Date: 13 Oct 08 - 03:03 PM

Mudcat Readers:

I embark on a tour 10/17, Seattle to San Diego, and this new song came just before I left. Time to stir things up a little, I hope!

I'm doing gigs with folks like Seattle Labor Chorus, Jim Page, Mark Ross, Jon Fromer, Faith Petric, Francisco Herrera-- info at

Meanwhile, let's hope we can overcome electronic voting machine fraud and other disenfranchisement schemes to elect Obama and at least stave off complete destruction under McCain/Palin!

Check out link:, on the right hand side of the page is the info about the Hail" CDs--

"This Ain't No Beauty Contest"

Click the link and it will start automatically and once on the myspace page, click on the box on the right to download the song -- "This Ain't No Beauty Contest."



© 2008 George Mann (10/2, 10/12)

At the heart, we're all reasonable people
And as reasonable people, I think we can all agree
That we want a president and a vice president
Who can name at least one newspaper
That they get their news from on a regular basis

This ain't no beauty contest
If it was you'd win hands down
For while Obama's kinda sexy
The other guys both look like circus clowns

But when things start getting crazy
You can't just twirl your gold baton
Or strut around in some hot bathing suit
Until the bad guys are all mesmerized or gone

So goodbye Sarah Palin
You're not ready for this stage
You're not ready for the big leagues
You're not ready for this age

You know I just don't understand why she couldn't have said
"Lawrence vs. Texas" from 2003
When the Supreme Court struck down
Texas law banning sexual contact
Between certain kinds of consenting adults

Or National Labor Relations Board vs. Jones & Laughlin Steel, 1937,
Which upheld the rights of workers to form labor unions
Or why she didn't, in the clutch, just shout out
"Brown vs. Board of Education!" from 1954
Which said that segregated classrooms were inherently unequal

After all, she was asked which Supreme Court cases she disagreed with...

You can lecture us on morals
But take a look at your own house
A druggie son, a pregnant daughter
And that's just what's gotten out

They say you cheated on your husband
Tried to fire your sister's ex
So just what have you to offer us?
I guess it all boils down to sex

So goodbye Sarah Palin
You're not ready for this stage
You're not ready for the big leagues
You're not ready for this age

Goodbye Sarah Palin
It is time for you to go
Because this ain't no beauty contest
And this country's voting "no"

No, this ain't no beauty contest
And this country's voting "no"

Thanks for checking it out, comments welcome-- George Mann

I'm such a novice, I guess the links don't go through? You can cut and paste it to hear/download the song-- George Mann
