Tea Party Poems

The found poetry of Sarah Palin.

Every time Sarah Palin speaks publicly—on Fox News, at Tea Party rallies, or just for the big paycheck—she manages to insert a few phrases that sound like nursery rhymes into her speech. The following have vaulted verbatim from Palin's tongue to the page. No words have been changed.

"That Mr. Klein Is No Pal of Mine"

What a piece of work
That Mr. Klein is!
For the piece
That he wrote, that is

Something else, you know
You would hope,
That the powers that
Be at a, quote, unquote,

"Reputable" organization
Like Time magazine
That they would hold
Their employee-e-e—

And I assume that
Mr. Klein gets paid
For the columns that
He writes—that they

Would hold their employee
@@@@ACCOUNTABLE!

"Energy Destiny"

Great destiny, our destiny!
To be reached by—responsibly!
Developing our natural resources, this land,
Blessed with clean air, water, wildlife, minerals, and:
Oil and gas! It's energy!
