A first it seemed daring–a bold McCain stroke.
His choice of Ms. Palin proved he’d go for broke.
Conservatives loved her. She held them in thrall.
They thought, “This McCain’s not so bad after all.”
Because of that start it’s now hard to believe a
McCain camp lieutenant would call her a diva.
That’s politics, which isn’t beanbag or cricket.
And now there’s no doubt she’s a drag on the ticket.
They dressed her all up. They could dress her in Prada,
But what she can say that’s of substance is nada.
Folks say it was reckless, considering oldness,
For John to pick Sarah. Well, so much for boldness.
