Song going through Sarah Palin's head during the VP debate...

("I Have Confidence in Me" by Julie Andrews)
(Original lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II. Amended lyrics: Snowdrops)

What will this day be like, I wonder?
What will my future be, I wonder?

It could be so exciting,
To be out on the stage, to be seen...
My heart should be wildly rejoicing...

Oh... What's the matter with me?

I have always longed for attention,
To do the things I've never dared.
Now here I'm getting attention
Then why am I so scared?

Biden with years of experience...
What's so fearsome about that????

Oh I must stop these doubts, all these worries.
If I don't I just know I'll turn back.
I must dream of the things I am seeking...

I am seeking the intelligence I lack....

The intelligence to serve my country with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance

Show them I'm ready!
And while I show them,

SO let them bring on all their questions!
I'll do better than my worst!
I have confidence they'll put me to the test
But I'll make them see I have confidence in me!

Somehow I will impress them...
I will be folksy but firm...

And all those voters - Heaven bless them - THEY WILL LOOK UP TO ME!

And mind me! With each wink I am most certain,
Everything will turn out fine!

I have confidence the world can all be mine!
They'll have to agree I have confidence in me.

I have confidence in Cheney!
I have confidence in Bush!
I have confidence that McCain will win this time!
Besides which, you see, I have confidence in ME!

Strength doesn't lie in poll numbers!
Strength doesn't lie in facts!
Strength lies instead in cheerful ignorance...
All mavericks, WAKE UP!
We're a team!

All the neocons I gave my soul to.
All their lines become my own.
I have confidence in confidence alone....

(The world groans: Oh help!)

I have confidence in confidence alone....

Besides which, you see,

I suspect Tina Fey is Sarah Palin. It's all a joke.

You know, it would have been brilliant if McCain has actually chosen Tina Fey as his running mate. Alas, unfortunately that is not to be and we are really stuck with Sarah Palin instead.
