No Penance For Dennis?

Since blaming Democrats and the media didn’t stick, Denny Hastert is now trying to  shift blame to his staff. (Via Atrios) And that brings me to my latest limerick:

No Penance For Dennis?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Hastert is blaming his staff,
But those in the know have to laugh.
Moms and dads are appalled
By his Foley bad call.
Does he think U.S. voters are daft?

    It all pales alongside Iraq,
    Cuz now we are royally trapped,
    Who’ll have the last laugh,
    When our dollars are strapped,
    and we slouch on into a draft?

    or, in a different style….

    US tells N. Korea “Stop That”
    to which they reply “Try to Make Us”
    deep voice China says “Doncha Dare
    or We’ll Drop the Dollars.”

    Thanks for stopping by VirusHead. I especially liked your first poem. And of course you’re right.
