I’m A McPalin Haiku Hysteria Finalist

Cool news!  Nearly 4000 people submitted haiku to the McPalin Haiku Hysteria contest held by People For The American Way and The Nation Magazine.  And I’m one of the twelve finalists!!!  So I’d really appreciate your voting for my haiku here. The three winning haiku will be published in The Nation.

We were allowed to submit up to three haiku, and here are the three I submitted.  (The first one is the haiku that made the finals.)

Palin knows nothing
About the Constitution.
Puppets don’t have to.

An anti-choice veep
Who opposes free rape kits?
Thanks, John, but no thanks.

Would Palin court picks
Destroy the Constitution?
You betcha! Wink, wink.

    Thanks so much Mike and Tumblewords. I guess they closed voting quickly because the winning haiku go into the last print edition of the Nation that precedes Election Day.

    Strong, biting…
    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    never elect a woman

    who’s a conservative
    she’s just a gender traitor
