Screen Door Sunday is Coming…

This is it.  The final week of the Palin administration.  And while many Alaskans are still fans of the governor, gone are the days of 80% and 90% approval ratings.  The gubernatorial vetting process ended up being done by the national media after she’d already been tapped as John McCain’s running mate, and the nation (as well as the state of Alaska) learned a lot.

So now, this polarizing and divisive figurehead, known to us all as the soon-to-be-ex-two-thirds-of-one-term governor Sarah Palin has had enough.  She’s packed her bags and is headed for greener pastures.  So what’s a state to do?

Celebrate!

I’ve been hearing a lot about “screen door” parties.  In other words, “don’t let the screen door hit you on the way out!”  Are you having a Screen Door Saturday Party?  Or a Screen Door Sunday barbeque?  Even if you’re just lifting a glass, let me know.  I’ll be posting pictures and short descriptions of your celebration.

For any Mudflatters in Cordova, or looking for a great excuse to go, don’t miss a great party at The Reluctant Fisherman Inn!  According to their Facebook page, the festivities will begin at 7pm on Sunday night.

Our Guv’s last day: This is an historic event in the colorful history of Alaskan politics: We got dumped! Our Governor broke up with us. We cannot let the day go by without, well, hell, any excuse for a party!

Costumes, lipstick (and baggage) encouraged. Prizes! for Best in Show-off, Best Pageant Walk, Best Quitter Excuse, and others as we make them up!

The play list sounds awesome.  Here are some of my favorite selections.   Any other suggestions?

> Would I Lie to You? Eurythmics
> Money (That’s What I Want) Barrett Strong
> Ticket To Ride The Beatles
> You Better Go Now Billie Holiday
> Break On Through (To The Other Side) The Doors
> Leaving Here Eddie Holland
> Go Your Own Way Fleetwood Mac
> Here’s To The Losers Frank Sinatra
> Gone Fishin’ Louis Armstrong
> What’s Going On Marvin Gaye
> 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover Paul Simon
> Slip Slidin’ Away Paul Simon
> It’s All Over Now The Rolling Stones
> Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye Steam
> All Over Phoebe Snow
> 19th Nervous Breakdown Rolling Stones
> You’ve Lost That Lov’n Feeling Righteous Brothers
> So Long, Farewell The Sound of Music

    Beautiful LOSER, again by Bob Seger (is it bad to bring Bob into this?)

    Beautiful LOSER,

    When you realize
    You just don’t NEED IT ALL?

    Beautiful LOSER,
    Read it on the wall
    And realize
    You just don’t NEED IT ALL.

    You can try and try,
    But you CAN’T HAVE IT ALL!!!!!

    Up with the sun,
    Gone with the wind.
    She always said I was lazy.

    Leaving my home,
    Leaving my friends.
    Runnin’ when things make me crazy.

    Women have come,
    Women have gone.
    Everyone’s trying to cage me.

    Those are the memories that make me a wealthy soul.

  24. CRFlats says:

    I will think differently about the lyrics of this oldie summer bubble gum song (interestingly enough, penned by Paul Simon for the Seekers):

    Red Rubber Ball

    I should have known you’d bid me farewell.
    There’s a lesson to be learned from this
    and I’ve learned it very well.

    Now I know you’re not
    the only starfish in the sea.
    If I never hear your name again
    it’s all the same to me.

    And I think it’s gonna be all right.
    Yeah, the worst is over now,
    The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

    You never cared for secrets I’d confide.
    For you I’m just an ornament,
    Something for your pride.

    Always running, never caring,
    That’s the life you live.
    Stolen minutes of your time
    were all you had to give.

    And I think it’s gonna be all right.
    Yeah, the worst is over now,
    The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

    The story’s in the past with nothing to recall.
    I’ve got my life to live and I
    don’t need you at all

    The roller coaster ride we took is
    nearly at an end.
    I bought my ticket with my tears,
    that’s all I’m gonna spend.

    And I think it’s gonna be all right.
    Yeah, the worst is over now,
    The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

  37. the problem child says:

    Ozzy Osbourne, “Crazy Train”

    I’ve listened to preachers
    I’ve listened to fools
    I’ve watched all the dropouts
    Who make their own rules
    One person conditioned to rule and control
    The media sells it and you have the role

    Mental wounds still screaming
    Driving me insane
    I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

  38. Lee323 says:

    Definitely….”Thank God and Greyhound, You’re Gone.” by Roy Clark

    The visual of an ole greyhound pulling up to the gubbner’s mansion in Juneau, loadin’ up Sarah and her brood, and roarin’ off in a cloud of stinky fumes back to Wasilla…..priceless. Take it away, Roy!

  39. who me? says:

    You Alaskans know how to do it right! This is hilarious. Enjoy your celebrations on Sunday. You deserve it.

  40. overthemoon says:

    I just went through the whole list…incresible play list for your parties!!! Keep the video cams rolling, there’s a great story here.

    For those going to the Gov’s Picnic (kinda like the Teddy Bear’s Picnic? Well they had (sad) sack races…and they fell on their faces) Will there be vocal celebrants to let that woman know she’s burned all her bridges to and from nowhere??

  41. Joe 12-pack says:

    gotta add “She’s Crafty” by the Beastie Boys to the playlist:

    …I said, “I don’t know her just met her tonight.”
    And Adrock started hiding everything in sight
    D. pulled me over said, “Hide your gold,
    The girl is crafty like ice is cold!”
    The girl is crafty – she knows all the moves
    I started playing records – she knew all the grooves
    He thought she was a thief – and D. was right
    But I just figured she’d spend the night
    When I woke up late in the afternoon
    She had taken all the things from inside his room
    I found myself naked in the middle of the floor
    She had taken the bed and the chest of drawers
    The mirror, the TV, the new guitar cords
    My remote control and my old skateboard
    She robbed us blind – she took all we owned
    And the boys blamed me for bringing her home

  42. Lonnie says:

    Make the World Go Away – appropriate song for the Quitta from Wasillia

    Is there a song called the world’s longest 23 days?

  45. Husky82 says:

    “Rockin’ Robin”

    He rocks in the tree tops all day long
    Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
    All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
    Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

    Rockin’ robin, tweet tweet tweet
    Rockin’ robin’ tweet tweetly-tweet
    Blow rockin’ robin
    ‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight

    Also too, “Witchy Woman” by the Eagles

    Raven hair and ruby lips
    Sparks fly from her finger tips
    Echoed voices in the night
    She�s a restless spirit on an endless flight
    Wooo hooo witchy woman, see how
    High she flies…

  46. overthemoon says:

    Wow, So many songs about leaving and being crazy!!

    Some one may have mentioned:

    Cry Me a River — Best done by Julie London.

    Good one for when she comes a$$ draggin’ back to Wasilla after being eaten alive in NYC!!

  47. Lainey says:

  48. jojobo1 says:

    LA BAMBA-BARACK OBAMA came across this as I was on u-tube and looking at oldies but goodies from the fiftys and sixties. Kind of cute I loved Richi Valens ant when they were killed ,Ri9ci,the Big Bopper andBuddy Holly,the day the music stopped

  49. Judy5cents says:

    Just remembered another great country song for Sarah. Kenny Rogers’ “You PIcked A Fine Time To Leave Me, Lucille.”

    You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
    With four hungry children and a crop in the field
    I’ve had some bad times
    I’ve lived through some sad times
    But this time your hurtin’ won’t heal
    You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.

    And she did tender her resignation on the banks of Lake Lucille, so it fits perfectly.

  64. EatWildFish says:

    Sandy and Richard did the unforgettable video – “Don’t Speak for me, Sarah Palin/ I do not like you” video, sung to the tune of “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” — during the Palin VP spectacle.

    AKM: that would be a great addition to a sing along at the ScreenDoor parties this weekend. Do you still have that video archived somewhere???

    Oh, tough nuggies on their tender sensibilities. They say more and much much worse about President Obama and FL Michelle. Eff them.
    On another note – I have LOVED this song since I first heard it many moons ago. When I comes on the radio in the car, I sing at the top of my lungs and laugh myself silly. It just tickles me.
    It strikes me as very à propos for the current situation with Palin v the GOP. LOL

    “I used to love her, but I had to kill her”

    “I had to put her, 6 feet under, but in can still hear her complain”

    Yes, it’s a misogynistic rock and roll song, but someone else besides me had to be thinking it, right?

    No violence involved, rather read it as, burying her political career rather than her actual corpus.

    It’s the “I can still hear her complain” line that made me think of the song in the first place.

    I won’t decide. I procrastinate.
    You can’t reach my soul.
    It’s down a deep dark hole
    and if you love me too well,
    I’ll make your life hell.

    Celebrity by Brad Paisley:

    Someday, I’m gonna be famous,
    Do I have talent? Well, no.
    These days you don’t really need it,
    Thanks to reality shows.

    Can’t wait to date a congressman,
    Can’t wait to sue my Dude.
    Can’t wait to wreck a Ferrari,
    On my way to rehab.

    ‘Cause when you’re a celebrity, it’s adios reality.
    You can act just like a fool;
    People think you’re cool just ’cause you’re on TV.
    I can throw a major fit,
    When my latte isn’t just how I like it.
    When they say I’ve gone insane,
    I’ll blame it on the pain,
    And the pressures that go with bein’ a celebrity.
    Ah ha.

    I’ll get to cry in Twitter,
    When things don’t go my way.
    An’ I’ll get community service,
    No matter which law I break.

    I’ll make the supermarket tabloids,
    They’ll write some awful stuff.
    But the more they run my name down,
    The more my price goes up.

    Cuz, when you’re a celebrity, it’s adios reality.
    no matter what ya do;
    People think you’re cool just ’cause you’re on TV.
    Now, I can fall in and out of love,
    Have careers that barely last months.
    When they go down the drain,
    I’ll blame it on the fame,
    And say: “It’s just so tough, bein’ a celebrity.”

    So let’s hitch up the wagons and head out east,
    To the land of fun in the sun.
    We’ll be real world hillbillies, jackass millionaires.
    Hey, hey Hollywood, here we come.

    Yeah, when you’re a celebrity, it’s adios reality.
    No matter what you do,
    People think you’re cool just ’cause you’re on TV.
    Bein’ a celebrity.
    Yeah, a celebrity.
    Ah ha.

    D
    It’s not the way she walks

    Well I asked her what that was
    G

    The closer the God

    Bm
    We ain’t gonna share
    G A D
    My baby’s got big hair

    Bm
    The other day she’s running
    G
    Up on Miller Ridge
    Bm
    She didn’t check the sign
    A
    She got stuck beneath the bridge
    D
    It took the cops an hour
    Bm
    To get her out of there
    G A D
    My baby’s got big hair

    Solo’s

    D
    O when I take her picture
    Bm
    Just to get her in
    G
    I turn the camera sideways
    A
    Use a wide-angle lens
    D
    It makes people laugh
    Bm
    But she don’t seem to care
    D Bm G A
    My baby’s got big hair
    D Bm G A
    My baby’s got big hair

  178. E in New England says:

    Patience (#55) reminded me of “Get Over It” by OK Go – don’t think we’re talking about the same song, but appropriate all the same. 🙂

  179. E in New England says:

    I hate to associate these bands with She Who Shall Not Be Named, but…

    “Leaving Town” by Dexter Freebish
    “More Than Local Boys” by the Matches

    Excellent game – this could go on for ages!

  180. Patience says:

    “Get Over It”- Eagles

  181. WakeUpAmerica says:

    And let’s not forget “She’s Come Undone”

  182. pdx mb says:

    Lori in LA and Owhole1: I”m thinking Money, money, money by Pink Floyd? The one that starts with the cash register?

    How about Highway to Hell paired with Stairway to Heaven?

    I’ll be at the Portland Brewer’s Fest this weekene. Will definitely raise a glass to all your screen door parties!

  183. wild tortuga says:

    A song of disillusionment and heartbreak from the great Chet Atkins:

    “I Still Write Your Name in the Snow”

  184. Lori in Los Angeles says:

    Owhole 1: “They’re Coming to Take Me Away” is SO PERFECT!
    “to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all day long……….”

  185. greatgrammy1 says:

    I’ll be rasing my glass to all of you from Clearwater, FL in the Sunshine State. Yipee!

  186. Cynamen Winter says:

    “Cold As Ice” ~ Foreigner

  187. leenie17 says:

    “Celebration” – Kool and the Gang

    “Everyone around the world
    Come on!

    Yahoo! It’s a celebration
    Yahoo!”

  188. Laurie says:

    Cripe…next summer is my Alaskan vacation…so wish I could be in Cordova this Sunday! By the way….my muddie pals are some of the funniest people I have ever “met”. Almost as funny as Wonkette….no..just as funny, but cleaner.

  189. And Sarah Palin is singing:

    >My Way – Frank Sinatra
    >These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ – Nancy Sinatra
    >It’s My Party and I’ll Cry (Whine) if I Want to – Leslie Gore

    But the first I thought of is an old folk song:

    >So Long, It’s Been Good to Know You – Woody Guthrie (someone more creative than I could change those verses to fit her excuses)

    And the rest of us could all join in a chorus of:

    >The Hallelujah Chorus (get your music out and start practicing)

    Oh, and here’s one you can all sing the next time SP gives a speech. (It’s the one the kids sing in the morning at day camp when the site directors are ready to give the day’s announcements.)

    >Announcements, announcements, announcements
    A terrible death to die, a terrible death to die
    A terrible death to be talked to death
    A terrible death to die
    Announcements, announcements, announcements!

    (Sorry, but day camp starts today and even though I’m no longer a site director, this time of year my brain automatically starts singing weird songs and thinking of goofy things to do.)

  190. 0whole1 says:

    Paranoid by Black Sabbath

  191. Lainey says:

    I’ll be doing my happy dance, raising a glass (or two…also too)… cin cin, clink, cheers! I’ll be blasting all those above mentioned songs… great choices!

  192. 0whole1 says:

    They’re Coming to Take Me Away, by Lard (original br Dr. Demento?)

  193. CO almost native says:

    “Poison Ivy” by the Coasters (warning to those who adore her in the Lower 48, heh heh)

    And for those at the party in Cordova: “Bop Til You Drop” (shake til you break it, move til you lose it, dance dance)- not sure who sang it originally, but immortalized by the a capella group The Nylons.

    I will be at the Castle Rock Wine Fest (26 CO wineries), so I will hoist a glass or two in salute to celebrating mudpups….

  194. Star says:

    Oh how i wish i could be there to help celebrate with you all…We all have to make sure she “NEVER” gets near the WH…LMBO

  195. nswfm CA says:

    Why not have a party on Sat nite with a Sunday brunch after party? Like in NY?
    (If she moves to NYC, she should watch out for the BIG buses.)

  196. pacos_gal says:

    Well, it’s a party, so have to have Celebration by Kool and the Gang, with lots of jumping up and down and arm raising to go along. I suggest the jump and pump method, (jump up and down and pump the air with one fist in a victory type of motion)
    Enjoy the festivities Alaska, you darn well deserve it!

  197. 0whole1 says:

    > Lori in Los Angeles Says:

    The Ross Perot Guide to Answering Embarrassing Questions

    When something in my history is found
    Which contradicts the views that I propound
    Or shows that I perhaps am not the guy I claim to be
    Here’s what I usually do

    Chorus:
    I lie
    I simply boldly falsify
    I look the other feller in the eye
    And just deny, deny, deny
    I lie

    I don t apologize. Not me. Instead
    I say I never said the things I said
    Nor did the things some people saw me do
    When confronted by some things they know are true

    Chorus

    I hate those weasel words some slickies use
    To blur their past or muddy up their views
    Not me. I’m blunt. One thing that makes me great
    Is that I’ll never dodge nor obfuscate

    Weird, they had a garage sale at the Juneau Gov Mansion, but all that they put out were old cookie cutters and pans, a few pairs of “seen better days” Naughty Monkey shoes, ugly rain gear, and some cheap Alaska souvenir trinkets from tourist shops (they wouldn’t even sell the trampoline or the tanning bed – go figure!).

    Just teasin’.
