they made on your life. You know Hustler's "Nailin' Paylin?" [Clueless Gov. Palin does not recognize that "President Sarkozy" is talking about a porno movie parody]

PALIN: Ohh, good, thank you, yes.

AVENGERS: That was really "edgy."

PALIN: Well, good.

AVENGERS: I really loved you and I must say something also, governor, you've been pranked by the Masked Avengers. We are two comedians from Montreal.

PALIN: Ohhh... have we been pranked?! And what radio station is this?

AVENGERS: CKOI in Montreal.

PALIN: In Montreal? Tell me the radio station call letters.

AVENGERS: CK...hello? If one voice can change the world for Obama, one Viagra can change it for McCain.

[Barely audible from governor's mansion in the background]: ... That's a radio station in France.

PALIN'S AIDE: I'm sorry, I'm going to have to let you go.

AVENGERS: Yeah! Woo-hoo!
