Look what Sarah Palin done started/A bunch of candidates with the intellect of starlets/On the surface they seem like they’re harmless/But what if they win and end they up in congress/The result would be carnage I’m just being honest.
I didn’t come up with those lines but I think it is the truth. That’s the opening lyrics to this video by Pittsburgh rapper Jasiri X.
We’re less than a week away from the mid-term elections and Sarah Palin’s so-called ‘Mama Grizzlies’ is getting a good ole’ Hip Hop slap in the face from Jasiri. To the tune of “American Woman” by singer Lenny Kravitz, Jasiri brings us “Republican Woman…Stay Away From Me”.
In this video, he goes at Palin, Christine ‘Odonnell, Sharon Angle and Michelle Bachman with a fitting hook “Republican Woman stay away from me. Republican woman you are so crazy.”
“As usual the antics of the Tea Party/Republican candidates made it almost too easy to make fun of, and because they have so many high profile, although comical women candidates, we thought “Republican Woman” would definitely get the point across,” says Jasiri X.
In the song Jasiri rhymes, “And whose crazier than Michelle Bachman/And the loonies in that tea party caucus. Plus her wild eye ranting causes/More shame for Minnesota than all the texting Farve did.”
Republican Woman…Stay Away From Me!
