Palin amendment to Koko:

Koko's list was not an actual hit list, just wishful and fanciful thinking. He was wisely restricted from beheading anyone.
Actual Palin amendment to Koko: 'Listing off those people whom he intends to behead, the singer in the Missoula production noted, “that crazy Sarah Palin needs a psychoanalyst / She never would be missed, no she never would be missed.”' (A bit off target. Palin's attackers look on her as evil and/or ignorant. Not certifiable as far as I know.) http://bit.ly/g4i9Fe
Koko wisely avoided names in the original: "There's the pestilential nuisances who write for autographs — / All people who have flabby hands and irritating laughs — / All children who are up in dates, and floor you with 'em flat — / All persons who in shaking hands, shake hands with you like that — / And all third persons who on spoiling tête-á-têtes insist — / They'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed!" http://bit.ly/eMFjF0
Letting the audience choose appropriate statesmen: "And apologetic statesmen of a compromising kind, / Such as — What d'ye call him — Thing'em-bob, and likewise — Never-mind, / And 'St— 'st— 'st— and What's-his-name, and also You-know-who — / The task of filling up the blanks I'd rather leave to you. / But it really doesn't matter whom you put upon the list, / For they'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed! ibid. http://bit.ly/eMFjF0
