I don't mean to burst the Washington Post's bubble, but I am totally writing my own speech for tonight. I kinda got a slow start today on the whole speech thing due to the vitamins that I had last night (what a headache!) but I think I am making some real progress on it. As I have been writing it today though, I realize that one of the problems that we are goin' to have is connecting with the 'urban' voter. It is tough enough that the Republican party is VERY white but with us running against an Afro-American it is going to be even tougher. I know that we have at least one urban vote (my dear friend/employee- Anthony) but I would like to attract alot more.
That is why I think my new plan is so 'dope' and 'fly'. Its kinda hush-hush right now (I haven't even told Steve or Mr. McCain about it- shhhh) but since I trust all of you, I can tell you that part of my speech will be performed as a rap song. Now before you get all nervous about my 'street cred', I will have you know that I once gave a speech in college that was also a rap song (it was a speech on the Bill of Rights- TOTALLY AWESOME SPEECH- btw). The problem that I am having right now is finding the right beginning for it. Here is what I've got so far:
I am Sarah and I am here to say
That I want to be your VP today
I ain't no fool and I ain't no dope
The only word that seems to fit there is 'soap' and I just don't think it is very Vice Presidential to rap about soap. I would love some tips from any 'urban' readers about how to finish that rhyme. THANKS! XOXOXOX
p.s. I also need a rhyme for "appropriations" and "sectarian factions" (I don't even know what those words mean :)
