Bubble Girl

When she was chosen as McCain's running mate,
As a woman, I wanted her to be more than meets the eye,
Beyond designer glasses and couture duds, attractive enough,
Hopefully not a bubblehead, just not wearing a tie.

But then she opened her mouth, twanging,
The same old stories and zingers repeated,
Not ready for prime time, but full of spunk,
No celebratory dance when she was defeated.

Two years plus, there's no growth and expansion,
Under contract to Fox News and a Facebook Face,
Unwilling to venture beyond safe and secure audiences she can control,
Bubblegirl - how can she seriously think about entering the 2012 Presidential race?

Reality show celebrity, cartoonishly ignoring truth and consequences,
Her video reaction to "Tucson" was far from a verbal nurse,
Take no responsibility, answer no unscripted questions, live in your bubble...
Until...until...it looks like it may have just burst.
