Once again, Jasiri X has created a clever yet catchy video that lampoons the terrifying new face of the Tea Party/Republican Party: women like Christine O’Donnell, Sarah Palin, Meg Whitman, Sharron Angle, Michele Bachmann, Jan Brewer, etc who can spout the most ridiculous & radical Republicanisms with a sparkling smile. The video hits hard on AZ and immigration and has got a strong um, No…Really Y’all Needs To Vote in Nov message. But you should definitely watch to see “Sarah Palin” dancing around to some rock-laced hip hop and cocking her sawed off shotgun at a young black man. Something she’d probably do daily if elected President someday.

Here’s what Jasiri says about his latest collaborative creation:

The inspiration for this song came while attending Ignite 2010, a conference hosted by VIBE and The League of Young Voters in Atlanta on the eve of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. The purpose of the event was to bring together Bloggers, Artists and Community Activists to see what could be done to positively impact the mid term elections.

Being in the same room with so many creative and passionate people caused me to contemplate what type of video we could do to encourage people to take part. As usual the antics of the Tea Party/Republican candidates made it almost too easy to make fun of, and because they have so many high profile, although comical women candidates, we thought “Republican Woman” would definitely get the point across.

As soon as I touched down from the ATL, I called Cynik Lethal to flip the track, he called in Lindsay Pavlick to play Ms. Palin and Paradise the Architech put it all together. Special thanks goes out to Shadow/Ava Lounge and the Waffle Shop for allowing us to film and Ya Momz House Studio where we recorded the song.

LYRICS
Look what Sarah Palin done started
A bunch of candidates with the intellect of starlets
On the surface they seem like they’re harmless
But what if they win and end they up in congress
The result would be carnage I’m just being honest
How high’s your education if you can’t name your college
I guess your resume needed polish
I’m you you not me that’s y’all witch
Look what at what they’lll do to win a office
Pour 100 million dollars down a faucet
Now that’s flossin but you cut cost when
Them undocumented workers you was bossin
And whose crazier than Michele Bachmann
And the loonies in that tea party caucus
Plus her wild eye ranting causes
More shame for Minnesota than all the texting Favre did

Republican Woman stay away from me
Republican woman you are so crazy

Don’t come hanging ya signs on my door
I don’t wanna see ya debate no more
I got more important things to do
That waste my vote casting it on you

Now woman I said stay away
Republican woman listen what I say

Dear God I wonder could you save me
Cause these republican women are so crazy
Like that Governor out west in AZ
Saying we got headless bodies but still come my state please
And she must have never heard of debating
Really, how do you mess up on ya opening statement
plus ya hatin made ya state look racist
The fact that your even governor’s amazing
It’s like they candidates don’t even know the basics
but if you watch em they use the same playlist
every time they see the press they skating
unless it’s fox news where they can do fund raising
if they positions not popular they change em
hoping Rush, Hannity and Beck can save em
They faker than wrestling it’s something to see
they even drafted the chick from WWE
