GGOT SEASON OPENS

We opened our 2008-09 touring season at Oakland Community College in Farmington Hills, just outside of Detroit, on October 3rd, 2008. Julia Child and Josephine Baker joined me in the new version of our show “Feminists Are Funny” which we performed at the Smith Theatre on campus to a raucous crowd. We had added many new bits to the show that we performed for the first time – notably our Sarah Palin song “My Name Is Sarah Palin” sung to the tune of “The Times They Are A Changin”. Luckily McCain pulled out of Michigan the day before – I think he caught wind of our performance – and thus, we were able to quickly come up with the “John McCain Blues” on the flight from LGA to end the show. We all agreed that Michigan was too “blue” for McCain and believed that a blues number would be an appropriate send off. Here’s a bit of that song:

I AM A PRO CHOICE WOMAN
BUT MY RIGHTS ARE MOVING SLOW
INSTEAD OF CONTRACEPTION
JOHN WANTS ME TO JUST SAY NO
I GOT THE MCCAIN BLUES
IT’S LIKE THE PRO CHOICE BLUES
IT’S MY BODY AND MY CHOICE
BUT NOT WITH JOHN MCCAIN
