T'was the night before election and all through the land everyone was wondering, was the election in hand?
"Never!" yelled McCain on TV, "ditto" cried Palin, "there's simply no way our campaign is fail'n."
I sat in my living room, remote by my side, the phone off the hook, I was trying to hide.
When out though the window I heard such a chatter, I went to go see just what was the matter.
I spied out the window and across the great lawn, a mob of angry folks surrounding Sarah and John.
"They're Commies! They're terrorists! They'll tax you to death!" came from the crowd with each angry breath.
"He's Muslim! He's foreign! He's elite even worse!" One yelled the N-word in one spiteful curse.
"Down with Obama, down with Biden, off with their heads! ...The country can't handle them, they're better off dead!"
I stood there in horror, how could this be, but standing there in the middle was Palin smiling with glee.
"Liberals hate America and freedom and folks who love God," exclaimed the VP pick with a wink and a nod.
I couldn't believe the mobs violent reaction and that Sarah's sharp words could have so much virulant attraction.
All I could do is hang my head down in shame, that this once respectable party would play such a game.
These unsavory tactics, they work I confess, but eight years of this crap is what got us in this mess.
