RNC Electricity


Resigned and uncomplaining,
for lo, so many days,
a broad expanse of balding heads
and blonds, resigned and waiting,
for a speaker talking "red meat:"
who'd thought it'd be a lady?

She'd barely dropped her first brown bomb
when white beards flowed in waves;
Not since FDR's fine speechifying
had they heard anything electrifying.

Suddenly, their favorite icons
were Palin by comparison!
Trembling, trying not to shake, her
worshipers feared their pacemakers;
if she'd used baser emotions
there would have been mass electrocution!
