JimBobby Sings The Ballad of Joanie Crockatt


Whooee! Well, friends an' foes, ol' Jymn over to Let Freedom Rain posted hisself a boog where he sorta challenged ol' JB to come up with a little sing-song all about Joan Crockatt. Joan's the CPC candidate in the upcoming Calgary Centre by-election. She used to be on Power & Politics with Evan Solomon. Her voice kinda makes my hair stand on end - like Sarah Palin only worse.

Here's what I come up with:

The Ballad of Joanie Crockatt

She's runnin' for parliament in Calgary
Where the men are men and the markets are free
The House of Commons is where she wants to be
Sittin' next to Harper in a tea party.

Joanie, Joanie Crockatt
Queen of the wild frontier.

Well, Joanie's got a voice like fingernails on glass
She uses it to root for the upper class
In Calgary the voters give Conservatives a pass
So Joanie's probbly gonna kick some Liberal ass.

Joanie, Joanie Crockatt
Queen of the wild frontier.

Joanie loves the tar sands and the pipelines, too.
She's workin' for the oil boys, not for me and you
She'll let the pipeline builders do whate'r they wanna do
So the Chinese get their tankers full of black and greasy goo.

Joanie, Joanie Crockatt
Queen of the wild frontier.

Joanie used to be a talking head on the TV
She made a buck or two appearing on the CBC
Spoutin' Harper's talking points as freely as could be
It's a liberal media conspiracy.

Joanie, Joanie Crockatt
Queen of the wild frontier.

Hah good one, Jim Bobby.

What is with all those Conservative plants in the CBC? Our public broadcaster seems to be a seed farm for the Harper Regime.

Thanks, BY.

Yes, Harper's transparent about one thing: rewarding faithful Con journo lackeys and failed CPC candidates with plum jobs.
