Should Sloppy Joe Sew His Lips Together?

By Mike Welsh


If I live to be 150 I will never begin to understand why seemingly shrewd politicians sometimes say stupid things.

It’s pointless having expensive media advisors if you are going to ignore their counsel and boldly stand before a rack of microphones, open your fat gob and spit out stupid things.  Stupid things which stick to you for several days like dog shit on your shoes. Forcing the above mentioned and highly remunerated media advisors to scrape off your smelly foot-in-mouth comments. And to add spice to your dog shit have your political opponent “take the mick”.

Yes I’m referring to Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey

This week our tubby Treasurer followed up his 2014 “poor people don’t drive” clanger with the inspiring revelation that “somewhere today there is a child born who could live to 150”.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, not known for sharp and penetrating heckling, audaciously invoked the name of the Patron Saint of Saying stupid things, Sarah Palin, after Joe’s Sesquicentenarian scenario.

And what does the lady herself think of the Hockey gaff?

Listen to a call I made to a Sarah (queen of hockey jokes) Palin I Know.


Is Sarah Palin the Best Sarah Palin Impersonator??

SP #2 I thought I saw Sarah Palin on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show this week. Or was it Jimmy Kimmel?  And BTW who is Jimmy Kimmel? Was it the “Real” Sarah Palin?.  Are there too many Jimmys and  too many Sarah Palins?.

I may not be the sharpest tack in the pack but I struggle to separate the “Real” Sarah Palin from the  “Real” Sarah Palin when she  goes on TV and takes the mickey. And then there’s  the “Real” Sarah  Palin impersonators and the “Faux” Sarah Palin impersonators??.A few

Has the “Real”  SP  “wised up” since she got royally pranked by a couple of Canadian radio pranksters  who sucked her into thinking she was speaking to French President Nicolas Sarkozy?

Seems Sarah has taken on a “if you can’t beat em join em” attitude. But how would you know?

I took a call from a “Sarah Palin” on my radio show a couple of years back and a loyal listener  videoed the whole silly (or sincere) call.
