A Peek at Todd Palin's Alaska

A Peek at Todd Palin's Alaska
Why the First Dude is having second thoughts

The First Dude of Alaska knows
the longings of the Eskimos
to feel fur parkas rim his face
and tundra 'tween his toes.

Ask Todd about the Iron Dog,
the North Slope and Iditarod.
Ask him about the musk ox herds
and arctic caribou.

He understands the salmon runs,
his float plane and his grizzly guns.
He comprehends McKinley's charm
and tracks an eagle's flight.

Beneath the dancing Northern Lights,
Todd Palin proudly claims his rights
as royalty in The Great Land.
He's Prince of Sourdoughs.

He'll pale in contrast to the crowd
if Sarah wins and it gets loud.
The First Dude won't feel much at home
in Washington DC

He'd rather scratch mosquito bites
on long Alaska summer nights.
In fact he wants Barack to win
so he won't have to move.

Queen Sarah and Delaware Joe
The difference between the two is debatable

She can wrestle a grizzly
and harpoon a whale.
But joist with Joe Biden?
Oh my! Pour the ale.

He's meaner that Bigfoot
and colder than snow.
A miner of mischief.
That's Delaware Joe.

In all of Alaska
where Sarah is queen,
there's no one like Biden
'cept Prospector Mean.

The Sting (Revisited) 
Praying Paul Newman made his peace with God 

Old man Newman lost his fight
in the quiet of the night.
A Woodward glance. A star-ward gaze.
A final act on life's small stage.
The sting of death. Grave's victory.
Those blue eyes closed. But did they see
the exodus that God provides
for those who trust Him when they die?
If Jesus became Newman's own,
he learned the truth too few have known.
That guilt is washed by sinless blood.
the guilt of preachers, popes or Hud.
That when Christ did his Easter thing,
he tricked the Devil. That's the sting!
An empty grave means death's reversed
and so is Eden's ancient curse.
"Where, O death, is your victory? Where , O death, is your sting?" The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Corinthians 15:55-57

Biden is meaner? Biden is colder than snow? Biden is full of mischief? Sarah is a queen? Biden was praised by the majority of the media, reporters and major pundants for his kindness towards Palin. Contrary to your poetic injustice, public opinion indicated Palin's performance in the debate with Senator Biden revealed her emptiness. Polls indicated Senator Biden won the debate.

"Mercifully, the Palin Express, however fast it travels, has wobbled with time. As in the debate, as her manic energy at the start faded into the fumes of frantic clichés, the American public has seen enough to be underwhelmed".

I find it very troubling to read rhymes and reasons that mock others, poke fun at others, put others down and label others by strange negative names or titles. Makes no rhyme or reason to me. Something mean little kids do. Surely this is not what Jesus would do. Nor is it part of the calling of the ministers of Christ. Rather, it is totally unchristian like.

Update: Take another peek at Todd Palin's Alaska and you will find he was a secessionist, member of Alaska Independence Party. Director of Division of Elections in Alaska, Gail Fenumiai, has it on record. Todd Palin registered in October 1995 to the Alaska Independence Party, a radical group that advocates for Alaskan secession from the United States. How Un-American is that? His wife, Sarah Palin had close association with Party although not a registered member. How Un-American is that? Palin has accused Obama of being Un-American. Besides a short period of a few months in 2000 when Todd changed his registration to undeclared, Todd Palin remained a registered member of AIP until July 2002 when he registered again as an undeclared voter.

Being McCain's major campaign focus has been on "guilt by association", then according to the gospel of John and Sarah, that would indicate that McCain's association with fraudulant Keating makes him a fraud and Sarah Palin's association with her husband Todd makes her a secessionist, Un-American and radical. McCain and Palin have used those "guilt by association" tactics more than once against Barack Obama so they ought to be practicing what they preach. Unless they are both hypochrites! Ya think?

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
