Palin: Ambassador of Karaoke to the Philippines

"I think that it would be absurd to not consider what it is that I can potentially do to help our country," said Sarah Palin, when pressed for details on a probable run for the White House.

What a patriot!

Now, thanks to an item in the New York Times, I think I've found the greatest contribution that La Palin can make: Karaoke star. In the Philippines.

This is one of those Hands-Across-the-Water assignments. What brings people together more than the power of shared music-making?

Of course, Sarah needs a song that embodies her personal mission. May I nominate "My Way"?

It's a song that says it all: ask her a question, and she'll give you the answer to the question she wished you'd ask. Elect her to office, and she serves the term she wants to serve, not the one those Elitists put in the state constitution.

According to the Times, in the Philippines, "
The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”

What greater act of courage than to restore American domain over this Sinatra/Anka (the writer--also the master who penned the masterpiece taken to its heart by the so-called Pro-Life movement, "You're Having My Baby.") She could sing that one too before the Big Finish, although it might be a little confusing to a bunch of Joe Six-Packs into their eighth round.

If she were to join the sad statistics of those who had gone before her, (she said in Nashville that she was willing "to die for the American people") she would have at least had the opportunity to articulate her basic political stance in the final moments of her gilded life. And of course, she'd be a patriot-martyr, which she has claimed to be all along.

Saint Sarah!
i bet, if princess squinted really, really hard, she could see the philippines from her house.
I would like to add the song, "I've Never Been to Me" to her playlist.
Since her speaking voice could curdle milk, I'd think one of Yoko Ono's more atonal numbers might suit her particularly well. Or maybe she could just lip-synch.
