Bush Growls; Dems Kowtow (Limerick and Poll)
I finally dare to fantasize that the Democrats may have gotten their act together, and they pull a cowardly stunt like this:
Just when the Dems at least are talking tough (even if they aren’t acting tough), they let Bush and Cheney intimidate them into giving them more spying powers. …
Can’t the Democrats just say “no,” as in “Sorry, you have proven that you can’t be trusted with increased spying powers, in fact you are still failing to fully inform Congress and the American people about the illegal spying you have conducted in the past and are still, apparently, conducting”?…
Unfortunately, my January 2006 limerick, George Bush Says His Spying Is Cool, remains valid. But that certainly won’t prevent me from writing another one:
Bush Growls; Dems Kowtow
By Madeleine Begun Kane
The Dems disappoint us again,
Backing Bush in his eavesdropping yen.
We need Dems to defend us
From Bush bills horrendous.
When will Dems turn from mice into men?
And now it’s time for a new poll, though my Bush impeachment poll remains open for business:
