The best Sarah Palin song

#55. With so few days to go to the US presidential election I worry about missing out on all that great Sarah Palin material.

For anyone who doesn’t recall Quayle he was famous for that potato incident and for saying things like “it’s great to be in Latin America, I am only sorry that I don’t speak Latin” and for addressing some hurricane refugees taking refuge on a beach by starting his speech with “Hello, happy campers”.
The title of “Sarah Palin video of the day” must go to the re-make of The Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah”. Almost better than the original version.
